Just for the record, I do know a Michael who is a her. Yes, it's on her birth certificate that way. To make matters even more confusing, she married a Michael who is a him.
This is why I always address my cover letters "Dear editor's full name

Obviously, I believe you when you say you're a him, but I wouldn't have assumed that.
