If people misgender me now days it's either because they knew me before transition, or because they didn't get a good look at me (I have a beard, but long hair). I don't worry about it because cis guys get misgendered too. I admit it does hurt when it's someone who knew me before because they should have their act together by now but there's nothing I can do other than remind them to use correct pronouns.
When I was just starting transition I did get a lot of ignorant questions, some were ok and I answered them (things like will your voice get deeper, will you grow a beard) but others I told them the question was out of line and ignored it (will you grow a dick, how do you pee, things like that)
