when you're trans and have an 'androgynous' deadname & when you change it and everyone reacts like "well why can't we keep calling you ******? it already works as a ****'s name!"

1 boost = 1 dislike

@jennie i have an androgynous middle name and I kinda sorta like it but I'm not sure if it's enough to keep it

@moviewitch my deadname is probably more common for girls than boys, but I still can't help but think of it as a boy's name because that's how it was used on me for 24 years

@jennie yeah absolutely. Even if it's neutral or girl leaning it's still intrinsically linked to That Time In Your Life
