So here's a thing, I'm pretty non-binary and I really have two sides to me, at least at the moment. What I on some level consider my "deadname", really isn't very dead? Is there a descriptor that encompasses the perhaps-not-terrible lingering male remains of one's previous identity?
Folks I'm going with "yestername"; it doesn't imply anything other than temporal precedence and sounds kinda cool. ☺️
@andi undeadname? zombiename?
@andi Cursedname ?
@SuperCee I don't dislike it enough to call it cursed; it's just like, that space I inhabit when I'm not... Me?
@andi valid. hmmmmmm Forgottenname? Hmmmm Lostname? Abandonnedname? these are getting long i'm sorry lol
@andi "my Name of Olde"
@SuperCee My yestername.
@andi Oooooh that's excellent!
@SuperCee Yyyyeah I think we have a winner ☺️
@andi seriously that's a quality name that other people will probably pick up too. Excellent
@SuperCee *high five* Go team!!
@SuperCee Oldename ain't bad!
@andi gonna dispute the "kinda" in this sentence
@andi more mundane “old name” or “previous name”
@zensaiyuki Honestly that extra syllable totally kills "previous name"
@andi could go newspeak with it.
@andi i’ve always gone with ‘wallet name’ personally (tho of course that one only makes sense if you havent changed your legal name)
@Satsuma Ha, I like that!
This is the personal instance of Andi N. Fiziks. Love me or hate me it's still an obsession 😘
