So I've set up an email under my deadname and under my real name because I'm not out most places so mostly I just want my current name on stuff that I use a lot personally and I don't have to do any explaining about. Also, because I've spent a while using my chosen name with friends and my legal name at work, I think I've associated it with personal intimacy in a way that seems uncommon with trans people generally.

Which is mostly funny because while switching over corporate logins that I use regularly, I'm like "Target, you're asking for my name? My personal, non-business name? Nah. Dropbox is fine though, me and Dropbox go way back. Panera you're on thin fucking ice"
