   Unabashedly necroing my own old thread; but I'm back.

(Incidently I think that means there hasn't been an idle-users cleanup in years)

Various crap IRL caused me to drift away around the time that Korra was being added to the multiverse (leaving a half finished threadlet in which I try and explain that making characters I've never heard of like Korra seem like real people is one of the things Gryphon is really good at; not that I've watched any Avatar since then).

Anyway, towards the end of this period of "various crap" is the thing I thought it was worth reopening this thread for - I've started gender transition and changed my name (does anyone ever look at the names in profiles anyway?) so I'm now Natalie (pronouns she/her or they/them). (I actually identify as non-binary but that's another whole confusion of fish).

If anyone has questions I'd be happy to answer them, but there's probably a better place than the introductions forum...

Are you me? Because I stopped reading for a while around when Korra started being a thing, and I've been transitioning as well, though for me it was realizing I'm genderfluid and finally acting on that. I'm still going to be Zemyla here, and online in general, though, because that feels like a truer name than either my given male name or my chosen name for when I'm presenting as a woman.

But yeah, aside from that, it feels like an eerily similar trajectory.

There were far too many conditions to be satisfied before I could come out to myself. I had to admit I was fallible (everyone should), I had to overcome my fear of becoming unemployed, and my partner and I had to achieve financial stability; leaving me room to stress about other things. But also I had to learn the language that meant I could be not a man whilst also not really being a woman. I was ready to go into the pool; but not to dive in you might say.

Ten years earlier and I'd have to dig into much more obscure places to find words like "non-binary", "genderfluid", and so on. Twenty-five years ago when I could really have done with them I don't think they existed.

I'm sticking with 'Senji' online; people generally seem to react to it without gender preconceptions even though the original is irascably male. Kids of today just didn't read the classics :-D

>But yeah, aside from that, it feels like an eerily similar trajectory.

Well, I think the only reply to that is "congratulations!"

Oh, I haven't dared to run that thing in ages. I'm too afraid it'll come back and there'll be like seven users left. :)

Anyway, welcome back!
