Well, according to some TERFs, that if you change your name, that means you’ve “cut off” the parental link…I am not even kidding..,
If you actually believe this, you need help.
It starts off with “A name is given with love”.
Which might, in some cases, be true. Although reading through some of the comments, it seems that some parents gave their kids their names…cause…
Myself, as an example, I am named after Lauren Bacall. Which is pretty cool. I do feel like Lauren, but if I didn’t, that has nothing to do with my parents.
*You know* after the last couple of days this seems so not important, however, I will continue.
I could call myself…
It has nothing to do with my parents, and my “connection” to them.
How about yourselves? Do you think changing your name cuts off the connection to your parents? Is there a cool story behind your name?
