Your gender identity can change! And that’s 1000% ok! You are still valid!
If you want to keep your birthname, that’s totally alright! Changing name is never a requirement for your identity to be valid. It doesn’t mean you’re “not trans enough” either. Your name is your own, and nobody has a say in it more than you do
Fact #703: You’re not a bad person for feeling hurt when people misgender you by accident. Painful things are painful, even when the people who do them don’t necessarily mean to do you harm.
If you are transgender you are so valid and loved please remember that
be proud of your identity!

(Three images with the trans flag as a background overlaid with text. 1) Trans Rights Are Human Rights. 2) Protect Trans Lives. 3) Trans Identities Are Valid.)
Who’s sweet doggo is this!?
Fact #665: You are not a bad person for avoiding the people who misgender you.
i hope every transgender person in the world has a nice safe day
Your chosen name is your name. Even if you chose it after a character or a story. Even if you chose it because you liked it better then your birth name. Even if you made it up yourself to fit you, and you only.
Your name is your name. And no one can take it away from you. ?
