Deadnaming: Disrespectful Big Deal, Or Historical Accuracy?
 
# 1 : Monday 29-10-2018 @ 20:05
 
 
To deadname someone is to call them by the name they had before they changed their name.

It is usually used in reference to transitioned or transitioning trans-people who have adopted a name in line with their existential gender.

But it could as well refer to the artist formerly known as whatever, or a Pompous Pope or Unremarkable Monarque.
Or someone who changed their name by deed-poll, or someone who never uses their birthname but prefer their nickname, or someone "famous" who insists on taking their partner's last name, or an activist asking you not to use their "slave name", or someone who had a religious epiphany, or a Gaire avatar that no longer wants to be associated to his/her past persona.

Would you see the fact of calling someone by the name their chose for themselves as a sacred duty towards respecting their chosen identity?

Or would you consider that you have the right, especially when referring to their past, to use their past identity, whether or not you are trying to make a point regarding your level of approval?

Are "deadnaming" accusation used by politically correct elites who want to keep the well-meaning people at bay by accusing them of not being "woke" enough?

Or is it a legitimate concern about people purposefully undermining the trans-rights for gender recognition?

I think this is a push to be honest.

you can do any number or things to undermine someone if you're mean spirited enough or have twisted enough motives.

But this is too specifically "a thing" to qualify as "a thing" in my book.

You mean Sharyn?
It is an example, if she makes a point to not call her that.
Or if loads of people who do not know how she feels about it make a point of being offended on her behalf if you do.

Another example would be the calling of UK xenophobe/racist Tommy Robinson by his real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon.

Yaxley sounds a very English name ... is that why he changed it ?

Boris Johnson's family have a very south African name I think
Trumps family name was changed
Philip mountbatten was something German
And liz Windsor most German name ever
I suppose if somebody is xenophobic there's no harm in pointing out their original name ...

Yaxley may be very English but Lennon is pure Irish. Tommy Robinson (sic)'s mother is from Galway. Ironically he wants a racially "pure" England...

With trans people I feel this is simply about respect. I feel using their former name is disrespectful. Not only that but it can potentially upset the person hugely with them having to relive the past.

What is wrong with their education system that it’s always second generation immigrants or children of foreigners they turn into xenophobes and racists?
They need to reform their whole education system.

Dutch man, 69, who 'identifies as 20 years younger' launches legal battle to change age

He is ready to stop receiving his pension for the opportunity to change his tinder to 49 (to match the age his doctor told him his body was) and also get better employment prospects.
