Nicknames

By , November 22, 2009 5:32 pm

Recently, I realized that I’m OK with nicknames in a way that I never was with my old name. That is, I’m OK with Becca, Becks, Rebsie (don’t ask), whatever. (Although I’m not OK with Becky.) But I was never really comfortable with variations or riffs on my old name.

It reminds me of my comfort with (and even pleasure from) shopping for clothing since transitioning. It makes sense – since I’m happier with my body and my appearance, of course I’d be more willing to try on clothing – but was nevertheless unexpected.
