Hey everyone, got a personal announcement to lay down.
TLDR version: I'm coming out as trans and will be identifying as female from now on. Please call me "Rebecca" and use she/her pronouns, thank you <3
Alright so here's the longer version: People who have known me for years will not be surprised that gender identity has been a confusing topic for me for a very long time. Those feelings and thoughts sort of came to a head within the last month or two and I had to do some deep contemplation about what I really wanted from my identity.
Over the years I've kept snapping back and forth between feminine and masculine, and I've come to realize that most pushes towards something ultra manly was often me running away from being feminine, which is what I actually want. It was always a "you can't pull this off" feeling, but I know with time and work I can, and that it'll be worth it.
I'm not asking a great deal of any of you really. I'm going to be wanting female pronouns (she/her) and I'm going to be pushing my name as Rebecca where I can. I'll keep "Immelmann" account names and will just treat it as a brand or character last name. "Immy" is pretty gender neutral so I won't complain about that, but I really will prefer Rebecca and variants of it.
Fairly sure I'll be staying a raptor, just in a redesigned fashion which I'll be uploading soon, but you never know how I'll feel about animals in a month or two.
I guess that's it, any support and respect will be appreciated and I'll answer any questions that aren't super rude or stupid.
