really important. please read.
y’know what? FUCK IT. i’m gonna do it. from now on, i request y’all call me by HE / HIM or THEY / THEM pronouns. i know this seems like it’s out of the blue, but i’ve been thinking about it for a long time ( 8 friggin years ) and i have to stop thinking and start acting, so consider this a tiny baby step. and maybe presenting as masculine on tumblr will be enough to assuage my anxieties. maybe not. but they’re just pronouns and i need to start somewhere. as a result, i’m also going to be changing my alias, and instead i’m gonna go by ‘ KENNY / KEN ‘ which is a shortening / masculinizing of my middle name. i would very much appreciate if you would respect this switch, but i won’t take it personally if you slip up. as i’ve mentioned previously, no pronoun has ever really felt ‘ wrong ‘ to me, just a little off. i’ll be adding this to my rules shortly.
as a note, yes, yes i’m very very female presenting. i’m aware of this. if you’ve seen my selfies, if you have me on instagram / snapchat, you’ll be very aware. this is a larger process of self discovery than just pronouns on my tumblr rp blog, and there’s a lot more that’s going to go into it, and i have a lot on my mind these days in regards to how i present my gender. i would really appreciate if you could give me the benefit of the doubt, and understand that as someone who’s been put through an all girl’s school, who’s lived my life as a girl, who has been constantly defined as a ‘ strong woman ‘ that epitomizing femininity in my appearance has been a part of my Brand™ for a long time. still, as i consider all of this, i would appreciate if you just understand that my physical appearance has a lot of ramifications in terms of personal and professional relationships that i’m very very nervous about damaging.
thank you so much for your respect and understanding <3 i love you all.
