bunch of trans academics: you could have been using your chosen name all along
me: WHAT
trans academics: yeah your CV and journal titles aren't legal documents
me: WHAT

so trans academics who aren't aware of this, you can use your chosen name everywhere

@Cyborgneticz my uni has this process where you can put a preferred name on everything that isn't a legal document through a simple form

although your ID card has to have both names on it...


@cdmnky we have that last bit and we had that but then they switched to this university wide system made for corporations that Has your "preferred name" but it still reads as your birth name anyway
