    I went with the name Riley because I found it edgy, simple and I've always loved it. Like my current name it's not that common (Natasha.)
    I may not be trans but I do identify as gender queer and I like keeping in touch with my inner man all day e'ry day. It's a good one and I like it a lot. You guys can still call me by my username however, it doesn't really matter heh.

    It's kind of a milestone since finding a name can be a deeply philosophical journey, and your name could determine the outcome of your future in certain ways. It's not as clear cut as most people would assume. Took me a couple years, and parents even take a long time deciding on names for their babies too.

    I chose "Willow" because it was already what my fursona was called and I was like "yeah this works"

    i went by "Harley" for a long time because i just found the name cute but confident, and i really wanted a name that sounded confident...but i decided later to make that a middle name that people can still call me and made my first name "Nico" just because i think it's beautiful. i mixed those two because i want to feel beautiful and confident, and i think it was a good start.

    You and I used to talk on AIM sometimes and stuff. I went by Ahkmill and I was a Weavile then.

    So I have a weird genderish question.

    Are there situations where it would be deemed offensive to address a group as "you guys" ?

    My instructor seems to be worried that he is offending me whenever he says "you guys". And I reassured him that it doesn't bother me, but he's still uncomfortable about it.

    Now obviously "you guys" is his default way of addressing groups, maybe in part because he's spent the past 10-20 years teaching a profession that is largely male dominated. So maybe he's just trying to be courteous, and he feels he is being discourteous to lump me in with the rest of the guys? I don't really know. But I wish he'd get over it, I rather be seen as one of the guys, rather than having my femaleness made a deal of. So I do kind of want to talk to him about it to try to get him to stop feeling uncomfortable, I feel it's disruptive to the class, and I am also kind of uncomfortable with him drawing attention to the fact that I am female, even if it's by accident.

    Anyone got some thoughts or insight on this? Am I thinking too hard on this? Am I being crazy, am I even asking this in the right thread?
