Oh OK this just crossed my mind. In my country kim is a male name


arokace

oooooh, ok, now it makes sense lol :P


MioAkiya

Yeah shouldve written it in the title, but i legit forgot that other countries have kim as fem name XD


Alypie123

Fair enough


Lanto2067

In my country kim is most common first name And first name is not gendered (im not good at english maybe some wrong words and grammer)


MioAkiya

Really wish it was gender neutral here, unfortunately it's the short version of Joakim


EusisAX

Thank Xenogears for introducing me to the name Kim as also being a masc name. And I’d like it for a female name still, but for me it’d end up sounding… awkward with the rest of my name, without giving it away. I’ll take it as a nickname though.

XENOGEARS


stimkim

I hang on to that fact every day


kafka123

Kim is supposed to be a gender neutral name that can apply equally to both men and women.


MioAkiya

Not in Northern Germany or Sweden, here it's like the manliest man name unfortunately. Or are you insinuating that i don't know my own name in my own country?


greenflame15

This is chaos, mayhem even! Absolute disorder! Unbound upheaval! ... oh wait, that's just Discordia


MioAkiya

I think i chose the right name


Gomesss2090

I have been wondering how I would come out to my group of friends, when I eventually decide I am not still cis tho. I think you just solved my problem Also funny is the fact is that in my language "Discordia" literaly means "discord" (the noun, not the app) which is pretty funny considering the reaction of your family


MioAkiya

In greek mythology discordia is a goddess basically like loki in norse mythology XD that's why i decided to go for that name XD


Gomesss2090

Which is, in itself, also very fitting


MioAkiya

And the fact that im sometimes genderfluid (cuz of multiple personality) makes it even more fitting I AM CHAOS


DecidedlyStupid

Hey OP. No one is making fun of your name. Don't worry. They just assumed.


Tattieaxp

Hail Eris!


MioAkiya

Yassss someone who knows Greek and Roman mythology 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜


MioAkiya

Great i just realized that you are making fun of my name.....


Kimiloop

LMAO that’s my deadname too, but i’m afab xD


MioAkiya

Ok so.... MY NAME IS FROM THE GREEK GODDESS DISCORDIA. DON'T MAKE FUN OF MY FUCKING NAME WITH A PARODY RELIGION IT HURTS REALLY BAD AND I FEEL INCREDIBLY INVALIDATED AND SHITTY. STOP IT PLEASE.


Matild4

My sailboat is named Discordia. Good choice.


Empress_Alexandra

Why just be a Queen when you could be an Empress like myself?


MioAkiya

Fair point


WarriorSabe

I Want To Be A Cute Anime Girl is a vibe


Gr1mmch4n

Awesome name, I wish I had the gall to change mine to something so badass.


Fire_on_Bunn

I’ve been wondering how to come out to my family for a while tbh. I think I’m going to steal this idea and make my own version of this meme, if you don’t mind. I’m finally in a safe place to come out states away from the family. I know my grandparents will be supportive and my aunt/cousins in another state, but I wonder how much everyone else is going to shun me. :D I just don’t want to end up caught in an argument over my validity where they won’t listen and consistently quote incorrect transphobic facts. Only real question is, will I still get to keep a decent relationship with my brother? 🤔 My parents literally try to shelter him from anything remotely “liberal,” going as far as to enlist him in a private catholic school.


Organism212

As a Discordian Xope and DiscoWitch, I proclaim you forever blessed and affirmed by Goddess! Ave Dea Discordia, Ave Discordia! May you cause as much Sacred Chaos as Goddess! Please take a complementary cool religious title equal or greater to "saint", and Golden Apple gift bag at the table. Blessed be.


Organism212

(note: while said in a jesting manner, not a parody. I'm Pagan, and Goddess Discordia is my Goddess. I wish you only blessings and the best things.)

grei_earl

okay im sorry but i thought that was meant to be a femme version of discord like the messaging platform xD i searched it up and it's a goddess? perfect name for a queen 😌

MioAkiya

I love that ppl actually recognize the bsckstory of my name :3


MioAkiya

I just realized that most ppl probably don't know the actual meaning but rather the 80s thing...... Fuck.... My name is a joke to you. Thanks


TheWildAP

The only Eris I know of is the one who started the trojan war with an apple for the fairest goddess, what Eris is the 80's thing?


MioAkiya

Thank you. Finally someone who knows the heritage of my name. But in the 80s ppl created a psrody religion called discordianosm or something like that.... Incredibly hurtful to be talled about like I'm a fucking parody


TheWildAP

I bet it is, though in a weird way dealing with strife and discord from having that name is kinda fitting


Why_I_am_what_I_am

Are you a r/discordian ?


MioAkiya

No. It's from the greek mythology and incredibly disrespectful and hurtful....


jjackdaw

How is anybody supposed to know that without you telling them???


MioAkiya

Are you blind? I wrote a comment underneath my post saying that it hurts that ppl compare me to this. AND THAT IT'S FROM GREEK MYTHOLOGY.


jjackdaw

??? You posted that after these comments. I’m just saying you are going to have to get used to explaining your name when it is uncommon. I didn’t mean this as an attack, no need to be ableist.

whats wrong with eris I love eris
