Bernard Cordelia Yu
But I think I’m going to try this for a while. I think I like it.
I’m keeping my original boy name and I’m adding a woman’s name. The two together fit how I feel inside. I will try to remember to answer to both, together or separate. From now on, feel free to use neutral or feminine pronouns for me. Do not use masculine ones.
I think I figured out my gender:
Biologically: fuck you. —me, on secret Twitter
On one hand, “Cordelia Bernard” flows better. But clash between the “d” and “C” in “Bernard Cordelia” forces people to slow down and realize that yes, this is a multi-gender name. My name, life, and soul as public service and activism.
I hope Cordelia Naismith Vorkosigan approves.
