In the pilot episode of DevDiscuss (DEV's first original podcast), @ben and @jess joined @penelope_zone for an important conversation about a major problem in our industry: deadnaming, or the intentional or unintentional use of a trans person's given name that they had before they transitioned
In tech, this happens all too frequently. For instance, certain websites and services make it difficult or impossible to change your name, which is often a very traumatizing, ongoing experience for trans folks.
Let me know in the comments. Also, consider making some time to listen to episode one of DevDiscuss. It will teach you more about deadnaming in technology, why it matters, and what we can do about it.
