At the age of 12 you participate in a ritual where you announce and describe your gender, and choose your new name. The community acknowledges this with the gift of a silver knife, engraved with this name.
@Aleums like... i want to live in a world where it's culturally acceptable for people to choose their own names and genders whenever
@Aleums I feel like I watched or read something recently where they did this but it was to kill yourself instead of getting taken by raiders
@Aleums the human body entirely replaces all it's cells every ten years(ish) so you could do a new ceremony for each decade as you become a new person.
