my name is max Kai, but i was born Rebbecca. I'm FTM
this school year i have asked my friends and the people who know me to call me Max, being called Rebbecca makes me uncomfortable. But hardly anyone calls me Max at all, its alwys Rebbecca or Becky. (urg!)

So my question is:
how do i get people to call me by what i consider my true name?
How can i get my family to call me max without them flippin out?

thanks in advance for any help

-Max Kai

I don't know if you did this, but it would help if you explained why you want to be called Max. If you don't want to come out, I'm not sure how to approach it. But, your family will almost certainly not call you Max unless you tell them why, and they still might not do it.
People are set in how they see you, so asking them to call you Max will probably confuse them, and you may not get the ideal results.
But, if your friends are understanding and accepting, you can probably get them to do it. Beware, however, that if you want it to be a secret, it probably won't happen. Kids talk.

i think i will come out to some of my friends....but right now coming out to my family (mainly my mother) is not an option. crazy religious homophobia and all.
