I mean, not that it's hard to change oyur name. I dropped a last name when I was a kid, but it's one thing to drop a last name or go from a somewhat gender neutral (my girl name's not unheard of for guys) to another somewhat gender neutral name. But, um, I'm pretty sure a girl going to "Ryan" will raise some eyebrows. So, I don't know when you're supposed to wait or if the law here'll be lame and go "Change your name with your sex". I stll don't know when I can do that here.
I wouldn't mind waiting- but with this Orphan Works thing the idiots on high are coming up with, I'd rather not add another bit of confusion into the mix.
