So, that's what was going on in between White Crosses and Transgender Dysphoria Blues. No wonder it took so damn long. Being a Streetlight Manifesto fan though, I'm used to long wait times between albums.
As far as naming goes, here's another thing to nitpick: If I'm referring to Heart Burns (that solo EP from 2008), should I use Tom Gabel since that's the name it was released under? I use the correct pronouns when referring to Laura Jane Grace currently and when referring to her actions in the past, but if I'm specifically referring to something having to do with her pre-transition life, I'll say Tom Gabel. I use say "she" and "her" regardless of whatever name, because she's a woman. Am I wrong/insensitive to do that? Serious question.
Wrong, yes, insensitive, nt really. Just uninformed. She has said that she wants to be referred to as Laura Jane Grace, and usually with trans people, they want to be called their chosen name rather than their birth name, since their birth name can cause dysphoria and make them feel like shit. So yes, at the time, she was using her birth name, but her name has been changed now, so you should use her chosen name even when referring to past works.
To a lesser extent, it's like if your name is Johnathan and peope used to call you Johnny when you were little, but you hate that nickname now and want to use John. You wouldn't want people to keep calling you Johnny just because you used to go by that.
