United Front: Names Can Hurt (022)

A discussion of how important names and re-naming can be for individuals, both external and within a plural system.

Published March 03, 2019

Names have power, and what we name our headmates can create harmony or friction within the plural system. Buck of Crisses takes us through several types of hurt we can commit from mis-naming, labeling, and dead-naming.
