May 2017 rewrite/move
Hey folks! I've just gone and extensively rewritten this article to hopefully fix some of the problems with it, as well as update it with fresh information from the last few years—particularly the change of name (which is a legal change, I have paperwork!) and change of personal pronouns.
Unfortunately I couldn't reference everything I wanted to as the source articles are no longer online, though in at least one instance I have a printed, physical copy available.
I've included a few 'abandoned' external links as they're referenced elsewhere in the article so it would seem pertinent to include them somewhere.
