Re: [SAFESPACE] LGBTIQQA Thread - Queer Support!

I came out as trans to my uncle last night and everything went better than expected. So that's pretty much my entire family covered.

I posted that I'm trans on FB today. Pretty much everyone close to me already knows, but it felt like a good thing to do.

Something I found useful when coming out to people I was nervous about was to tell them beforehand "There's something I'd like to talk to you about." It's marginally easier than saying "I'm trans" directly but essentially doesn't allow run-hiding as an option anymore, so you self...

Re: [SAFESPACE] LGBTIQQA Thread - Queer Support!

I don't think of it as pushing the testicles up/in as much as it is sort of... rotating them around laterally until they end up above the base of the shaft. Surprisingly not-uncomfortable, though they have an unfortunate tendency to slip out.

As I have more intimate experiences I have with people of various genders and body configurations, rigid categories "gay" and "straight" feel more and more painfully artificial, unnecessary, and constricting.
