Today I come to you with the next edition of my world famous LGBT+ General serial.
I come with an announcement this time, something suuuper duper cool!
I'm nonbinary! Five years after coming out as trans (give or take a few months) I have discovered a new path of my identity. After a good long time considering things and talking to other nonbinary people in the community, I was directed towards a few different female-aligned identities that might better fit how I feel about my gender and whatnot.
To make a long story short, I was told about this one identity called "Nixera" which defines itself as "An identity comprised of both genderless and girl-aligned aspects. These aspects can be experienced either simultaneously, fluidly, or through fluctuations. Intended for those who feel both connected and detached from womanhood and for those who have difficulty distinguishing their alignment from their gender." Basically, I vibe with this identity and feel that it better encapsulates my feelings about myself than just "I'm female".
That said, my preferred pronouns have not changed, nor have my priorities in terms of my transition. For those who don't know or can't remember, those pronouns are EITHER She/Her (very obvious, everyone is aware of these) OR Ara/arach/arachs/arachself. Basically use whichever set you feel like because I'm comfortable with both, but if you really want to make me happy, use the latter.
All right, that's enough about me in this header, please enjoy the thread.
-EVERYONE MUST READ THE OP BEFORE POSTING IN THE THREAD-
This thread is all about LGBT+ so you can talk about your experiences, coming out stories, things you've done or taken part in, at cetera. Really just anything you want to talk about. If you want, you can even just hang out and talk in a safe space.
Please keep all arguments and major discussions out of this thread. If you see something someone said that you would like to discuss in detail about, please make another thread. Any other major discussion points can make a thread on /townhall/.
Please keep in mind that this is a positive environment. When responding to people, use affirming language rather than challenging language. In short, do not try to deter people from their courses of self discovery.
Discussion of dysphoria should be kept in the realm of personal experiences and helping people through those feelings if they have them.
Also if you are not LGBT, you are welcome in this thread, however do not talk over the people who are LGBT. You're more or less guests here, allies or not, so please act like it. I know pretty much all of you are good people and wouldn't even think of doing anything, but it's important to say.
Terfs, transmedicalists, and anti-Mogai are, as always, not allowed.
More additions to the rules of conduct may be added in the future or future threads, but for now that's about it.
I would also like to point out that if you would like to use this thread as a general "hang out" thread, you are welcome to do so. Posting here does not require you to stay on topic of LGBT issues or anything like that, just be kind and courteous to those who do want to use the thread for that.

i'm so happy for you val <3
>hugs and kisses <3
now i am curious, but please let me know if i'm overstepping my boundaries, but what does the Ara/arach/arachs/arachself refer to in your gender identity?

thanks <3>hugs and kisses <3
It doesn't really have to do with gender identity so much as it has to do with spiders. Which I have a HUGE affinity for. It's partially a kin thing (theriotype is the correct term when it's related to animals specifically) and partially just... it really fits me and I love spiders.
My friends helped me come up with it.

thanks for explaining it to me! and it's cool how you bring those kin identities into something that people can refer to you in natural settings. i don't think i've heard of that before, but honestly i think that is something i feel a lot can benefit from ^^
thank you so much <3

You're super welcome! I am glad to explain what I can.
And yeah, it is pretty cool, really. Neopronouns are really cool in general, I feel like they can benefit a lot of people. There's a lot of generalized labels for people and sometimes they can seem constricting to people. So having a bit of something that applies to mainly you, something by which you will be referred to often, such as pronouns, can be really nice to have. It's a lot like names.
Being able to draw kin stuff into it is really the benefit I get most from it, while others might find a different benefit.
I really never thought of ever using neopronouns for myself, I have always been fine with the she/her or even they/them, but after finding some that fit me so well and hearing people use them on occasion, it's really become something that I really enjoy and that brings me comfort.
Pretty much the only time they get cumbersome is if I'm trying to do RP or something, so I usually just switch to she/her because it's so much easier.
I still have trouble keeping up with neopronouns, myself, both my own and others, so I do understand where the difficulty comes in. Especially with writing, I have a few characters that I've pinned my pronouns to and it can be hard to remember.

Transmedicalist is someone who believes you have to have dysphoria to be trans, among other things.
anti-Mogai is a whole other long explanation that basically boils down to the same thing: people who gatekeep gender and sexuality for whatever reason.
Both basically don't like anything that isn't just a simple, easy explanation that's easy for society at large to digest and accept.

they do sound pretty cool ^^ i imagine they would be a bit difficult for people to remember, so i would imagine people who prefer those pronouns would remind people or have some sort of signifying button for people to read?
but yeah! it's so instinctual to use pronouns that are specifically about gender like he, she, or even them to a certain degree. but what about people that find more meaning in other things that would be a better reference to them? i never gave it much thought before, but i like that kind of progressive implication <3
but yeah! i'd be happy to refer to you as ara/arach (and if i forget, i'll probably default to she/her so forgive me ><)>>1034395
transmedicalists are people who point to the biological differences and psychological dysphoria as necessary to prove that somebody is transgender, and are often critical and dismissive of enby people or people that identify as other genders without dysphoria. and MOGAI stands for Marginalized Orientations Gender and Intersex, so people who are anti-Mogai would include TERFs, who reject transgender orientations; as well as transmedicalists, who reject non-binary orientations or gender expression that isn't linked to psyhchological dysphoria and/or biological structural difference
both transmedicalists and anti-mogai are considered harmful to the trans and overall LGBT community because they further gatekeep and divide the community, and often end up fueling discourse that marginalizes trans people and preventing further discussion and humanization in public eyes
i second this
it's not a walk in the park subject matter :PP
As is the whole topic. Which is why I generally don't partake. But thank you anyway.>>1034398
Better not get into the the topic then. You guys have fun.

Usually, yeah. I mean, like I said, it's a lot like a name. When you first meet a person, they're not usually going to remember your name just immediately. You might have to remind them a few times. Generally online people put their pronouns in their bios and whatnot, and in person there are indeed buttons and patches such to help with that as well. And of course, verbal reminders if it's necessary.
Even using them in writing to refer to a singular person can be difficult for me to remember sometimes, since pretty much the only thing that was important to me in school was English classes and as we all know they're not very keen on singular they, or at least they weren't at the time. So it's really just something I have to keep working on to be more accepting and break through old habits of mine. Which is actually the entire reason I give some characters different than usual pronouns! It's better that I mess up and have to edit something when writing a character than it is to mess up and accidentally hurt someone who's actually real.
I would very much appreciate it! But, again, she/her is perfectly fine and I still vibe with it VERY much.

language is weird and ever changing, and as such to learn and remember new things is not foreign to us either ^^

In general, yeah.
I'm doing okay! We actually just had to put our dog down today. But it's been a long time coming and I made my peace with losing her a long time ago, it just finally got to the point where it was getting really difficult for her to do just about anything. The issue isn't really having her die, it's how empty things feel without her.
But I'm seriously fine. Everything else has been... pretty much just normal. Parents are out of town in Nevada because my mom's best friend's husband died a week or so ago and they're doing a small thing for that.
Also my sister moved back home! Which is... nice, but also not great. Because she's trans and out and our parents are... well, there's a reason I'm not out myself really. But it's been pretty nice having her around and now we get to hang out for a few days without the parents around.
So all in all it's been a mix of bad and good but I've been surviving it without too much of an issue.

Yeah, I hope things go well.
Yeah things have been okay so far. It's honestly nice to have someone else in the house. If she wasn't here, with my parents gone and dog dead, the house would feel really really empty. I was worried about her moving back, but it turns out it's worked out for the best.

ooh i got one more question!
you said you kin with spiders, is there a particular spider that draws you most?

me too <3
No, actually, just, like, all spiders in general. It's honestly a super unusual kin for me, I feel a connection to spiders as an Order.
From a fiction perspective, I also kin Ungoliant (from the Lord of the Rings/Silmarillion), and she is known as the "Mother of Spiders". So perhaps the two are connected.
Obviously as a sort of, like, catch all to make things simple, I like to go with the Black House Spider as a sort of mascot for it all. It's just a simple creature. It's got the stereotypical spider look without the connotations of a Black Widow.

>>1034465>>1034465>Because I don't want to participate in the discourse but don't want that to be taken as being against the topic.
... how would simply not participating imply that you're against the topic?
I think announcing your going to hide the thread actually implies you're against the topic. Seems like the exact opposite thing you would want to do if you're not wanting to come off as if you're against the topic.

i don't know if this counts as dysphoria or not, but it's a very odd experience that i've been having the last few days
due to the more stay-at-home lifestyle as of late, mixed with being submerged in work, i haven't really shaved my face in a couple days, and have kind of a five o' clock shadow, which is presenting an interesting experience for me
like on the one hand, i think i look alright in a beard, and gives me a unique look
but at the same time i want to shave it all off and magically become pretty and girly in the mirror, as i have made all my characters in games and drawing
i've had these feelings before, but i've had it much harder these last couple days, and just wanna share it
like "yes! i look good in a rugged guy sense" but also "i wanna shave it off and be a pretty girl"
life is weird
>>1034510>like "yes! i look good in a rugged guy sense" but also "i wanna shave it off and be a pretty girl"
cognitive dissonance can certainly a part of dysphoria
I have similar feelings about my voice.

i imagine it probably would have. that's why i'm really riding on this bigender/genderfluid thing
but it does lead to a lot of doubt like "am i really genderfluid/bigender? or do i just like the cute girls and stuff when i see them." but then i get all happy and feel all good when i imagine myself in the shoes of my avatars, and would just be in heaven as a girl as well.
i want both, but i don't want the uncertainty that comes with it ><
you like your voice then eh?

I have a similar issues.
But mine more has to do with laziness than that I like looking good in a guy sense. I DO look really good with a beard, particularly a short "shaved a week or so ago" type. But I don't WANT to look good as a dude.
But executive dysfunction, laziness, and almost constant fatigue keep me from shaving it. Shaving it as in taking a buzzer to it. Actually shaving it has the added issue of being difficult to do and more often than not leaves my face feeling weird. Same reason I don't shave my legs or arms.
As far as if it's a dysphoria thing, I don't know. It certainly is in my situation, but is it in every situation? I don't really know.

sounds like you and i have similar issues in that sense ^^ i have definitely avoided basic hygeine stuff because brain don't do too :PP
for me, it doesn't feel like dysphoria in the normal sense, as it isn't something that makes me feel bad per say. I like the way i look as a guy, but i also wanna look and be a girl too. They sorta just coexist somehow :PP>hugs and kisses <3

That certainly speaks to the idea that you are bigender or genderfluid, then. Kind of a slight dysphoric feeling but not one that makes you feel BAD exactly, but that gives you some small issue related to how you'd like to present yourself. Gender indecision maybe?>hugs and kisses <3

i would say it feels like Tension between the two
like my rational brain knows that it's okay to have both experiences. but just growing up and experiencing a world that is either-or, it feels like i should stick with one or the other.
right now, it's kinda the difference between offline and online for me
offline, i am a man and interact with people as a guy. i think that is mostly just because with my family and friend group, i grew up as a man and that's how i know and interact with them, and i don't feel like rocking the boat with that yet
but online, i am a girl, and love to express myself as much. it's liberating and lovely to me
i don't the IRL experience, and can enjoy myself quite a bit, but i do often wonder what it would be like to blend the worlds a bit more ya know?
i feel like i'm rambling a bit ^^

That's literally how I live my life as well.
Honestly I can't really say much in regards for what to do. Since I'm more or less in the same situation, I can only say what I do, and that's that I keep things completely separate.
Some day when I move out and have my own place or have a roommate that understands, I'll actually come out in the real world, but for now it's best that I keep it under wraps.
Not really sure if that'll help you or not.
Also it's okay to ramble, that's part of what this thread's all about!

It's been that way with pretty much every game recently.
Still waiting for Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines 2 and Cyberpunk 2077 and all those games people have been waiting for.
I just watch whatever looks interesting. Stuff about games or movies or TV shows, sometimes game stuff.
That's pretty cool. I kind of haven't been interested in playing Animal Crossing lately. Pretty much since I got it, really. So I'm super behind on it.

it really is an at your own pace sort of game, the only really tense part is getting villagers you want versus demon spawn like Gigi...
i learned my lesson the hardway about being too stringent on who i invited. i had like a dozen great villagers, but they weren't the ones i was looking for, so then i got one i just don't want in its place :PP

I have no idea.
That's one thing I'm not looking forward to.
Well, I got all villagers I couldn't give a shit about so that's probably a big part of it. Also it's just not really that fun for me. Not really my type of game, I guess.
I would love any villager other than the ones I got, honestly.

Yeah, I'm glad you and other people are having fun with it! Like, I enjoy aspects of it, but it's just... another game to play. And I haven't felt like playing anything lately, so it's pretty low on my list of priorities.

I tend to think I am a good singer and actually enjoy singingquite a bit, but it still brings the dysphoria front and center cause my external voice feels counterintuitive to me. I tend to dissociate from it. >>1034519
I generally had a similar problem with being lazy about my appearance. I think though that it just might be dysphoria though, like it leads me to value it so little. >>1034520>>1034521>for me, it doesn't feel like dysphoria in the normal sense, as it isn't something that makes me feel bad per say.

I would often describe my dysphoria not so much as negative feelings towards my body as much as it feels like it's counter-intuitive. Which by itself is not painful, but like an uncomfortable feeling, like that feeling you might have when you feel like you need to adjust your position in your chair or when you write with your other hand, only ... when I feel it, it's not like I can do much to make it go away. So it becomes like water drip torture.
So, for me I can get the idea that it both feels bad but also.... doesn't?

disease is when you are sick. Any sickness whatsoever is a disease.
Definition: a disorder of structure or function in a human, animal, or plant, especially one that produces specific signs or symptoms or that affects a specific location and is not simply a direct result of physical injury.
sickness and disease are the same thing
A virus is what gives you a sickness or disease. Having the flu is not "having a virus". Influenza is a Virus. "The Flu", as in the thing they call being sick, is the disease that having the influenza virus inside you gives you.
If that makes sense.

Naw but like...in the past six months or so I feel like it's been a bit of a roller coaster. Like it went from:
-Okay slightly open with a few close trusted people
-Now, more open kinda/sorta, but more emotional love with these other people
I'm just like, mildly confused but also pretty ok with it all. I think I've reached this comfortable point and can just accept that different people give us different things.
Or at least the best I've come up with.

Everyone wants to be with a cute demon. Those are the kind that act like darlings to get what they want; now, a real demon
, that is, a really decent demon, in my opinion, is one that likes you but doesn't put up with your shit. That
demon will bring you to strength and help you meet your own expectations, and is a true friend, even if it is not always glamorous living with them.

There's plenty of gayness in it. Less gayness than Dragon Age 2, though. But it's one of those games where the characters have their own sexuality so you can't just date all of them regardless of gender. There's plenty of gay options though.>gays back on star <3

Dragon Age 2 had all but one companion available to both male or female Hawkes (the character you play) to romance.
Gayest game I ever played... I don't know if it counts as a game exactly, but the Visual Novel Heart of the Woods is one of the gayest things I've ever experienced.

I've never personally played it but it's the... least popular of the three games? But that's mostly because it was so much of a departure from the first game that people didn't like it much. Inquisition is more of a combination of Origins and 2. The combat is like DA2 while the customization and story is more like Origins.
It's a lesbian romance/mystery story. That's how it's gay.

Inquisition is really good, even if it does feel a bit outdated at this point. But DA2 would probably feel even MORE outdated... Either way.
Yeah one of the two main characters is also canonically trans, so that's also really cool. The two main characters run a monster hunting youtube channel kind of like the Buzzfeed Unsolved series, so they're investigating a supernatural mystery.
There's also a very gay ghost, and she's the best part.

It is pretty lighthearted for the most part, but it does get kind of dark.
I mean, for a visual novel it's not dark at all. But from an objective standpoint, it is dark at points.
It's just like... realistic. Serious at points, funny at others, sweet, cute, scary, whatever.

I don't typically have anything to contribute to this thread.
But one of my last riders this morning was kind of interesting. I got a call from the person who called the ride, and I was told I'd be picking up his friend - who was currently walking west along the main east-west highway through town. Where I picked him up, he was a 40 minute walk from where he started, which was the Greyhound station.
The guy is from Baltimore. He's homeless. And he fancies himself as a social media influencer. He goes by the name "The Gay Nomad". Apparently he was kicked out by his parents, ostensibly for being gay, and now he travels the country making the best of his situation and enjoying life. He seemed a bit quirky in person, which is best explained in his YouTube "about" section as being Asperger's.
He has 114 subscribers on YouTube.
I'm glad he's enjoying life, but I'm also a bit worried about him. He seems quite naïve.

it's unfortunate, but a lot of LGBT people are homeless. A very large amount, actually. Same goes for people with mental illnesses or disabilities. Usually these things are connected, like with this guy.
It seems like he's trying to make the best of his situation, which is a good thing I suppose. Would be better if he didn't have to.

to whomever the anon i snapped at was. i apologize for being snappy and angry.
while i have my objections to the type of humor used was, i didn't choose to be diplomatic about it. i instead chose to be passive agressive and snappish. that was uncalled for
if you are reading this, i apologize for my actions. you didn't deserve me being a jerk.

I kinda love this comic and keep thinking about it.
God, Thorax introduced me to that artist, gray Folie, and all their stuff is really interesting and deeply raw
in that Night in the Woods kinda way. Thanks Honey!
But yeah, I do personally grow tired of feeling like I have to explain myself when I've never understood it myself to begin with. It doesn't come from a concious place within me, it's deeply subconscious, it's primal, it's in my impulses and drives and in my dreams at night and in my daydreams when my mind wonders sometimes. Its in my intuitions about how my body is supposed to work and feel. I just don't have any idea why though, I have never had any idea why, it's just what's been happening to me for as long as I can remember. I don't know why when it does happen in a dream it makes me feel as joyful and fulfilled and relieved as it does.
The fact that I can't explain it doesn't change the fact that I am still experiencing it. I can't prove I am experiencing what I am experiencing internally. It's unreasonable to expect anyone to prove their internal experiences with external evidence. Would it be reasonable for me to demand you prove to me that your favorite drink is your favorite drink with physical evidence, or to explain precisely and ultimately why you enjoy it before I can accept what you claim your favorite drink is?

look, i know this probably isn't what you wanna hear Mike, but
you don't live with your parents, yes?
if you do, then that sucks, and i hope you figure this out
but if you live on your own, then fuck what they think
you're your own person and they can find out you're pansexual when you feel like it
don't let their bullshit even factor into how you conduct your life and relationships

I don´t know why, dun wanna make people uncomfortable with bad memories if they have been thrown out from their homes as well.
People tend to find the dark sides of the warm heart stories that i seem to find and share. Then jump on me for posting such things. Anything ill post, do and say feels like dancing on a mine field, even when i start talk bout weather

You don't have to worry about that here. If anyone gets on you about something I'll go off on them.
It's a safe space, sharing warm hearted stories is part of that and if anyone has an issue with it they can leave.
