I think that most people have at least one or two things they almost never talk about "in public". What I mean by this is things you enjoy or things about yourself that you avoid talking about with the "general populace" because you don't want to come off as weird or crazy. Things you don't necessarily feel guilty about, per se, but things that most people probably wouldn't understand and you just don't feel like needing to explain it EVERY time (or perhaps, you think people will judge you and you just don't feel like dealing with that.)
So this thread is your chance to talk about those things, without fear of judgement or anything of that nature. If you feel comfortable with it, please share these things. I feel being able to talk about these things is cathartic. Getting things off your chest. Things that are important to you but might seem weird or unusual to other people.
Maybe its a type of content you enjoy, maybe its a religious or spiritual thing you feel like might make people uncomfortable in normal circumstances, maybe it's life events or interests that define you but you never really get a chance to share them.
Think of this as a safe space, a judgement free zone, a place of open discussion and sharing. I advise using spoiler text as a way of talking about things without feeling like you're in a spotlight.
Since this is me making the thread, I'll start, as a show of good faith. Know that what I speak about is something important to me but that I often avoid. If I can do it, then you can too!
I actually have two topics, but I will only share one in this OP so I have more to add later.
The topic is: Otherkin.
Some of you may have seen me talk about this in passing before (or remember years ago I made a thread that talked about it), and others may be a little bit familiar with it through general "Internet Osmosis". But chances are if you've only heard it in passing, you probably don't have a good idea of what it actually is, as it has often been used in the past as the butt of a joke, similar to furries and whatnot, and you may have some misconceptions about it. Or you may have never heard of it at all.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
