    Default LGBT people in the playground - part II

    Welcome.

    This is a thread were we, LGBT people, use to discuss, share our experiences, give general advice and support.

    Of course, everyone is welcome to post their views regarding the matter here.
    I just ask that we keep this topic free of politics and religion. It's beyond the scope of this thread to discuss whether LGBT is "right" or "not".
    Let us not post sexually explicit content as well, okay?

    If you would rather ask for advice or post your story or your view regarding the matter, you can use the address below to send an anonymous message to be posted in this thread.

    http://anonmail.smeenet.org/

    Keep in mind that content which contain strong language may be filtered, and content that goes against the forum rules won't be posted at all.

    Here's the link for the first thread, where much useful information lies:
    http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=62225

    And to start...
    It seems I have only a few weeks left before I have to go full time... Almost no one belives I'm male when I'm in guy mode... I tend to be called ma'am when shopping or walking around...
    This is clearly a sign that guy mode isn't working anymore...

    Now, let us continue with our schedule.

    Awesome, new thread! Thanks SMEE!

    I don't have much else to say really, except that I'm still open to PMs if anyone needs advice. Not saying I'd be good at it... but I'll try.

    Mmmm....that new thread smell. Smells like...Jasmine I think.

    I just want to say how happy I am that the hormones are really doing their job. I don't totally "pass" yet (still getting more sir's than anything else), but I AM quite obviously confusing a lot of people with my appearance and that's better than nothing!

    Also, I just recently bought myself an adorable little pill case for me estrogen:

    ^Make it bigger. We'll have a giant one host somewhere and someone with a bulletin board can Kinko's the thing and have a manual diagram too.

    Desperate, well meaning, and entirely non-joking invitation to a week of fun with people in das playground. Short notice compared to other ones, but whatevah. For details see below.

    Oh, and I might as well. If you (yes, you!) want to have fun at a (semi) traditional Oktoberfest, come to New Orleans. We'll have a gay old time (Puns Included!) and celebrate what's worth celebrating- ourselves. I am not liable if we are murdered, mugged, pickpocketed, or if we end up in Detroit. I won't be drinking, so I'll keep an eye on people. C'mon, I'm desperate here. It'll be fun. (Fun as in, "Pay for your own admission, food, transportation, and lodgings.) But seriously, I can't make any other Meet Up or Get Together. HELP ME!

    Please don't act like I'm the weirdest person you've ever met. Maybe next year with more planning or something. I dunno.

    I wouldn't place myself near the top of the graph. I'd probably be slightly below the centre.

    So, most people I know don't know I'm bi. What troubles me the most though, is that the person I feel most comfortable about telling, can't keep his mouth shut.

    Now I know what some people might think, that how can he be my friend if I can't trust him? Well the thing is we've been friends since primary school, and despite revealing things I didn't want him to reveal in the past he has always, always respected what I tell him despite the fact that a lot of people wouldn't. It's usually a case of him not realising what he's saying.


    I have other friends who have been more trustworthy in the past... but I'm afraid that they won't take me seriously. Oh, I've never been good at my handling my own secrets.

    Nice chart Serp, thanks for making it up! It didn't stretch my screen, but I don't think much will (2560x1600... love my 30inch monitor).

    I'd probably be in the upper left.. (2,2), maybe (2,3). I consider my 100% homosexual, but I'm not arrogant enough to say that there couldn't be any remote infinitesimal chance that attraction to a woman could occur. As for the Y-axis... yeah.

    So, here's a question for my fellow people who couldn't care about gender less...
    Or lesbians.
    Lesbians would work, too..

    Always before, gender never really mattered to me. I oogled and admired boy and girls equally, an equal opportunity lech.
    Recently, though, I've found my oogling tends more to women. Like, much, much more. Its very rare that a man catches my eye.
    And I feel really silly for asking this, but... is this normal to have such a shift in tastes, or am I being taken over to the darkside?

    "This is why it hurts the way it hurts.
    You have too many words in your head.
    There are too many ways to describe the way you feel.
    You will never have the luxury of a dull ache.
    You must suffer through the intricacy of feeling too much"

    Regarding the chart... I'd be in the middle of the X axis... and middle way to the top of the Y axis.

    Rabbit: Nah, it's quite normal. I used to ogle neither gender, now I mostly ogle guys... and... wow... there are some good looking guys around... <.<
    I too ogle girls sometimes, but it's mostly guys...

    Looking at the chart i would say i am probably at 2 on the X axis and haven't got much of a clue on where i stand on the Y axis, so probably somewhere around the middle.

    I just really like girls and have a hard time imagining myself being attracted to men, but i cannot say that men repulse me nor will i completely reject the concept that i might like the personality of a man enough to be attracted to him. It would have to be pretty immensely impressive though. As for amount of sex i like i really don't have any experience actually having sex which makes it pretty much impossible to determine. I know that i am not asexual nor focused solely on it though.

    As for "passing" i have to admit i have no idea how well i do it. People here tend to be polite enough to say nothing directly and when nobody ever addresses others with titles it is practically impossible to tell. I know that a lot of the local stores know about me, simply because they recognize me from before, but beyond that i have no real clue, though i try to tell myself that i do it just fine.

    I'd put myself at about (12,17)
    The concept of being in a sexual relationship with someone of any gender freaks me out.

    And I still think it should be nonsexual, as being asexual is something different and isn't really covered on the chart. It belongs more on the x-axis than the y, but still doesn't fit there.

    Yeah, as a general rule, X is the horizontal, Y is the vertical. Since they aren't defined as such it doesn't have to be, but labeling them the Sex/Gender Preference-Axis and the Enjoyment/Interest in Sexual Activities-Axis could become a bit tedious
