Hi! I'm new here and to the LGBTQ+ community, and still not sure if I really belong here, so I'll post an #introduction.
Mid 30s, male, married. I often question myself and who I really am, and feel the need to talk about this. I'm not ready to talk to my few close friends or my wife - there's too much chaos and unanswered questions in head.
By joining this instance, I hope to find people I can freely talk to and who may be able to help find answers.
Thanks for reading!
I hear rustling as I am about to open my bedroom door. I freeze.
It finally happened, as I was warned it would. I kept them waiting too long, ignored them too long. They have gone feral, wild.
They call for me.
As is their right.
I open the door, and all my unread books swarm me.

the difference between birdsite and fedi
birdsite: fuck you. you don't even exist. who are you to think anyone could ever possibly notice or care about you
fedi: we are absolutely going to like you. we are going to like you *so hard* that your phone gets hot and your app slows down so bad you have to restart it to post
just gonna put a general 💜 here. y'all know what you did
im having a hard time wordsing this but. sometimes i think about the concept that colors might not look the same to everyone? im not talking about like, colorblindness, or other physical differences in how your cones pick up light, i mean like if you sent the same eye signal to two different brains what if they process it differently enough that even though we can all collectively apply names to wavelengths and communicate "color" they don't *look* the same
I'm so pathetic.
Me and my wife just talked about how much we love each other and then had some time to wait for dinner being in the oven.
This would have been the perfect time to talk, and I knew what I wanted to say, but I just couldn't open my mouth.
I hate myself in situations like this.
Coming out, boosts welcome
Today is coming out day, and just remember that you don't need to come out if you know you aren't going to be safe if you do. You are still valid and wonderful and I know you will become yourself when it is right for you. You don't need to rush.
If you do come out and it goes badly and you lose your family, guess what: I'M YOUR FAMILY NOW AND I LOVE YOU NO MATTER WHAT.
Note: I'm seeing poly people and LOTS of queer people favouriting my toots on #SexPositiveDnD .
I am new to being queer and poly, so if you see ways I can improve my representation, please let me know! I'm just basing these on people I've met, or people I want to be!
I mean, of course let me know if I wander onto a harmful stereotype, but also just if I could do a better job.
eye contact, selfie, relationship+, transition+, boost highly encouraged
This time of year marks the tenth anniversary of my enby wife’s and my marriage. Ten years, transitioning from a heterosexual man married to a bisexual woman, to a queer trans woman married to a nonbinary ace person. I hope someone out there feels hope reading this. Your queerness doesn’t mean you can’t be happy.
collapsing world view, gender
I always thought it normal for people to independently define parts of their identity as some gradient between male and female.
But reading about non-binary gender identities blew my mind and everything I thought to know about people, by describing this was so special... It never came to my mind that most people defined themself as fully belonging to one gender.
How can this be?
My mood now: confused, shocked, disconnected from reality
on the term "sleeping with", mildly lewd adjacent, sex mention
I wish the "sleep with" euphemism for sex, as well as the association between beds and sex in general, would just go away.
For me sleeping together with certain peoe, whether in the same room or bed, is something that makes me feel safe if I'm very distressed or tired. It's a warm bonding experience that humans (and other animals) can do with one another -- a safe place. It's rad as heck.
"Sleeping with" is a silly euphemism that creates room for stigma, confusion, and embarrassment. Let's stop using it. Thanks!

A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
