@cambrian_era yeah thats wild. i mean like - i have fam members who wanted me to stay or go back in the closet because they think i'd be safer and that required some gentle but firm rebuffing. but like - "don't do that because it makes me feel weird" is some galaxy brain stuff
@Zoe The family thing is super frustrating because, yeah, it is safer, but they genuinely do not understand how bad it feels and that maybe if they cared about our safety, they'd step up and protect us.
@cambrian_era yes - this is basically how i responded. though i was more explicit with my mom "like. it was this or death. for me."
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
