My favorite joke as a kid was the character in "Sheep in the Big City" named Private Public

My name is Kady DJ Violet, I have identified as a woman since I was a young child and came out to my parents about a week ago as the singularity hit its full head of steam. My parents call me K as it is the fulcrum between my past name, Konnor, and my current self. I named my personal apocalypse “Ronnok”

congrats!
(is that the right response? I have not been an audience to a trans coming-out before tbh. I'm hoping your parents have been supportive)

My parents are being very supportive, it is a very big weight off my shoulders and overall I feel comfortable moving forward with being out. Thank you for the congrats, Oxnard, that is a welcome term because it felt like I had to give birth to myself again and it took some serious labor to get here. This all being said, it is a learning process, and it is all one step at a time. I learned how to paint my nails yesterday and today one of my fellow patients did my eye makeup and now I look like Mads Mikkelsen in Dr. Strange :p

We haven't really talked that much on here Nameless but I do want to say congrats and I'm happy to hear that your parents have been so supportive of you. I know coming out must've been difficult but I'm proud of you for going through with it and wish you all the best of luck.

I think being judgemental is fair in this instance, like, there is a perception of "out" people being accused of doing so in order to rectify past guilt and there are degrees of validity in that. I've been a frustrated mess for years and I've said a great deal of shitty things to all of you in wake of my struggles - it's absolutely a moment where I want to apologize from the bottom of my heart to everyone and carry on the best I can posting here. I'm feeling a great deal of liberation and support from my surroundings, it's pretty amazing and makes me want to lend the same energy. Thank you, and all, for the support. Much love, much respect

So I'm working on a project, a great deal of the conversation held here will be involved so I'm kinda curious as to how exactly I can handle an, er, autobiography of sorts when so much of my life has taken place in this particular format. It's quite a lot more ambitious than a traditional autobiography, after all I'm only turning 30 so I'm hoping this encourages people to keep living their lives to the best of their ability what with all of this madness currently erupting. It's a mixture of reflection and current events. It's going to involve the concept of purple, I want everyone to feel royal after reading this

In the spirit of physical distancing, I will extend my hand for a "high five" but move it away before you can reciprocate, saying "too slow" as I do so.

Was there anything particular that made you come out? Were your parents totally caught off guard or did they have their suspicions?

A) Hmm, around always. I'm bi, I see different balances in my attraction and it's kinda simple in practice... it's evolutionary to my situation, who will help in the moment

B) I've always been out but carefully so, after all it wasn't until about 4 years ago before Canada had anything close to comfortable trans rights, and yeesh we are not there yet. My friends and contemporaries would often mention my femininity, and I'm far more attracted to "Female" thought patterns. It's my resonance which guides me, who ultimately brings me comfort.

You see, I create constructs, I tear them down, I take what I need, I leave what I don't, I go off and build new constructs and hope that this process is getting easier each time I do it via repetition and practice. If you want to know the secret on how to live forever, just ask, I'm sure you don't want to know the answer, or already do

What does that mean? Be specific. The cynical, identifying with the old school sentiment of 'that's life son' mentality, side of me doesn't gel with this millennial attitude. Maturation IS a complicated process. Fraught with a shit ton of mental anguish. At least for me. A straight, albeit minority, male. The struggle is good. Struggle breeds progress.

I don't want to get too political here...BUT...I'm going to say two words in a little bit and than want to read your take on him. He's someone that's helped me deal with a lot of my bullshit and reduced my anxiety. I do understand that he can be a controversial figure for many. I get it. But if you really listen to what he says, with the topic that most applies to this thread, it's not as incendiary as many made it out to be. His point was about free speech and it unfortunately got conflated into being anti-LGBT.

I'm doing a bit of rambling here to cushion the topic some. I'm being genuine here and am curious about how someone with your experiences feels towards this dude: Jordan Peterson

You aren't saying anything wrong here. Every day is a struggle, shit, I almost had a heart attack today but I'm too petrified of the hospital construct so I just pet my cat and focus on my breathing until the pain stops, and try to maintain that. Life's tense. I'm not really a millennial either, I was born 1990 so I'm generation Y. Genealogy is dense, my family tree runs very deep. Some basic examples are - Vikings, a general in William Wallace's army, Captain Cook, a member of British royalty who eloped with the gardener. It's all real. What will it take to get you to believe in magic? It's real. Real. l. L

Free speech is free consequence and, unfortunately, we are all subject to it. Clearly I have been more careful (it's a joke, chill) than a great deal of you so it's time to level that out a bit. I understand what your friend is trying to say but there is a time and place and sometimes that time and place is never, unless you know for certain the contents of the seeds you are trying to spread. It sounds like, fortunately, your friend made the right choice because it is a symbol of generation (if you want me to be more specific narrow it down)

Alright, down has been narrowed. Yeah, impressive body of work but kind of an idiot just going by a brief scan of his wiki article. Start from the beginning, work your way up

You need to remember that I'm not attracted positively who? To people I inherently dislike. There are some structures which I can destroy immediately, and others which will not occur until well after I am dead, which may never happen. Eyes open, I'm debating how much rest I've earned tonight

You get it, right? Every night, every fucking night someone sneaks into my construct and takes me down, sometimes they kill me softly, sometimes they kill me atom by atom. Here I am, standing before you today. I am, The Nameless One
