Hello, its nice to meet yall. I am Sophie, and as it says in my bio I am a 24 year old trans girl from Arizona, currently 3 months on hrt.

I found this website by searching for trans forums, because the previous trans community i frequented, /lgbt/ on 4chan, became too toxic and bad for my mental health. The people there just hate themselves too much, and they made me feel bad about myself one too many times, so I am leaving there forever.

I have never used a forum type website like this before, only imageboards and discord. I read the howto doc but still, I apologize if I am posting this in the wrong place. I will do my best to learn quickly.Β 

I hope you all will be willing to welcome me into your community.Β 

Thanks for reading,

- Sophie

@sophsauce Sophie:

Glad to have you with us and I hope that being here will prove to have a positive impact as your journey continues.

Interesting what you said about the other site. We do put effort into trying to keep this as an orderly and useful place for our members. To my way of thinking, trans people have more than enough pressure and negativity directed towards them without any inappropriate events from people outside or inside the forum. We do our best to consistently respond to situations as they occur.

Some years ago I was a member of a site where so many members carried a ton of baggage and all so many did was complain and vent. Clearly we all need to do that from time to time, but it shouldn’t be the main focus of every message that someone posts. That does nothing for the other members. Without a doubt, it was not a place where one should dwell. However, know that we are not perfect. Sometimes bad actors do slip through the cracks, but be assured that they will eventually be caught and banished.

As you spend time here, you will notice a broad spectrum of folks here in terms of their gender identity, ages, family situations, occupations, locations, coming out decisions and many other facets of trans life. To me, it is a reminder that we are everywhere and doing everything. Personally, I take comfort in that.

Going forward, I suggest that you complete your Profile page. It helps us understand you better, get a sense of the support that you have around you and what’s going well or not so well.

Regarding support, I suggest doing an internet search for trans organizations and LGBT centers in your area, if you have not already. Isolation is a significant problem in our community, but we humans are social creatures and it really helps to be in contact with others.

Also, I recommend that you do a search for members in your area and begin to get connected. Go to Social in the menu and then click on (New) Find Friends Beta. The results will likely be much better when you take a proactive approach rather than waiting for someone to contact you. From my perspective, the line β€œIf You Build It, They Will, Come” from Field of Dreams only works in the movies…
