Transgender Girl needs acceptance. Oh where can i go now?

a topic in Welcome Desk: Introductions & Arrivals, a part of the RPG forum.

First time on RPG? Make sure to introduce yourself here! Tell us what you're into, what you're looking for, and how you found us!
i have gone to a multitude of sites. Many ones such as like this or close to similarity with the vast exception of different formats. Styles and layouts. I have been faced with mockery. detesting demeanor and sheer mockery. All from the word Jump. I was just this new person. New. i didn't know what to expect. Who to go to. what to do... Nothing. I knew nothing.

I was looking at every site that i could get a hold of. And to me... i felt as if things would work out. But then... when i mentioned that i wanted to do a Transgender themed... They all fled. Revered me like i mattered not to them. I was disregarded by them. Then they tried to accuse a friend i know of being like me. When they were nothing like me.

This site: http://roleplaysocial.net/

has demeaned me. Made me feel hopeless in getting an Rp going. What did i ever do to deserve such awful treatment?

What am i supposed to do to get someone to help me? Don't i deserve any help... at all? Is that just so so... hard to ask for? For help? Assistance? Maybe someone to step up and want to be of any help? *Sighs*
I am a transgender girl. You can either accept me or take a hike. I am who i am and take no shame. For those who seek to judge me. Go right ahead. Take your best shot. But it won't change my resolve.

You'll be fine here.

As much as I'd love give you a full speech of acceptance, I won't. Seems like you've been through a lot.

Dude, here at RPG, we don't care. I mean, we care about you as a person, but we don't care whether you're of this sexual orientation or that gender identification. Or, rather, I should say, I don't care. I shouldn't be speaking for the site at large.

If that's who you are then that's who you are. Now, go tell some stories and have fun here at RPG.

Don't forget to breathe and drink water. You've found a home, I think.
Like a stranger on a grate, or a skylark, or a taper, flying ever upward and knowing of love's satiety. Our dreams beyond the Sun and into the expanse of Night doth sound a quiet hymn.

Hey,

Just to add to these guy's reassurance above, you'll be fine here. I've just come back to RPG after more than three years away, and I have to say its been by far the best place to come and RP that I've found since ye olden days of yahoo (actually, more so than yahoo- ignore me, I'm rambling).

Anyway. If an oddball like me can ghost on people, leave for years and come back to acceptance and warmth, then its gonna be good for people who don't carry that baggage too.

You're gonna be fine.

Those who belittle others are nothing more than ignorant, immature idiots. Welcome to RPG and enjoy every type of RP that you desire. If someone doesn't like it, that doesn't matter, because someone else will eventually. There is a variety of genres for a reason, and you will fit right in I'm sure of it.

Good luck. xx

I tired joining Roleplaysocial and left within a day or so. All I wanted was to add a few links and got treated badly by a member of staff. I ended up deleting my profile. I don't like to say bad things about a site, but the admin encouraged copyright violations by allowing/adding anime and music videos to the site. It's not the same issue as being bullied for being Trans, but it's the kind of site I'd avoid like the plague based on my experience of it alone. I hope you find your RP home.

If you'd like to discuss transgender issues, we have a lovely forum for Discussion and Debate. This is a theater where we objectify personal issues; many times I've worked out my problems with mental health by discussing with fellow RPGers, at a safe distance.

Otherwise, roleplaying is about fictional stories. You can send abusive users to my parlor (discussion-debate-f61.html). They can try to defend their thoughts about trans until they are blue in the face. Abuse includes ad hominem, such as using information about you as a person as a weapon against you.

Or, you can privately message anyone on our moderating team. We're here to make your stay comfortable.

I'm so sorry that you had to go through something like that. That's absolutely horrible. My wife is a trans woman. You'll always get acceptance from me. :)

I've found this site to be a great site. I've been here about four or five years and have seen a lot of great RPs. :)

This is truly my favourite place to RP. I've been a member for years, but when I switched computers I lost my login info like a dummy...lol But you will have a wonderful time here, I feel. There will always be a few bad eggs here and there, but the majority of the people on this site are wonderful and welcoming. <3
