So, I wanted to know, how old were you when you realise that you identified differently.
Professor Oak asked me, "Are you a boy or a girl?"
I didn't realize the significance of how I hated the idea of picking "boy" so much and loved the idea of picking "girl" until years later, but that was already in place. Pokemon Crystal came out in 2000, so I can't have been more than 8 or 9 years old.
And also, any suggestions on how I should proceed from here.
It sounds like you're already on the right path, but hey--might I recommend a bit of Bi Pride merch? Nothing says "I accept you" like "I literally bought you a thing with the flag on it." It's not a "must do" or anything, but it's a nice gesture!
It's definitely, like... a Thing. I don't know enough about the main deities of Pathfinder or the iconics or what-have-you (beyond the occasional WLW nugget, which--this is actually the first I've heard of three of the main female deities being in a polycule?? rad).
That said, it's a double-edged thing; WLW gets a lot of the rep for two big (bullshit) reasons:
1. A lot of straight men think sapphics are hot, but are turned off by MLM.
2. Women are seen as having less sexual desire; a WLW relationship is more likely to be portrayed as love and kisses and romance whereas people have trouble seeing men as led by anything but their... loins.
It's one of those things that we're starting to see turn around, here and there, but progress is slow and I'd love to see it get some momentum. In the meantime, bless Lil Nas X for doing Arshea's work.

I've definitely read some stories along similar lines, although I'll admit they usually end differently... hmm. ;P
I'm so sorry, Cori. My mom just lost a dog three days ago (she was, like, 17 or so, and I'd say it "finally caught up with her" but she was an old dog years ago). We got her when I still lived with Mom, and we're going to visit in a week, so it's going to be rough for all the same reasons.
Sometimes it helps to know that someone else's heart is grieving like yours. Best wishes to you, Cori.

Well, hey, if you haven't seen Jesus Christ Superstar yet, I've got good news for you!
I'm a Christian, but boy do I hate the Christian church most of the time. Looooots and lots of stuff that they've just sort of... invented, wholesale, that doesn't appear in the Bible or that was slapped in at the end by Paul (who sucks; I don't consider anything he wrote to be from God).
...BUUUUUUUUUUUUUT that might be a little too involved for this forum ;D
I also think they should add some kind of "repeating" firearm at a much higher price point. I'm NOT talking like a revolver or even a metallic casing. There's weapons that have internal powder and projectile magazines that being reloading to a lever pull. They ALSO have the tradeoff of making a misfire so much more exciting...
Are we talking a Pepperbox, like PF1 had?

Oh! I don't know how I didn't notice! Thanks much!
All I can offer aside from Mark mentioning it in his videos is a reason for “why”: it’s an action-free way to deal damage, once you’ve got them inside of you. A barbarian can still run around the battlefield with a halfling digesting in her stomach and lay waste to that halfling’s friends without really slowing down, so I’m guessing the damage isn’t higher because Balance.
This is all speculation on my part, though!
So I don't know if this is, like, even an appropriate venue to raise this, but I do manage a queer-focused gaming Discord server. It's kinda a safe space but we would really love to get some other LGBTQ+ people in to run some Society games too. I'll pop a link here - discord.gg/r6Qk6vf
Looks great! A little too populated for my comfort level, but I liked what I saw when I popped in.
I was gonna say...
Although there’s some evidence that the language he was using actually included the language that people (women especially) of the time were using in correspondence with one another—which is interesting! It’s commonly taught that he made up words wholesale, but that would make for a poorly-understood play.
Which is rather unrelated to the point, but
