Reddit is advertising to me. They want me to buy a coat. I really, really like that coat. I like the price. I can afford that price. Problem is, I haven't had any HRT, so I've the size and shape of a male. Also, I've a broad frame as these things are measured for dudes, so even if I slim way down to a healthy weight, I'll never be slender. And healthy weight I am not. I wear a 3XL in men's sizes, sometimes a 2XL. 2XL in men's is roughly a 20 in women's, and that's stretching it, for a size that's already stretching it. That coat doesn't come above a size 12. So I can't have the coat. In the scheme of things, I severely doubt I'll ever really be anything close to feminine. My frame is just too big, my hair too dark and abundant, and I'll never be able to afford expensive laser treatments. That's not even getting into already being 26 years old and under a strict promise not to be open about my gender until Grandma dies, which could be a decade or more down the line.

Now I just feel terrible.

F~@$ that evil coat.

This is what happens when you let A.I.s do advertising. A.I., very Artificial and not very Intelligent.


I'll accept Rysky hugs today. Got a chemistry test in 1/2 an hour that I don't feel remotely ready for, and I'm depressed on top of this stress because a guy I thought liked me won't text back...

Don't give up hope, it's definitely possible; I'm sat next to the proof

So I just had dental surgery and I'm blasted on norco at present, and in blinding pain when that starts to ebb. So please wish me a swift recovery. The dreams while on narcotics have at least been amusing: dreamt that Wizards of the Coast licensed Planescape out, but it was published using a 'GOR role-playing system'.

A GOR RPG? Is that just a weird dream thing or am I (and DDG) missing an obvious reference?

Apparently one exists (a GOR rpg), but in this case the whole thing was my having a post-surgical narcotics-inspired nightmare. :)

Get well soon. I had all four of my Wisdom Teeth extracted at the same time, so I know that level of pain.

I remember how absolutely useless I was the next few days after getting my wisdom teeth removed. Don't remember a good chunk of that day. I took some pills, got in my aunt's car, it all gets... pretty fuzzy from there. Next thing I know, I'm waking up on my blood-soaked pillow.


Yeah, seepage will occur. I remember being nauseous from the taste of the Novocaine, which tasted like a Neoprene rubber Hospital glove.

I dont have an amusing or "fun" wisdom teeth story. I woke up a little less than an hour after the surgery and was completely coherent and fine the rest of day. I had been looking forward to happy fun times >_>

I just remember coming out of surgery and going to the pharmacy to pick up pain meds. I was pretty coherent mentally, but my jaw was packed with gauze and completely numb from novacaine so I couldn't talk coherently and was probably drooling blood I couldn't feel.

I guess they get that a lot at the pharmacy counter, but I got some looks from other customers.

Then I quit taking the pain killers a couple days later because I wanted to be functional enough to drive to that week's game.


Good Morning, Rysky.

Thank you :)

This wasn't major, just the excision of a (presumably) benign lipoma from my gum on one side. Pathology will take two weeks, but it's been around and unchanged for nearly a year so not too worried. I've just got stitches in the gum and it's badly swollen and I'm genuinely loopy and nauseated on pain meds. Tried to go to class today before begging out halfway through the day and getting my professors to excuse my absence in the afternoon. Sleep and more narcotics are on the menu this afternoon.

Should be better by the weekend hopefully.

I was suprised how accepting my grandma was of me but is a bit worrying for them in a retiring community with other retired people. Wow coming out to that many elders seems hard.

Well I went to my first Pride event today! It was just a short march around campus, but it was a good experience.

May wisdom and insight be with those who wish it on this day, and may the day be cool but not frigid.


here, the day is on the verge of actually being warm... and wishing wisdom and insight on International Alzheimer's day is kind of ironic ;).


Been warm over by me as well, which sucks, because I got the most flattering sweater recently and haven't been able to wear it!

I haven’t visited this thread in a long time. When I have been here in the past I have said things, out of ignorance, that offended some and for that I have always been so sorry.

But, I am in need of some education (about helping a family member) so, please, help me understand

Is it possible that a person can be bi, or poly, only in regard to physical attraction, but when talking about emotional bonding finds that they only feel strong emotions with one sex (either the same or identified as not the same)?

And can this be possible in the opposite

A person feels emotional attachments, strong (I’m trying not to say “love” because that is a difficult word to work around) for different types of people, regardless of how they identify, but are only physically attracted to one type?

I hope the question isn’t offensive. As I get older and my adult children’s lives grow and expand I am meeting more and more people and I just want to understand better

I wasn't around for that, so I don't know what you may have said, so I'll focus on the question at hand:

Yes! Absolutely! For example, I have friends that are what they call "bisexual homoromantic," where they find their own and other genders attractive, but aren't interested in a relationship with genders other than their own.

I wouldn't be surprised if that something similar applies even to some strongly heterosexual types - those who form their friendships with the same gender, but are sexually attracted to another.

Stereotypical "bros before hos", though they'd never phrase it as "homoromantic". Similar patterns among women, though often less toxic.

It's just as possible as someone who is asexual but not aromantic.

what about romantic towards both genders but asexual is there a word for that?

Biromantic I believe is the word for someone who is asexual but are romantically attracted to more than one gender.

Yup-- so you'd be a "biromantic asexual," in that case.

Like me! :)


I haven't got jiggy in nearly 15 years and socialising with people I don't know either bores or intimidates me, so I'm not exactly best placed to put labels on myself, even though that's a very Aspergic trait to do so. :p
