You really want me to answer that?
In short: i'm kind of being a parody of myself by over-exagerrating things and pulling them out of their context a lot. With purpose to test how good this forum copes with these kind of thing. I'm testing out how far one can go, so it will encourage people to be themselves, no matter how weird they are, because they know you people can deal with it.
So, how is it going? That sociological experiment with us as your guinea pigs?
We'll see if it worked when someone else tells things about themselves that are considered controversial by society. I'm just paving the road for others. (at least, i hope)
The reaction of this forum is very interesting, in the fact that the general reaction is 'yeah, whatever, do what you want'. This proves this forum is more open-minded when it really matters than most of internet, or at least not against it. In most places, you would expect hate messages rather soon. Well, i haven't received one yet, so i can say this place is LBGT-safe. Now why would i use this place as an experiment? Well, after all this is an autosport forum, a typical guy place. (At least, that's what society says). Fact is that typical guy places are usually very transphobic and homophobic into the extreme. The fact that reactions on here are reasonable, means this forum just passed a huge
test. It also proves autosport is not an elite guy thing anymore. Don't worry about the lack of 'native females' here, this will just take time.
Then why over-exaggerating things in a self-humourous way? Well, it's a lot easier than just saying the truth, because of the simple fact that nobody takes it serious. People know what i'm saying is nonsens, but that there's also a hint of truth in it, because if it wasn't, i wouldn't say it. Humour is the best way to see how far you can go with people. And threatening to do it with others was just situational. Well, i have the feeling that i can now say 'things are going to change a lot, deal with it'. And it's not going to change for fun or for excitement. It's not actually a fetish, it's not just dressing up either, i was just very curious how the forum would cope with the thought of me as a female person. And altough i'm obviously different than other people here, people generally didn't see that one coming. Except for those who read the hints i already dropped. Nothing is without a reason.
More information than you wanted to know? I don't have
to tell this, but i choose
to do it anyway, because i like this forum, and i want this place to be a safe home for all people, no matter who they are.
Now who was that guy that wanted an LBGT team somewhere? Well, you can come out of your closet now, it's safe enough here!
