TL;DR I made embarrassing mistakes and have tried to learn from them before returning to Toyhouse.
I had to take time away from Toyhouse for awhile. A long time back, I was dealing with hard things in my RL and I interacted on here in cringey and inappropriate ways. I'm not excusing myself. I'm explaining myself. It was on me to learn what I could from my behaviour and the responses it rightfully got, and while it didn't take me this long to realize all of this, it was only now (08-30-20) that I felt I could come back here and try to be the better person I need to be.
As a gay transmasculine man, I find more comfort and interest in reading, writing, and having community involvement in male-loving-male stories. I like female characters just fine. I like women just fine. I like all gender identities just fine. My characters are representations of myself, parts of me. We don't condone conversion therapy to convert gay men and women into straight men and women, so I don't think it's reasonable to demand gay men (and women) to not predominantly read, write, and have community interest in male-loving-male stories. I have dysphoria, like many trans people, and staying within that community triggers it less. My mental health is important to me. I will not be made to feel ashamed for being homosexual rather than pansexual. I will not shame anyone for their life choices that do not directly harm another.
No one is required to accept me on Toyhouse. To that end, I do not feel required to pander for acceptance of every single person with an account on Toyhouse. I will try to be the best gay transmasculine man I can be while offering kindness and empathy to people who would take it from me. If anyone still finds fault with me, that's ok. That's what the Block feature is for, and I wholeheartedly advocate for the use of it to help you make your Toyhouse experience one where you are most comfortable and happy, even if it means blocking me along with anyone else. Your TH account is for you and no one else, and only you need to approve of what you see on here when you have the tools to curate what you see.
Thanks for reading this if you did.
