Hey, folks. [Smile] I'm shifting back into the direct services after a little time off, and I want to make sure no one gets lost in the shuffle.

If you've a post or conversation that were hanging before the board break that you want me to step back into, or have a new post you want my feedback with, can you drop me a line here? I think it's more likely I'll be sure to catch everyone that way than if I try and weave my way back through the posts myself.

Thanks!

Hi Heather! I hope you had a great break. [Smile]

I'd really love your feedback on my new post if that's okay, I got really upset today.

It's not a mental disorder, hells no.

Not sure where to put this, but in the article:

http://www.scarleteen.com/article/advice/why_does_getting_fingered_feel_better_than_sex

There is a "lies" instead of "likes" in the paragraph:

"So. You have some preferences, like most people do..."

Hey Heather...Could you please remove my topic that I posted over in Relationships.

I told my ex to use this site for help like I said and instead he found our conversation, printed it out and now wants to show it to his parents so they can "help us find a solution."

I'm really upset that he printed conversations that I specifically told him I wanted to keep private (I get they're on the internet, but I wasn't planning on showing them to his parents or mine or anyone else). I don't want my conversations being printed out again. Could someone help me out please?

Of course.

And UGH. I'm so sorry that he continues to behave this way.

By the way, we do have a passworded, private area for users who want to keep talking about something where it is vital their privacy is totally respected. We tend to use that rarely, but have used it mostly for users who have had it violated by someone else.

So, if you've an interest in that, we can move it to that area for you (it's in our staff-only locked area now) and email you the password.

That would be nice. I feel like I'm a little in shock now because he did not even seem to understand why that was a breach of privacy or how it could hurt me.

Let me get that set up then, shortly. I think it'd be a good idea to talk about that, and I've no doubt you could use some more support around it.

Heather, would you be able to reply to the last two posts in the YAY! forum, fish for a compliment thread? I think loneranger especially would love a good compliment. [Smile]

Hi, Heather. [Smile]

I know that it's been one year since this thread was posted in, but I just wanted your advice on a thread I was thinking of starting, and I don't know where else I could ask you regarding this.

It seems to me, after reading several entries, that there are quite a few folks at Scarleteen who might benefit from a thread that deals exclusively with the struggles experienced as a result of attempting to reconcile religious beliefs and sexuality/gender identity, because questions relating to the Bible, etc., have been posed more than once. Would that be inappropriate or potentially offensive to some of Scarleteen's users?

I know that you have already posted an article regarding the Bible and sexuality/gender identity, but I feel that it might be beneficial for some posters to express their experiences on this topic, as it is currently debated hotly among religious, especially Christian groups, and folks of queer sexuality can find it especially hard to find support depending on the religious community that they're in. This is true for both myself and for many of my religious friends who are also queer. This is because, whereas some communities are extremely tolerant, others can be extremely discriminatory and close-minded.

I'd love to hear from you regarding this. [Smile]

Sorry I missed this, SansNom.

In general, while Scarleteen is a secular site, we're totally okay with people discussing different religions and issues with sexuality and religion.

All we ask is that anyone having those kinds of discussions aim to do so in a way that respects the wide range of religions, spiritual belief systems and lack of either in the community, and that people don't claim to speak for the whole of a religion or its g-d (when we're talking theism) or talk about any of this in a way that is...well, judgy. [Smile]

I appreciate you asking! [Smile]

Thanks a lot for the reply, Heather. [Smile]

I will go ahead and start it, then, and I will be sure to clearly outline the guidelines for discussion as you pointed out to me. [Smile]

I hope that there won't be any issues with this, as religion is a very sensitive topic.

If I happen to miss something, please feel free to put it in for me. [Smile]
