I have edited out your email address, as posting it is against the guidelines.
Additionally, please realize that Scarleteen is not a place to pick up people, be it for a pen-pal relationship or any other sort of relationship. If you'd like to discuss issues relating to your sexual orientation or anything else that is relevant, you are most welcome to do so here at the boards.
cici and Stud, This has already been addressed in Orientation and Identity. This forum is not a place to find penpals or friends, it is a forum for discussing issues. In accordance with our guidlines, we do not permit users to exchange contact information, so please do not make further proposals to chat with other users.
Further violations of the guidelines may cause your posting priveleges to be revoked.
That's pretty unlikely and let me explain why.

These particular guidelines are there to protect everyone's privacy and to help ensure that these boards are a safe place.
Do to the sensitive nature of our subject matter and the ages of everyone here (13+ meaning many of us are legally minors) it's just a lot safer to have this rule in place. Keep in mind that it's very easy for someone to pretend to be someone/something they aren't on the internet and that no one here but the sexperts and advocates have had to prove their identity.
There may also be some legal issues involved in as well but I don't know much about that.
Ashy I wasn't looking for a penpal, I was asking of he wanted to talk about something here. Got a problem with that? I know the rules. He was disussing something and I was asking if he wanted to discuss some more!
