Hello! I'm a community ally

on Tue 23 Aug - 7:50
I'm more of an ally to the community, I've always thought and talked to people about this sort of thing and how it should be normalised and such! I'm 23, I hope I can help people here feel welcome too Surprised

In person I haven't, but online I have several friends who are! At least, open enough to let me and others know. In person I've mostly always gone with the very simple idea "If it's consensual and doesn't hurt anyone, then let it be", so I've never found this concept to be something gross or taboo or any of those things people call it.

That is so nice that you have that outlook, more people should just relax and let others be happy.

I think we all have unknowingly met others who are privately involved, or have been in the past, with family member, its a closely kept secret so outsiders never suspect. Most people simply think my brother and I are just close just like many other brother and sisters. We are affectionate with each other publicly, but limit it to what others consider normal. I suspect there are many other couples like us, and they keep their love life secret.

I agree! I think there's definitely a lot more people out there in these sorts of relationships who are keeping it a secret right now, or have been in the past in some way. It absolutely has to be more common than is reported, and I'm in support of all of them and their freedom to be open.

that is very much true Chapeau, and thank you very much for your support! open-mindedness and understand... it's always good to see and it gives me hope for the future too. The amount of allies out there is likely under-reported too, after all.
I've known at least one couple who takes refuge in audacity. Sometimes, that really worries me.

Keep your eyes and ears open, and you'll find others most likely to be involved. That "married" couple who looks alike? The adult who loves with their middle-aged or older parent even though they could live on their own?

Yeah! I'll never truly know unless they have the freedom to be able to be open about it, but I have most likely met several people involved with their relative, no doubt about it

Welcome good to meet someone who is truly accepting of us. My sister and I didn't meet until recently we are both middle aged people have a hard time accepting how we became so close so fast and that's just from our sibling relation they would never understand the romantic aspect of it nice to meet someone that does
