Coming out -- finally doing it 

Enough of the deception, I'm coming out.

I'm a nerdy white guy.

And if you're not, and society is giving you shit for it... I am behind you all the way. You be you. Force the rest of the world to accept it! I'll help! No matter what!

I don't always understand what you're going through, and I don't always care, and frankly I'm kinda dense. So you're going to have to bludgeon me from time to time. Please do it. Tell me how to help best!

@icefox I get that this was well intentioned but please don't do this.

re: Coming out -- finally doing it 

@icefox Allyship is great, and encouraged! And it's okay to say that you try to be one! But please leave the language of "I'm coming out" to those who are actually doing that in regards to a marginalized identity.

(Unless I've horribly misread, in which case I apologize.)

re: Coming out -- finally doing it 

@starkatt Why? I feel pretty damn marginalized with some of the bs that gets slung around here sometimes. Aren't we supposed to be all in this together?

re: Coming out -- finally doing it 

@icefox You said "So you're going to have to bludgeon me from time to time. Please do it. Tell me how to help best!"

This is me trying to do that as gently as I can.
