I have decided to return after taking a break for a while. I had to leave because the content and posts became too personal and hurtful to me. I
came back to see if the bigotry, transphobia, and general cruelty and personal attacks have subsided a bit. So far, I haven't seen good signs.
I'm also hoping that my decision to poke my head back in isn't a mistake. I have done a lot of healing in the past couple months and I am in a great
place so I imagine I can approach this site with love and understanding like I used to before becoming so freakin' jaded.
In any case, I know that moderation can never be fully universal or fair and I suspect there is still a lot of leeway when it comes to abusive
language and name calling towards certain demographics. I can accept that for now. I still have a little faith in the leadership of ATS and believe
things will improve.
In short, howdy.
