    Default Coming Out ^~^

    Hey guys.

    It's been what, 2 years since I joined? And I have to admit, this place is awesome. I first just went to the main page, but then started really getting back into the team with us winning, which I felt was going to happen after the Rudy Gay trade anyways.

    But it's time to be serious here. I'm not Cody.... I'm Katherynne, or Kat. I'm transgender.

    I just recently came out to family, and well... figured I'd start on social media as well. I haven't started my transition yet, but well... it's getting there. Baby steps, you know.


    Don't worry, I'll still be the same poster I always was. Just.... well, figured I'd let everyone know.

    Thank you all, and have a good day!

    P.S. Mods, if a name change is possible, can we edit to Katherynne73? If so, thanks.

    Kat, congrats in finding your path forward in life. I'll flip this request over to Doc to make the change. You may receive new login info, not sure.

    I'm just feeling happy I could come clean here with you all.

    You are a brave person (from my perspective) for being open.

    Hope all goes well with your transition.

    The one thing we should all be able to say is that we are comfortable in our own skin, and that we're happy with ourselves.
    Glad you've been able to take a step closer to achieving that. Good for you Katherynne!

    Kudos on your bravery in coming out. Hope you keep posting here - diversity is a very good thing, and your perspective will be appreciated by most if not all.

    Good on you and officially welcome as Kat. Happy for you and glad that you've found a place that you are comfortable with enough to share.

    PS - this doesn't get you off the hook for Carroll

    Good luck Kat! This must have taken a lot of courage. Your RR family has your back.

    Mixed reactions.

    Most are supportive, some are confused, and some are 100% against me transitioning.

    Also... never call me bitch again.

    Axel beat me to it. The only thing I care about is finding someone to blame for Carroll
