    Re: USCHO Memories: Back In The Day....

    honestly I'm surprised I still visit the forums almost daily. I used to stay away from the Cafe. I was a big Maine fan, had season tickets as soon as I finished grad school and couldn't get free tickets anymore. I went to frozen fours and regions. I'd travel to some away games. During that time I would read most of the threads related to Hockey East teams, follow score updates, etc. Eventually I moved further away and had a kid and life got busy so I started splitting my tickets with a co-worker. Then after many years into Maine's slide into bottom-dweller status, we both kind of got sick of making the drive every weekend and we decided to give up the tickets. I only casually follow the team now and for a while wasn't checking the forums all that often. Then for some reason I started visiting the Cafe more, and pretty soon it became a daily thing.

    I'm pretty sick of facebook, and really the only reason I'm still on it is because there are a few companies and adventure athletes I like to get updates from (thinking about switching to Twitter for that). I find the discussions on the Cafe much more interesting than anything I see on Facebook.

    Re: USCHO Memories: Back In The Day....

    I'm on Facebook, mainly to share pictures. Also on Instagram, and I'm starting to prefer that over FB. Once there's a viable alternative to FB, I'll take myself off that and move over there. If anything, I'm on social media to share my story and be visible.

    That's how I approach my Instagram. But it's pretty boring unless you like staring at the dumb pictures of rocks, asphalt, and light poles I post.

    Pretty sure the Instagram account of my dog has more followers than my account, and my dog is 100x better looking than me.


    PS. I do enjoy seeing your photos. You look so happy lately despite some of the setbacks. But that's life, it never goes as planned.




    Also, I'm kinda in the same boat as Mookie. I have family I keep updated through FB, and friends from back home that FB is the best way of staying remotely connected without having to attend stupid class reunions every year.

    Yeah, that's insane behavior. You have to be either incredibly clueless or incredibly callous. In many places it's a death sentence, and some of those places are right here in good ol' Murika.

    Depends on the person. I was okay with "he/him" until I came out. Now if you call me "he," I will punch you in the nose.

    My stepfather outed me to one of his friends. His friend said some not nice things. Stepfather really wishes I wouldn't call his friend a bigot, but now I see both of them as bigots, and while I will never see his friend again, my stepfather continues to dig a pretty deep hole. Among his greatest hits include "God doesn't make mistakes," "Mom would have been royally ****ed off at you," and "b-tch without a c-nt." I learned instead of responding, just look at him and think "dig that hole, *******."

    I wasn't being clear. Let's say I'm talking, today, about you when you were pre-female-identifying, whether that's 18 or 8 or 1/8th. Is the correct way to refer to you at that time as "she" no matter what you identified as at that time?

    Is this a stupid or offensive question? If so I withdraw it.

    That's horrible. He's obviously working it through (or not) and confronting what I'm sure are all sorts of f-cked up assumptions (which, when combined with superstition, can be murderous). But to do it out loud, to you, a family member, and a younger family member, is intolerable. Maybe he'll come around but that's all on him. It's no different from racism, sexism, etc. Bigotry that would be funny if it wasn't so mean.

    And right now, I'm financially strapped, so I can't afford to leave. I start a new job soon and that will help, and along with hoping to find a roommate and delaying a few things, like a breast augmentation... that should get me out of here in a few months. Until then, everyone has advised me to stay strong and don't give him the argument/response he so desperately craves. Just look at him and think "dig that hole."

    Yeesh. Foxton was nutso but there are lines you dont cross.

    People who are so small as to take real life stuff and throw it in the face of people on here are beyond pathetic. It happened to me on a much lesser level as well. If you know people IRL and they bring it here it is bad.

    Are you referring to the time I outed you as a Furry? I said I was sorry, man!
