Why do you come to Susans.Org?
« on: August 14, 2006, 05:27:16 am »

This site would be nothing without the participation from thousands of visitors here at Susans.Org
I was curious to find out what brings y'all here! :D

To clarify the options:

1) To talk with like-minded individuals - Seeking support and affirmation for my personal experiences.

2) Self-education and information - To learn more about transgender, either for myself or to help with supporting an SO.

3) A meeting of minds - To debate. To challenge and be challenged by the views and opinions of people from all walks of life and gender spectrum.

4) To provide information - Share personal experiences, relevant resources and links with the transgender (and SO) community.

5) Portal to the TG WWW - To find links to transgender resources on the WWW.

6) Other - Please share with us below.



Thanks for your input! ;D

While my reasons are close to those stated for the "To provide information" option I do not think that option fits.

I come here to help others, more than any other reason.

Nice poll....

Personally I am here to provide information (via experiences) to other people.

But I totally agree with Emerald and Kimberly..... I am here to help & support others in any way I can.

I was originally drawn in by the articles.  After a while, I wanted to talk on a forum and noticed that there was one here and that's about how it started.

I choose to provide information too, but I am also here to offer help and support based on my experiences.  I have learned many new things from others too.   ;)

My option wasn't listed.

I was in therapy for severe depression, although I knew what was wrong with me.  It all spilled out in a therapy session.

I came here because I wanted people that felt like I did to tell me that:

confirm that these feelings were lifelong and would never go away,
to confirm that they would get stronger with time,
to confirm that it was near-impossibly hard to transition,
and that life after transitioning was so difficult, that suicide was a valid option.

I got the first three here, I still envision in my mind that the 4th is true, but the wonderful people here at Susan's tend to prove it wrong by simply being who they are. It's also why I stay, maybe one day I won't be so convinced of it.

I come to Susans for all of the above reasons. 

I chose #1 because that is what we do a lot of here.  We talk, support, share, nurture, help and stand with each other.  All of us have expereinces to share.  All of us have experiences we need guidance with.

I agree with Robin.  All of the above would be a great choice.

I chose 4, to provide information, although I'd say it as to share information.  I do have a lot of transition and transactivism experience, but I'd be leaving a lot out if I didn't say I learn a lot here and that I've come to really care about the cast of thousands here.

I originally started to read the forums here at Susan's, along wth the rest of the site, for education and information about what I was feeling and how I fit into the spectrum.

Now I come for all the reasons listed plus one, to share and be with friends.

thnx all!

I chose To talk with like-minded individuals, however I think the poll wound have been better suited to have been multiple multiple choice.
I'm also here for information and education, givving advice from my personal experiences, and well what ever other reason I end up posting here.

I found Susan's a long time ago and then it was for support and help. I have now gone through the process, with the help from people here past and present and it has been an amazing journey. Some of the people that gave me the most help are not here anymore and I have thanked them, but I can not thank them enough. As time went on, I have done everything on the list, I think. Right now, I hope that I can give information and education to those trying to go through what I went through, eventhough I haven't had it rough and don't know some of the answers, but maybe give support and hopefully an uplifting hand and guidance. I thank Susan for having this website as it has helped me considerably.
I didn't know we could pick more than one, as I only picked one.

When Leah and I found Susan's we were searching for asnwers and sujestion and how to's on the journey we had undertook, and being only at the treash-hole there was much need for this. So I chose #1. However here I found something sort of unique and special. In reading others posts and answering their plea for advice I found answers to some of my own needs too. It taught me that we all have the ansers about personal things within us if we only look deep enough and be honest enough.

I like to help lend an ear and help others see things by asking questions such as have they thought of this or maybe is it that to help them figure and find that the answers to what they seek personally is really with in them.

You know after looking at these answers I found that our reasons for what we do change with the personal growth process. so the reasons may eventually be all of them if we are her long enough.

This past week I found another reason as I was going through some personal bumpy terain I hadn't been through before not related to TS issues. I came here and went on chat because I couldn't think of anywhere else I had I could go. So you see I come here because I know I can and there will all ways be someone to listen when I need to get something out.

Smiles,

I chose Education and information because that is why I first came here.
But I stayed To talk with like-minded individuals.
And know I want to provide information, actually to help other. Could be by lending an ear or a shoulder to cry on.
I also still come here for support and to just be with my friends.

I come to susans.org for two reasons: One of my clients originally told me about susans.org.  I wanted to become better educated on transexualism and I also want to provide accurate information on electrolysis too.

If I had to choose one reason then it would be to talk with like-minded individuals. But education and information is important too, especially when I can see how what I've read is put into practice in people's lives. I guess most of the poll choices fit well. But my true reason for being here incorporates them and transcends them. I enjoy being part of a community of people who understand me.

Being a TS in this world can be very lonely and very frightening at times and it helps to know that there are actually others out there that are of a like mind.

For Support and to give support whenever and whereever possible.  :D
