No New Posts Gender Issues

This is a members only board which is used for non-judgemental discussions about ADHD and all gender related matters such as roles, expression, dysphoria, transition and any other matter.

PLEASE NOTE: This board was created as a separate board by request for those who have safety & privacy concerns. There is NO restriction on discussing gender, in a non-judgemental manner, on any of the other boards.

Everyone has the right to their own gender identity and no one should be pressured to fit in with other people's ideas.

No New Posts Personal Accounts/Diaries/Venting

This is a Members Only board which provides space for people to record their own personal experiences, in diary format, with ADHD in all its aspects and for also venting.

This board is intended to be a safe place so here's a couple of rules:

1. Do not name any specific individuals. If you forget and name someone, then we'll either x it out or delete the post as appropriate.
2. Do not interrupt someone's venting.
3. Any replies must be 100% supportive
