There are a lot more older ‘kin (fiction and ‘other, not to mention multiples too) than people on this site realize. Most of us have stopped putting ourselves out there so much because when you get to be 30+, being open is more dangerous than when you’re a kid. Many of us have obligations and people we need to protect (jobs, kids, etc.). Being open can harm reputations, even get children taken away. It’s not safe to have beliefs/lives that fall outside the status quo.

So true! Keeping a clean reputation is important which is one big reason my kin blogs do not get related/linked to my other blogs!
