    Ok after some hard thinking about this one I

    think I see this in a few ways, if your talking about EP then you can either put yourself out there without fear or prejudice and let people know who you are depending on your level of self confidence and they can either accept you or not. or you can keep things to a basic level...

    I Wonder, But Honestly....

    Uncertain

    Often, I will want to just spill the beans

    about myself. Something about "purging," I guess. Sometimes, it is good. Many times, it is not. So, the question is: "How much is too much?" For example, everyone here now knows that I am transgender and have been known to present publicly as a woman from time to time. However...
