I am posing a question that has been asked before because I am interested to know your thoughts about how we as a community could possibly attempt to make being */DL more socially acceptable or at least bring the */DL community to the awareness of society. Gay people have had a lot of success doing this, why can't we? My questions are: how do we go about raising the awareness of our community without doing harm? What are the risks involved? And are there people willing to take these risks? I can honestly say that I'd be willing to take risks if I weren't alone in the endeavor.
