Ask Allie: Quiet Your Negative Self Talk

Dear Allie, I have this constant voice in my head telling me how awful I am. If I make one choice, the voice shrieks at me for being a total queen. If I make the other choice, it tells me I’m a fraud. There is no winning. I know the voice comes from my critical homophobic upbringing. I keep trying to ignore it, but it just keeps getting louder. I’m exhausted. Help.

Ask Allie: Faux Pas – Beware of Your own Biased Behavior

Dear Allie, Last month, an acquaintance posted something online about non-binary gender identity, and I made some unintentionally offensive comments. Since then I’ve learned more about gender identity and can see how hurtful my comments were. I sent a message to this woman apologizing, explaining the context of my ignorance, and expressing a hope that we can continue as friends. But she hasn’t responded at all. I feel like such a jerk. What can I do?

Ask Allie: Being Authentic With Your Family

When I came out, my highly religious uncle verbally attacked me. He called me names, made me feel horrible for my choices and told me I was an abomination and even drug up my past—saying that I’m not going to be any good—blaming my mistakes on liking females.Should I be patient and try to educate him? Or should I cut my losses and continue to live my life as I am?
