This morning in my LiveJournal inbox was the following private message from w6chamap
I saw your posts on Feministe - may i talk with you?
Of course, the first thing I did was check the journal - empty and a few months old - info - empty and icons - empty except for a webcam pic of what appears to be a young woman with long hair. This raised my suspicions but I responded anyway because courtesy is free.
He said he were a 15 year old boy with Androgen Insensivity Syndrome
who was being bullyed at school because he looked like a 'hot girl with huge breasts'. More than once he told me I could ask questions if I wished because it might help him vent. I don't know anything at all about intersex conditions, but my half hour on Wikipedia failed to match any of his professed symptoms with the majoy phenotypes of AIS.
Suspicious as I was, I couldn't figure out what, if a malicious troll, he would want. However, asking Twitter and then Google led me to this post on Dreamwidth
, implying that he's done this before and would continue. So I cut the conversation short, suggested again that he talk to his school counsellor, and haven't heard from him since.
I stilldont' know what he wanted other than time and attention, and I suppose I gave him that. Still. there you have it.
