' I am a tiny from Raglan, and I wanted to share my thoughts on this issue. I came to SL and was a “biggie” (what tines call regular human avatars) until I met some tines and fell in love with their lifestyle. For me, being tiny is being more authentic. It’s moving beyond what I want to look like, or used to look like in my glory days (ie, many of the perfect human avatars are reflecting that for their real human at the keys). It’s choosing to move beyond the limits of gender, body shape, age, race, etc. by choosing instead to embrace an avatar that avoids all those limits. It’s about a community of tines that comes to SL to really connect, care about, uplift, each other while being fun and lighthearted as much as possible. Its about avoiding the drama and pitfalls of online sexual relationships and sexual objectification that SL has a lot of. It is about taking the time to enjoy the simpler, and goofier, things that we may overlook or be unable to do in real life. It’s about honoring that internal innocent child while also using our adult abilities to be creative and using our kindness and acceptance to really get to know the core being in those who make up our community. Being a tiny is an awesome opportunity and a gift I am so grateful to partake in. Welcome to Raglan Shire. *Riverdances*'
Not sure why 'tines' instead of 'tinies' (makes me think of a fork community) but the rest of it makes perfect sense.
