Congratulations! You are reading this, becouse you are shy, or you know someone shy and you want to help him. I really know what it means to have SAD, it took me guts to make first post here, hell yeah. You can find my first greeting post here:
http://www.socialanxietysupport.com/forum/f25/hi-finally-i-did-this-60128/
But this wonderfull community is just incredible, man, its just incredible! It's so supportive of each other, it was just pure therapy for me. I am gladly welcoming you to post your most intimate secrets, the things you most fear, and voalia!
What you get? Not anyone laughs... Wtf? It seems everybody perfectly understands what you are trying to say, and tries to calm you down, cheer you up... How can it be? It seems for me as everyone wants to hug you and virtually does it by words!
It doesnt mean anything how you look like nor how you are speaking in real live. You can be an elephant man (if you have seen the movie) or even vorse, and you can be perfectly confident, it is all right with you, we dont care what others say to you!
You think you are too old? Well, guess what... NOT! You are too old when you are dead, if you arent dead, then you are not too old to us. You are important to us, not them. The more shy you are, the more we want to hug you, support you, no matter how bad your life was. You want sex? You want children? ****ing yes, it is all right! You have the right to it!(Changed, is it better?) What is important, it is that you are sensitive, good person (yes, you are good person! I have noticed that shy people are the most understanding persons in life!), what the world now needs most! I am no kidding, just look around... Read some news... No more violence, no more wars or religious fundamentalists! No more children picking up other children! We want only peace and understanding! We want to love each other! It is evoliutinary geneticed in us. You know what i think? I think that shy people, yes, if you can call yourself shy then you are in this category, that we are the top of evolution... I would call it "**** Shyus". We are believers in science, in science evoliution! ****, if the rest of the world can't accept it, we could make our own new country! Trust me, the the majority of scientists would come to our country. If you are shy, it means you are smart, your brains are more evoliutionary advanced than others, becouse you are so sensitive about things, you remember everything what was bad to you and quetly want it to fix it.
I will make more arguments about it later, it will be continiued.
PS: I have SAD and i dont want to improve! I will change my signature.

Edit: As i am human and also make mistakes, i welcome everyone to give ideas and say whats wrong and how it can be fixed in the manifest. The manifest itself won't be ever deleted. It will be just improved, just like all scientists do. Also, there will be always one believer in it, it will be me...
Edit 2: Hell the pool now doesnt work as it should be, becouse if anyone agrees or disagrees, and after that the manfest will be updated, so the pool wont show correct information

No, I disagree with this. If you are shy it doesn't mean you are smart. You don't have to be smart or sensitive to by shy and vice versa.
And as for sex being a 'right', that's clearly untrue. A right to masturbation, sure. Not a right to sex.
Everybody has it in them to improve, and improve they should.

As i am student, most shy people i know are very smart. But mabie you are right...
Sorry, i am not a native english speaker. Can you describe in other words how you understand these:
Right in sex I understand it that sex is all right, there is nothing wrong with it. Nothing more and nothing less.
Everybody has it in them to improve, and improve they should. That i dont understand.

He said that sex in itself isn't a right, which it isn't (it's nothing to do with it being good or bad.

The last line means that everybody should improve how they are, and everyone is capable of it.

You want sex? [...] You will get it, it is your right!
By 'it is your right', you mean it's a 'social right', yes? Because it's not.
As for...

You said "I have SAD and I don't want to improve". But people with SAD should want to improve!

I wouldn't say shy people are any more intelligent or cultivated than extroverts are. I don't really want to feel I'm better than other people- just feel better about myself is fine.

I'm glad you accept yourself the way you are, and don''t want to change anything about yourself. It is always good to have a high self esteem; however, I do not believe there is anything nesessairly (sp?) better about being shy.

Shyness has ruined my life. I never truly feel comfortable around other people, I have no close friends, and I am really lonely. I think shyness is perfectly acceptable, as long as it is not causing you any problems in your life. If you are like me, however, and it is ruining your life, shyness is not a better way to live. It is also not better evolutionally in this case. I know plenty of outgoing, smart people (if the argument is that shyness makes you smarter).

Accept yourself- not your shyness (if the shyness is causing you problems in your life). If something is causing you problems in your life, change it.

umm no...

we're definitely not at the top of the evolution... because as humans evolved they were "improved" in such ways that would make their lives easier, lets get real SA makes us suffer and makes life more difficult. socializing is an essential skill that helps our societies survive and without it - we're screwed. i don't think it's healthy to view us as some different species more or less evolved, we are who we are and we are not all the same even though we all have anxiety. it's not healthy to view yourself as different, we still have lots of things in common with those who don't have SA. i still think we somehow learned to be this way, something went wrong in our childhood, or later on, but we can also learn to become the best we can be without all the anxiety, it just takes time and effort.
