My 5 year old nephew just paused before gendering me and used they/them pronouns.

His mom had a couple simple talks about what to call me and what not to call me. Since he used to call me Auntie J. Now its just J. He hasn’t had a hard time calling me J instead thus far.

And today he was on his four wheeler and rode up next to me and slowed down and said “can I call you dude?” And I said “sure! Thanks for asking.” And he said “mom J said I could call…🤔them…dude!!”

And then he drove off lmao

How sweet is that? I almost cried tbh.

thank you for helping me out in my time of need which feels like its been a really long time and i’ve gotten lots of help so im eternally grateful to you

A Thank You

I cant even express how happy I am to be in my own place right now. Ive moved in and Im getting settled. This is the nicest and most safe place I have ever lived.

Thank you to the people who donated to help me pay for first last and security.

Thank you to the strangers who had zero reason to invest in my well being.

Thank you to the people that know me irl, you beautiful friends of mine.

Thank you to the folks who bought me things from my wishlist to help get me started.

Im so blessed I don’t know what I did to deserve such kindness. Thank you for your kind hearts. You make this world a better place.

I feel like you struggle with paying rent a lot but your place seems REALLY nice... why not just get a cheaper place?

Oh. my stomach turns when I get an ask like this. I shouldnt have to explain myself. but at the same time I feel so much guilt around this and around asking for help, that I will.

Pretty much every one bedroom around here is somewhere between 7-800 not including utilities. mine is 950 and includes utilities. Yes its a lot and it sucks.

I work in social work at a nonprofit and make shit for pay. But i love my job and get to help youth who are struggling to have access to resources and plan a future. I dont have a partner to split my costs with like a lot of my coworkers. I have to pay for my car which i need for work, insurance, gas, phone, student loans, and food. I also have to pay for my own health insurance through work since I make more money than my parents do and they cant afford to have me on a family plan. Im at the bare minimum here i dont even pay for internet. i bum off of other people for a lot of things like that.

So yes I struggle often. Id prefer not to live with my toxic family. I chose a place that is quality and has many perks so I can feel safe and taken care of. They also cover snow removal which helps since my body cant handle shoveling my ass out during the awful new england winters. Im trying to balance prioritizing my mental health, physical wellbeing, career goals and passions, emotional safety, all while being practical. My mental health has increased exponentially since living alone.

Its absolutely fine if you dont want to donate to help me get by. But why ask me this? As if i havent already been trying my hardest to make it all work? I assure you Im doing the best that I can.

Anyway if anyone is able to help me with bills this month i would appreciate it so so much.

Imagine if you had to actually work. I used to follow you and Corissa both but you’re no longer relatable. It’s easy to be unapologetically fat and exist in a world you don’t have to actually work in. How can you be a “fat activist” and advocate for people that you can not relate too anymore? It’s just disappointing because your advice isn’t all that accessible anymore for us “normal” fat folks. I don’t mean this as a hate mail, but I think it’s a valid concern.

Im gonna do my best to be patient and understanding when responding to the many pieces you just said here.

1. It has been like 5 minutes (im exaggerating but in the grand scheme of things tbh it has been a very short time) since I last worked a 9-5 job. I dont have to “imagine.” I did it for many, many years as I grew up in poverty and it was required in order for me to get by.
2. You are SO right. It is much easier for Corissa and I to be unapologetically fat in a world we don’t have to work a traditional job in.
3. We DO however work “in this world.” As I said, its just not a traditional office/retail etc type job at this time.
4. Im going to be working a traditional job again very soon. Though thats not really any of your business.
5. I will gladly admit, I am SO much more privileged now than I was just 5 months ago. Still, we are not without hardship at times.
6. Please keep in mind…you do not know us just because you follow us. You see what we put out for the world to see. We choose what we show. As does everyone. Youll NEVER know our actual experience in a holistic way. And thats okay.
7. My goal here isnt to be relatable to EVERYONE. My goal with my work is to share resources and share parts of my life as a fat nonbinary person on the internet to aid in representation. Sometimes I share my opinions.
8. I never claimed to struggle like everyone else in all the same ways.
9. Tbh, I think its EXTRA important for people in positions of power, people with privilege, and allies to use their platforms to advocate for others. I think those kinds of activists are great to have. So like…even if I cant relate entirely while Im not working a traditional job at the moment, I think its pretty great that I want to continue doing this with my time.
10. Feel free to unfollow if this doesnt work for you. Im not for everyone. And thats okay with me!
