my experience working with kroger so far when it comes to my gender has been very pleasant! It makes me very anxious to use my name and to be half out to them but i havent had a bad time. Im allowed to report people if they harrass me about my gender. Im allowed to use whatever restroom i ask for but i decided to stick with the womens bathroom bc im not a man anyway either. If i were to use the mens i would need a manager to come with me every time and that sounds like a hassle but honestly i would feel safer if it was that way and i can see why they would do that.
Another thing that ive found pleasant is that when i first got my name tag it was my birthname (because i needed that one for training elsewhere) but thats what i had for the first half of of my first day and during my break one of my supervisors remembered that they had the correct one done. So i was super nervous suddenly switching nametags after being introduced as something else but it was accepted instantly. My floral head (i work in the floral dept so theyre basically my boss) asked me nonchalantly if id rather be introduced as ben and i said yes so not only did they introduce me as that from then on, they reintroduced me to a lot of people and i havent had and invasive questions about it! Which is great because of my anxiety!
No ones asked for my pronouns or anything or even outright asked me if im trans or nonbinary but tbh im a little glad. I get very anxious talking about it. I dont mind the pronouns if its people im not close to. I think because people know at least that im not a woman it makes their vocabulary gender neutral bc theyre not sure if im a man. Whatever though~ its a pleasant experience. Im not sure if its because its a store policy or because im working with decent people or what but either way im glad 💛 -ben

Hello, I wanted to say the love children AU is pretty amazing. Also, don't take my request if it's unusual or inapropiate, but I would really like to see papa Yuuri. Greets.
hello!! thank you very much~ yesterday i was doodling older beka, so after seeing your message i thought, why not drawing all of them!!! and so i did
yuuri is pretty much the same, here in japan a lot of older men use long hair like idols… some of them are very hot, some of them are ridicolous……… but yuuri was already cute to begin with so no problems
once yuuri told victor that he really liked the longer hair he had when he was younger. bam, damage was done. he’s in a bit of a mid-life crisis now but at least he’s not getting bald like he was afraid of
yuri has long long hair but it will never admit why. beka loves passing his fingers through them so yuri likes them even more. he had them also when they had milo but had to cut them bc milo continued to pull them
beka is a gift from the gods and yuri loves that stubble so so so so much, he’s always nibbling and kissing his chin.
((man i’m not good at drawing older characters s forgive me if they just look barely different from their normal versions haha)
I’m seeing a lot of young transgender or non-binary people out there freaking out or going completely silent and removing all their info from their bios in light of the recent news in America. And I get that, I really, truly do.
But I also want you guys to know that it’s safe to come talk to me if you’re feeling pressured or scared or angry or whatever you’re feeling. If you’re comfortable with talking to me, go for it. :)
Secondly, if you’ve spoken to me about your gender for whatever reason, and are feeling scared about someone else finding out or you being being outed for any reason, please know that I will never reveal anything we have spoken about, anything you have sent to me or asked me about (as an anon or not) to anyone. What we discuss is private, and unless you give me permission to respond publicly or speak about it to others, it will stay between us. Always.
2017 would be a great year to acknowledge that there is a specific axis of oppression that subordinates people with female reproductive organs/female genitalia and any “feminism” that does not focus primarily on this fact is useless and will inevitably become yet another men’s rights movement
