J talks about growing up in western Massachusetts where it’s known to be very gender diverse and accepting of LGBTIA folks. J recently moved to Kansas to a pretty progressive area where it’s much less understanding of they/them pronouns or even the concept of new pronouns. J discusses how they navigate this, from feeling like a burden by asking folks to correct their language to creating Misgendered Me cards. The pronoun packs that J and their partner created can assist with correcting people’s binary language, because there’s some danger in directly correcting people’s language.
J’s ONE COOL THING is a person named Shane, @plussizetransguy, an up and coming influencer and blogger that J met this year. Shane is breaking into the plus size fashion scene and is also just a lovely person. Jana’s ONE COOL THING is a workout class led by a woman named Steph Wilberding @swfitnessla. The class that Steph runs is completely fat positive and inclusive and Jana was introduced to the class via her friend Caroline Anderson, who you can watch be athletic @carolineand.
