Yes, some of us even like to eat! So often, when i see fat poz stuff, it’s focused on supposedly “healthy” (and supposedly “unhealthy”) ways to be fat, and separating out the “good” fatties from the “bad” ones based on that. i dont subscribe to that idea any more than i subscribe to an ideal that says there’s a “healthy” (and “unhealthy”) way to be trans. im trans and im fat. The degree to which either is “healthy” or not is none of anyone’s beeswax but my own, and is highly subjective. And honestly? i like to eat, even deep fried Mars bars! And thats ok.

things about new york

good

  • food (including vegan cream cheese in a not-hipster bagel place)
  • public transit that works, and which is not moderately soul-crushing to ride
  • big groups of brown & spanish-speaking people who were not desperately poor and terribly disenfranchised (which is something i have never ever been around outside of visiting the folks in my family who actually live in central america)
  • look at all those tall fucking buildings right up near the shore! weird!
  • barcade! it is a bar and an arcade you guys (we played crystal castles and paperboy and sat near some cute old gay men with cute old doggies)

bad

  • woah northerners really are less polite
  • the above mostly manifested in crazyass trans and homophobia that people just straight-up would not have been bold enough to express in the south; this may or may not be the subject of a later post
  • that city is really fucking big and even with good public transit it was hard for me to grasp how long it takes to get from one part of it to another

will go again at some point, especially if i’m able to find any affordable hostels in the city that aren’t shitty about trans stuff

(bought some chocolate lentils at economy candy in nyc - they’re like awesome vegan dark chocolate m&m’s, and isn’t ‘chocolate lentils' basically like the most vegany possible name for a candy ever?)
