I have no idea what I'm doing, here or anywhere else for that matter! Joined in support of SWers and the IG boycott. If you're anxious, fat or queer, we've already got something in common.

A proper ...

I'm 28, Canadian, fat, white and newly identifying as queer/bi. I spend a lot of time pondering this messy existence. Some of my interests include:










I'm still figuring out how to be who I could have been before I was told who I "should" be. If that resonates, let's chat!

technically bisexual but too advanced sad mentally ill queer for cis men

Let's make a thread of texts to radicalize the anarcho-curious in our lives. Please reply to this post with books, zines, articles, or videos. Bonus points for direct links and texts with accessible language.

Uspol, Canada, white supremacy 

Yeah so like a fair amount of Canadian leftists still maintain the view that Canada is isolated from US events and that it never "gets that bad here" with some false nationalist settler superiority complex and its a dangerous, short-sighted, microsocial view.

Rallies yesterday in support of US capitol events occurred in Calgary, Vancouver, and Toronto.

My partner has had CBS on all afternoon and I really don’t feel the need as a Canadian to watch that trauma porn and put my body into stress response over the natural culmination of 400 years of white supremacy which white north americans refuse to acknowledge.

I have no control over us politics even more than I have no control over canadian ones. I should retreat to the weighted blanket until I stop rage shaking.

Mastodon I feel like kind if drifted out for me, but I did meet one of my new best friends on here (@kurious) so that’s pretty fuckin sick 🥰

you can't be a leftist if you don't recognize fatphobia as a legitimate oppression.

casual reminder that I will be blocking anyone and everyone talking about weight and dieting this season.

CW your "new year resolutions" and all associated nonsense. or, you know, just don't even go there.

I can't talk right now, I'm doin' hot girl shit*.

*Putting on makeup for literally no reason, taking photos in the corner of the bathroom, and then drinking beer on the couch hoping for compliments*

CW: eye contact

Kinda sorta want to get dolled up and post hawtpics on the internet; kinda sorta want to grow roots into the couch and stare at the ceiling. Decisions decisions.

Be aware, the powers that be do not like #MutualAid.

They know that if we revert back to supporting each other within our communities, the way humans did most of our existence...

They lose power.

Mutual aid is revolutionary.

Uncomfortable truth 

There is no reason to expect the year 2021 to be substantially better than 2020.

It'll probably be different, but that is not the same as better.

What I learned in 2020:
Compulsory heterosexuality is a VERY effective form of gaslighting.

The best podcast about advice that is not an advice show, “We’ll Take This One” just passed 5 episodes!

If you’re hesitant to listen to a mastodon-adjacent podcast:
-It is professionally recorded with real microphones and edited in a real dad’s basement studio
-It has an original theme song
-We’ve never mentioned mastodon once and never will
-Episodes are 45 minutes, max
-it has a perfect 5 star rating on iTunes

Search “We’ll Take This One” in your podcast app of choice! It’s also funny. #wtto

Boosts really appreciated

Does anyone know of a good plus sized clothing store online? I have a friend who's really struggling to find stuff they like that fits.

I've been spending a lot of solo time with my kiddo. It's great, he's a delight. I've also never been so excited to drive quietly to the office :blobcatblep:

'SOCIETY: $2000 is the minimum we need to live each month

DISABLED PEOPLE: So you agree disability should be raised to $2000

SOCIETY: Disabled people are magical & can live off less

DISABLED PEOPLE: No, we can't

SOCIETY: [avoiding eye contact]
Disabled people are so inspiring'
