Some ideas to get you thinking about what you might want to do for the baby queer (baby trans/baby dyke/baby bi/baby gay) themed zine we’ll put together at Sunday (Oct 5th)’s brunch <3

1. do you have advice you’d want to give to your younger self?
2. write about coming out and dating a woman for the first time at age 40
3. that time you kissed your best friend in kindergarten and never talked about it until you were 20
4. the first time you came out. 
5. the 10th time you came out.
6. having crushes on girls in 7th grade and not knowing they were crushes because girls only had crushes on boys
7. the first time you found a label that fit you.
8. the fourth time you found a label that fit you. 
9. the first time you found pronouns that fit you.
10. illustrate the transformation of your aesthetic
11. the first time you kissed someone you were into and thought “WOW. so this is how it’s supposed to feel.”
12. how much you HATE the term “baby gay”
13. how it took you a while to find a queer community that felt like home
14. the things you google searched when you were closeted
15. feeling pressured to be more or less sexual than you wanted to be your freshman year of college
16. the first time you were betrayed by the racism in the queer and trans community
17. how the queer and trans community helped you work through your internalized misogyny
18. a thank you letter to the older queer and trans folks who mentored you
19. write about having a crush on your straight best friend in the style of a greek tragedy (because we know it was that painful)
20. the playlist that got you through your angsty teenage years
21. all the self-destructive ways you tried to make yourself straight or make yourself the gender you were assigned
22. Justifying your attraction to women by saying that women’s bodies are just more sexualized under patriarchy
23. Telling yourself you must be straight since you get off to Harry Potter slash fanfiction about Sirius and Remus (men!)
24. What kept you alive when you didn’t want to be
25. What your 16 year old self thought your life would be like at this point vs. what it actually is
26. Your feelings about the It Gets Better Project
27. Whether or not you approve of the way MTV’s Faking It portrays the confused teen queer experience
28. If you still have poems you wrote when you were a teenager, please put them in!!
29. The first time you were in a space where the majority of the people were trans like you
30. A love letter to your 17 year old self
And remember if you want to sign up for our mailing list you can do so here: http://eepurl.com/3bCA5

So I had fun putting these together. Feel free to add your own ideas even if you can’t come to the brunch in Philly!

The truth is that not all survivors are women, not all abusers are men, and not all abuse is physical. And it does harm to assume otherwise. Emotional abuse, financial abuse, sexual abuse, physical abuse — they all hurt. It also hurts to perpetuate the idea that domestic violence only involves fists. Part of why I stayed with my abusive girlfriend was because I thought domestic violence was a man hitting a woman. I didn’t recognize the signs because it didn’t even occur to me as a lesbian to watch for them.

Still hungry?

Absolutely!
The average active adult needs 2,000 calories per day in order to function in a safe and healthy manner. If I’m active to the point where I consistently run 1+ hour every day, then it is far more likely that my caloric needs are around 2,400-2,500.
Considering that, a meal of 1,200 calories would perfectly suit my needs. It would supply roughly half of my calorie requirements, which is a God-send since a fast food meal is relatively cheap. It’s a great value, especially if I don’t have much time to cook or have the resources to prepare my own meals!
The average burger is going to supply me with significant protein and carbs. That’s exactly what I’d need in order to build more muscle and have enough energy to make it through a workout. Even the sugar within the meal can be beneficial in supplying me with a boost of energy and can stop me from feeling hungry for a prolonged period of time. Not half bad.
Is this the most healthy meal known to man? Of course not. But it’s still a very reasonable deal and the calorie count is well within the average adult’s daily needs. 
Don’t let calories scare you! You need them. If you were capable of burning off an entire meal within the hour, you’d probably be dead by now.

1200 empty calories in a meal
next to no nutrition. all the calories are sugar and fat. that’s it. you’ll have no energy and have glucose spikes in your blood because the lack of fiber because of the lack of complex carbs. this is diabetes in a meal. 
so no, you should not be hungry for diabetes

Nutritionally, this BK meal contains roughly 28g of protein and 3g of dietary fiber. It potentially also includes 35% of our Vitamin C daily requirements, 2% Vitamin A, 12% calcium, and 27% iron. Of the 1,010 calories (that I could verify directly from the company’s nutritional information guide), only 410 are from fat. That isn’t a terribly significant amount of fat, in the long run, nor are the nutrients small enough to be viewed as negligible.
Eating this will not cause you to get diabetes. Eating this meal is perfectly fine if you do have diabetes, as long as you are able to adjust your insulin intake accordingly. So don’t use an illness as your debate point - Diabetic people are not a prop.

"So don’t use an illness as your debate point - Diabetic people are not a prop." I want that and variations of that on t shirts.

damn, man. Someone just got completely schooled by a nutritionist.

THIS A GOOD POST

also you&#8217;d have to be going really slowly or be really small to only burn 300 calories if you&#8217;re on a treadmill for an hour&#8230; like a 145 pound person doing 10 minute miles (pretty slow) would burn like 600.
