Btw I wanted to thank you for this very well thought out and written post. I was reading through the discussion on here and your post has been helpful for bringing at least a couple hundred people together here to talk and find support for what’s going on in their heads. So again THANK YOU for sharing your experience!…
I don’t know if you are looking at replies on here anymore, but I just wanted to be another person to say I get what’s going on in your head. I’m 30 I was born male, despite my username, which is named after my female persona. Sometimes I feel male, sometimes I feel female, and sometimes I wish I was somewhere in…
You should read Symptoms of Being Human. It’s about a genderfluid teenager. And it’s so well-written that I’m almost finished and I have NO idea whether this person is biologically male or female—no one ever refers to him/her by pronouns. Ever.
I, too, am genderfluid. Biologically female. I’m usually agender/androgynous, but it ranges everywhere between male and female.
He made several errors throughout...something tells me that while being a journalist might be his dream, it isn't necessarily his calling. This narrative also failed to drum up the sympathy I think he was attempting to garner. There was a way to do it and stating that you are remaining willfully financially insolvent…
Nothing picky about it. The guy goes on and on about his writing dream but can’t look up spelling the name of his hero?
I’m thinking that Mr. ‘Creator of Cultural Content’ needs to get off his dead ass and swallow his pride and get a real job that pays. If you can put two words together, McDonald’s will make you a manager in 2 weeks. It sucks, but it pays the bills until you get back on your feet.

“Have you lost your mind?” Amy asked. “What do you even know about this man who would become her father?”
Prefacing this by saying that I’m a picky jerk but....
Since he always refers to her as his fantastic daughter, I’m going to say he has limited interaction with her in real life. Using superlatives and flowery language is supposed to make up for the distance.
“It would have been more lucrative to set up a shoeshine stand.”
mentioning this made me wonder how many *other* things that I would deem “a low level luxury/not necessity” he considers “necessary to have, before paying for child support” like you can buy weights and go on a run and he’s talking about job searching as a writer -anyway- (or so it seems) which is mostly done through…
So the first time you actually have a parent of color write a parenting article for jez and you choose a black man who won’t pay child support.
As a mom who landed in a shelter, this is an interesting perspective. However, he must know being a professional writer does not preclude him from applying for city jobs. You can still write for Time magazine while working for sanitation. You can still blog while working for the post office.
My mother worked as a secretary in the child support office during the early ‘90s. She had to unlist her phone number because we’d get calls at all hours from mothers and fathers complaining about child support. I find it very difficult to feel sorry for parents that aren’t providing their share for their child.
Before I saw the skin color of the writer, I was going to write a post about keeping your twigs n’ berries wrapped, but then the photo gave me pause. Would the comment be considered as racist based on the skin color of the writer? But I’ll try anyway.
Seriously, fuck this dude. I don’t give a fuuuuuccccckkkk how hard it is in your industry. Does that mean your kids won’t need to eat until you get your shit together?
You don’t need a gym membership to exercise.
Boo hoo cry me a river. My father worked two jobs he didn’t like, that didn’t pay much money, in order to be able to support his kids. FYI my mother worked also. I have a nephew that doesn’t support his two kids and seems happy to have other family members and the gov’t carry his weight. He can’t be bothered to work…
