Got a burning question for Fluffy Kitten Party? I’m at your service! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
I’m an advice column junkie. I have subscriptions to several publications to read advice columns. I love that shit. But you know what there isn’t much of? Advice columns for fat people. Advice for people trying to ditch diet culture and heal their relationship with food.
I’m not an expert. I’m just an internet writer who has been there. And I want to help. So, hit me up at email@example.com if you’ve got a question about:
- Dating while fat
- Managing family members, friends, or coworkers while trying to fight diet culture
- Intuitive eating
- Health at Every Size
- Body positivity
- Anxieties, fears, or issues related to any of the above
How it works
First off, you’ll be anonymous. I won’t publish your name, email address, or any personal information. But, it’s email, so I will have your email address, and therefore not totally anonymous. (Since, you know, I’ll have your email address.)
I’ll be posting on a monthly basis, depending on the number of questions that come in.
An obvious disclaimer
Like I said, I’m not an expert! I’m not a social worker, a dietitian, a psychologist, so if you contact me with questions that require the help of someone more qualified, or if you are in need of immediate, skilled help, I’ll do what I can to provide resources. But that’s about all I can do in those situations.
Why I’m starting this feature
It’s all well and good for me to sit around and write about my own experiences. (In fact, that’s kind of the focus of this blog.) But I’ve found some of the best and most fulfilling things I’ve written are pieces of advice. Interactions with others. Someone has a problem, and we work through it together. I’d like to start doing more that — helping, having a dialogue, and using it as a jumping off point to dig deep into issues we all face.
