DMAB TRANS FOLK WHO NEED CLOTHES

scarcelyravenouswantonworship:

I just realized that I can be using my Employee Discount Powers for good! I work at a thrift store and can get all sorts of cool clothes super cheap half off on top of the thrifty prices. For example, I can get shirts for as little as two to four bucks a piece, pants for like three to five bucks a piece, skirts for like three to five bucks, dresses for like four to ten bucks, (buck buck buck lol so many bucks I’m a chicken now) etc. 

If you live in Canada or America and need some cheap (if you can afford it and would like to) or free (if you can’t afford it or think you deserve presents than that’s totally cool too I mean seriously dmab trans folks all deserve presents every day) clothes, you can send me a message and we can talk sizes and style and stuff. I’m living on a bit of a budget right now but would be totally happy to spend like fifty bucks or maybe more a month on helping you look and feel like you can and should!

Before I get more into what my store has, I should mention that our selection of plus-size stuff tends to be pretty spotty. I’ve tried a few times to get our management to do more to bring in and shelve plus sized clothing, and will continue to advocate for it, but I’m pretty sure they’re not listening. That being said, if you need it, I swear by my rabbits that I will go to all five stores in my city to find good clothes that fit you and make you feel rad. My partner has experience with shopping for plus sized clothes (and REALLY great fashion sense) and they have kindly offered to come with me and give me a hand with the shopping, so hopefully we should be able to get a really good fit for you! 

My store carries all kinds of clothes: scarves (including winter scarves and beautiful scarves for head wrapping)  blouses (short/long sleeve), knits (short sleeve like T-shirts and long sleeve), sleeveless tops, pullovers, cardigans, hoodies, yoga pants, sweats, shorts, capris, casual/more formal pants, jeans, skirts, summer dresses and sleeve-having dresses, blazers, vests, pant/dress suits, spring jackets, winter jackets, leather/fur coats, rain jackets, PJs, nightgowns, underwear, socks, shoes/boots/sandals, jewelry, purses, etc.

Basically I want to do this because I know how tough - and unaffordable - it can be to shop for the clothes that you might need.  You might get judgement from employees, friends who are along with, family who monitor purchases, or whatever. 

In case it wasn’t clear this applies for ALL dmab trans folk, nonbinary people included. Also, if you live outside of Canada or America, maybe try me anyway and if it is within my budget we can work out shipping.

Even if you don’t need the thing please consider signal boosting!

EDIT actually hey dfab folks you can feel free to message me too. I’m giving top priority on the free clothes to dmab folks but we can work something out you’ll still get one hell of a deal.

Imagine you’re in a cafe and someone asks you whether you want a coffee. In English, the conversation might go like this:

"Do you want a coffee?"
“Thank you.”

And a few minutes later you’d have a coffee in front of you. But if you said this is French, the result would be very different:

"Voulez-vous un café?"
“Merci.”

No coffee would arrive. Because ‘merci’ on its own like that means “thanks but no thanks”. You’re refusing. If you want to say “yes”, you would have to say “yes” (“oui”) or “please” (“s’il vous plaît”) or “yes thanks” (“oui merci”) or the like.

So wait, there are people who will respond to a question with a thank-you without any clarification? Shit, I’d be standing there waiting for them to actually say “yes” or “no”. (via audscratprophetlilith)

My mother thought I was being hilariously weird and she didn’t quite understand why I spent 3 hours on Easter biscuits, but I am far too proud of them than I should be.

being vegan is so emotionally draining like i can’t even look at someone drinking a milkshake without wanting to cry this is ridiculous if your ‘food’ makes me emotionally distressed that might be a sign that it’s not good
