Hi guys — there are a few entries I’d love to have on the blog but am in no way qualified to write. One is pretty straight-forward while the other is a bit more complicated:
1. How to properly take care of your nice clothes — what, exactly, should get hung up and what can be folded? What is the best way to handwash delicates? What are delicates, anyway?
2. On this entry about people’s sex lives being none of your business, I got a LOT of really important feedback from readers who are transgender about all the terrifically offensive things people say to them. I know that it is absolutely not anyone in a marginalized group’s job to educate the majority on how not to be a jerk, but I’m guessing that some (not all, obviously, but some) people’s rudeness is unintentional, and a product of ignorance. I think an entry on etiquette do’s and don’ts for cis people would be helpful for lots of people, myself included.
Originally, I was going to collect and post the individual responses and tips, but I didn’t feel comfortable publishing people’s words on something this important without getting permission. So if there is anyone out there who would feel comfortable writing about it, please shoot me an email at adulting101 at gmail dot com.
Update: I have gotten some wonderful responses and am now set on both entries. Thanks, everyone, and look for some enlightening posts quite soon.
