AMA: Nonmonogamy Edition!
Is the Big Trash Woman Sad to Share a Male with the Smaller Asian One? And Other Burning Questions from My YouTube Comments
I’m SO sorry it’s been a few weeks since my last Butt News1! I am hard at work on the next installment (Interview with the Vampire! wow wtf!), but unfortunately last week the internet rose up and chicken-fried my brain, so I am behind.
In case you missed it, my husband Ahamefule and my partner Roya and I did an interview with a platform called StyleLikeU in which we talked about our relationship(s) while sitting on wooden stools in our underwear for four hours. Then it was edited down into a 28-minute cut and posted on Instagram and YouTube, whereupon internet body language doctors went full Zapruder Film and deduced that I am being brainwashed and held prisoner by an abusive narcissist and a tiny witch, both of whom are repulsed by my body and yet inexplicably keep me chained to them using NXIVM-style mind control. Exactly the kind of uplifting coming-out experience I always dreamed of!
Anyways, I got a little spicy in the comments because there truly is nothing more infuriating than making yourself generously vulnerable and then being willfully misinterpreted and subjected to the wild projections of strangers. “Wow I feel really sorry for this pathetic brainwashed fat pig! She deserves the best!” It’s not like we even got paid for this, man!
But I actually don’t think there’s anything wrong with curiosity, so in a ONE-TIME-ONLY OFFER I will be answering questions about my love life/marriage/relationships in the comments on this post! Anything disrespectful will be deleted, but I’m happy to talk about whatever you want as long as you’re nice!
I can’t embed it but the video is here (and there’s an hour-long cut paywalled on the StyleLikeU Patreon, which I actually haven’t seen). I’m really proud of this interview and really in love with Aham and Roya and I hope you’ll watch! I’ll be answering questions in comments all weekend.
Oh, also, I should say that I also got hundreds of really sweet, supportive DMs and e-mails about this, and some of you were really fighting the good fight in the comments, and I’m so so so so so grateful to everyone who reached out and said kind things, and I know the angry, intrusive weirdos are a minority. But it’s also clear that PEOPLE HAVE BIG FEELINGS about this, so let’s talk!
Just for general future reference, I know Butt News probably seems like goofy fartposting, but I actually work REALLY HARD ON THEM, lol, seriously, and they’re each like 6,000 words long, which is a tenth of a book, and I slightly burned myself out trying to do one per week. SO, after a small winter break, I am adjusting my schedule and aiming to do one every OTHER week. Plus some bonus content (like this) during the off weeks. Hope you like that plan, because it’s the plan! I love you all so much! <3 <3 <3
