It’s no secret that trans women love pickles. It’s science you guys. Our hormones make it so we don’t absorb sodium as well as other people, at least I think that’s true. That’s what I tell my friends, anyway. But for some weird reason, a lot of people (Laura) don’t believe me when I tell them! But my friend Dr. Lizz Rubin will back me up on this, and she’s a doctor, a medical doctor. And I mean, my appetite will also back me up on this. I’ve eaten an entire jar of pickles in one sitting. But, that’s me, and honestly, probably most of the trans women you know. So, if you want to be a good friend to trans women, or if you are a trans woman, I’ve got a bunch of great pickle recipes for you.
I’m not talking about any fancy pickled okras or peppers or garlic or whatever, these are all just regular pickles. By regular pickles I mean pickled cucumbers, those are just regular pickles, right? When I think of pickles that’s what I think of. To be honest, I don’t know why that is though, like, we pickle a lot of things, so how did pickles become pickles? If anyone has this information, I’ll buy you a pickle the next time I see you in person and we’re at a place that sells pickles.
