Share Your Story!

Have you earned a badge recently? (Or re-earned one you’ve already got?)  Tell us what you were up against it and how you moved through it. Let’s create a collaborative, intersectional resource of creativity and resilience in the face of stigma!

If you intend to suggest a new badge, please read the disclaimer at the bottom of this page before submitting your form!

Hi! Only registered users can share stories. Please Log in or Register and then come back and tell us all about it!


Please note: What makes these badges appealing is that they’re largely universal ideas drawn from shared experiences. For this reason, many ideas will occur simultaneously to multiple users. I also have a long list of possible badges I’ve yet to create and your idea may well be on it. All copyright and ownership for any badges created will remain solely with Rad Fatty Merit Badges and suggesting an idea does not entitle any user to a share of any future profits or to attribution. PLEASE DO NOT SUGGEST A BADGE if you are uncomfortable with this.

If you do suggest a badge: Please note that all suggestions will not be approved. Each new badge requires the creation of new artwork and modifications to the website, so we’ll be doing this selectively and as we’re able. If we do not use your badge suggestion, we will place your story in the most appropriate existing badge category. If we do decide to create the badge you suggest then it will take a week or more for that work to be completed and for your story to be posted.
