My favorite bands include Marilyn Manson, Nightwish, and Emilie Autumn. I post and reblog what I like, and I occasionally just post about my life. That is all. DOB: 1991 Location: Missouri

So one of my best friends Amy has fallen on hard times. She’s been trying for months to secure a job and hasn’t been able to yet, though she’d really like to work. She owes rent and bills, and though I’ve been trying to provide for her as much as I can (groceries, paying when we go out to eat) and our other roommate has tried to pay for her half of bills, he also does not have the money to fund both of them. He owes a lot of rent, because he simply doesn’t make enough to pay everything and his parents promised to help him out but haven’t. And to be honest, our rental house was shit and the winter hit us hard. We couldn’t NOT have the heat on or the pipes froze (in the sometimes sub-zero [fahrenheit] temperatures), but the energy bill cost us $550 which we are currently trying to pay off (and if Nigel’s parents don’t help out like they said they were, I will end up footing the bill—and I’d REALLY prefer to not be $500 out).  So there’s a lot of bills for them to pay between the two of them, which Nigel simply can’t afford and Amy would love to pay for but hasn’t secured a job. They can’t get a loan because Amy doesn’t have proof of income, and Nigel has no credit. Amy’s parents can’t afford to help out.

I wouldn’t mind keeping on supporting her for groceries, but I cannot afford both of our rents and bills. Furthermore, I’m getting married in month and a half, and we’re both pretty fucking poor. While I’d like to help Amy and Nigel out, I unfortunately have to worry about my own poor ass this summer, especially since I don’t know where I’ll be after July (hopefully out of town, to be honest). 

Our lease is up at the end of May. I have a place with an extra bedroom they could hole up in if they needed to, though my first few months of marriage it would be nice not to have that. They can’t even afford a downpayment on a new lease for a new place to live.

So please, please consider helping, any amount helps. If you can’t, please share this to help spread the word.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

ealdra:

Hi, guys. I really didn’t want to have to do this, because I don’t like feeling like I’m burdening others, but I really could use your help.

As many of you know, I’ve had a really, really rough time lately. I had to quit my job (I was tired of dealing with an extremely ableist boss, and it was extremely bad for my depression), am having trouble finding new employment, and am now being told if I don’t re-enroll in the university by a certain date, I’ll be kicked out.

If you can check out my page, even if you can’t donate anything, I would really appreciate it.

If you can share it with people you know, I’d also really appreciate it. You’ll have my eternal gratitude and I’ll give you a million hugs. All the hugs.

Thank you so much.

Please please please help, or at least reblog.

So my best friend Amy is going through a rough time. I help as much as I can, but I’m getting married in 1.5 months (and we’re fairly poor), and so there isn’t much I can do. She and our other roommate Nigel (who works two jobs but doesn’t make much and owes like 5 months of rent, etc.) need to get an apartment, but cannot even pay a downpayment. I won’t even know where I’ll be after July. So PLEASE consider helping her, as I can’t do much in a couple of months.

pokemoneggs:

cis ppl can have horns and swirls and spikes n shit surgically implanted under their skin any time they want if theyre rich enough but a trans woman wants boobs she has to wait at least 1-2 years for doctors to be convinced that she REALLY wants them

I like and understand what this is trying to point out, but there are two issues:

1.) ANYBODY can get horns, swirls, etc. implanted (provided they can pay), not just cis people, and while I get that the point is to highlight the trans issue, it isn’t necessary to deem the horns and shit as only a cis thing—a trans person could also get those, most likely just as easily

2.) Breast surgery is done by a medical doctor, and potentially may be included on insurance?? Probably not, since it is probably considered plastic surgery, but I suppose there’s a chance.

Horns and shit? I could be wrong, but I thought those were more often done by piercers, or the like, rather than surgical doctors. 

They’re very different procedures. What would have been a better comparison is to see how long it takes for an average biological women to secure a boob job or breast reduction surgery versus a trans woman. 

Help to raise money for medication and medical bills

flewintotheice:

So… here’s the thing.

I have to be in court on May 28th for this custody hearing. I spoke to my lawyer and doctors today together. As long as I can get on my medication by May 7th at the latest, everything will have time to take effect before I go to court on the 28th. So… here’s the deal…

I’m going to make one more extension on this fundraiser for May 3rd. This will give any donations time to get to my bank account before I can pick up the medications on May 7th. Please help if you can. This is really important for me. I need to be on all of my medications before I go to court or I could potentially lose full custody of my son.

Currently, $210 has been raised. I still need to raise $990 by May 3rd. So please, keep reblogging this fundraiser and donate anything you can. At this rate, if every single one of my followers donated just $1, I would have everything that I need in order to get my medications. 

Basically, I just want to break it down a little:

990 people could each give $1

198 people could each give $5

99 people could each give $10

49 people could each give $20

That almost makes it sound even more doable than before. So please, help however you can and please know that it means a lot to me that you’ve helped.


Thank you for your continued help and support.

 

Anonymous said: The doctor will never be a woman. There are plenty of women in the show that are admirable role models. I think you're just full ofsh it. Stop pushing your american views onto Doctor Who, a BRITISH show, with BRITISH values. It's unbelievable how obnoxious and hypocritical feminists are, especially you third-wave feminists. Always spouting "equal rights" but, "Can't hit me, cause I'm a girl!" You probably won't respond to this because you know I'm right and the whovianfeminism stance is weak.

This was so beautiful that I had to put it up on my wall and examine it as if it were an exquisite piece of art.

"Manpain" by Anonymous

Above we have a quintessential example of early 21st Century prose by an aggrieved man. The author of this piece is unknown, but we can surmise by his inability to properly say “shit” to a woman and his assurance that he likes “admirable” female characters that he is most likely a “Nice Guy.”

The anonymous author employs deliberate obtuseness in order to provoke a reaction from his audience. Notice how he pretends no British individual supports the idea of a woman portraying the Doctor, despite clear evidence to the contrary, even amongst actors who have portrayed the titular character on the show. Then there is the stunning self-centeredness regarding his perception of third wave feminism; he is only interested in equality it grants him the “right” to hit the women whose arguments make him so incoherently angry that he is unable to rationally reply.

His final challenge attempts to trap the reader. Do we respond and grant him the audience and validation he so desperately seeks, or do we ignore him and let him believe he has won? But perhaps we have a third option: to turn the focus back on him and examine how his comments display his deep insecurity in his own sense of masculinity, something he feels can only be reclaimed by challenging a girl on the internet to a fight and preemptively declaring victory because he fears he cannot engage with her on an intellectual level.

a work of goddamn art oh my god
