okay i now have a donate button on my page!! (under important) this is to pay for a new passport, which i desperately need to be able to get a job, or a driver’s licence, as i currently have no form of id or proof of eligibility to work in the uk

i’m ftm so i can’t use my birth certificate, and need this new passport not only to have my correct name + gender, but also because my old one expired 2 years ago
this is going to cost me £72.50 which i really cannot afford on my own right now

i’m also shortly going to be opening up art commissions so that you don’t have to give and get nothing in return, but i’ll have to work out pricing and set something up

hi there followers. I’m sorry to ask this of you, but currently myself and bunny are in desperate need of funds.

while I’m looking for work and bunny continuously awaits for SSI/disability benefits, we are living dangerously below the poverty line in a small rural Washington state town.

about us: we are queer trans neurodivergent couple in western Washington. my name is dd, im an autistic dmab trans womyn artist living with my fiancee and pets Rodney (a pit bull baby) and two rats named Boris and Bela. many of my followers may know my fiancee bunny, but for those who don’t. bunny is an amazing and cute baby dfab trans person living with multiple mental and physical disabilities including complex ptsd, bpd, fibromyalgia, among other things. they don’t have a public tumblr because harassment and abuse they have received.

we are currently fundraising for foods,medications, bill payments, shelter costs, winter/fall appropriate clothing, and recently as last night need to get bunny new glasses.

if you could please donate through the Paypal link on my page or use my email dantondrobot@gmail.com to help us that would be great. if you’re unable to, we would sincerely appreciate a signal boost.

thank you and i hope you have a nice weekend
dd

thanks all who have supported us when we’ve really needed it.. <3  if people could signal boost the above post more, it would be greatly appreciated <3 <3 <3

Hello, My name is Ray. I live in a home with my partner, my younger sister, my mother, and my grandfather. I also live with my abusive father. The pain he inflicts on us can’t be seen. He abuses legal pharmeceuticals- Xanax, which my grandfather is supposed to take. He steals them from him. My mother has gone so far as to put the pills in her bra, and he skulks in the night to reach in and take them from her. He manipulates and emotionally abuses us by convincing us that we are the cause of his problem. He lies to us, and has betrayed our trust countless times. He refuses to seek counseling or rehab, and also refuses to leave. I am diagnosed with PTSD, depression, anxiety, and Borderline Personality Disorder, and 90% of it is due to his actions. My sister, at ten years old, is already self-harming and suicidal. My partner has suffered a similar situation, and it is taking a huge emotional toll on them and hurting our relationship. My mother is also mentally ill and physically disabled (she doesn’t get social security checks, though). None of us are able to get a job due to our medical conditions. What he does isn’t illegal. In fact, we’ve called the police on him many, many times to no avail. Our only option is to evict him. This GoFundMe page will cover fees for his stay at a hotel, as well as legal fees for the divorce and eviction. We are currently broke. My life, my sister’s life, my mother’s life, and my partner’s lives are all at stake. We’re all near the point of suicide and we need him out. NOW. Please help. Every dollar and reblog counts.

This is my partner, whom I’m living with. This man is currently in the hospital because of his overdose and we’re trying to find housing for him with the funds we have. Please, please donate!!!

Hey guys, this is still a thing. He was discharged early from his rehab program and we’re running out of options. Please, please signal boost!!

sometimes tumblr’s US-centric social justice makes me so fucking frustrated. Right now sweden’s third biggest party are literally neo-nazis and our elections couldn’t even get onto trending tags today, goddamit.

Okay, so the post is gaining notes and people are confused, so to explain what the hell is going on: 

image

Swedish elections held were on last Sunday, 14th September. We’ve had a right-leaning government the past eight years and after this there will be a change of power. The new party, Socialdemocrats (S) gained a total of 31% percent. The old party, Moderaterna (M) gained 21%. 

Sverigedemokraterna (SD) gained a total of 12.9%. Their policy is racist, Islamophobic, anti-immigration, anti-refugee, anti-diversity, anti-LGBT+, and anti-feminist. Basically, they tick every box on the douchebag lottery.

If you’re here to argue that they’re ~not actually~ Nazis: 1) Fuck you. 2) Fuck the horse the you rode in on. 3) I hope you get stepped on by a moose, you ignorant asswipe. 

  1.  they literally started as neo nazis. They have used a Neo-Nazi movement as campaign slogans,
  2. party members have assaulted immigrants with iron pipes (tw for racialised violence),
  3. worn Nazi symbols 
  4. supported and helped build Neo-Nazi group SvP.

There’s probably more, but I don’t have links on hand. 

They’ve been having rallies and demonstrations all over Sweden, and people have shown up just to turn their back on them and protest (this post explains it better). 

In the 2010 elections, SD were pretty much considered no better than neo-Nazis and only got 5.7% votes - it put them in 6th place and was just enough to get them into parliament. In the elections before that, they got about 2.9%. In the past four years, they’ve grown exponentially in Sweden.

They’ve also run extremely extensive PR campaigns, appealing to the youth, kicking out members “exposed” of being racist, (note: these members often end up in SvP) and picking up buzzwords from the Socialdemocrats’ ideology. 

29% of votes they gained this year were from swing voters who previously voted M,  and the biggest gain have been in the south, in small towns and the countryside:

This is not something that’s just going on in Sweden. Europe has seen an influx of extreme-right parties over the last decade or so, often thinly disguised as a party that puts ‘traditional values’ and ‘national interest’ first.

In Greece and Hungary they’ve already been in power. In Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Greece, Finland France and UK, extreme-right-wing parties have been voted into the EU. 

Because here’s the thing: we’ve forgotten what it looks like. We’ve gotten to the point where we’ve turned Nazism into a cartoonish lampoon of goose-stepping, uniforms and moral lessons that “we’ll never be like them~”, ignoring the fact nationalism is not as cut-and-dry two ends of an extreme but exists on a scale.

People have been apologising for SD’s actions for a while now because they’re not considered “extremist enough” to be neo-Nazis, because they don’t share the same beliefs, because they’ve “publicly denounced” SvP. 

But the same people still get hurt. Still SD has the institutional and systematic power and privilege to oppress, degrade and humiliate people of colour, which they already have done. Stop making excuses for them. Stop making leeways for right-wing-extremists because that is how they gain tract. 

Please spread this.

Last Sunday, 17 trans women were arrested in Bahau, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia were arrested at a local wedding simply for being trans. 16 of them were fined RM950 (296.55 USD) and sentenced to prison for 7 days. If they do not pay up the fine after 7 days they will be sentenced to prison for 6 months. One of the 17 was underage so she was let go, but she is now required to report to the Religious Department once a month for a year.
Justice for Sisters, a support and advocacy group for the rights of trans women in Malaysia, managed to secure a syariah-court lawyer to held these women appeal their sentences. The lawyer advised them to prepare RM1,500 (468.24 USD) per person as it is apparently a common practice for the court to ask for more money from detainees who appeal their sentences.
As their Malaysian ICs all say “male”, if imprisoned, they will be sent to men’s prison and treated as male prisoners - including shaved heads and lack of access to hormones.
Justice for Sisters is currently fundraising RM24,000 (7491.81 USD) and needs the money immediately. They are accepting PayPal donations at pp.justiceforsisters@gmail.com . (I created the PayPal link - if that doesn’t work just manually put in pp.justiceforsisters@gmail.com in the PayPal Send To address. Note the “PP.”!)
For more information, email them at justiceforsisters@gmail.com (note the lack of “pp.”).
Context: Trans women in Malaysia recently filed a groundbreaking court case asserting their civil rights.
From I AM YOU: Be A Trans Ally, a Malaysian social media campaign for trans* people and their supporters. Please pass the word!
EDIT: The first version of this had a typo - the original fine is actually RM950 not RM960 as I had written. The converted amount in USD is correct.

Please donate if you can

I have Keratoconus which is a genetic condition that causes the cornea to turn cone shaped. It makes it hard to see, because bright lights form halo effects, obscuring the vision, and making it difficult to read, and in my case, draw. The day before my birthday, I went to a specialist, who gave me three options; Cross linking eye surgery, (which is still considered experimental in the United States, and not covered by insurance) Intact lenses (also not covered by insurance) or complete cornea transplants (Which is covered by insurance, but much riskier than the other two listed). 

Although there is some hope, since the Intacts is currently going through trial runs and studies for it to be approved by most insurances, I will learn by october, if I will be an acceptible participant for the study, and receive the intacts at either a reduced price, or not pay at all.

But, worse case scenerio, I will have to pay $5000-9000 per eye.

I cannot afford that, on my walmart salary. My family is barely skating by with what we have, and we still struggle every month to make ends meet. There is absolutely no way we would be able to pay for this surgery.

And, that really scares me. 

As an artist, and a writer, I depend so much on my eyes. Keratoconus is not curable, and will only worsten, if they go untreated. I NEED this surgery, but I can’t pay for it, with the few hundred bucks I get from putting up with walmart customers.

So, I turn to you, Tumblr. This is very hard for me to do, since I was raised to believe that if someone can work for their money, they very well should, and reserve the free help to the people who truly cannot help themselves. But, if you feel like you can, and want to donate, please feel free to send that money to my Paypal, at maryzolgarcia90@yahoo.com

If you want to help in another way, please spread my Commissioning Info or feel free to commission a piece of artwork from me directly by sending me an ask here, note me at my Dev.artor Email me your information at the same Email stated for my Paypal.

Simply re-blogging this really helps as well.

Thank you for taking your time for reading this out.
