There are very few people who are going to look into the mirror and say, ‘That person I see is a savage monster;’ instead, they make up some construction that justifies what they do.

Wow, that should be “trans*gendered”. :\ That’s really problematic.
Trans girl needs friends!
Hi! Uhm, so maybe this is kind of stupid, and kind of silly but I’m a 17 yr old trans girl/agender DMAB person who lives in Northern Ireland and is really isolated from any sort of community with other trans DMAB people and I would love to talk to some and make friends with cool trans ladys like many of the ones I follow on tumblr!
So uhm hit me up I guess, for my skype and stuff so we can chat! :)
Slurs are not oppressive because they are offensive, they are oppressive because slurs by nature of being slurs draw upon certain power dynamics to remind their target of his/her/their vulnerability in a certain relation to power and as an extension of that, to threaten violence and exploitation of that vulnerability.
hey friendly reminder to trans men and afab non-binary/genderqueer people that yr ability to take up space and resources that are designated as specifically for women (and i’m thinking especially about space and resources for lesbians/dykes) is contingent on ideologies of bodiedness/biology and socialization which paint trans women—especially trans lesbians/dykes—as entitled male rapists
the reasons that u can call yrself a dyke/lez/lesbian and go to lesbian bars or exist in lesbian communities and feel safe and welcome are the same reasons that my sexuality, my body, and my existence are considered violently misogynistic (i’m a trans dyke btw if that wasn’t clear)
Hello, my name is Adele, or Kat, the latter is more of a nickname. I’m a 21 year old trans girl who also happens to be a type 1 diabetic without insurance. What is diabetes, you may ask? Diabetes is a disease that infects the pancreas that hinders/disables it from producing insulin, therefore, I have to dose before meals and before bedtime or else I could go into ketoacidosis, where the body experiences high a blood sugar for too long, and basic body functions begin to fail. I’ve been hospitalized twice for this since I was diagnosed at 15 years old, and prolonged exposure to high blood sugar can effect the body in many harmful ways, like the loss of hands or feet, kidneys shutting down, loss of vision, etc. In case you didn’t know, insulin is a very expensive, novolog, for example, is over $450 for a single vial, and lantus being around $400 a vial. I currently live with my mother and brother which helps some of the financial strain, as well as having insulin still left over, but it won’t last forever, and what I aim to accomplish with this is to save up enough money for me to be able to buy it when it does run out, so I’m starting this a little early. If anyone sees the Amazon gift card post, don’t reblog it, as I would prefer money being put into my bank account.
If you would like to donate to me to help me financially, you can donate to my PayPal, which I have a button which links you directly, or you can send it to email@example.com from PayPal itself. Even if you can only spare $1, it would help in the long to help me to afford my own insulin or to help me afford insurance which I have been denied help from the government already, and looking into private insurances.
Please! Even if you can’t afford it, reblog and signal boost, This is very important.
Jane needs help!
I’m freaking out a lot right now and really upset- Apparently 3 years ago I enrolled in being able to overdraft my bank account and that was a cool idea when I didn’t have money problems but it’s biting me in the ass right now and my bank isn’t helping.
Basically they didn’t notify me when I overdrew so I kept overdrawing while trying to move from my old apartment to this one so I incurred a bunch of fees and I literally have no money. I cannot pay it off and they do not care. They have already taken $702 before I could shut it down and I can eat some of that but I can’t eat the last $400 or so of fees.
I don’t know what to do but I can’t just leave, I have money tied up in this bank that I can’t access and I can’t just cut and run right now- I have to make it til September before I can fix this fucking mess- so please, if you have anything you can give me I would really appreciate it.
I know paypal donations take time but I can’t use my card anymore so I can’t incur more fees- I have 10 days from this post to avoid getting another $135 or so slapped on me so please.
If you’d prefer to get something in return you can support me on Patreon
I’ve asked for help before for my partners and I’ve always kicked money around when I’ve had it, I really don’t want to ask and I absolutely wouldn’t if I had any options at all but I’m really desperate.
Thank you for reading- and helping,
