Being openly Trans is not always accepted, and sometimes can cause life changing injuries.
On 1/18/2014, I was attending a friends birthday party. I was dressed my best, having a wonderful time with a good friend and the birthday girl when all of a sudden Gangam Style started playing. We put down our hookah’s and headed for the dance floor to have some fun, just as it should be!
Rumors had been going around through the place that I was trans (FTM) and some people did not take too kindly to that. But, I thought nothing of it and made myself have a wonderful night.
Up until the end of the song. After busting a move and killing it on the dance floor, the last line of the song played and I was shoved hard into the dj booth and caused to loose my footing and land horribly wrong on my left leg. I had blacked out from the pain and was carried outside to see an ambulance in the parking lot.
I spent 7 hours in the ER having Xrays, shots of Morphine and my best friend by my side. I left to be told I had torn the ligaments and tendons in my leg. If you’re unaware of this injury, it can take months to heal. And I would know. 7 years ago it happened to my right leg so I have experienced this before as a child. The difference is, now I’m an adult.
And this injury caused me to lose my job as a server leaving me with no income nor any way to pay for my bills and months of Physical therapy that I will have to endure.
I’m opening donations and commissions to help pay for all of my bills because in America, nothing is cheap nor is it easy.
My paypal is theprinceisawake@Live.com and any donation will recieve a free drawing.
I also have set up a plan on Indiegogo!
Even if you can’t help, please reblog and show your support.
If you have Paypal this seriously takes you only three minutes maximum and you’d be helping someone pay off medical bills. :c
Why FCKH8 is NOT an Ally to the Queer Community
- That time they made fun of asexuality and diversity of the queer community in one fell swoop
- That time they became hypocrites about it to avoid being called acephobic (not to mention cissexist/ not trans* inclusive)
- That time they used misogyny to empower cis gay men, alienate lesbians, forget about bisexuality, and be cissexist about all forms of sexuality
- That time they stole ideas from queer charities to make a profit
- That time they stole ideas from bloggers to make a profit
- That time reviews show just how shitty they are at doing business anways
- That time they paralleled racial segregation to the gay rights movement because they are definitely the same thing
- That time they used stereotypes of Black women to render them into props
- That time they ignored gender neutral pronouns, cited religion as a reason for doing so, and harassed someone over it
- Basically all of the stuff folks are reporting on this tumblr I keep linking ya’ll to
They harass and disrespect people on their facebook page. They are actively cissexist, transphobic, asexual erasing, racist, sexist, and misogynist in order to sell shitty, overpriced t-shirts that they stole from charities.
So in other words, fuck fckh8.
(I understand that a lot of parodies of fckh8 have recently appeared on tumblr and other social network websites. As far as I am aware none of the links I have posted above are parodies, and are actually associated with fckh8.
If you notice any disparities, please let me know.)
friendly reminder that this is more reasons why you should not be a fan of fckh8 and the more i look at the tag the more bullshit by them appears
This a thing you ought to be aware of.
People, check your breathing privilege.
You guys… it’s November.

Neil Hilborn - “OCD” (Rustbelt 2013)
"She’d lay in bed and watch me turn the lights off and on, off and on… she’s close her eyes and imagine days and nights were passing in front of her."
Finally, finally, a high quality video of this poem.
Alright, so I have been doing this poem for almost three years, and this is the first time anyone has taken a good video of it.
"Hello. My name is Tinet. I’ve drawn since I could hold a pencil, and since I was little I’ve made up characters and stories to escape my messed up reality. At 15 I decided I wanted to learn to draw comics for real, and I started to draw “Driftwood". 16 years and 387 pages later, here I am, and here it is.
Driftwood is an epic anarcho-socialist adventure story about parallel universes inhabited by pirates, assassins, love-girls, cossacks, revolutionaries and shamans, and romantic harbour towns in foreign lands that may remind of Communist China and the Soviet Union.
It’s a love story. And it’s a story about being a second generation immigrant, working class and the child of an alcoholic.
Not least is it a story about growing up.
The life of 16 year old Willie is dominated by her dad’s alcoholism and the mystery with her mother, who was absent all of Willie’s life, but has now contacted her again out of the blue and wants to meet her.
Willie’s mum arranges a ferry trip for her to come visit her in Norway, but the ferry sinks in the North Sea. Willie is able to save herself on a life raft, and mysterious things start to happen … She finds herself in a different world, and is rescued by the crew of the sailing ship the Eagle Ray. They drag her along on their crazy adventures, and in the process Willie starts to learn to deal with her problems at home and to dare to choose her own way in her life.”
You can read Driftwood online here to see if you like it. (Though for the printed edition I’ve redone the lettering and translation of the earlier chapters.)
Driftwood is my pet project, but I think it may also be quite valuable for other people. I would have been so happy to discover a comic like this when I was younger (and certainly also now that I’m a bit older).
It’s a comic by and for girls, with complex and flawed female characters who deal with women’s problems. (It’s a bit sad that this is still a relatively unusual thing …) And other children of alcoholics have told me that it was a good comic to read, as it deals with these issues in a constructive way that you don’t see very often.
And of course, even if you can’t directly identify with those aspects, it’s an interesting story with plenty of drama, romance and stupid/dark humour! ”
Help this classy, sassy girl out! :) The very modest €25 for the album apparently includes shipping to anywhere in the world?! That’s amazing! The campaign closes the last day of July 2013.
This is my dog, Lily. My sister and I bought her, without my dads permission and brought her home as a puppy about a year ago. My dad hates her, but me & my 2 sisters love her to death. This dog helps me cope with my depression and shes always great company to my sisters and I. My dad describes her as “tolerable.” Today, after having this dog for over a year, my dad is saying she needs to go, while he is angry at us for bringing her home, she has become part of the family and we can’t get rid of her, it’s too painful. After begging my dad for a while, he was still stuck on getting rid of her. I mentioned tumblr as a final option, and surprisingly he agreed to it. If I can get 200,000 notes by the end of July, we can keep her. He thinks it’s impossible, but I have faith. I’ve seen tumblr do it before. Please guys help me, I love this dog more than myself. Please oh please :c
