girl scouts are letting in trans* girls and letting girls replace God with whatever they want in the pledge, also they use cookie income to support abortion and LGBT agendas
boy scouts are just now allowing gays in, officially in january, but gay leaders are still banned and they’re talking about segregation on camping trips, with gays and straights in different tents. also they still ban atheists,
Tumblr friends. You all saved my life. Unfortunately I need help one last time to keep it that way.
You raised $3,000 for my major brain surgery in October. Well, the bill is $9,600- Medicaid covered the hospital, NOT the doctor(!!). due to financial hardship, it’s reduced to $4,500.
The problem: the doctor HAS TO adjust and monitor my new neuro implant every other week, and I WILL DIE WITHOUT THE ADJUSTMENTS. But he is NOT ALLOWED to see me more than once more unless this is paid.
The reduction has conditions: I must pay $1,000by Dec 16, the$3,500 balance by Dec 23.
This is a terrible blow to me, I can’t stop crying in sheer frustration.
So, sadly, I must ask for help one least time (I can get on Free Care in April). You’ve all already been so generous. The SPNFamily, and Tumblr at large has been amazing. And if there were any way to avoid asking, I would.
PLEASE DONATE IF YOU CAN! I’ve set up a PayPal with the email firstname.lastname@example.org to accept funds (if you “send to a friend” there’s no fee). The hospital can only accept payment from me.
I know the Holidays are already an expensive time. Maybe give someone the gift of saving a life in their name? And I know I recently got so much help from you all. If I had any way to avoid this I would. And of course I’m happy to repay with fics, songs, editing, or anything I can.
As it is I’m also homeless and sometimes staying with my violent abusive parents, other times staying with friends. Every cent I get is going to other medical expenses and necessities.
PLEASE SHARE THIS as far and wide as you can! Whether or not you can give, others may be able to.
Thank you all so so much. Below are some photos just to show what I mean. They called me with the settlement, but the original bill is there, as well as a few of my scars.
Thank you again! PLEASE DONATE AND SHARE IF YOU CAN, and ask me any questions.
Sopranish is my friend, and I’ve personally witnessed the reality of her struggles, so I can vouch for both the urgency and the legitimacy of this plea for help. She is on a time crunch and really scared, so any shares or donations would be so,
“Many trans girls, including me, have a habit of romanticizing the cisgender experience. A month or two into my transition, I told my girlfriend that I couldn’t wait until I could look in the mirror and see a pretty girl staring back at me. “You realize that’s never going to happen, right?” was her response. “You’re going to look at your reflection and feel unsatisfied — just like every other woman.” And it’s true: Even the most gorgeous of my friends can list a dozen things she’d change about her appearance. So the next time you’re feeling unattractive, don’t blame yourself; blame capitalism and a beauty culture designed to make you feel that way.”—Annika Penelope, 10 Things I Wish I’d Known When I Started My Transition (via plaidypuss)
Trying to focus on the positives in the current moment, like how beautiful it is outside or how your hair is just on point today, is really hard when the most important thing you can think of in your life at the current moment is how difficult it is to keep yourself from crying in public even though you just can’t take it anymore right now.
I think people a lot of the time just try to be funny and lighthearted and think by poking fun at me that I’ll just laugh it off and be ok but a lot of the time it just really hurts instead but I can’t say anything or act like it affects me as much as it does because god forbid I come across as oversensitive but I guess maybe that’s just what I’ve always been but I feel like the least people could do is not make me feel even more guilty about it idk
I’m not really sure what to say when people tell me I’m being dramatic or a drama queen or whatever.
Like, sorry that “drama” is essentially a facet of human existence and exists everywhere and is unavoidable for everyone? Sorry for using my free will to express myself verbally because that’s how I personally work through things that occur in my own life? Sorry I failed to entertain you and instead made you feel unhappy for like two seconds even though what I was discussing has no bearing on you or your life?
Like, why am I apologizing to you? I just said last night I was sick of it and wasn’t gonna do it anymore.
I guess we should be real here and admit that being sorry for everything is all I really know how to do. But whatever go ahead and keep calling me a drama queen just because I’m not as strong as you pretend to be.
i told my mother i wanted a pink $20 sweater for xmas this year and she said she refuses to buy me "girl clothes" and that she won't ask my family to get it for me because it'll apparently make them feel uncomfortable.
