So I just started a fundraiser for Medical aid for Palestinians. Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) works for the health and dignity of Palestinians living under occupation and as refugees. MAP delivers health and medical care to those worst affected by conflict, occupation and displacement.

We’re seeking submissions of Young Adult stories with asexual/aromantic main characters! We’re looking for main characters ages 14-18 who experience positive character growth though the story.

Please see the information in the poster above or check our our submission guidelines.

See a more complete list of what we’re looking for at the original post. And please, give us feedback if there’s something you’d like to see that we’ve left out.

I will boost this as much as possible. Seeing ace stories when I was younger would have made a world of difference, and even now that I’m older and know what I identify as, there still aren’t enough stories about people like me. Kudos to HIP for being so proactive about the representation available through their publishing house.

Important News!

awkwardandrobot:

Hello delightful followers:

I have great news— I’m going to India next Thursday, and I will be there for the next year! I’m going to be working at a university there as a teaching assistant and a research assistant. This is the opportunity of a lifetime for me— I get to be part of the founding of a liberal arts university abroad. Specifically, I will get to do what is my passion: work to help LGBTQ students grow, learn, and succeed in a college setting. 

Unfortunately, some of my travel plans were very last minute, and as a result I find myself short on funds. 

As part of my transition, I take shots of testosterone. On my therapist and doctor’s suggestion, I have been prescribed a year’s worth of T to take with me, so that I don’t have to worry about finding consistent trans*friendly care in India (due to location and accessibility, it will be hard for me to find an understanding doctor that I can see regularly!). 

But because I am leaving earlier than expected, I will not be getting my paycheck from my current job until I am in India already. This means I do not have the 100+ USD to fill my testosterone prescription (I have to get it at a local pharmacy instead of my compounding pharmacy because shipping will take too long otherwise) before I leave. 

I don’t usually do this, but I’m asking for help. 

If you can donate any amount to help me get this necessary medication before my journey, I would very much appreciate it. I need to reach $100 before next Wednesday. I’ve attached a donate button to my personal blog page.

I will send you a  personalized thank-you poem in response! You can send me requests in my ask box, or I will freestyle it (you may get a ridiculous limerick, kinky haiku, or an ode to your blog).

Because of the urgent nature of this request, I will be reblogging this post every evening. If you would like to block it from your feed, please filter out #gettingGabetoIndia

Guys please get this out there. I don’t know if anyone’s posted about this yet, but DO NOT try and make those diy crystals!

The thing is, a lot of the people on this website are kids, 13 and 14, and depending on the science education in their region, they may very well have no idea what’s going on here. 

Once you start doing your own housework, you learn real fucking fast not to put ammonia and bleach within ten feet of eachother, and if you’re lucky you’ll hear that bit of trivia before you end up getting your entire dorm floor evacuated, as happened at my college about twice a year. 

But for a kid who may very well still be in middle school and barely have any idea what these chemicals are beyond “for cleaning” and “don’t drink them,” this is a really insidious thing. Particularly if they are aware that you can grow your own crystals with salt or sugar, because they will see salt in the recipe and that little lightbulb will go off like ‘oh yeah, I think I heard about that.’

Look what I found!
Incase you’re confused on what this means, it basically means that they are planning to create images that we would usually post and hide files that can essentially take down our blogs.
THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT.
Be careful about what file’s you’re downloading. Otherwise, you could loose your blog.
IF YOU SEE THIS, REBLOG IT! THIS IS IMPORTANT!

GUYS THIS IS IMPORTANT I NEED YOU TO SPREAD THIS LIKE WILDFIRE. THESE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO MESS WITH YOUR POSTS AND MAKE THEM TRIGGERING PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SPREAD THIS IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. HOVER OVER THE LINK AND CHECK IN YOUR LOWER LEFT HAND CORNER OF YOUR BROWSER TO MAKE SURE ITS A GOOD WEBSITE.

Okay followers, if none have ever interacted with me, please just reblog this. I don’t want people to be triggered by things like this

THEY MIGHT CHANGE LINKS TO SCREAMERS, WHICH NOT ONLY CAN CAUSE ANXIETY AND BE TRIGGERING, BUT CAN CAUSE SEIZURES. PEOPLE REALLY CAN DIE, VERY EASILY, FROM HAVING CERTAIN KINDS OF SEIZURES. so even if you just dont want to get involved with all of this stuff (which is understandable), please please PLEASE reblog this so people dont fall for the trap and DIE.

This is just getting crazier by the day. Stay safe followers.

Yo, this is more than just disgusting, it’s illegal. It’s against the law to alter and distribute personal pictures without their permission; and it’s especially against the fucking law to create false porn with it. That’s slander, defamation, libel; whatever you want to call it. Not only that, but to release their private information? They should be going to jail for this

And they can, if the pictures they take are of minors. And you know that some of them will be; people as young as 13 use this website. You don’t have to be much smarter than a 4channer to understand that making porn of an underage person is bad fucking news.

Here’s what you can do:

Leave a tip about this to the fbi. Provide screencaps like this one as evidence. You have to put in your personal info, but it’s no more than having to fill out a survey. It’s worth it; and they already have that info anyway.

Report it to inhope.

Report it to the Internet Crime Complaint Center.

Illegal content report hotline.

Some resources for people who’s pictures have been taken/photoshopped, or people who have been doxxed.

How to remove libelous information online.

Info on the Defamation Removal Law.

Legal guide to defamation.

Some more info on your rights.

Legal resources.

Please remember to also strongly encourage tumblr itself to take swift actions against this. Their users are in danger; they owe it to us to protect us. Contact them at staff@tumblr.com or abuse@tumblr.com and tell them what is happening, asap.

Please, spread this around, and ask your followers to do the same. If you have sideblogs, put this there, too. Feel free to also make similar posts to this one and put them in as many tags as possible. eople need to know what they can do to protect themselves.

Hey so I’m Z, I’m a disabled queer and trans Black person and I’m unemployed at the moment. I recently lost my Social Security Card and Passport, which on top of being terrified of identity theft, I’m scared even if I find a job, I don’t have proof of citizenship at hand anymore. Which means I won’t be able to get a job.

I have less than $2 in the bank right now and It’s gonna run me about 200 dollars, to order birth certificate copies, get a replacement card and replacement passport. Since I’m an adult, neither of my parents are going to help me fix my mistake.

If you could donate or signal boost I’d be super grateful. Thanks.
