for anyone who doesn’t know:
i am transsexual. obviously, female-to-male. i have been on testosterone since 03/22/2012, and living as male full-time since i was 15.
now that that’s out of the way, i would like to reach out to everyone and anyone i can. due to improper binding for several years, i have developed costochondritis. it is a painful condition, and regardless of my dysphoria, top surgery is a necessity because of this.
i have found a local surgeon who will work with me at an all-inclusive price of $6790. this seems impossible as i’m dealing with traffic court fees and still looking for a job. i can’t do it without help. i need the surgery asap to prevent from further damaging my body, so i’m trying to raise money to pay for it.
i set up a gofundme.com page, but i also have an etsy where deseree and i sell what we make. i would prefer to sell things instead of get donations because at least then i can feel like i gave something back. i’ll post the links at the end of this novel lol.
if anyone could share this or help out, or knows someone who could, please pass this along. it would mean the world to me.
If some dude can raise a shit ton of money for fucking potato salad, we can get this guy a surgery he actually needs.
signal boosting the shit out of this because he really deserves the surgery
if yall can raise 17k for a shitty tumblr con then im sure as hell we can help him out. signal boost this out to the world
extreme signal boost
I have two moods
One is highly sophisticated intellectual who goes into complex thoughts and is always moody and deep
the other is an immature 5 year old that doesn’t know how to control herself or her language or her actions
there is no inbetween
Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.
And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.It’s great that he’s addressed this but are we really supposed to believe that NO ONE during the extremely lengthy processes of writing a song, recording it, mastering it and animating the music video wouldn’t have brought it up?
Excuse me but how the hell is spastic even remotely insulting?
So I just recently learned that in the UK calling someone spastic means the same thing as calling someone retarded, only much worse.
If it makes people in the UK feel any better, people in the US literally do not know this (like literally no one I have ever met and/or know). Here being spastic is usually meant to mean something along the lines of acting like a hyper-active child (like running around in circles yelling just because they feel like it please be quiet for just 2 minutes type of child). NOBODY here uses it as a slur.
Since Weird Al is a US musician and the US music industry is pretty non-international, yeah actually I think its entirely possible that none of the people who worked on this song actually knew that spastic was considered an awful slur in some parts of the world.
And I’m like 99.9999% sure that Weird Al is genuinely very sorry that he was accidentally offensive.
Just a little sailor moon, for the sake of therapy. I could use another weekend :/
