OK so as far as I can tell
Even though Laverne Cox held the #1 spot on the Time 100 reader poll
She’s not even on the list
Ask me how mad I am
If everyone who liked or reblogged that post donated $10 I could afford to schedule my orchiectomy or finish facial hair removal. Not everyone who responded to my writing is in a position to donate, I understand that. But after a thousand shares across my two loudest HELP messages I’ve raised just shy of $300 which means per share I raise about .33 At this rate I would need somewhere between 30,000 and 100,000 shares and that’s just not realistic for an angry crazy disabled trans lady blogger. It makes me wonder, how as a community can we ever meet these needs? Cause I know I’m far from the only one who needs help.

please stop saying cishet when you mean “people who just dont get it”
please stop saying straight cis men when you mean men
please stop using language that tells gay and trans men that they are the exception and cant possibly do anything wrong.

Pittsburgh’s Cutups (aka Geoff Maddock) has been involved appreciating, promoting and djing experimental and electronic music since the mid-90s - from DJing at WPTS and radio carson, running wrecked distro, part of the pbs and fuzz crews, to just booking lots of shows. Currently he runs the Lazercrunk night with Keebs focused on fun, forward-thinking dance music, and the periodic Illusions night with Tella and Vaneck that focuses on darker sounds and live acts. He like mineos, aeillos AND fioris.

blaeddelrunner said: I haven’t touched a turntable or a record in like eight years, and every time you post a track I wish I could order everything on your site in vinyl and relearn my beatmatching techniques.I post exclusively Pittsburgh artists many of whom are represented on this label. Purple and Pink Records releases are available at Beatport, ITunes, Bandcamp, Amazon, Juno and other digital retailers. I wish we could press vinyl But it is cost prohibitive. We do promo cds occasionally but don’t seem to sell much physical product at all.
Let’s talk about the ratio of successful surgery fundraisers for trans masculine vs trans feminine people. I personally have seen a handful of successful surgery fundraisers go thru but never even one for any amab person I am aware of. I had a donation post once and the small amount of money it generated was used to deny me medical assistance despite my making half the poverty line. Let’s talk about the fact that men get what they want, often at the expense of meeting women’s need for resources. Let’s talk about how hard it is to transition without resources. So many trans women have needs that aren’t being met. Split nothing up six ways we all get nothing. The ratio described above is impossible to resolve or an infinitesimal too small to register on a statistical basis. If you could afford surgery what would you have done? Its a cruel joke because as a broke disabled trans woman I will never be able to afford surgery. The advocacy and outreach and inquiries I have been doing out of hope have been completely fruitless. You won’t respond or reblog this because it affects you and it hurts too much, or because you benefit from this and don’t want to rock the boat.
