Hi there! My name is Sophia Thomas. I am a 22 year-old transgender woman currently living in Massachusetts. I have been transitioning socially for four years now, and medically for two and a half, and transition is what I’m here to talk about.
With my name finally changed, all that really remains for my transition is what many consider “the big end”: surgery. 
For many transgender people, genital surgery (or “bottom surgery”) is incredibly important, especially for transfeminine people such as myself. For one, having two sets of hormones in your body at the same time can actually be harmful to your health, and the remaining presence of the body’s genetic hormones can hinder the effectiveness of the new ones being added. 
For trans women in particular, surgery can mean the difference between surviving or getting killed during sexual assault. Far too often I hear stories of the horrible deaths given to transgender women after they were sexually assaulted. While this is, of course, no fault of the victim, I can’t wait for society to grow up. I want a fighting chance.
It can also help with passing—a trans woman who doesn’t pass 100% of the time may be immediately outed by the sight of a bulge in her pants, and this can often lead to the aforementioned sexual assault. While I don’t have too much difficulty passing, you can never be too cautious.Keep in mind that this isn’t exactly something I’ve wanted to do. I’m going to be graduating college soon, and hopefully I’ll be able to get a job that could pay for surgery, but in the off chance that doesn’t happen, I want to have a safety net. 
So, I’m asking for donations.
Bottom surgery for trans women is incredibly expensive, ranging on average from $15,000 to $30,000. Combine that with student loan debt, and you have some seriously daunting numbers. I’m asking because I still have a chance. I’m still young, but I was not able to get any sort of familial support, which can be essential for young trans people of all genders. I don’t want to wait until I’m 30.I don’t want to seem like I’m begging, and I’m not. If you aren’t able to donate, that’s completely fine. I understand that almost all of my friends are broke college and high school students like myself. So, at the very least, I just request that you signal boost, and even then, just knowing I have your support matters to me.
Also, if by some stroke of luck, I find a way to pay for my surgery be it through a job or other means, I will either donate the money earned to some LGBT charity group (any suggestions for a particular group would be more than welcome), or to funding the surgery of one of my friends. I’m a firm believer in giving back to the community.
And hey, I figure if a group of frat boys can put together a charity to pay for their transgender member’s top surgery, I should give it a shot. And if a group of three guys who like to talk over movies can raise three times their goal in a day and a half to riff Twilight, or a certain webcomic artist can raise two MILLION dollars to make a video game, I think raising $20,000 can be done.Thank you all for your time.-Sophia

goblinparty:

My mom said if this post gets 500,000 notes nothing will happen.

But if this petition gets 500,000 signatures we can get federal laws preventing rapists from suing for custody/visitation of their victim’s children.

You guys accomplished Operation Fluffy Chicken
How about putting in an effort to Operation We’re Finally Taking Rape Seriously?

this has 13,000+ notes and only less than 5,000 of the needed 100,000

come on guys get your butts in gear, especially if you’re an american citizen

it only takes like 2 seconds to make an account on petition.whitehouse.gov and i’ve already signed like 3 or 4 petitions as they showed up on my dash. yeah.

This is a summary of college only using two pictures; expensive as hell.

That’s my Sociology “book”. In fact what it is is a piece of paper with codes written on it to allow me to access an electronic version of a book. I was told by my professor that I could not buy any other paperback version, or use another code, so I was left with no option other than buying a piece of paper for over $200. Best part about all this is my professor wrote the books; there’s something hilariously sadistic about that. So I pretty much doled out $200 for a current edition of an online textbook that is no different than an older, paperback edition of the same book for $5; yeah, I checked. My mistake for listening to my professor.

This is why we download. 

Spreading this shit like nutella because goddamn textbooks are so expensive. 

not necessarily art related but as someone who couldn’t afford their textbooks this semester this is a godsend

Hey Tumblr

personalmephistopheles:

I’m scanning around the ‘net but could use a little help.

So I have a four-ish year old creamsicle corn snake named Tamar.

Now, usually after I feed her, she’s very active right off the bat.  She’s always been like that.

But tonight she’s acting strangely.  She keeps moving around and coiling in such a way that she rubs her nose against her tail, and right now she’s sort of going in a circle on top of her log in such a way that she has an unbroken sort of ovaloid, and is keeping her head in contact with her body at all times - particularly her lower half.

My family’s kept snakes for something like ten-ish years but I’ve never seen anything like this happen.  Does anyone know what is going on and if I should be concerned?  Could she have swallowed at and awkward angle and is trying to some how re-manoeuvre it inside her?  I’m rather worried because it’s like 2am and I’m not sure what she’s doing.

Any help?

Welp! Amy’s Rage scarf is done. I know that the color isn’t right (just based off of the hoodie’s color), but in my defense I didn’t get the yarn for this. :Ia
Also, it was…interesting to do that big middle piece. Ended up mostly working out how I wanted it to! So that’s good. I think. Yeah. The entire Rage symbol came out a touch wonky (I coulda probably chained a few more at the end on the eyebrowish parts) and a bit too big, but not bad for a first attempt :U
Okay back to work on finishing the other scarves and commissions gosh I’m awful at things.
HONK honk HONK.

My scarf got lost or taken at Arisia, if you see someone with this scarf please let me know. If you found this scarf at Arisia, it belongs to me. Please return it.

This is the only Rage scarf I have made. The symbol is tied on the back by matching yarn colors multiple times. I don’t do this with a pattern and the symbol itself is an applique.
Please, PLEASE if you have found this scarf or taken it by mistake, please contact Amy or myself. :c It’s really not fair to me or to her, considering the amount of love in the scarf from both ends. Also if you could signal boost this, that would be great. Please help us find this scarf!
