My 15yo kid just came out to me tonight as trans male. In order to be more supportive, I would really like some feedback from other trans folks on how to assist or better understand this process, especially on how that works today vs 30 years ago.
Caveat- I had a parent who is trans, but this isn't the same kind of relationship. I would actually be assisting my minor child in this change, so that makes me a more active participant in the process.
Feel free to boost. #trans
asking for help, DWP bullshit, sorry for being a pain
The DWP (UK benefits agency) are trying to claw back over £1000 from myself and Rune, despite the fact that we were barely able to survive the past couple of years.
We're already stretched to the limit, trying to get by on a single minimum wage income. If you can help us out, it would be greatly appreciated and we would love you forever.
Boosts hugely welcome!
Thank you all.
DWP bullshit, crying, asking for help
I really hate doing this, but we really need the help. Please share. https://www.paypal.me/caelyne
request for income help
hey y'all. we're disabled, and we don't qualify for any government income, and we really need to have income that we can use to either move out, or at least pay for our own groceries/part of rent so that our (abusive and controlling) parents feel that we're less of a Burden.
we can't guarantee any Thing in return to y'all, given our lack of ability to consistently work and output stuff.
so with that, if you're willing to help us with income:
our patreon is really helpful. it's how we pay for our meds, and it's the best form of consistent income we have rn. it's a big big thing for us that helps a lot, especially if we wanted to move out.
our paypal and cash app are more like a stopgap, it feels. we don't really wanna rely on them as income, but they do help if you want to give us some money.
thanks for reading, boosts are obviously welcome, etc. 💚🖤💙

hey gang! it's my birthday on the 28th of October and i'm trying to save for a new pen tablet! i've not been able to do any digital art since my old one broke at the beginning of the month and i really need an upgrade, preferably to one with a screen so i have less disconnect between hand and art. it would mean the world to me if anyone wants to help out with this as a birthday present!
i already have £120 to start with and my goal is £350~
Hi there if you are in America I suggest you ASAP contact your congressperson and ask them to oppose the CASE act, a weird copyright bill being voted on tomorrow
Short version: Now in addition to normal courts plus the DMCA there'd be this new weird copyright quasi-court. By my read if notice is served and you don't respond within 60 days you could get hit with a $15,000 fine as default judgement. Sounds really easy to abuse.
asking for financial help
So I've just been informed by my girlfriend that we have a handful of change to our names and that's it. They had a few sick days last month and that's left us a couple of hundred quid short this month. If y'all could share this and donate of you can, I'd greatly appreciate it. https://www.paypal.me/caelyne
Kudos to this Nashville school refusing to provide ICE with student records but how many schools have? This reveals yet another problem with maximal data collection pushed by #edtech & the groups funded by Gates, Zuckerberg etc. @Parents4Privacy https://www.wcpo.com/news/national/nashville-elementary-school-refuses-to-provide-ice-with-student-records
donation post, asking for help
We have nothing left now til the end of the month and we need food and money for travel
Maybe count this as an early birthday present for me? Helping us survive and not starve? Thanks y'all
Holy crap, now I'm even more glad I didn't get on board the WoW Classic hype train.
Blizzard, in response to a Hearthstone grandmaster from Hong Kong using a slogan from the pro-democracy movement, pulls all his tournament winnings, bans him from competing for a year, *and* fires both casters who were hosting the event, who likely didn't even know he was going to say it.
Very bad look, and I can't see any reason to give them money.
when u need a new tablet and a new laptop for art and commission work but you don’t have any spare money because capitalism is terrible and i work almost 50 hours a week and still can’t afford basic things let alone fun stuff
anyway my birthday is at the end of next month if anyone wants to love me early https://www.paypal.me/n7loren
it will also help with bills as an early birthday present
