I’ve never had a headcanon so strong where I’m like, “I don’t care about actual canon, I don’t care what you say to me, this is how it really is,” until WoC!Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman should be a woman of color. Nothing you say can convince me otherwise.

commiefemme:

Hi everyone! This is Alex (or Ally or Sasha), aka Tumblr user commiefemme.

If you know me at all, you know I absolutely hate to be doing this. Asking for help is difficult when you are as stubborn as I am.

However, my family and I are struggling to make it at this point in time.

I currently work full time as a secretary and a data entry specialist, and that pays fairly well for a woman as young as I am. I also have multiple weekend jobs (tutoring, editing, doing photo shoots, modelling, being a maid, and child care). But this just isn’t enough. I’m currently in the process of finding another weekend job on top of this.

My dad works two jobs full time. My mom works three jobs full time (yes, three full time jobs. She is super woman). However, my mom is losing one of her jobs, and is fighting to keep another.

Unfortunately, we’re just sliding by. Barely.

I am currently in the process of paying off a student loan and a few hefty medical bills. I have skipped multiple medications and necessary doctor’s visits because I simply don’t have the money (which is a no-no when you have severe asthma and neurological issues). As most of you know, I have quite a few health issues, and I desperately need money to see my GP, my psychiatrist and therapist, a GI professional, and a neurologist. As most of you know, I live with PTSD, depression, and bipolar disorder. I am physically disabled. Nobody really knows what’s going on with me, and we’re still trying to figure that out so I can treat and figure out how to live with whatever condition I have. Because of my physical condition, I cannot work some days. As you can imagine, missing just a few days of work is a huge blow. I’ve even given up eating vegan just so I can eat whatever is available. Fortunately, my coworkers understand, and they are kind enough to bring food for me.

Also, my computer recently broke. I wouldn’t normally care; however, I am currently in school and need it for online classes, and I absolutely need it for work.

But my biggest concern is my family. We are struggling to keep our roof over our heads and food in my youngest siblings’ bellies. Both of my parents are experiencing health issues, and they need to see a doctor as soon as possible (especially my dad—he messed up his knee and back and will probably need surgery again, unless he wants to limp around and not be mobile most days). My dad also needs to see a dermatologist—he has multiple melanomas, and has had many removed. However, since it’s been so long, my mother and I are concerned due to the spread of melanomas.

I have sold as much as I could to help pay for the litany of things listed above. I absolutely love music, and y’all know I was a band geek in high school. Music is my life. I have sold a clarinet, my keyboard, my drum set, my xylophone, and a guitar.

My family has sold as much as possible as well. My dad used to work for an art gallery, and most of the time, he would bring home beautiful, authentic paintings and lithographs from some of the most famous artists (his favorite was Dali). That killed him.

My mother has sold almost all of her jewelry. She only has her engagement ring and an amulet from my great grandmother. She’s considering selling her ring.

Even my sister is trying to help. She’s only 12, and she’s selling some of her most valuable possessions to keep this family afloat, which a child shouldn’t have to do.

If you could help, I would be eternally grateful. Donating, spreading the word, or even a few words of encouragement will be the greatest help on the planet.

I have one rule: if you cannot afford to donate, do NOT risk your own financial needs for this! You have your own needs, too!

If you donate, I will happily try to do something for you! If you’re comfortable with sharing some information, I would be happy to send you a card, a piece of art, or any hand-made item I can think of.

One way or another, you will receive a warm welcome!

Again, thank you so much for considering this. It means a lot when you just read it!

6 months in jail for being a responsible father.

How!! How, do you possibly justify that

By not doing what you’re told to do by the state. They say pay $100 and then you pay $110, you legally broke the contract.

this is a gross miscarriage of justice. ridiculous. it’s like a black man is literally not supposed to win or be left alone when he is doing right in this bullshit nation

i looked this up and the details aren’t quite right in this post even though the actual situation doesn’t make it any less bad

the modified terms he didn’t know about meant that he had to pay more money for child support than he was currently paying, so he was actually (unknowingly) underpaying for the child support and he got in trouble for not paying enough. he was also spending time with his son outside of the terms that he didn’t know had been changed.

once he found out he wasn’t paying enough, he immediately paid upfront for the full amount that he owed due to mistakenly underpaying but he was still sentenced to jail anyway for not paying enough in child support and for breaking the schedule of visitation he never knew had changed

Literally how I feel about a lot of things, though…

This is literally me everyday. Living is really hard!

whenever i read fan fiction i usually have to stop at some point to cry because the characters families are so accepting of their sexuality

transwomanism:

Black Trans Women & Street Harassment:

Conversations on Street Harassment often exclude Black Trans Women because we don’t view them as women& we see their bodies as inherently deserving of violence. We tend to see street harassment of trans women, not as gender based systematic violence, but as non-existent or inexplainable & unavoidable tragedy.

reblogging here because i can see this being relevant to anyone who’s ever tried to get out of an abusive relationship

Reblogging because that last comment made me reread the whole thing in a new light and realize this could be vital information. So, putting it out there for everyone, and hoping no one ever really needs it.

chutzpadik:

experimenting w gender identity is always something to be encouraged. transness is not a precious commodity. it’s not something u can appropriate. and even if u discover that you’re actually cis, that you feel most comfortable as a cis boy or girl, exploring gender will always teach u something new and important about yourself.

you’re not a “transtrender” if u aren’t or haven’t always been completely confident in your transness. u and your identity are 1000% valid.

Anonymous whispered: Are you homophobic?

jadathedirector:

No not at all. I’m don’t ‘support’ the lifestyle, but I don’t hate them, or discriminate against them. Jesus still loves them, so I do too.

the christian way to say you’re homophobic.
