Hi, I hate to beg for help, but my family’s in a pretty rough situation. Right now, my mom’s unemployed and is having the hardest time ever finding a job that wont treat her like an animal on account of having a criminal record, and we are barely getting by on my weekly minimum wage paycheck. Since she has nowhere else to turn to, she’s now turned to her passion for candlemaking to try to scrape up some cash to get by. So she’s created a gofundme to kickstart her business! I’d like you to help by spreading the word, and if you can, donate a bit of cash! My family would really appreciate it!
Now, you might be thinking something like “what the fuck???candles????????????wha” and i understand, you’re confused why candles, but you see: being a pagan, mom makes these special candles and soaps that are basically spells. you light em up in your house, you rub em all over your body, and fortune comes your way. I’m going by what i remember my mom telling me, dont quote me on this. If you ask my mom about her candles, she’ll give you all the specifics you need to know and talk your ear off about candles.
help ma buddy out
Using the asterisk after trans* seems inclusive until you actually look at its history and what trans women and nonbinary people are saying about it. Here are some links about the nonbinary erasure and transmisogyny.
- It is used to degender trans women, exclude nonbinary people, and was popularized by a white cishet guy who profited off it
- It is used by truscum to exclude nonbinary people from the trans community
- It is specifically transmisogynistic and excludes trans women from the trans community
- It is used to appear inclusive without actually changing any communities to include trans people, just like using ‘gay’ instead of ‘LGBT’
- It is superfluous and this post describes a whole lot of problems.
- It is overinclusive and can include cis people when they really shouldn’t be included
- It makes nonbinary people feel less trans, which can be a factor in dysphoria and internalized transphobia
All links go to posts on my own blog so they won’t go dead like the links in the last link-gathering post I saw on this.
