Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.

People from middle and upper middle class can say these things and get away. People who don’t know what starting capital is can say these things. People who literally don’t know what its like to have nothing or to live in poverty can say these things.

You can’t follow your dreams without some start up cash from somewhere. And most people don’t have that. Like if money was no object and people could just ~live their dreams~ then why are there children starving in 1st world nations

It’s the social economic version of “just stop being depressed”

Actually reblogging again to add commentary:

"All you need is a house and food and a laptop".

And internet for the laptop. And electricity. And plumbing. And heat. And possibly has for your car. Oh and tabs and emissions if you have a car. Travel if you live away from family/friends or have a job that requires it but doesn’t pay for it.

And, hm, what else?

Oh yeah!

Medications. Doctor appointments. Replacement for things like canes and wheelchairs if they break and your insurance doesn’t cover it (oh, and if you’re self employed, you have to pay for insurance, too).

Not only is this super classist, it’s ableist as fuck.

Alright tumblr fam! Here we go!

I have 14 days to raise $8,500 for top surgery. I can’t do this without your help and I really appreciate anything you can give!  I’ve also created tons of fun perks (like handmade stationary sets! and zines!) which you can claim on my donation page right here:

Click here to donate to my top surgery fundraiser!

For those of you who don’t know me yet, here’s a little more information!

My story

Hey lovelies! I’m Myles and I’m a fem transsexual man hoping to have top surgery in March.  Because of the unexpectedly early surgery date, I’m now rushing to fundraise and could really use your help.  This procedure is both life-saving and life-changing for me, so please donate if you can! Every little bit helps and I am so deeply grateful for anything you can give.

Being “visibly trans” has made it very difficult to get and maintain jobs.  I’ve been let go from two jobs already for being trans, and I currently work two jobs just to cover my rent. I’ve tried hard to save money for surgery and I managed to scrape together the $500 deposit the surgeon requires.  But the $8,320 price tag for this surgery is way out of my range.  

I’ve struggled with dysphoria for a long time, finding myself in psychiatric programs because of the depression and anxiety it’s caused me, and I’ve been blessed to find so much relief since starting hormones.  Recognizing myself in the mirror for the first time is an incredible experience.

But I am still struggling everyday with having large breasts. I bound my chest for years, causing myself severe back pain.  Now I walk around in the world with my unbound chest and receive stares, harassment, and threats of violence nearly everywhere I go.  This surgery will help me to feel safe in public and at home in my own body.  

I know it’s super cheesy but I feel like I’ve been in a little cocoon all through my transition. For me this surgery is going to help me burst out of my cocoon and finally see my wonderful butterfly self reflected in the mirror!  Please help me make this a reality by donating and by sharing this campaign far and wide!

Thx for reading, you are all angels <3 <3 <3

Trying to get this on as many social media platforms as possible.
A Fight to Survive TBI: The Story of David On the Road to Recover from Traumatic Brain Injury.
August 24, 2012 drastically changed my life. What happened that evening has left David in a vegetative coma and I am desperate to save my son’s life and future. David was pistol whipped, had his jaw broken and then his unconscious body was robbed. Though David regained consciousness, he was incoherent and rushed by ambulance to UMDNJ trauma center in Newark, New Jersey. It was there that he underwent emergency craniotomy surgery to alleviate the pressure from his swelling brain.
He is currently living in a sub-acute unit at a nursing home being fed via a gastric feeding tube. He is no longer entitled to physical therapy because he has shown no signs of progress. This means each day he lies in bed approximately 19 hours and sit in a wheelchair for 5 hours with no physical stimulation aside from being dressed and his diaper changed.
The importance behind physical therapy is that it will help him maintain his muscles and joints; to achieve his goal to attain flexibility, balance and coordination free from pain or suffering, so that he may lead a normal life again; performing all of his daily activities with minimal or no difficulty and without dependency. It can even help with his cardiopulmonary and neurological functions.
With prolonged treatment, it is possible for him to regain a large share, if not all of his mobility and it will improve his overall fitness and health.
David’s survival depends on continued physical and mental stimulation therapies which most insurances are not willing to fund long term. The lack of such treatment poses a direct threat to David’s ability to return to a life that extend beyond sitting in front of a television for hours on end in a nursing home. He deserves better.
His recovery is destined to be a long and arduous one, with no guarantees. But in order for him to have that chance, he needs, aside from a miracle, funds for aggressive physical therapy, a private neurologist and a specially designed vehicle for myself to accommodate his wheel chair.
Please join my family in our fight to get David the medical and physical treatment he needs. The amount we are now trying to raise is just the beginning for David and we could use your support. Thank you!
Please reblog, donate, and pray for David #teamwu
