hi everyone! i'm river! i'm nonbinary & ace. i'm part of a small tulpagenic system. i'm very new to the system. #introductions
Sal: Real sorry to be doing this again but we’re yet again in a dire situation. Toxic roommate moving out and leaving us with the rent bill and taking the only car we have. So in order for our partner system to get to work, we’re gonna need a car. Right now our goal is around about $1,000.
If anyone can spare anything, our payment stuff is here:
Cash app: $Platocles
list of hot takes, possibly preaching to the choir (some of these are political)
If any of the following surprise you, you need to get out more. Only about half of these are good. No, we will not elaborate which ones.
* Someone using "they/them" pronouns
* Someone using "we/us" when referring to themselves
* Orwell's books, particularly Animal Farm and 1984, may as well be documentaries
* Regular news articles about horrible work conditions at big tech companies (particularly Amazon and AAA game studios)
* Someone identifying as anything other than human
* Adults acting like children (both the "entitled gamer" kind and the "age regression" kind)
* Minimum wage is almost universally not enough to pay for essential expenses
* "Essential workers" only make minimum wage
* People are consistently unable to take days off (reasons vary)
(Feel free to chuck some more in the replies!)
(Seriously, though. If you're feeling down, reach out to someone. Talk it through. Get it off your chest. You'll be happy you did.)
Hello! Pronoun and wearable art pins made entirely by me are up and ready for purchase. Please remember all of these are 100% hand drawn. Every single one. I am one disabled person doing my best, so sometimes lines aren't perfect but I do my best to sand off sharp edges and give you all the silly customizations your heart desires.
You can buy these from my etsy (link below)
however, if you don't like etsy (and listen, I get why) you can also purchase these from me directly here, we'll work out whats best for our transaction. Okay? Cool. Thanks for the boosts and for supporting a queer, indigenous artist 🎉
I'm not usually big on putting myself out there visually but would there be interest in a YT channel or IG feed about inexpensive, nutritious, simple meals to make -- specifically geared toward trans or even lgbtiqa+ youth who weren't necessarily taught even the basics of boiling water and done in a non-judgemental way?
I feel like this is something I could do as I pretty much had to teach myself to cook when I moved out and I've gotten good at it but I remember how daunting even lighting the gas stove was.
request for info, boosts appreciated
So I think it's safe to say that relationships with a plural system are complicated. We'd like a more general picture, though. We only have a sample size of two systems, us and our partners. (Not counting some other systems we're acquainted with, due to lack of info.)
If you're a plural system and/or are in a relationship with one, we wanna hear from you. What's it like? What makes it different than a relationship between two singlets? How do the differences between headmates play into it? Anything you're comfortable sharing, we want to hear it!
money stuff, request for help
our cat just had a vet appointment which costed $170, a majority of our month's income.
again, we're trying to maintain savings for our move in February, and we have no income outside donations because we don't qualify for disability.
we also need various things like a bike pump for our wheelchair's flat tire, to maintain getting ourselves and our cat groceries, etc
or yk, idk, there's a wishlist for the weld fang fund and stuff lol
help is appreciated n stuff, not honestly feeling all that great about this
