qtpoc in need of help!!

#self harm mention cw #suicide mention cw

hey everyone! you might have noticed that i was largely absent for about a week. i hope i didn’t worry anybody, considering the nature of the posts that i made just prior to the hiatus. unfortunately, i was forcibly hospitalized because of self-harm and suicide watch. i’m feeling better now, and i’m on medication for depression. however, i have bills i need to pay. i’m also on a leave of absence for school, which means i’m out of dorm housing and off the school meal plan. fortunately, i have a place to stay, but i need to pay for food. im currently looking for employment, but i don’t know how long that will take.

for more context - i do have a family that pays for much of what i do, but i’m working to become less dependent on it. my father was abusive and one of his modes of #abuse involved him manipulating through the fact that his kids were financially dependent on him. he would not allow us to look for work while in his house because he didnt want us to have a source of money separate from what he allowed us. also, i could not be openly queer in the household that i was in. i’m working v hard to not go back to that situation. i’d like to have a stable amount of money saved up to fall back on.

my paypal email is bouderdaben@uchicago.edu . if you help me out, and would like something in return, i love to draw, and i would absolutely love to draw you something. there is no minimum amount for receiving art from me! my tablet is currently broken, but i could scan pencil/marker drawings for you, or even send you a physical copy of what i’ve drawn if you like. samples of my art are below the cut! some are not safe for work !! cw for eyes, body image, skinny, and open spaces!

and last but not least, if you can’t donate (although any amount helps!), i would still appreciate reblogs and getting the word out! thank you!

When white western men condemn muslim men for misogyny, they’re not doing it because they give a fuck about women, because if they did they’d start by addressing the sexism they perpetuate personally. They don’t give a fuck about women, they want an excuse to be racist. 

Adventures at Student Health Services

Nurse/doctor-type person: [asking questions before I get a routine STI testing] So, you’re sexually active?

Me: Yeah

Nurse: Are your partners men, women, or both?

Me: Oh…uh…um…wow, both…I guess? *internally* technically? Wow that’s weird I’m a “lesbian”…also though this answer is accurate for me, way to be (unsurprisingly) binarist as fuck ugh. Although they didn’t assume heterosexuality, so they get some points for that probably?

Nurse: Do you use condoms?

Me: …oh! Erm, I have’t had penis-in-vagina sex

Nurse: Oh ok, so just oral sex then.

Me: ….

Me: ??!?!? wut. Are those my only two options? wut. ?? Also, ~yes~, but definitely not ~just~…wut ? ?

Me: ….sure?

Me: wow. The sex lives of cishets, man 0__o

Nurse: K, go over there to get your blood taken, and then pee in this cup.

Me: Ok cool. Do you have a gender neutral bathroom?

Nurse: No.

Me: …

(tw:rape) If owning a gun and knowing how to use it worked, the military would be the safest place for a woman. It’s not.

If women covering up their bodies worked, Afghanistan would have a lower rate of sexual assault than Polynesia. It doesn’t.

If not drinking alcohol worked, children would not be raped. They are.

If your advice to a woman to avoid rape is to be the most modestly dressed, soberest and first to go home, you may as well add “so the rapist will choose someone else”.

If your response to hearing a woman has been raped is “she didn’t have to go to that bar/nightclub/party” you are saying that you want bars, nightclubs and parties to have no women in them. Unless you want the women to show up, but wear kaftans and drink orange juice. Good luck selling either of those options to your friends.

Or you could just be honest and say that you don’t want less rape, you want (even) less prosecution of rapists.
