As many of you know, our friend Rosa Sparks is having a real shit time of it lately. The most recent in a long string of personal upheavals is that the house where she and her daughter live was just robbed, and many of their personal belongings were taken. Rosa is about to start her dream job, and the organization is giving her the opportunity to work from home so she can be flexible for Mini Sparks’s demanding school and gymnastics commitments. However, in order to work from home, she needs to be able to use her own laptop. I’ve spoken to her about what Tumblr could do, and she’s expressed that the laptop and some working money is of the most immediate concern. I’d love for us to raise $2,000 for her to replace her laptop as soon as possible, and to give them some cash to replace any necessities while all the insurance bullshit gets worked out. Normally under these circumstances, we’d set up a Chip In, but that site is shut down and I can’t find a similar set up that won’t charge additional fees for donations. So instead I am simply asking you to please PayPal any amount you can spare directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free to reblog this post, or repost about it. Rosa is a personal friend to many of us, and a great inspiration and entertainer to many, many more in this community. Thank you so much!
boost and donate if possible. rosa is amazing and has been here for a lot of us.
Please email and call these spaces and let them know that you are unhappy that they are allowing Rachel Ivey of Deep Green Resistance to speak at their space as part of the Resistance Rewritten speaking tour. Rachel Ivey considers trans women to be men; equates being transgender with being “trans racial”; and is friends with Cathy Brennan, a well-known transmisogynist who has publicly outed trans youth, filed lawsuits against her critics, and campaigned against gender identity protections. More on Rachel Ivey and DGR’s transphobia here.
We have included a sample email below.

July 19: The Democracy Center (Boston, MA)
To whom it may concern,
I am writing because I saw that [space name] is hosting an event on the Resistance Rewritten tour featuring speaker Rachel Ivey of Deep Green Resistance. I am asking that you cancel the event due to Rachel Ivey’s oppressive beliefs about transgender people.
Rachel Ivey considers transgender women to be men; equates being transgender with a white person saying they are a person of color; and is friends with Cathy Brennan, a well-known anti-trans blogger who has publicly outed transgender youth, filed lawsuits against her critics, and campaigned against gender identity protections. Deep Green Resistance, the organization for which Ivey is speaking, has as its official policy that trans women are men. This is unacceptable.
I urge you to cancel this event. Transgender women are some of the most at-risk people in our society for violence, harassment, and murder. People like Rachel Ivey wish to obscure the intense violence done to transgender women, and indeed reinforce trans oppression.

This is JASON FYLES and he goes to my university (Newcastle University, North East of England) He is 19 years old, 5’8, ginger hair and slim. He was last seen in the Sandyford area at 2:45am on Thursday morning and has not been seen since. He was wearing a blue shirt, grey cardigan, beige chinos and brown ankle boots. Everyone in uni is so worried about him along with his family and friends. We are coming together as a university to appeal for his safe return. It is thought that he lost his friends on the night out and tried to make his way back by himself. Please, I am begging for you to REBLOG THIS, even if you don’t live in Newcastle, or England. Every REBLOG means that someone else will see his face, they will know who we are looking for, and your followers could be the one to know his whereabouts. Stay safe Jason, we’re looking for you.
THIS WILL NOT RUIN YOUR BLOG!

PLEASE. Nobody reblogged my own post on this which I posted an hour or so ago so I’m wondering if nobody will now. This guy is my friend. If I have ever sent you a nice ask or reblogged something of yours and it made you happy for a second (or even if I haven’t; this is about helping him, not doing me a favour) for God’s sake just help now, help to find my friend Jason. You want me to make him human to you?
- Once we all grew beans in pots as part of a Biology experiment- the experiment failed miserably and made the whole lab stink, but his was the only bean that grew and he was actually pretty proud about it
- He learned to knit as part of a school project where he had to learn a creative skill, and when a couple of people teased him about it he said “gender is a social construct” and carried on knitting like a badass
- He loves the scene in The Great Gatsby where Gatsby throws all his silk shirts around and he and I used to giggle over it together
- Once I asked him if he had a string of tinsel I could use in a photoshoot and he brought me a big cardboard box full of tinsel and fairy lights because he’s a helpful and lovely guy
He’s HUMAN and he needs our HELP and just PLEASE PLEASE FUCKING REBLOG THIS??? He’s been missing for four days now- when he went missing he would have been wearing his contact lenses and he won’t have had his (very thick) glasses with him so by now he’ll have had to take his contacts out and throw them away and he won’t be able to see well and oh God just please signal boost this
I reblogged this earlier but there are thousands of you who see my posts so it’s worth putting it out there again
Nevermind. I think this covers it.
Wow. This is a work of mfing art.
