not my government

Local Disabled Gay Begs For Money


I’d appreciate a signal boost on this if you can, because anything helps.

I am a professional author. I don’t make very much money. Authors generally don’t. I am also legally disabled. I have severe BPD II, ADD, and assorted anxiety disorders which makes holding down a 9 to 5 job impossible, which means I receive a very small check from the government. My total annual income is less than 15k.

After ten years of very little change in my life, I am starting to make a good existence for myself. I bought a car and learned to drive. I am making my way as an author and slowly expanding my catalogue of books. I am traveling more often. I recently married the love of my life and am knee deep in the very, very expensive and stressful task of immigration so that I can be with her.

Unfortunately, all of this costs more money than cowering in a basement. Oh, and did I mention that the second I move across the border, I lose that disability stipend?

I’m bad at this. I just wrote a whole paragraph about the bad month I had financially and then deleted it. I catch myself thinking things like “well you just bought some new clothes on clearance the other day, that means you’re fine.” But I just went to go get groceries and realized I didn’t have any money. And was, in fact, 50 dollars over my credit limit.

So I’m standing here, hat in hands. I’m a good fandom queer lady who could really use whatever you can give me to get over this hump. Even now I want to just delete this entire message, but then I think that damn, if even one person funnels two dollars my way, that would be… really, really, really nice.

If you want to be that angel with the two dollars, please feel free to paypal it to me at rosaaquafire[at]gmail[dot]com.

I’ll be eternally grateful for the little boost.

It’s a terrifying time for minorities, and with Donald Trump as president, he has planned to add some terrifying people to his administration. These people are particularly terrifying for LGBTQ+ members and this is why:

As you know, Mike Pence is planning on taking Chris Christie position in office. Mike Pence has said many awful things about LGBTQ members, some stuff along the lines of how conversion therapy should be implemented on the youth, he thinks marriage equality would lead to societal collapse, and he called homosexuality a choice, and also he also said that stopping gays isn’t biased, it’s him compelling Gods idea. He’s also a murder for the people of Indiana, and has killed many people who had AIDS by taking away fundings for their healthcare.

Another one trump wants to bring into his administration is Ben Carson as we all know is fucking insane. He compared homosexuality to pedophilia and incest.

Another monster is Newt Gingrich and he has called being gay fascist.

Then we have Ken Blackwell who has compared homosexuality to arson and kleptomania. He’s said, and I quote, “well, the fact is, you can choose to restrain that compulsion and so I think in fact you don’t have to give into the compulsion to be homosexual. I think that’s been proven in case after case after case. I believe homosexuality is a compulsion that can be contained, repressed, or changed. That is what I’m saying in the clearest of terms.”

ALSO let’s point out the fact that the fucking president has met with religious extremists and made promises to them like putting justice on the Supreme Court to overturn marriage equality. He has 20 candidates that he wants in the Supreme Court that agree with his ideas like this. He promised that he would sign the FADA which would allow for discrimination against LGBTQ people by government employees and others. And the anti-LGBTQ organization for marriage has sent him a plan to overturn marriage equality.

This is a scary time. I can only hope that the electoral college reconsider this nomination and vote Hillary into office. Until then, we protest. Keep protesting. Let’s show our government that we won’t stand by this. Fight back. Stand up. Stay educated.

And for us minorities, this is all our fight. We stick together.
