Prison Strike in America Phone Zap

Alright Comrades.

As you might have heard the largest prison strike in America has been taking place against modern day slavery for three weeks without a peep in the mainstream news. Even if you’re on the outside, you can help the prisoners… The IWW Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee is organizating a phone zap system to keep tabs on the prison wardens and keep them in the hot seat, and mainly to let them know that people on the outside are watching them. If you have a phone and a spare moment you can help our organizers and prisoners and show solidarity with their demands out by calling the numbers on this phone, reading the scripts and writing your name at the end to show that you called.

…even if you can’t call for whatever reason, you can still spread this message to those who can and help out our fellow workers behind bars..

What I probably miss most about my God Tier outfit is that having an instantly summonable outfit that is stylish, comfortable, and never gets dirty is extremely convenient?

My autistic patoot has so much trouble getting dressed in the morning, so I miss just being able to zap it on and go without having to build an outfit.

i’m one of those ppl who’s like “fuck generation categories they’re sort of arbitrary” and also like “wow i wonder what millennials are gonna be like in 30 years as they start to lose relevance to gen z and beyond”

(but then, i fit on the cusp of millennial and post millennial so it’s a little easier to think of it as arbitrary) but yeah it’s like, 20-35 is millennials while 5-20 or so is gen z or w/e, something like that, 1995/6 hype, wecan id as fitting into either category :v

Octovally, Pipeline Basket Trap

Agent 0: (Annoyed tone) “Kid, I hear you, but I’ve been doing this much longer than you have.

Agent Joy: “Y-Yeah I know, but things have changed since Octavio was stopped. There are traps all over the place.”

0: “Even so, this is the safest route to the kettle. We’re running out of time.”

Joy: “And as I said, things have changed, this may not be as safe as you, eh?”

0: “What?” (Thunk)

Joy: “Look out!” (SHOVE)

Z-ZAP!

0: “Kid!!”


Agent 0 @son-of-joy I regret nothing.

Dang I come up with some pretty scary stuff. If the basket trap was actually in the game, oh gosh I don’t even want to imagine.

Also I tried a new style, probably not gonna stick but I wanted to try it anyway.

Train & equip a trans woman of color to provide sliding-scale electrolysis to her many communities. ONLY 16 DAYS LEFT!!!!

Send Yocheved to electrology school, so she can provide no to low cost electrolysis to Trans folks across the country!

Hi! I’m Yocheved. I’m a working class trans woman of color living in Florida. I have a couple of problems I’m working to solve in one fell swoop and I want your help.

Number one: trans women are overwhelmingly poor, broke, unemployed, underemployed or otherwise strapped. Everywhere. Almost always. And in a country with a heterocentric medical industry, none of our basic care gets covered. One of the simplest things we need for our emotional health and physical safety is often one of the first people notice: we need to afford hair removal, especially on our faces. 

Electrolysis is the most versatile, most permanent hair removal solution available and costs $65-$125 per hour on average (and can take between 100 and 400 hours of treatment time for a trans woman’s full face). There are a very small handful of low-rate, trans-safe/friendly electrologists scattered across the country.

Number two: I am poor. Fun as it sounds, working in coffee shops the rest of my life probably won’t leave me in particularly good health by the time I’m older. I’m willing to tug my own bootstraps, but the laws of physics don’t support the likelihood of me lifting myself all the way up. I’m asking for a boost.

Receiving training as a licensed electrologist will provide me a career that could last a lifetime. This is a gateway to a much more stable life for me. I currently have no way to afford this on my own and FAFSA sure doesn’t cover electrolysis school. I will be thrilled to give back to the communities of which I am a part.

So help me swoop both these the problems right into yesteryear by helping me build a carreer providing low- to no-cost electrolysis to my many trans communities!

The Deal

Let me break down this request, because $10,000 ain’t pocket change:

Tuition at [tk school name]: $5,000

Dectro Apilus Senior 3G electrolysis machine: $4,000

Board Exam for license: $305

Electrolysis needles for use during schooling: $100

Total: $9,804 plus sales tax on the machine and needles

As part of my commitment to ethical crowdfunding, a ledger of my costs and expenditures will be available openly online at:https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1vmodTgVgVbz9_nEKWE-6yv96ka6R4CJVG_PqCYX35e0/edit?usp=sharing

Furthermore

I feel strongly committed to maximizing the usefulness of this fundraiser–your donations will benefit myself, rural and poor trans communities across the South, and Wild Iris.

For the first year, I want to pledge 15% of profits toWild Irisand 15% to a Trans Affairs account to fund medical transitions, charging a sliding scale of $0 to $140  for trans people. I’ll lug my set-up to queer gatherings/conferences and attempt to tour lgbtq centers in an attempt to really share this resource as far and wide as possible.

This may sound cosmetic, but the impact will be much more than skin deep.
