I desperately need help to pay my baby's vet bill and bring her ashes home!!
**URGENT: PLEASE READ/SIGNAL BOOST**
Thursday, December 1st: Hi everyone, I’m Gemma, a bi, mentally ill, and disabled woman, who is in desperate need of help, as my 14-year-old dog passed away and I need help to pay her vet bill and get her ashes.
Last Wednesday was the worst day of my life, as what I thought was a minor health issue with my dog Luna; her not eating, being lethargic and breathing heavily, turned out to be a large tumour in her stomach that had ruptured, which caused internal bleeding and infection. I then had to decide between a risky surgery with a low success rate or putting her to sleep. After discussing with the veterinarian, we decided that the best option was to end her suffering and have her euthanized.
I was with her until the end as she went to sleep, and it has been a harrowing week for me. My life feels empty without her, and I'm struggling now more than ever. One of the many struggles I have, is her vet bill, as I now owe £157.73/£556.31 to the veterinary clinic & PCS (Pet Cremation Services) for Luna's treatment and ashes. However, due to being disabled and on welfare benefits that are awaiting mental/physical health assessments, it hasn't been easy for me to pay this bill.
The veterinary clinic called me earlier and informed me that her ashes will be available to collect on Monday, so I have until then to raise the funds for them and the vet bill.
If anyone could spare any amount to help me, even if it’s just £1/$1/€1, it would save my life, and sharing definitely helps just as much. Thank you!! ❤
£10/£157.73!!

(TW: Sex - educational context, HIV prevention)
My dear lgbt+ kids,
After my last post about HIV, I received multiple asks like "I feel embarrassed to ask something so stupid but..." - and the pure fact that I got multiple of them already proves that not knowing something is no reason to be embarrassed!
Many people are not super confident in their HIV knowledge. Acknowledging that and seeking more info is a great thing. I decided to put all these questions in one post:
How do you even get HIV?
Certain body fluids can transmit HIV:
blood
semen (cum)
pre-seminal fluid (pre-cum)
rectal fluids
vaginal fluids
breast milk.
Most adults who get HIV get it through sex (vaginal or anal) or sharing needles (or other drug injection equipment). Getting it from oral sex is also possible but less common.
Parent-to-child transmission (birth, breastfeeding) is the most common way that children get HIV.
Can you get HIV from topping?
Yes. Both the top and the bottom can get HIV through penetrative sex (top means you are penetrating your partner, bottom means your partner is penetrating you).
During anal sex, the bottom has a higher risk. That's because HIV can enter the body through the rectum’s thin lining. But: HIV can also enter the body through the opening at the tip of the penis or the foreskin or small cuts/scratches/sores anywhere on the penis.
During vaginal sex, either partner can get HIV as well, through vaginal tissue, the cervix or the penis as described above.
Can you get HIV from kissing?
You can’t transmit HIV through saliva, so there would need to be blood (or another fluid of the ones named above) involved. That means you could theoretically get HIV from open-mouthed kissing if both partners have sores or bleeding gums - but this is very rare.
You can’t transmit HIV at all through closed-mouthed kissing.
Can you get HIV from a public toilet?
The only realistic risk of getting HIV from a public toilet is by having sex or sharing drug equipment in there!
HIV does not survive long outside the human body (like on the toilet seat or door handle) and it cannot reproduce outside a human host. Wash your hands, as there are other germs that do survive on surfaces, but don't worry about HIV.
Can you get HIV from getting a tattoo?
You theoretically could - if the equipment or ink has someone else’s blood in it. This is unlikely to happen unless the person doing your tattoo uses unsterilized needles.
If you get a tattoo or piercing, make sure that the person doing the procedure is properly licensed and uses only new or sterilized equipment.
Can you get HIV from masturbating?
No. The only possible way would be if there were bodily fluids from an infected person on your fingers or sex toys.
It's always a good idea to wash your hands first because there could be other germs/irritants on them - but if you are doing it all alone, there is no risk of HIV. If you are masturbating together with another person, try to avoid sharing toys. If you do share them, use a new condom for each partner.
Can you get HIV from drinking alcohol?
When we talk about transmission via drug use, we are talking about sharing needles or drug equipment - they may have someone else's blood on them.
Alcohol use doesn't involve needles, you can not directly get HIV from being drunk. But: being drunk (or high) can lead to risky behavior that sober you wouldn't participate in, such as unprotected sex! It's a good idea to be careful around alcohol.
Isn't there a cure for HIV by now?
No. Once you have HIV, you have it for life - but the good news are there is treatment available! Someone who is HIV-positive and starts receiving treatment early has a normal life expectancy.
Medicine can reduce the amount of HIV in the blood (this is called viral load). In fact, it can make the viral load so low that a test can’t detect it anymore - and if you have an undetectable viral load, you will not transmit HIV to others!
With all my love,
Your Tumblr Dad

Obviously Disney intentionally under advertised this movie then released it at the same time as Black Panther (MCU movies always take a majority of the theaters when they're released these days) with the intent of forcing it to bomb so Disney has an excuse to never have a gay protagonist again.
And obviously it worked because I didn't hear about it until after it bombed opening weekend.
But I like to be an optimist and believe we can turn this around. Everyone go out to see the movie with the gay protagonist to show Disney that this is what we want.

aptobinary trans people: brothers and sisters, men and women, transfems and transmascs
also aptobinary trans people: how dare you not identify as trans? you just have internalised transmisia and think that transness is bad and wanna distance yourself from us
yeah no. i've just been signalled many times by so many trans people that you all don't want me/us around. the only thing i'm distancing myself from is exorsexism. you can't walk around acting like we don't exist and then get mad when we say we aren't part of your community.

If a transgender person asks you to deadname and misgender them in front of certain people. Misgender them and deadname them in front of those people. It doesn't matter how icky or gross it may feel, it doesn't matter you'd rather be honest. It doesn't matter if there's more of you there. Certain people aren't safe, and honesty IS NOT the best policy when honesty could put them at serious risk. It doesn't matter if there's a crowd, because when there isn't shit goes down.
Be an ally, do what they ask. Understand that the trans person knows more about their situation than you do, and this includes who's safe and who's not. Some one can be "trans friendly" to other people, but not to people they know or specific people. Do as the trans person asks, yes it's uncomfortable, but it's 10 times worse if the person we don't trust finds out. 100 times worse if they have access to us when you're not around.
Respect trans peoples safety. Misgender and deadname when asked.

I don't receive my welfare benefit of £317 until later today, however, it won't be enough to cover my rent, utilities and this bill, so I'm really in desperate need, and have no one else to turn to.
If anyone could spare any amount to help me, even if it’s just £1/$1/€1, it would save my life, and sharing definitely helps just as much. Thank you!! ❤

My dear lgbt+ kids,
Some people struggle with telling the difference between friendship and romance and may take a long time/go through some confusing times before they figure out which one they actually want.
You may read this and think about people who admired their childhood best friend in a very intense way... and realize years later that this friendly admiration was actually a crush.
Maybe you are also picturing the opposite: Someone had a crush or even dated someone... and realizes later that they actually never felt anything but friendly admiration for them.
Probably not the first thing you think about but also possible: Someone realizing they do not actually want any friendships at all but do want a romantic relationship.
The first two are common experiences among people of many different labels. For example, the middle one could ring true for a gay person (who had straight "crushes" that were actually just friendships) or an aromantic person. The third one may be less common but is just as valid. For example, some neurodivergent people do not relate to the concept of platonic friendship.
Those "friendship/romance confusions", in whatever form, can happen for a lot of different reasons: subconscious pressure to fit in, active denial of your feelings (for example because you do not feel ready to face that you are gay), genuine confusion while you are figuring feelings out... and any combinations of those things!
All of that is normal and okay. Feelings are complicated and oftentimes don't fit textbook definitions. They'd be confusing enough all on their own - but of course, it also plays a role that many of us feel pressure from the (open or indirect) expectation that we will grow up to be straight, and may not know who to talk to when our feelings don't cooperate with that expectation. Many of us are working through all that confusion all on our own and in secret which only makes it harder.
So, if you relate to any of this - you are in good company! There are others who feel the same way.
With all my love,
Your Tumblr Dad

It really cracks me up that the GOP is like “WHY WON’T MILLENNIALS AND ZOOMERS VOTE FOR US???” when only a minority of them are finally coming around to the idea that maybe gay people deserve to get married like straight people do.
(Btw, supporting gay marriage is like close to the bare fucking minimum when it comes to LGBTQ+ rights, there are so many other issues affecting queer people that deserve cisgender/straight people’s support too)
