How old am I? Well, I just bent over to tie my shoes and all my bones and skin fell off
PLEASE HELP ME
Please help me I really don’t know what to do!!!! Donations have really come to a halt and I had to give my brother some of the funds I’ve raised in order for him to get to work for the rest of the week! Anything any of you can spare really does help!
Please continue to help!! I’m trying to look for a job but there are virtually no options currently due to the pandemic and it’s really putting a strain on our household finances
If any of my nonblack followers are able to please consider donating to help me and my family purchase groceries and pay for other household expenses during this time!!
Cash app: $imaniispoor
I’m extremely proud of all the support I’ve seen that’s been given to the families of those killed as well as organizations supporting the protesters!
As a Black American the recent publicized deaths of my people at the hands of police brutality and other state sanctioned violence on top of the stress of living during the time of Miss Rona has caused both emotional and financial strains. If any of you are able to donate or circulate my post I really appreciate it.
Please continue to uplift and support Black Americans both living and death during these times. I love y'all please stay safe and protect yourselves❤❤❤
Anyway yeah I’m mad so I compiled these Hamilton / LMM critical links from various posts, reccs, and Google, and I’ll add more as they come in. Enjoy.

did you know the candy cane symbolizes jesus? it’s shaped like a J for jesus, the red and white colors stands for the colors of the japanese flag (which jesus helped design), the peppermint flavor is an homage his favorite contestant on rupauls drag race, and the swirling color pattern represents jesus’s struggles with vertigo
“hamilton didn’t glorify slave owners and slave traders, it just humanized them into relatable and likable characters that are way more marketable when you water down the terrible cruelty they actually enacted in real life”
all ace discourse aside like whether or not you have an opinion or just don’t care, at some point we NEED to discuss how ableist it is that ace allistics continuously headcanon autistic-coded characters (sometimes even autistic-coded CHILD characters) as asexual and then call autistics who discuss the way this hurts us “aphobes”. desexualization of autistic adults is a legitimate problem that stems from 1.) infantilization and the perception that we don’t/shouldn’t have the mental (or legal) capacity to make adult decisions like marriage, having sexual relationships, and having children and 2.) the belief a disturbingly large number of the population holds that we should not have biological children because they might “end up like us”. y’all can have your ace headcanons but if you’re not autistic you need to stop headcanoning autistic and autistic-coded characters as asexual, and you need to listen to autistics when we tell you to cut it out. this isn’t about ace discourse, it’s about ableism, and y’all need to listen to autistics and care about us.
(also headcanoning minors as ace when you’re an adult is fucking weird for a number of reasons but that’s a different post)
Tweet Transcription: Hey all I hate to ask anyone for anything but I’m an immunocompromised mother who just lost everything i own to a fire, including my laptop + tablet i do commissions on- I expect nothing but appreciate everything.

Please label donations “for Alex”
Motel Funds for Homeless
My name is Alex! I’m a 21 year old Jewish Latina and I’m currently dating my boyfriend of over a year, Kleyton, a 22 year old Guatemalan immigrant.
I am chronically ill, and I cannot work. I have severe endometriosis and adenomyosis, 4 surgeries over the last 11 years of my life. I’m desperately waiting for the 5th, which has been stopped because of the virus. I’m in constant, bloody, pain and also can’t lift anything, which is why I can’t work. My boyfriend is a very hard worker, a construction man and a mechanic. He lost his construction management job with the corona virus closing down his site.
We have scraped by due to sw, donations, and a gofundme. But something happened Friday. Two of our roommates fought in a very horrid and scary display of domestic violence. She won’t do anything about it, and we can’t stay here waiting for him to beat her again. They’re also furious with us for being present during the event. This event has really harmed us, bringing up things from both of our pasts and making us scared and anxious and unsafe in our own home. We cannot stay here. We can’t be here while it’s unsafe and scary like that, we can’t take it. We have to move.
Because we JUST moved, we don’t have any money to again. And we gotta get out of here ASAP. We have to be some place safe where we can calmly find him work and keep pushing forward. Tomorrow, Monday the 29th, we will be moving into a hotel. We’ll have to pay daily until we find somewhere to go. There is a Super 8 for us to go to, and we’ll need $70 a day plus food expenses and various other things like our $40 phone line. We need help basically escaping here to the motel.
I take PayPal and cash app!! Please please please consider helping us. We’re very unsteady and scared and shaken right now. Reblogs will be so so appreciated, as well as good luck wishes/vibes. Please consider us in this scary time.
PayPal: paypal.me/omgmanagment (please label donations “for Alex”)
Plz reblog ❤ I almost passed out feeding the pets, it’s not getting any better.
Donate to a trans sex worker living in a shit rural village struggling with chronic pain&fatigue so maybe I can have a week or two where my choices aren’t “be poor” or “intoxicate the pain away to work for literal nickles IF camroom viewers even feel like tipping at all”?
I really don’t wanna have to get fucked up to work this week but I have 12$ and a bottle of 90 proof coconut rum in the fridge and this pain wave is fucking me over HARD
This is the tweet where the “cruelty free cocaine” discourse came from lol
highlights from the twitter thread
You can’t even joke about Twitter being full of Crackheads at this point cause its true.
Sick of seeing you BEG for help
I haven’t been begging, I’ve been selling a service.. but y'all want me to beg? Fine. I’ll beg. I’m TIRED. We have 4 kids, and no current stable income. Their other father refuses to pay his child support because we called CPS on him for bringing our kids around a known pedophile. Our state refuses to do another lockdown regardless of covid numbers going up rapidly and DAILY in our small town, and 3 members of our 6 person household are high risk. Unemployment is literally unreachable. I’m flooded with work because I’m trying to keep us afloat right now. I’m singlehandedly organizing the protest in our town. And honestly my brain is about to explode. I’m unable to go to therapy anymore. I’m unable to afford my meds. I’ve barely eaten in well over a week because I’m so stressed trying to make money. We BARELY made rent, and had to pay a late fee. The only reason our power and gas haven’t been shut off is because they’re not allowed, but we still owe them..
So honestly, yeah. I need help. So if anyone is able to help. Please consider.

Women in Bradley County Jail are being kept in horrible, unsanitary, and unsafe conditions. Literally signs for help in the window.
The best way to help is to bail them out!!
Please if you have a couple of dollars to spare we are doing our best to get as many women out. Women who can’t, will get money in their commissary for sanitary products.
