Help an nb autistic pay their rent this month.
Hey, so I really, really hate to ask for money, but basically today was my last payday of the month and I came up about thirty dollars short. Plus, I’m running low on food and I’m expecting $89 to come out of my account this Thursday for my cable. In total I need $120 before Saturday for rent.
My PayPal is email@example.com and my Venmo is @LycanLuck.
If you have nothing to give, passing this around will do wonders. Thank you.
Snoopy says hi. :)
It’s only taken me over a year and a half, but I finally got @julcheninred ’s cross stitch of @shittydinosaurdrawings advice dinosaur framed and it’s so gorgeous I can hardly stand it. Thank you Jules. I love it so much. ❤️😭❤️😭❤️
Hooray! It looks wonderful!
People who act aggressive and negative as fuck and then when you’re like “hey can you stop” they’re like “I’m going through some stuff 🥺🥺🥺” like damn dude that’s crazy me too - for example right now I’m going through YOUR behavior.
“I’m dealing with a lot 🥺🥺🥺” and I’m dealing with you so I guess we’re even
If your reactions to your trauma or your problems are making other people around you feel unsafe you need new coping mechanisms.
Me @ Company: “Your product is inaccessible to disabled people.”
Some abled @ Company: “We love you Company! You’re the best!”
SA @ me: “You know you could make that product accessible if you just spent extra money.”
Props I guess for doing the nice version of “shut up cripple, stop being mean to my favorite company.”
The whole concept that I shouldn’t have to spend extra money to get the same level of accessibility that is handed to ableds on a platter is apparently too complicated for ableds to grasp.
Some abled: “For FREE?!? But, but…you’re exploitable! It’s not FAIR unless someone can exploit you for it!”
Shhhhh you said the subtext out loud.
I see a lot of systems comparing different alters’ handwriting/art style/etc. and a lot of it is noticeably different
But I want to give a shoutout to systems whose handwriting and art styles are very much the same
This is a covert disorder and a lot of the time and differences in these things aren’t going to be noticeable (especially if you’re still in an unsafe situation)
You’re not faking it just cause you all write or draw the same way
ALSO: youre not faking if an alter starts trying to develop their own art style/hand writing! that’s all part of alters exploring and developing their individuality now that they’re finally able to and it is Perfectly Normal
Are you okay with people getting your art inked on them? Like tattoos
Sure! If you do get something tattooed I’d love to see a picture of it, and sending a tip my way or purchasing from my shop would be much appreciated in exchange for using my work ♡

It cuts off her full last name, which is LaDuke. She is Jewish, Ojibwe, and an indigenous activist.
You are in a kitchen, opening a pantry door. It contains every brand of cereal in existence.
Libido- How hungry you are
Sexual Attraction- How appealing each cereal is to you
Sex-Repulsed- The mere act of eating cereal disturbs you. You flee the kitchen to watch Netflix instead.
Sex-Indifferent- Someone brings you a bowl of cereal. Even though you don’t crave cereal, you decide to eat some anyway. Maybe because you want the person to feel happy you’re eating something they provided you. Maybe you’re just that hungry. Regardless, you’re fine with eating it since it’s already there. If it wasn’t, you wouldn’t care either.
Sex-favorable- Though you don’t particularly crave cereal, the act of eating cereal is enjoyable. So enjoyable, you go through the trouble of picking a brand to eat.
Asexual with low/no libido- You are rarely hungry, and none of the cereal appeals to you.
Asexual with average/high libido- You are often hungry, but none of the cereal appeals to you.
Aegosexual- Eating cereal sounds fun in theory but not in practice. You certainly have no interest in eating cereal yourself. You’d rather fantasize about other people eating cereal, thankyouverymuch.
Gray Asexual- You only like Lucky Charms and Apple Jacks. And maybe Fruity Pebbles but you’re not quite sure.
Demisexual- You see a box of Trix. You are familiar with the rabbit on the box, due to the commercials you’ve seen. You always sympathized with the rabbit for never getting any Trix. There are things in life you’ve wanted but have never gotten. You feel a bond with the rabbit. Suddenly that box of Trix looks tasty.
Fraysexual- You see a box of Cocoa Puffs. You have never heard of Cocoa Puffs in your life. But something about it is oh-so-appealing. You pour yourself a bowl. As you start to eat, you catch a commercial for Cocoa Puffs on TV. You now know what the mascot on the box is like. You lose interest in Cocoa Puffs for reasons you cannot explain.
Lithosexual- You notice a box of Fruit Loops. You feel an urge to eat it. Toucan Sam comes to life and asks you to eat them. This makes you uncomfortable, so you leave to watch Netflix with the sex-repulsed ace.
Reciprosexual- You have no interest in any of the cereal. Not even that box of Frosted Flakes. But Tony the Tiger shows up wanting you to eat the Frosted Flakes. Now that he wants you to eat Frosted Flakes, you want to eat Frosted Flakes.
Cupiosexual- You want to eat cereal, but none of the cereal looks appealing. Maybe if you grab that box of Corn Flakes, it’ll become appealing to you later? It’s happened to other people. You consider grabbing that box of Corn Flakes, just in case.
Orchidsexual- Some of the cereal looks appealing, but you have no interest in eating cereal.
Aceflux- None of the cereal looks good, so you close the pantry. A few days later, you decide to open the pantry again. Now, some of those brands look appetizing. You check the pantry again the next day. None of the cereal looks good anymore.
Quoisexual- You have no idea if you like a cereal because you want to eat it, or if you just think the box art is pretty. Does liking the box art count as wanting to eat it? Do you just like the mascot? Does liking the mascot count as wanting to eat the cereal? After reading everything I’ve written, you are still confused. You bang your head against the pantry in frustration.
Hi, I’m the scary narcissist that you keep warning people about.
I’m not empathetic, I’m not naturally caring, and I have extreme trauma that has irrevocably affected how I process emotions. I’m selfish, I have to consciously choose to tend others’ needs, and I often don’t recognize when I’ve hurt someone’s feelings.
I meet the criteria for narcissistic personality disorder. I agonize about making sure I don’t hurt people because of how HARD it is for me to perform empathy, which I do not naturally feel.
I choose kindness and compassion, not because they come naturally to me, or because “it’s just the right thing to do,” but because we have to take care of each other in order to have a functional society.
Every day I make the choice to be as kind and compassionate as I know how, knowing the entire time that there are people who truly, deeply, sincerely believe that this makes me a monster.
I’m not going to torture you for fun. I’m not going to kick your dog. I don’t get off on psychologically abusing people. And if you actually care about what it’s like to live with a personality disorder, and how HARD it is, extend some of that famous “empathy” of yours and stop treating people with narcissistic personality disorder like monsters waiting to snap.
I saw this on Tiktok and thought it needed to be passed on. Pololū Valley is sacred land currently at risk of being developed into yet another “scenic tourist attraction” for profit. Activists like @/melemaikalanimakalapua on Tiktok are fighting to have this petition seen by as many people as possible in order to prevent the senseless destruction of this land.
Note that the petition says not to donate to change.org–donations to change.org do NOT protect Pololū Valley.
I hope that by spreading this to tumblr, I can help it reach more people. Please sign this and reblog it if you can!
