hi everyone it’s li yiffmountain and i opened one of those gofundme accounts. i’ve had people ask me in the past if they can donate to me; well, here it is! here’s why i need these donations.
i am an intersex, genderqueer-identifying youth living in rhode island. i come from an abusive household, i’m struggling to stay in school, and i’m disabled. i need money so that i can get surgery to remove breast tissue, which is causing me a great deal of physical pain due to binding and my disability; i need to buy myself food and clothing; i need money for transportation, gas, and insurance. i’m only sixteen and i was working as a sex worker trying to raise these funds. optimally, i need to raise 10k to cover these costs. if dashcon can get 17k then i can do this.
i know it’s so much to ask. we’re all trying to juggle our own transitions and expenses, but i can offer anything you want in terms of reward, and even the littlest bit helps. please signal boost this and i love all of you for helping and supporting me.
This is so important, you guys- please donate if you can! I know everyone scrolls past these, thinking that someone else will donate, but for every potential donation skipped, Li has to go even longer waiting for a surgery that could potentially turn their life around.
Even if it’s just $1 or $5, it means the world to us and it’s another step closer to getting Li the transition they’ve already waited some very long years for. Only 0.2% of the cost of their mastectomy has been raised so far.
I understand that there are perhaps causes that seem more pressing, or things you yourselves may be trying to raise money for, so don’t feel guilty if you can’t contribute. But if you can, and want to, donate, please do.
For every donation $5 and above, Li, who is an art student and digital artist, will do a piece of original art for you. (more descriptions of rewards here.)
Savannah residents seeking answers in the death of #CharlesSmith. Autopsy scheduled for today. This is one version of the event circulating on Twitter.
The first thing they put out about him after he was killed was he was a rapper who “glamorized violence” and all they could emphasize was his “troubled past.” They put up a picture of him that made him seem hard, but never bothered to put up a sweet one up like this. Meanwhile, some white guy down the street from me in the same city beats his wife to death and he was just “mentally unstable.” He is still alive.
The night Charles was killed, I had to call pop a lock and a drunk man came out of nowhere and made the pop a lock guy freak out, so he called the cops. About 2 cop cars came just to subdue the man (who was Mexican and wasn’t really causing any trouble. I tried to speak to him in Spanish so he could understand better and I kept calmly telling him to please go home. I felt so bad when they put him in the car. The cops just laughed it off.) The cops questioned me about what happened and were talking about how dangerous Savannah was that night and that they had to kill someone. All they did was laugh.
Savannah is known for this. Police brutality is rampant here. Troy Davis walked these same streets that led him to his fate. All they do is laugh.
