I guess I haven't had a pinned post yet? So hi! I'm Kristi! I have an unremarkable dayjob, and at night I host/moderate a twitch stream with my wife and her sisters!
I post when we go live, but muting #TruckCommunity will get those posts off your TL
I also post arts I do, and weird detritus from my brain.
Canonically, I'm a 15-foot tall Jaeger from the future.
I curate @genderlessinsults
If you want to follow me shoot me a message, odds are high I'll accept if you're not sketchy.
money stuff, request for help
since it's near the end of the month, here's another post, if you wanna help out, especially on patreon (but oher means are also good!)
we've been pushed to help out with $200 a month of rent for the next few months, and input to help that not fuck with our move out of here in february would be great.
as always, please put on your own oxygen mask first, don't give what you don't have. 💚💜🖤💖💙

Listen to black artists and give them your money on Friday.

Yesterday some comrades were suggesting that people donate to the Mashpee Wampanoag. Earlier this year they dealt with an attempt by the federal government to revoke government recognition of their tribe & the land rights that entailed. They also run a community food bank. The US government recognizes today as Native American Heritage Day (controversially, as it coincides with what has unofficially been the major commercial free-for-all called Black Friday for decades now), so today seems like a good day to share their donations page

re: Transition crowdfund fundraiser, please boost, UPDATE 6th October
Things have got a bit more dire lately with both living expenses AND transition costs. Here's the tumblr thread of my fundraiser which has all the details
Here's a summary of what's going on:
I am aiming to book a first appointment with the clinic after we get our unemployment benefit payment on the 6th October, which will be about £250 per appointment. I will need follow-up appointments after that but I won't know how many until then. I will also need to pay for more self-medicating supplies which will run out in the next month or two, which is about £50 for a month's supply. I currently have £110 remaining of my donation funds so far.
Our Universal Credit unemployment payments for me and my wife is around £1000 a month. For reference our rent is £350 a month (not including heating, bills etc)
We just found out that on top of our advances repayments, Universal Credit is taking ANOTHER £89.11 from our benefits this month for DWP benefits recovery. Which we have no idea where that's coming from.... So now after budgeting for food and bills we are left with -£208.44 (that’s minus)
So i may end up having to spend more and more of my what little transition funds i have just to survive.
PLEASE help me out if you can, I don't want to keep putting off my transition and being the person I want to be for longer, already at 29, the dysphoria and anxiety of it seriously affects my mental health.
Boost please! All boosting helps immesurably!
i am absolutely at the mercy of the world right now...
i'm STILL waiting on someone to HIRE ME, and i have no other income...
please, im begging y'all to help. i'm trying so hard to get on my own two feet here but like everything else in life, its not going my way just yet...
i'll be homeless soon enough, and so will my two partners and two cats...
This seems like something the fedi might like. Trans fiction bundle, discounted till the end of the weekend.
need help with bills, boosts+
There is a power bill for 260.49 due at the end of the month and if we do not pay it they will turn it off. And we need to be able to pay for groceries too. Thank you for all the help so far. It covered our medical expenses and we are so grateful! 💜 💙
