if you don’t already know
I’m the mod at FYGWS
and I’ve been running it for a few years now
i started it
because at the time
i never saw girls with septums
on my dash
it’s not hugely popular or anything
but i do have a good chunk of followers
and now my only issue
is that i can’t seem to find woc with septums
i’m lazy so I mostly reblog
but sometimes i look for photos on flickr or deviantart
I’m just wondering if there’s a certain tag
I should be looking under
or if anyone would like to submit?
I just want it to be a little bit more diverse
I know how it feels to not be represented
and I don’t feel represented on my own blog :/
so you think romney’s son buying voting machines in ohio isn’t going to make any impact on the election, right? WRONG. according to at least one person in columbus, ohio on the daily beast’s voter irregularity widget, machines with votes cast for obama are reporting as votes cast for romney. this is, in joe biden’s words, “a big fucking deal.”
spread this shit like wildfire.
This is a problem
fuck fuck fuck
voting tomorrow and this has my stomach in knots
Again? This fucking happened in Ohio when Dubya was reelected. I was a recount volunteer, and the poll workers turned recount volunteers all had stories about how the machines came in with votes on them and shit.
It was one the more futile feeling things I’ve done, as we were told flat out that what we were doing was under media blackout. And I tend not to talk about it, as I end up sounding like a conspiracy nut, but I was physically there supervising the recount.
This scares the fuck out of me. I am voting in Ohio tomorrow.
fat people of color really needs another mod
is that u? can you give it some love and care? are u willing to write image descriptions, queue up some posts (1 post a day so if you queue up 7 posts you’re done for the week!)? and maybe in the future dialogue with the other mods and I about how to use that space to continue to build community and create dialogue that we need?
send me a message if you think you this is for you.
right now we have Latina mods and we really want to build up the space to be more than us (though obvi our individual experiences are different from each other even though we are all Latin@s) and we want to share mod responsibilities with others.

Can Tumblr help change a life?
I have a good friend, J, who is finally leaving her husband after years of mental and emotional abuse and manipulation. Her friends and family are fully on board with this, luckily for her, but her ex, B, is not.
She’s tired, scared, and needs to get away from him. B, the ex-husband, has broken into her house, stolen numbers from her phone, and called them to threaten people. He’s best described as a loose cannon with a hair trigger, and he’s already successfully wormed his way back into J’s head before with emotional manipulation; they’ve been together for seven years already. We (her friends) want to help her get free at last.
J is worried for her own safety. She and her son (age 4) are moving to an undisclosed location, but they need money to get plane tickets, hotel rooms, and to pay for food and other necessities in the monetary struggles ahead while the legal proceedings unfold. Some funds will also be necessary to go through the divorce process, since he isn’t being fully cooperative with it.
I know it’s a tall order and you might not be in a position to contribute right now, but we’ve set a fundraising goal of $1,000. The more we raise, the more chance we have of keeping J and her son safe from B. Even a couple of dollars will help us reach this goal.
If you can’t afford to contribute financially, if you can reblog this post and signal boost, I will be so thankful. Donations are being gathered by a good friend of hers, since she has unreliable internet access at the moment.
If there’s enough interest, I’d love to set up a fundraiser with art/fanfic/etc auctions and that sort of thing.
Please help J out. We love her and we want to keep her safe. If you have any questions, suggestions, or information that could help, feel free to askbox message me.
Hey followers. Help & Signal Boost, please? I know J personally, and this would really, really help her out. If you can’t donate, a signal boost would be really appreciated. This guy is an enormous jerkwad, to put it mildly, and J’s already been through a lot of shit with him.
Thanks, guys. <3
Reblogging again in case some of you missed it. J’s such an awesome person, anything you could do - even if it’s just a few dollars or a reblog so maybe someone else that can help will see this - would be amazing.
We all talk about social justice and how we need to make things safe for victims of abuse to confront their abusers legally and be able to start their lives anew - here is our chance to do something, ANYTHING, to put our words into action.

If anyone knows Jesse, who is organizing a campaign for women’s reproductive rights in DC, can you let him know some asshole was just tearing down his recruiting flyers outside the Target at 14th and Irving? Dude was like 6’2” so I didn’t stop to engage him.

I think we need a logo, and we should call it the “fat signal.” Like the bat signal. But fat.
I started this blog, because I know that, as non-binary folk, we are so often misread or made completely invisible.
So come, share your photos and stories. Be heard and be seen.
I will start with sharing my photo and a brief description.
I am Mel. I am 23, mostly-femme (but sometimes…
I’m starting to get a feel for some interest in community building, which is super fabulous. While I let the momentum build in the next few days, feel free to join the Google Group in the meantime and spread the word!
SIGNAL BOOST! not that anyone from DC other than Jessica actually follows me… buuuut…
THIS IS TERRIFYING. SO. FUCKING. TERRIFYING. Everyone need to see this.
This is happening just a few blocks away from me.
Friends of mine at school have been down to the protests but I have been afraid to go. I wish I wasn’t.
Holy fucking hell. The police are literally dragging this man by his ankles across the pavement while he says, “Why are you hurting me? Why are you hurting me?” There is also more footage of the police pinning the asthmatic person the ground. He is seen being forcefully thrown out of the crowd around :30 and later the police are standing on his legs.
There is an unidentified person on the ground beside a woman in a yellow poncho who is saying, “Will someone please loosen this man’s handcuffs? He’s in pain and he’s bleeding!”
How is this actually happening?
Wow, this is disgusting!
We’ve all seen Tumblr do some amazing things ranging from donating thousands of…
