Hey y'all! 🤩

I'm new to mastodon! So I'm doing an

I'm Elyssa/Leelums and I'm a black artist that illustrates, dabbles in animation, video game design, and a lot of things! I love working with local artists to help them create their vision. I'm also currently in university!

I really want to help create a supportive empathetic community together here 😻

Thank you so much everyone who has been spreading my post and donating. After only one day I’m at half my goal and I made an appointment for my wisdom teeth removal next week!!! I’m so happy to get these cursed teeth out of my mouth!!!

I was so scared to ask for help because I didn’t think ppl would care. It’s wild how much community support can really help overcome these things. I appreciate the help so much and wish blessings for everyone that has spread my gofundme and donated.

fundarising, help a trans woman Rojava fighter, boosts appreciated 

Autumn:

> I’m a trans woman who was active in Zapatista activism in Mexico for many years before going to Syria to support the women’s revolution and to join the YPJ.

> The YPJ, or the Women’s Defense Units, is an all-female militia under the umbrella of the Syrian Democratic Forces, which defends the Rojava Revolution, and the Kurdish Women’s Liberation Movement.

> I was injured after 6 months. The injury requires a complex surgery to correct.

(If you want to avoid your state associating you with Rojava, I can be your intermediary for donations. I'm reachable on encrypted chats and can forward your donation with a keyword on the public log so you know it went through.)

In short, white people: Be race traitors not because you feel sorry for poor helpless POC and want to "save" us because eurgh no, but because your humanity, your freedom, your and your children's futures, and life itself on this planet depend on dismantling whiteness. It is a fight for your survival, too.

And I don't mean cutesy theatrical "Ugh racism makes me so mad!! >:(" stuff when it's hip and they can do it without offending their other white friends, I mean the kind of belly-deep, boiling, bursting rage when you really *get* how fucked up and wrong all this is, how much has already been ripped away and will be ripped away by the systemic dehumanization of Black and Indigenous peoples. The kind of anger that drives you to tell your friends to go fuck themselves. No more pledges to "do better," no more teachable moments where you treat the pain of BIPOC as opportunities to better yourselves. No more belief in "progress," no more comfortable distance that gives you the benefit of being beatifically benevolent.

If white people can't feel anti-racism to be THEIR OWN fight that they have skin and blood and guts in then they will, at best, be placating bystanders and whiny "allies" who demand to be carried and catered to at every step.

I wish white people would be less nice and well-meaning about racism and a hell of a lot madder about it.

please boost - trying to find a place for a trans woman to leave her abusive controlling family 

I'm posting this on behalf of a 20 year old closeted trans woman who lives with her family. Her family hates her and is incredibly abusive and controlling. She really needs a place to get out to.

She's in Pennsylvania. If you're around there and can take in a person, or think you might know people who can, please pass it on.

I don't expect anything will come of this, but I'm really hoping that we can make a real difference to one person's life. She needs to get out and she deserves to be happy and to actually be able to live.

But the Fascists know the secret, and we the Left better learn it fast: Nothing happens "should" or "shouldn't" if you don't make it happen.

For real though, if you're in the USA and near state capitals and are visibly of color..VISIBLY....pls be safe!

stay away

Good morning

PV did not shut down because of group infighting. Anyone saying that is trying to deflect away from the same spicy whites that have been the main problem for a year that have yet to deal w being what they are: Colorist and antiblack.

The same PV crew from before is still chillen together, just elsewhere.

reboost this, ta

Any grown person who somehow claims they STILL don’t see this country is built on white supremacy is willfully ignorant and a liar. Even on the left, “woke” white ppl who rail against talking about race as “identity politics”, completely deny how race and whiteness/white supremacy needs to explicitly dismantled for liberation & how it is married to American capitalism can suck my fat meaty sweaty butt cheeks. 🤷🏾‍♀️

Hi everyone, I just joined! I'm mostly going to be posting art and creative stuff. I really appreciate having a space to post where I can just relax and post without ads and pressure to conform to an algorithm

mutual aid needed 

Hey all, this sucks to ask but I’m a white disabled trans person now 2 months behind on rent, and my unemployment isn’t going through. I am out of options. Any help at all would be very very appreciated.

thoughts on childhood trauma & culture 

It’s all a lie. By being born every child automatically deserves what they need to just stay alive, in addition to love nurturing and respect.

Ending this world that operates on endless oppressive structures is our birthright. Coming into this world and being guaranteed food, water, and shelter ESPECIALLY when abundance exists - is something every human being deserves.

thoughts on childhood trauma & culture 

This is such a common childhood experience among the people I know.

And I think there’s a link between this childhood experience [along with so many other factors] and what shows up in adulthood as accepting crumbs. People being like “You should just be happy for a $600 stimulus check” and looking down on people who want to fight for more. Viewing them as spoiled somehow for wanting a better world and to have their basic needs met. “Entitled”

thoughts on childhood trauma & culture 

Earlier today I was thinking about how common it is for parents to say things like:
“I give you food and water and clothes and a roof. You should be eternally grateful, I could just let you starve on the street and die but I don’t” (and usually accompanying this is other emotionally/psychologically abusive behavior)

What it communicates to a child is that they are not inherently deserving of basic necessities. And that nobody is. (1/?)
