A few weeks ago, I was made privy to the fact that my abuser worked for the same company that I did. By “made privy”, I mean “ran into him in an elevator and dissolved into a sobbing mess in the bathroom”.
Obviously, I needed to get out of there and was able to find a job at a company I feel I mesh with and I feel safe at. I found out yesterday that I got that job and was give a start date of two weeks from now. I feel incredibly lucky to have been able to find a job so quickly, let alone one that’s as good as this job.
I put in my two weeks notice at my previous employer and was let go on the spot. Florida is a right-to-work state, so they aren’t legally obligated to honor my two weeks. This leaves me without a paycheck right before rent is due. I won’t receive my first paycheck for my new job until around the 26th of September and my bills are due on the 20th.
I normally don’t seek the help of others, but I’m truly backed into a corner here.
I’m only asking for $400 to help me make it until the 26th. This includes my rent (my landlord is allowing me to only pay half this month and I can put the other half towards next month), my cellphone bill (my only means of communication), and my inhaler refill.
If you can donate anything at all, I would be eternally grateful to you. Like I said before, I normally don’t ask for things like this and I know things are tight for all of us, but anything helps my situation out at all.
Thank you <3
Hey everyone, this is one of my friends (who no longer has a tumblr). Please, if you can help or signal boost, this is a REALLY shitty situation, and getting terminated essentially for putting in a two weeks’ notice is awful.
You all probably know by now that I don’t blog/reblog donation requests unless I have extreme confidence and familiarity with the person in question, so please take my support for what it’s worth. Please help my friend, who only wants to be in a safe working environment.
Whenever people point to Mary Shelley and say “a woman invented sci-fi you know” I just think “well, I mean, technically a woman invented the whole concept of authoring books as far as we can tell but hey who’s keeping track”
#your faves literally could NEVER #so many white pop artists say shit like ‘im one of the boys’ #’im not a feminist’ blahblahblah #and look @ this woman #standing proudly infront of the word FEMINIST in capital letters on tv like #BEYONCE IS A GOD (via oryxs)
Did you know that in certain European countries it is illegal to display any sort of Nazi symbol? What the fascist white supremacist neo-Nazi scum of Germany, France, etc. have been doing is displaying the Confederate flag instead, because there is no ban on it.
So the next time someone tries to tell you that the flag of the Confederacy has nothing to do with racism, remember that actual Nazis are using it as their preferred symbol, and please remind them that they are actually pieces of literal shit.
Rape Culture? What is this “Rape Culture” you speak of?
Seriously though, this is terrifying. God forbid I wear a skirt outside — I’m just ASKING to be raped if I do that.
The 58% statistic actually terrifies me more than any other. Suddenly change the word and you don’t care?
No one will ever be able to convince me that words hold no power.
Are you FUCKING kidding me right now
I love how more than half dont understand what the definition of rape is and/or think that by changing the words around they can get away with it. See by changing the words to something equally horrible but not the word ‘rape’ they can feel better about themselves. I need a good derp gif, anyone got one?
