Music-normally angry scottish or irish people singing about freedom and socialism. Also love Eminem, Bob Marley, Greenday, Steve Earle, Paul Brady, The Pogues, David Bowie, One Republic, The Beatles, The Dropkick Murphys……………..i don’t even know what my music taste is I had little phases growing up and now they have all mushed in to a messy mushy mess mush of a music taste.

"this baby came out of you but im not 100% sure its yours"
Funny thing - a woman who applied for welfare after her husband left her hadto supply DNA evidence he was actually the father. The results: he was definitely the father, but she wasn’t the mother. Her children were removed from her custody and she was sued for fraud, even though she insisted they were her children.
Turns out, she wasn’t a surrogate or a kidnapper (the two most obvious explanations) - she was a chimera. As an embryo, she fused at a very early stage with her twin, forming one individual. Her ovaries apparently developed from cells that had originally belonged to her vanished twin. Later on more tests showed that while the woman’s skin and hair DNA did not match her childrens, DNA taken from her cervix did.
WHAT THE FUCk
This went from stupid to really interesting in point 5 seconds.
MORF BINDER SCHEME FUNDRAISER
So as some of you know in August last year I did a fundraiser for the MORF Binder Scheme.
The picture above shows just some of the binders bought from the £800 we managed to raise in just 7 days.
*The guys at MORF basically give FREE binders to trans people that are not in a position to buy them themselves.*
I’m not being dramatic when I say binders for trans people can sometimes save lives, giving people that extra support they need to live in their own skin.
If you would like to donate and be part of this amazing cause you can do so here! The smallest amount is offering help to those who desperately need it.
I’ll be posting a video later today with some more information, but I just thought I’d get it out there to you lovely internet dwellers early! ;)
£1000 is the goal, but I’m sure with the right amount of publicity we can indeed SMASH that goal.
Thank you to everyone that will continue to support me through something that is very close to my heart!
On average, you have a 1 in 18,989 chance of being murdered
A trans person has a 1 in 12 chance of being murdered
The average life span of a cis person is about 75-90
The average life expectancy of a trans person is 23-30 years old
75% of people killed in anti LGBT hate crimes are poc
Think about this the next time you go crying over “cisphobia” and “reverse racism”

"When I got my first cat, it changed me. There is something about holding a cat that makes your anger melt away. And if someone does something that upsets me—I have to remember my cat. I can’t keep my cat if I get into trouble.”
"I asked if Major Cabanaw had concerns for the safety of the cats. “Of course, we always want to ensure the safety of the cats, and the staff is great about keeping an eye out for them. But mostly, it’s the offenders keeping them safe. I have never once seen an offender kill his own cat. We screen them to be sure they have no history of animal abuse. But I’ll tell you this, there was a guy killed in here because he had spit soda pop onto someone else’s cat.”"
