I hate to have to do this, but I’ve got to get help from somewhere. 

Midnight is my father’s 20+ cat, that’s been a major support to him and myself after his stroke six weeks ago. Recently Midnight has lost a great deal of weight and began going to the bathroom outside of his liter box. I’m concerned that this means there is a serious medical problem with him, but my father is to worried about his own extensive medical bills for us to be able to afford to take him to a vet. 

Recently my father has been threatening to just put Midnight and my own cat outside to fend for themselves. Midnight is so old I don’t think he’d servive for very long especally if he does end up outside, and my cat has never been outside before in his life. 

Anything will help towards getting Midnight back to good health, and anything beyond what we need for his medical bills will go towards my father’s medical bills.

Please if you guys can spare anything go to http://www.gofundme.com/8g05s0

Update time, after removing the lids from the litter boxes we have Midnight started defecating in them again (yay) but he’s still urinating on the floor (not yay). With help from some very generous people here we’ve had 110$ in donations, 22% of the goal. 

Thank you all so, so much. I’ve spoken to our family vet and unfortunately they can’t let us make payment so I can’t take him until I have the whole amount. I’m looking around to see if there is another vet in the area with a different policy.

A 20+ year old cat will most certainly NOT do well outside! That would be a death sentence. I hope you can find a solution that will not put either of your sweet kitties in danger. :(

I’m doing everything I can to prevent that, Midnight spent most of his adult life as an outdoor cat. So he does know ‘the ropes’ as it is, but even so, he would not last long outside at all. There are many dogs that are left to roam lose in the area and he’s just not healthy enough to run from them. 

So fair I’ve gotten him a tub that’s much shallower that the litter boxes and put litter in that. As of today, he hasn’t gone outside the box and I hope that continues to be the case. That’ll at least buy me time to raise the funds to get him to the vet. I got him some nice wet cat food and mixed it with his dry to take in hopes that would get him to eat a little more and it did.  I’m just so floored that people are actually helping (donating or spreading the word), it really means a lot to me.

NEVER release a cat to the wild to “fend for itself.” Take it to a shelter!!!

Taking him to the shelter is a death sentence for him just as certainly as him being put outside. The whole reason I’m asking for help is to be able to get him healthy again so he can live out his golden years at home safe. If I can’t get help (Which I am getting thanks to some very super awesome and generous people) my dad will just toss both cats out, I’m doing everything I can to prevent that. I don’t want his cat to die alone outside or alone in a shelter because no one will adopt a cat his age.

okay, i’m remaking that post with omissions by request

The problem with demiromantic that I and many of my friends have […] is that literally demiromantic/demisexual boils down to:

“I am attracted to people who I can find attractive.”

And the thing is, when it boils down to it, demiromantic and demisexual are literally just describing every single person on the planet. This is why the rest of the world doesn’t want to listen, but the Ace community seems to really love them. I WAS a member of the ace community […], and I was openly ace while I met most of these people, so it isn’t acephobic. In fact most of them LIKE asexuality because to them it is the simplest damned concept of “some people, they aren’t into it.”

But demisexual is just. A sort of crutch. There’s nothing at all wrong with being asexual and finding people attractive, even sexually. It just means that you’re asexual and some people connect with you. I’ve known lesbians who married men they loved, and were not bisexual, just into the one guy, I’ve known straight men who ended up with guys for a bit and came back still straight it was just they loved one guy. The labels are not inclusive. Demisexual tries to claim they are.

Which if you want to ID that way, it’s fine. It just feels like demisexuals are saying they want to be treated differently for having what boils down to the same feelings everyone else has.

my original response:

okay, i’m tackling this publicly because i’m pretty angry right now and i’m sure there are other people who’ll have input here.

essentially, your message reads thus: “i think demi- orientations are total bullshit and that they’re special snowflakes who want a queer label to feel cool. but i mean i’m not saying that you shouldn’t identify as demi-something. i’m just saying that you shouldn’t.”

you’re invalidating an identity. no matter how you try to spin it, you’re invalidating someone’s identity and erasing their experiences, and that’s not okay.

it doesn’t matter whether 99% of the world has the same feelings – the point is that there’s a label for it, and that people feel comfortable identifying that way. i don’t care that most people out there experience romantic attraction only after a strong platonic attraction. i do care that i tend to feel this way.

i’m sorry, but i don’t know when it’s ever okay to tell someone who’s questioning their orientation not that they’re wrong for identifying as something.

and a response to that, edited to omit personal information:

I have two problems and SOLELY two with being called out. I like being called out. […]

1) The biggest problem with that post is I made it having read not that you were identifying that way, but because you mentioned in a post AFTER saying it that you were seriously considering it, and I honestly wanted to warn you that off of tumblr demisexual is being TAUGHT TO US as literally just describing everyone and it IS ace-erasure. This was a fault of my reading my dash backwards and I really apologise for hurting you, because I thought you were verging due to misinformation that has been passing through the non-internet Ace comms, […]

2) […]

Call me out. But do it attached to my name only, copy-paste my words, and please, leave. those. out. Put it all on me, […], just put that crap on me entirely.

i acknowledge that you’re trying to apologize, but you’re still saying that people who identify as demisexual/demiromantic are Wrong. maybe i’m misreading you, but everything you’ve said above points to “people shouldn’t identify as demisexual/demiromantic because that’s how most people are,” and that’s an incredibly hurtful sentiment for anyone who identifies as demisexual or demiromantic, or anyone, like me, who’s questioning. i also don’t understand how demisexuality is ace erasure, but if that’s how you feel, i’m not going to argue with you about that.

nothing you’ve said so far has sounded to me like anything but invalidating someone’s sexual or romantic orientation. my original posts weren’t even about demisexuality, so i’m not sure how that even ended up as a part of the discussion.

seriously, this is one of the most awful, hurtful things that anyone has said to me in a long time.

Dave isn’t here right now because she’s pretty scared but she does want to say she stands by this, she’d be willing to explain why, and that she doesn’t mean that people shouldn’t ID this way- she honestly thought people were trying to convince someone that this isn’t a community that’s being shown to be harmful outside of tumblr.

I honestly do think you’re misreading her here. Dave comes off as dickish pretty easily, because she’s blunt. She’s not saying it’s wrong to identify as demi in anyway, she was trying to say that she feels that some people are using demi as a way to erase the Ace community, because if you’re attracted to someone (people may thing/feel/believe) that you can’t be Ace. Which isn’t true.

Salty-Ass Tears

quicksparrows:

Tumblr ain’t too bad compared to some other sites, but the Last of Us wank about Ellie having a romantic arc with another girl and kissing another girl is making the rounds around the internet.

All these people coming up with every single excuse possible to explain how Ellie isn’t gay. You can see the desperation, the panic, the pathetic oh god not the gay oh no they must have it WRONG there MUST be an explanation other than GAY!! So many laughable attempts to explain it away, so many ludicrous suggestions. I mean, you fuckers never shipped Ellie with Sam before, but now that Riley’s in the picture, y’all are desperate to prove that she was into him. I guess now that a black queer girl is in the picture, a black boy ain’t so threatening by comparison.

But you know what?

They can keep on crying, because no amount of pitiful, sorry-ass homophobic tears is gonna change the fact that Ellie kissed another girl, the fact that Neil Druckmann specifically said the story was just about that turning point where they express their love for each other, the fact that one of the most popular teenage protagonists of a game that has gotten more Game of the Year awards than any other game in history, is gay gay gay gay gay.

Gay.

Left Behind was beautiful, emotive, heartfelt and so wonderfully knocked outta the park. I’ve had a permanent grin affixed to my face since I watched it merely because it’s been so long since I’ve seen media that made me feel so deeply and wonderfully connected.

So I’m enjoying your weak-kneed, gutless panic over a girl having romantic and non-platonic feelings for another girl and I look forward to seeing your shitty-ass ideologies die in the coming decades as this becomes more and more common.

No amount of sniveling and excuses and attempts to “absolve” Ellie of the queerness she so obviously embraces will change what is now canon. Your emotional distress over what I and many others find empowering is delicious.

Here’s a straw, suck it up and move the fuck along.
