NEED ROOM - OLYMPIA, WA

transhousingnetwork:

Hi, I’m a quiet 17 year old nonbinary bi trans girl, starting SPSCC at the end of September. 

I like to cook, and I usually keep to myself, but I enjoy company when it’s offered. 

I’m fairly flexible as far as the price is concerned, but it needs to be on major buslines and would preferably be somewhat close to SPSCC.  It would be better if there’s a bus every fifteen minutes or so.

I would like to keep small animals (rats), but that’s not a necessity. 

I don’t drink, don’t smoke, and don’t have any allergies to speak of, but I do have several mental disabilities, and would need understanding of that fact.

I’ve never moved out before, so someone willing to understand that fact and accommodate certain things would be great.

VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!!
We have a backer who gave to the $3000.00 tier. And while that is exciting and great for us, this is really important what she wants to do with her reward. She wishes to remain annoymous but this is what she wanted to say.

One in ten Americans has a disability. And yet one of the hardest things to deal with, being disabled or ill, is isolation. The people in your day to day life suddenly don’t understand, or maybe you can’t leave the house, to reach those that would. So you turn to the internet, and social media, where you can talk to people dealing with similar issues, and find a place for yourself.

Even in support groups, sometimes, it can be hard, because the only thing you have in common, the only thing you talk about, is illness.

I had an idea. I wanted to create a haven, a place where everyone could go, sick or not, able or not, and exist together. A place where people can gravitate together, and share similar interests, with no pressure. With no judgement, not a place just for us, but a place that we could be, and relax, together, and also with others. I saw Pumpkin Onlines Kickstarter, and I wanted to play the game immediately. The more I thought about it, the more I realized – maybe we could join forces, and bring my dream into Pumpkin Online, a perfect platform for us all to play and be together.

Thanks!”

Wait but that’s not all she also said this.

You have no idea how much this means to us. Personally I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. I am on the severe end of things and I am on bedrest 23 hours a day. It is hard for me to sit up for any length of time most days. So all of my social interaction is done on line. Most of the people I know aren’t in such an extreme place, but many are not far behind.”

Her village seed reward allows the backer to create their own village, with 4 NPC families with shops. As well as be a producer with an active role in the game development. 

Her idea is to create an island in the game inspired by the Spoon Theory

The spoon theory was created by Christine Miserandino which explains to able-bodied people what it’s like to live with a chronic sickness of disability. You have to read the article in the link to understand.




SO GUYS if you read all that. We need to make this happen. Like we need to make this backer’s idea come alive because her tier makes her apart of our team now. If we can make our goal she can create this place in our game. The team is already discussing ideas and concepts for this place in our game map that will created by her. And will also bring awareness in our game for chronic illness. 


So ONCE AGAIN. We have 2 weeks left in our Kickstarter. If you want this happen any kind of amount would help push us further. We’re so close. We can do this. The teams is ready and willing to start working and go forward.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with 16 counts including first-degree rape and sexual battery after being accused of assaulting at least eight women while on patrol.

Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure. Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.

He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.

The next time I need to explain to people what evil is and how it works I’m just going to show them this fundraiser.

Charda Gregory abducted, humiliated, violated, restrained, scalped and tortured. 
If this were reversed, with black police officers who were sworn to uphold peace and justice but instead were documented victimizing a white woman (who was already a victim), this news would have trumped the Olympics!

Truncated version: drugged at a party, abducted to a motel, wakes up during unwanted sexual violation in a motel room full of strangers, fights like hell to escape, motel employee calls the authorities, she gets arrested for destroying motel property and it just gets worst from there.

Every officer who participated in it and even those who witnessed it and did nothing should be punished but instead they just fired the woman?
No rape kit, no police report on the people inside the motel room, no investigation of her claims, no accountability for missing motel entry records, no video from the motel but she gets detained for fourteen days?

(Btw, when did your tax dollars begin purchasing Abu Ghraib type water boarding chairs?)

GOP Politician Tweets That Transgender People Should Go To Concentration Camps

Todd Kincannon later conceded that, if concentration camps aren’t going to work, “mental institutions will do just fine”


Trust me, there’s more than just trans people he wants to see in camps, but this is what will give him the least backlash.

PASS THIS ON LIKE A JOINT AT A COLLEGE PARTY, FOLLOWERS. I WANT TO SEE THIS FUCKER FACE SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES FOR THIS DISGUSTING THING.
