Transition crowdfund fundraiser, PLEASE boost!! (update 6th January)
Summary: Hi I'm Julia, an autistic mentally ill trans woman in poverty from the UK who is long-term unemployed, living with my partner who is also a long-term unemployed trans girl. Since my dysphoria is making it really hard to cope and I need the hope of something to help out, I've set up a fundraiser to pay for private medical transition costs. PLEASE help me out if you can, I don't want to keep putting off my transition and being the person I want to be for longer, already at 29, the dysphoria and anxiety of it seriously affects my mental health.
Goal Progress: £678.43/£6700
Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who donated over the holiday period, your generosity is honestly overwhelming! 💖💖💖 I can now afford 2 clinic appointments at least, and will be arranging one shortly. But I still have a long way to get to my goal, so please keep reblogging and donate if you can!
If you're able to, please donate, any amount at all helps, if not able to please don't worry about it, I know many of us are struggling, but please boost to spread around, it helps immeasurably!
Also if you are on Tumblr could you boost my post there too please? (if the link below does not work I have probably changed my Tumbr url, you can @ me to ask for the new one)

re: Name change uk
@Ivafakename oh no, i was informed all u needed was your witness(es) to be someone who knows you well, no particular restrictions. I chose my therapist who I'd been with for about 2 years ish bc she was the only person irl i was out to at the time lmao. they say IDEALLY you should have 2 witnesses but 1 is often fine, just if they MIGHT get pissy about it and not believe you (FTR i only needed 1 for mine which was accepted by both my bank (Nationwide) and passport application).
But yeah that thing about having to pay money to get it enrolled at the courts..... thats a load of shit, I never needed to do that. I just went on this handy website to print off a standard form of the details:
If someone tells you you need to pay for a deedpoll (other than the cost of printing it out) they're lying or trying to sell you something. it's just a standard legal document, as long as it has the legalese in it it's valid. That's why the website above is the best to use and one I've seen recommended for trans ppl, it's simple and doesn't charge just to let u save a damn PDF lol
btw if you need it here is the cracked version of Spotify Premium for android
no that wont do actually
oh wait i thought of one
federating abuse (quick, slapdash post about fediverse instance moderation)
A pattern we've seen start a couple times:
- user A on a moderated instance makes post;
- user B on a not-explicitly-bigoted-but-anti-defederation instance replies and/or boosts;
- nazis and terfs and the like on evil instances that B's instance refuses to defederate from dogpile on user A.
Robust defederation policies aren't just about protecting an instance's own users; they protect everyone those users interact with.
