xenogendr:

pre-orders for the first ever book by narcissus gayhart & pals are here

hi there! 

i’m narcissus, a twenty-one year old psychotic agender poet. recently i’ve had to drop out of school as my psychosis gets worse and worse, and as of right now, i have very few funds to get me through the next few months.

as such, i wrote and collaborated with nico newport and friday gayhart, my partner, to make my first book: dis(ease of mind).

dis(ease of mind) is a poetry book containing ~15 poems (a few broken up into parts and the like) about mental illness, queerness, science vs magic, broken families, and love and peace in general.

it contains works from the past 2 years that i’ve written, designed in a typographic fashion by my amazing partner, who is also a struggling psychotic person.

this book is only $15—each person who had a hand in this will receive five of that, and with the preorder, you receive the poem sample above and fourteen other poems crafted lovingly by me and friday, and an absolutely stunning piece of artwork for the cover by nico newport.

please, please consider buying… it would help us all SO, SO MUCH! we are three psychotic kids struggling to make it, and we want to share our work and our lives and our art with you. 

please reblog and spread!

if you preorder today, you will guaranteed get the entire book, in all of its beauty and chaos, by tuesday, september 23rd.

again, it is $15, sent to bffsy@live.com! thank you so much for reading and boosting!

(final warning: this book does contain themes of medication, suicide, disordered eating, alcohol usage, and a few other intense themes you’d expect from a book on mental illness; please exercise caution if these things trigger you!)

my new comic, Quick$ilver, is live!!!
Read the 13-page intro from the beginning *HERE*!
(it’s also on tapastic!)
I suppose it’s also worth mentioning that I’m going to be at SPX next weekend with, among other things, mini volumes of this comic, at table B-13!

I hope you all enjoy reading about the disastrous life & times of my precious angel <3 <3

((GENERAL WARNING! this comic contains, and will continue to contain, mature content, including violence, language, sexual content and alcohol. Nothing that I would consider quite 18+, but I figured I’d put it out there just in case.))

 So, as many of the people who reblogged my post about that fic on AO3 might know, AO3 got back to us.

Thanks for your report about improper tagging of content on AO3. The posting in question, “Mistake” has been found to be acceptable under AO3 guidelines.

AO3 has decided that they don’t need to take any action. There’s nothing wrong with this work, according to them
I’ve been using AO3 for, according to my profile, a little more than three years. I’ve uploaded full 67 fics. And I figured I’d keep using them, because it was a great, free, open way to get my fic out there.
I didn’t realize that I mattered so little to them.
This is AO3 saying, ‘#rape victims and trans people do not matter to us.’ This is AO3 saying, ‘it’s your fault for reading it.’ This is AO3 saying, ‘nevermind that enough people were appalled at this fic for daring to be published that it has 22 angry comments, nevermind that we received who knows how many abuse reports about this story, nevermind how many people it’s triggered and horrified, we don’t care.’
This is AO3 looking at a fic that is an intentional and direct attack on trans authors and saying ‘no, this is harmless.’ 
There are 23 works in the JJBA tag that are marked ‘trans character.’ There are 8 authors who have written these. Of those 8, I’ve written the most, with some of my dearest friends coming second and third. Do you know what I’m saying, when I’m looking at this fic? 
I’m saying, ‘What I just read is a direct threat against me and against other trans people, especially trans women — a threat of #rape and violence and hatred — and you don’t care.”
I’m going to stop using AO3 for at least the time being if not forever. I’m not sure yet if I’m going to take all my fic off, but I’m seriously considering it. 
Transcript of the email below the cut.

Today in Solidarity: Protesters gather in Oakland against the Urban Shield conference and police militarization

Ever wonder where cities get all their fancy ideas on how to militarize their police force? It’s not just from the Pentagon— it’s conferences like Urban Shield, that highlight the latest in tactical equipment and practices for suppressing the very people you’re sworn to serve. #staywoke #whodoyouprotect #whodoyouserve

Sgt. Thomas McVicar of the Jersey City Police Department shot 22 year old Kwadir Felton, leaving him blind, after Kwadir pulled a gun on him, he claims. Kwadir Felton denied the accusation, stating that he doesn’t even carry guns.

"I don’t understand!" Felton yelled at a police officer before his mother was removed from the courtroom. "You didn’t have to shoot me in the head for no reason! You trying to charge me with something I didn’t do!"

idonttakemycontactsout said: i appreciate your concern, but at my college we interact a great deal with autism speaks and support it. you shouldn't focus on what they're doing wrong, because none of it is terrible, but focus on what they are trying to do for people with all different levels of autism.

autisticfandomthings:

Things you apparently don’t consider terrible:

Posting a video of a mother talking about how she wanted to kill her child while that same child  was in the room listening. 

Supporting the eugenic abortion of autistic people.

Failing to condemn the murders of autistic children.

Supporting the Judge Rotenburg Center, which according the the UN, tortures autistic people.

It is terrible, only 3% of their budget goes towards services, there are no autistic people on their board, they literally support eugenics. They are doing absolutely nothing good. 

This is widely know withing the autistic community and they are pretty universally hated by autistic people. Because they are terrible. They only even bother pretending to care about little white boys.

Read that link. Read it.

And here is the resignation letter of the sole autistic person they had in an important (but still non board) position

http://jerobison.blogspot.ca/2013/11/i-resign-my-roles-at-autism-speaks.html

Here’s a flyer by a major autism advocacy organisation on them

https://autisticadvocacy.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Autism_Speaks_Flyer.pdf

OR, if you still don’t give a fuck about what autistic people think or want, (which seems kind of obvious from the content of this ask) here are some links written by non autistic people.

Here’s a post from the CEO of one of the oldest charities in the US for intellectually and developmentally disabled people. 

http://blog.thearc.org/2013/11/16/open-letter-suzanne-wright-co-founder-autism-speaks/


Here’s a post from a major autism parenting magazine

http://www.autismparentingmagazine.com/issue-14-asd-options-living-independently/#.U_-CfPldWMM


And here are some other posts

http://smallbutkindamighty.com/2013/04/02/why-i-dont-support-autism-speaks-which-is-why-i-dont-light-it-up-blue/

http://emmashopebook.com/2013/11/13/whats-wrong-with-autism-speaks/

If you continue to support them now you are in possession of this information, then it is clear that you are not an ally to autistic people, you don’t want to help us, and are probably just doing your charity work for “oh look at me, I’m a good person” points.

If you support autism speaks, you are not supporting autistic people, you are hurting us. And you are doing it knowingly and consciously.

Please spread this, not enough people know.
