Hello, I'm a supposedly non-binary person, as I do not feel entirely comfortable being thought of as female. What I'm afraid of, is that I'm actually channeling my unhappiness with gender-inequality, and thus declaring myself non-binary when I am not. In a way I do definitely identify more with the female than the male, but still feel somehow unhappy as "female". I do wear a binder on occasion, because I like how I look that way. I just feel bad all the time.

Look, this is a tough thing and I can’t tell you what you identity is or should be.

The best advice I can give you is this—it doesn’t matter what you really are. I don’t believe gender is necessarily innate or immutable.

Identify as the thing that is most useful to you, and remember that this can change at any time. Try things on and see what fits. If nonbinary person is more useful to you than unconventional woman as an identity category, run with that.

Hi! I’m Rabbie, I look like above ^. I’m 21, I go to college, and I’m in a tight situation.

The amount of money I get per week is not enough to cover my utilities or my medication. I’m hoping to get help up to ~$200 a month while I work hard to get a job! In addition…

i havent posted about the tiny house project in a bit because stuff has been kinda hectic here. for those of you who don’t know, a bunch of my friends and i who are too sick to work and have been left to drown in chronic poverty were living together and collectively coping to help each other out. and because we didnt have anywhere else to go. unsurprisingly, this housing situation also fell apart, as it tends to, and we’ve been dispersed.

for the time being, everyone else has found somewhere safe to go, except for me. I have about two months to figure out if there’s anyone else on earth who’ll have me, inability to contribute income and all - or to get the tiny houses thing going, and fast. i know way too many of you are familiar with this situation of finally being left with no options, and honestly, most of my friends are also experiencing this outside of this particular group.

put simply, i’m goddamn sick of watching people get sicker and more homeless and die because of completely needless poverty created by artificially withholding the necessities of life to motivate people to work at jobs that don’t even exist. 

my friends and i propose at least one (hopefully more) tiny community of microhomes for chronically ill, disabled, mentally ill, and autistic LGBTQIA++ folk like us who can’t escape the cycle of poverty on their own, where we could all live rent-free in a supportive community that shares resources (like food, internet access, money and so forth) off-the-grid. there’s a lot of other facets to it but that’s the tl;dr version. we need each other.

since there are so many people that need this right now, i’m just going to keep pestering you all about it. we cannot do this alone, we need help to make that happen. and frankly, i’m not doing so hot with all these posts i’ve made. I’ve got 400 followers (and i love all of u) but i know its less than most of the people I’m following so uh seriously throw me a bone here and at least reblog this?

right now, we mostly need help brainstorming & getting more solid price estimates so that we can pitch this as a fundraiser, and also potentially pitching it to existing organizations that work with homeless LGBT / chronically ill people. believe it or not, there ARE people who want to fund things like this! They just probably want to know how much it’s going to cost! And also probably don’t know that we’re out here looking for someone to help us!!

this is the most recent tiny house design i’ve been looking at; not all of them would be this size or shape, and we may in fact not settle on a design like this at all. if you need some different visuals, you can check out the pinterest board we’re keeping to draw inspiration from, or earthship.com, which we’d like to model heavily off of.

if you want to see this happen and are interested in helping out please come get in contact with me (here on tumblr). We have a group skype chat I can invite you to as well as a forum where we’ll be posting all of the info and resources we’re using as we collect it, for anyone who wants to lurk politely, or use this to their own benefit anywhere. We do NOT intend to EVER collect profit on this or seek “ownership” of any of it.

We desperately need help doing this, and if nothing else, please signal boost or pass this on to anyone, anywhere,  who might be interested in helping out or passing it along as well. 

To my followers: im going to queue this to post every few hours, and if it bothers you, then fuck off, because seriously my time is running out. i get sicker by the day and i’m not kidding when i say i have nowhere to go.

Please help my family

Tumblr for Trans Jews

transjewry:

Shalom, let me take a moment to introduce TransJewry — the TL;DR? A blog whose primary aim is transgender and non-binary Jews of all backgrounds, which posts resources and materials that are otherwise extremely difficult to find as a small community.

I talk more about myself and the blog here, but feel free to ask questions or share resources. I would love for this to be shared, so that this becomes an active and easily accessible resource for those who need it!

Hello, my name is Adele, or Kat, the latter is more of a nickname. I’m a 21 year old trans girl who also happens to be a type 1 diabetic without insurance. What is diabetes, you may ask? Diabetes is a condition that infects the pancreas that hinders/disables it from producing insulin, therefore, I have to use insulin before meals and before bedtime or else I could go into ketoacidosis, where the body experiences high a blood sugar for too long, and basic body functions begin to fail, or I could fall into a coma if my blood sugar is too low for too long. I’ve been hospitalized twice for ketoacidosis, since I was diagnosed at 15 years old, and prolonged exposure to high blood sugar can effect the body in many harmful ways, like the loss of hands or feet, kidneys shutting down, loss of vision, etc. In case you didn’t know, insulin is a very expensive, novolog, for example, is over $450 for a single vial, and lantus being around $400 a vial. I currently live with my mother and brother which helps some of the financial strain, as well as having some insulin still left over from when I had insurance, but it won’t last forever, and what I aim to accomplish with this is to save up enough money for me to be able to buy it when it does run out, so I’m starting this a little early. If anyone sees the Amazon gift card post, don’t reblog it, as I would prefer donations being put into my PayPal/bank account which both are now set up.
If you would like to donate to me to help me financially, you can donate to my PayPal by going to my blog and clicking the “donate” link, or just click here, or you can send it to megucagirl@gmail.com from PayPal itself. Even if you can only spare $1, it would help in the long to help me to afford my own insulin or to help me afford insurance which I have been denied help from the government already, and looking into private insurances. 
Please! Even if you can’t afford it, reblog and signal boost, This is very important. 
Edit: I have since been informed that there are cheaper alternatives to buying insulin, but I will have to consult with my endocrinologist further about these means, and I was only basing my research I did on a few different online sellers and from my receipts I got when I still had insurance. Even at it’s cheapest, I’ve been told, could amount to around $150 - $250 per vial, which is still expensive, considering how this is a monthly cost that I will need insulin for the rest of my life.
Again, I ask you to please consider donating. I’ve gotten off to a good start and it’s helping me feel more relieved as I’m searching to get insurance, even a $1 will help me in the long run, and if you cannot donate, then please signal boost.
Thank you, and have a good day.

I think I might be nb but I'm not sure. Is there anyway to know for certain/a common experience or feeling shared by nb people, that could help me figure it out?

Yes. That common experience is not identifying as the singular binary static gender you were assigned at birth.

I would try some different identities on for size if I were you

You can see a bunch of examples at askanonbinary.tumblr.com/glossary

Keep in mind that this list is not by any means exhaustive
