Today my hometown was struck by a disgusting hardship.

A woman this afternoon was found by a neighbor, bleeding and naked. She was attacked in her home because she was gay. Two or more men broke into her home through the basement and proceeded to tag her basement. They found the homeowner, who is an open lesbian, and stabbed, assaulted, and carved “dyke” into her chest. They attempted to burn her house to the ground, but the gas only sparked. Somehow, this woman (who remains anonymous until she decides to come out on her own time) was able to escape. She was found naked, bound with zip ties, and bloody. She is still alive and in the hospital. A candle light vigil was held in her name tonight, where more than 500 people from Lincoln and surrounding cities and states joined to talk about the hate and to pay homage to the victim.

A recovery fund has been set up to help her cover medical bills and anything she may need. That link can be found here, along with a link from the original news story.

Crying.


Why doesn’t this get a full day of news coverage and nationwide outrage?

I know someone who lives just blocks away with her partner. They are terrified. It’s sickening.

To the anon who claimed mocking a T-shirt in support of Joe Paterno is a hate crime: No. THIS is a hate crime.

Absolutely, utterly horrifying.

Why the FUCK isn’t this on the news. I just watched the news for like two hours, no mention of this. What the fuck.

My poodle, Sophie, had an accident earlier this week in which she broke her foot. According to our vet, our only options are to have her leg amputated or to put her to sleep. The surgery will be at lease $2500. Please, donate anything you can to her fund. I know money is tight for everybody, but please at least reblog to support Sophie.

trinidad and tobago’s women’s soccer team is trying to qualify for the women’s world cup for the first time in their program’s history and they seriously arrived in the US with no funding, no equipment, nothing. they almost weren’t able to get their visas

if you live around Dallas i’m sure they would be eternally grateful for any food or money, as you can see from the tweets their coach isn’t even sure if they’re going to be able to eat

his email address is rwaldrum@houstondynamo.com

coach waldrum now has a paypal account set up for people to donate directly to the team

My Son Shahram Ahmadi has been sentenced to death. He is 26 years old and has spent the last 6 years of his life in prison. I couldn’t stop the execution of his younger brother Bahram and had a heart attack when I heard the news. The Iranian government refuses to hand over Bahram’s body. Now I need your help to stop Shahram’s execution.

Bahram is on the right and Shahram is on the left in the picture above. 
We are Sunni and Kurd. My son Shahram like many other Sunni youths has been critical of how badly the Iranian government treats the Sunni minority. Security police arrested him in April 2009 on his way home from mosque in our town, Sanandaj. They shot, beat, and kicked my son in the face, breaking his nose and head. They took him to the Intelligence Bureau of Sanandaj and subjected him to severe torture including electric shocks and forced him to falsely confess to armed resistance. It took the authorities 10 months before they allowed us to see him.
My son’s trial was unfair. The authorities kept him in detention for 4 years before charging him. The first time they allowed him to talk to his attorney was on the day of his trial. His trial lasted less than 10 minutes. Judge Mohammad Moghiseh used his coerced confession, the only evidence against him, to declare him a mohareb (enemy of God). I have no doubt that my son would have been found innocent if he had received a fair trial.
Your support could save my son. In the past international pressure has been instrumental in protecting individuals who had been unfairly prosecuted in Iran. A recent example is Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani who in 2006 was sentenced to stoning. Due to international pressure her sentence was later reduced to 10 years in prison and in March of this year, the Iranian judiciary announced that she has been released.
Shahram is not the only one at risk. Dozens of other Kurds have been unfairly sentenced to death. Please help me save my son and the other Kurds’ lives by asking Iranian officials to halt their executions and grant them fair trials.
Sign the petition. Pass it on.

Help Me Get A Wheelchair

clotheslinegoonbag:

Hey guys, just a reminder my bae Kitty is only a couple hundred bucks away from being able to get an electric wheelchair and therefor be able to leave the house without relying on others. If you cant personally donate (because let’s face it all of us are povo lol), sharing would be amazing, anything that could possibly help my friend regain some of her mobility. We’d all be incredibly grateful.

SIGNAL BOOST - HELP MOHAWK
WARNING - GRAPHIC
From octopussiour
Please help me out
Hey guys so here is this situation right now 

I’ve had rough past two months with money. I’ve been sick with the flu for two weeks, before that I was sick with bronchitis so I lost a lot of time at work. When I finally get back to work, I end up losing my job that day. I was given a very meager paycheck of $150 to make it by. Mohawk needed vet care for a toe that was lost in an unknown, freak accident in the middle of the night.  Mohawk only has three legs as it is, and the toe that came off was on his only back leg. The vet cost me $140 dollars today, and he has a recheck in a few days. If it doesn’t heal then we will have to do surgery to fix the toe. I tried to pay only half the bill but since I had never been to this vet, they wouldn’t let me walk out without paying it. I now have $8 until I get a new job, not including normal bills, Mohawk’s upcoming vet bills, and my own medical bills. I’m struggling and worried I won’t make ends meet. Any help is very appreciated.

Hi there! I’m sure a lot of you have heard of me, but I’ve come with yet another request!
I live in Minnesota, and my parents have disowned me. I have a job, but most of the money has to go to rent and food, so there won’t be much left over. 
However, I’m Trans, and mentally disabled, and I need a name change just for my own good. I can’t be the person people keep calling me, I need to become Rabbie—legally.
However… it’s a hefty price. It’s around $200 USD, so I’m turning to you, tumblr.
I have a donate button on my blog for ease of access, and I also do art (you can look at my rabbiedraws tag HERE) and I will draw for you!
If there is any way you can spread this around, I would totally be 100% thankful to you. Thank you everyone!
