If you are uncomfortable with white afabs following you drop me a message and I'll unfollow you.
Help me stay alive? I'm currently in a pretty rough financial situation. I'm looking for work, but until I get anything, it's going to be incredibly tight. (Alternatively, message me for my paypal email).
I also have an eBay store, with all kinds of awesome things on it! Come have a look and see if anything takes your fancy!
I am Cyd.
I look like this.
My nsfw blog is cydisnotsafeforwork. I would link it but the link keeps fucking up.
Queer as fuck
They/them pronouns please.
Pretty much everything else is in 'the basics'.
I am white and afab so if I fuck up at checking my privilege and being inclusive, and if you are willing, do let me know.
This blog posts all kinds of things.
Ask box is always open. (x)ist comments will be called out and laughed at.
If you follow me and you have specific triggers that aren't commonly tagged, by all means let me know.
out of courtesy i’ve recorded my response to this message in voice clip form
okay, but really:
- "You want people like Cameron, Clegg or Miliband running the country?" … wait, okay, but who … who do you think runs the country. because. i mean. those people run the country. they already run the country. that’s… that’s what is currently happening. david cameron is currently the prime minister of the united kingdom. i’m not happy about it but that’s what’s going on. here is a handy link explaining what ‘prime minister’ means. i hope it is useful for you. i’ll wait while you read it. take your time.
- "You want an elitist self-involved minority standing as the sole controllers of Britain?" I DON’T KNOW WHAT BRITAIN YOU’RE LIVING IN, ANON, BUT [TAKES PHOTOGRAPH OF THE HOUSE OF COMMONS, PUSHES IT SLOWLY ACROSS THE TABLE TO YOU, POINTS SIGNIFICANTLY AT IT]
- "The Royal family acts as a barrier between the politicians and certain dictatorial laws." aw shit i forgot that every country without a monarchy is a dictatorship. guess you showed me lol (the monarch is politically neutral + practically politically impotent, the structure and legislation of government contains checks and balances on parliamentary power which are unrelated to whether or not there’s a monarchy, you need to read— well i was going to say "a book" but honestly "anything other than the daily mail" pretty much covers it)
- "Plus the money they rake back in tourism far outweighs the money lost in tax payers money." cite your fucking sources. the ‘facts’ trotted out most often about the monarchy being ~great for tourism~ come from a tourist authority group called visitbritain who calculated the amount spent by tourists on "culture and heritage" and then calculated that 1 in 8 heritage/culture sites is "related to the monarchy" — but in the case of their study that means anything from ‘anne boleyn lived in this national trust castle for a week’ to ‘this museum used to be a royal-owned stately home’. so that’s bullshit in and of itself AND THEN there’s the fact that, like — tourists are not going to stop going to the tower of london if there is no longer a monarchy in place in the united kingdom. tourists are not going to stop visiting buckingham palace if no one lives there any more. it’s not like people have stopped going to versailles because france doesn’t have a monarchy any more. most of the ~monarchy-related tourism attractions~ are based around the historic monarchy. unless you think sales of teatowels with the windsor crest or chintzy teacups with prince william’s face on are single-handedly going to save the british economy?
- " I’d rather have someone like Harry … standing for us"
i opppose the british monarchy (and ALL monarchies) irregardless of who the monarch is, because the identity and capability and personality and political views of the incumbent are irrelevant
i oppose the british monarchy because monarchies are inherently unethical and oppressive, and the fact that they have had power removed from them in recent years does not remove their function as colonialist oppressors because there is no such thing as a non-oppressive monarchy
BECAUSE. REPEAT AFTER ME. MONARCHIES ARE INHERENTLY OPPRESSIVE AS A CONDITION OF THEIR EXISTENCE.
If you’ve ever said that people shouldn’t have sex unless they’re willing to have kids or carry a pregnancy to term, now is the chance for you to put your money where your mouth is. I don’t to ever carry a pregnancy to term. I want to be sterilized. However, the NHS won’t do it so I’ll need to go private. The operation costs £1527 (incl. £75 deposit), and if I factor in travel costs, and food/hotel overnight, it’ll probably be ~£2000 all together.
I can pretty much guarantee that I’m not going to be celibate for the rest of my life so if any unexpected pregnancies do occur, I will be getting an abortion. Had my doctor listened to me when I was 18 and let me be sterilized, I would not have had an abortion when I was 19. I’m currently 22, and the women in my family hit the menopause around 50, generally. I sincerely doubt that in my next 25 years or so of fertility I won’t ever have an unplanned pregnancy again. Especially given my issues with contraception.
I am currently on hormonal birth control, which hey, if you believe that that’s immoral too because it stops fertilized eggs implanting, it’s all the more reason to get me sterilized. And even if you don’t, you should know that I’m coming off it soon. Hormonal birth control makes me ill. The latest one I have (the mirena coil) has made my skin incredibly bad and makes me have blood pressure dips every time I have a period. I am allergic to latex, and most latex free condoms have a lube on them that I react badly with too, so that’s barrier methods out. My doctor has said I cannot have the copper coil due to medication I’m on. So it’s getting to the point now where I either get sterilized, or I have nothing and use abortion as a back up.
So, if you honestly do want to do something more than clinic protesting or posting images on Tumblr, now is your chance. Pay for my surgery. The link to my gofundme can be found on my sidebar. If you’d rather do all the money direct to my bank account, message me for my paypal. If you don’t have the but you’d still like to contribute, run a fundraiser or go in with other anti-abortion people you know. Evidence of the cost of the surgery can be found here.
