Liam’s response to selling the first copy of his first zine:
Me: Oh Liam, someone bought your zine!
Liam: What?! Now I won’t have it anymore?!
Me: Oh, no Liam. We’re just going to send them a copy of it. 
Liam: But then they’ll have it and not me?
Me: No baby, we made a bunch of copies of it to share with other people, and you get to keep the original one that you made. Understand?
Liam: Okay. What was their name?
Me: The person that bought your zine?
Liam: Yes. 
Me: Ashley.
Liam: Ashley? Where do they live?
Me: Idaho.
Liam: Oh. What is her Dad’s name?
Me: I don’t know. 
Liam: What is the name of the other guy?
Me: The other person that bought your zine?
Liam: Yes.
Me: Well, no one else has bought one yet. 
Liam: WHAT?! But this is my whole world! It’s my whole country! It’s everything I can see!
Me: Well don’t worry, I’m sure someone else will buy a copy tomorrow. So how about this: Every time you sell a zine, I will give you $2. And you can do whatever you want with that money. Okay?
Liam: I am going to buy chocolate. And spinach. And then I will have chocolate spinach. You’ve never tasted anything like that before! It’s like … It’s like oregano water with salt! It’s so good!
Me: Well, that sounds interesting. So, you’re sure you’re okay with us sending out copies of your zine if you get to keep the original one that you made?
Liam: Yes. What does R2D2 talk like? Can you make that sound for me?

And there you have it! Liam’s zine, Big Diamond, is now available at the Pioneers Press website. Full disclosure: If you buy a copy, he will use the money to make chocolate spinach.

So. I had no idea about this app until I went into my doctor and he told me about it. 
LISTEN UP. THIS APP. THIS SHIT RIGHT HERE IS SERIOUSLY A BLESSING. ESPECIALLY TO ANYONE WITH FINANCIAL PROBLEMS (which is kind of everyone now). THIS IS NOT INSURANCE THOUGH. BUT IT WILL HELP YOU OUT. DOWNLOAD THIS APP RIGHT NOW. NO. STOP READING. DOWNLOAD IT. 
This app allows you to input the prescription you have, select your dose, and then find a place near you (or your own pharmacy) with the cheapest price. Then you click “get code/coupon/discount card,” show that to the pharmacist, and THERE YOU GO. SAVING YOU SOME CASH TO GET YOURSELF A WELL DESERVED DRINK, CANDY BAR, DATE MONEY, SEX TOY CASH, OR GO BUY YOURSELF A HAMSTER AND NAME HIM STARLORD WITH THE EXTRA MONEY. 
No, but in all seriousness. This app is saving my ass right now. 
I’m Trans* and have Fibromyalgia, and this is really making a difference already. I hope this helps out other people. We all know it fucking sucks to have to pay this much for the medication we need to function in life. 

this really helped me out when i didn’t have insurance. like, being able to spend only $8 on meds that normally would’ve cost me $100+ is incredible.

Is it Safe to Use my Sex Toy When I’m Pregnant?

"

After she came up to me and said, “I’ve been with my partner for 20 years… We would never get married because he’s on social security income, and because my daughter is disabled I have secondary income from the state to support my daughter. If I got married, both my benefits and his benefits would be reduced because we would become a double income family.”

She was explaining that marriage doesn’t work for poor people, and that it doesn’t work for disabled people. Having really simple examples like hers are important.

"

What if the LGBTQ movement fought for prison abolition rather than same-sex marriage? (via disabilityhistory)

this is important. for a lot of low income folks on government benefits, marriage is against their financial self-interest. trying to put a dollar amount of the symbolic value of marriage is hard.

""Women are the niggers of gender," the email said. "If you killed yourself, I wouldn’t even fuck the corpse."

I blinked at my phone, fighting simultaneous urges to hurl my phone across the room in anger and cry. Later that day, someone texted me my address — telling me they’d “See me when I least expected it.”

I haven’t been out to my car at night by myself since January 2nd.
