Hey everyone. I just got this vulture in. Haven’t done an exam on him yet (waiting on an extra pair of hands) but it sounds like he was grounded in a neighborhood in Greenville for about 5 days. He will most likely require care from someone who knows more about vultures. The problem is, we cannot afford to transport this guy right now. We need help! Many of you know that we do this work voluntarily and pay for everything out of pocket. If you can, please consider donating to our rescue! This vulture really needs your help! You can donate any amount of money through Paypal, to the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org!
Help these vulture helpers!!!!
through lucid dreaming I decimate the limitations of actuality
capacity practically eternal, mortality external
no god but I investigate the blasphemous worship of the nocturnal
internally existing without morality creates profanities without the travesty
and compared to the apathy of realness I reveal my own insanity
the majesty of fantasy protects me from tragedy
normality’s effects project the agony of rationality
which thankfully penetrate with no avail to my unreality—
an elaborately designed privately owned spiral galaxy
financially I’m failing, naturally decaying
soon I’ll have no safe place to sleep if these bills still need paying
displaying cravings with open eyes for something mind-expanding
for when I drift away I see the totality of understanding
Optimism isn’t coming easy today.

Argentina: doing it right. After passing a groundbreaking gender identity law on Wednesday, Argentina, which became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage, now leads the entire world when it comes to trans rights.
The new law, which was passed by 55-0 and is expected to be signed by president Cristina Fernandez, grants trans people the right to legally change their gender identity without having to get approval from doctors or judges–and, importantly, without having to change their bodies at all first. Not having a valid ID that matches your gender identity is a huge barrier to access to education, employment, health care, you name it. As Kalym Sori, an Argentinian trans man said, “This is why the law of identity is so important. It opens the door to the rest of our rights.”

GoFundMe is allowing a campaign for people to donate money to Darren Wilson, the cop who killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO.
When called on this, and how it violates their ToS, GoFundMe’s response was to delete the hateful, disgusting, racist comments from the donations. They refused to end the campaign. Apparently it is only “promoting hate, violence, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime” if people can see the deplorable sentiments behind the donations. Somehow deleting the evidence of those sentiments magically changes what those donations are for: rewarding a police officer for killing Michael Brown.
This is absolutely a direct violation of GoFundMe’s ToS, yet GoFundMe is refusing to act. These are people giving money to an individual that gunned down an unarmed black teen. He is profiting from this killing, and it directly promotes racial intolerance and violence. There is no reason why GoFundMe should allow this campaign to continue…
… Except that GoFundMe gets 5% of the cut. In this case, 5% of 235k is $12,500. GoFundMe and Darren Wilson both are profiting off the killing of Michael Brown, and GoFundMe has decided they’d rather take their cut of the money than follow their own ToS. $12,500 is apparently what it takes to abandon justice.
Please, join in the boycott of GoFundMe, and consider signal boosting this.
Baby’s first tattoo! It’s from a drawing by my favorite cartoonist, Lynda Barry! She told me to do comics a couple of years ago at a pivotal time in my life. I credit her with my sense of artistic purpose and my general spiritual well-being. I love her and I love marlys and now this image is branded on my body forever, protecting me from scary thoughts and invisible demons.
P.s. Andrew Pannell got a brain booger tattoo. A tat, too!
