Hi guys, my name is Kelsey Snowdon! This is an original song that I wrote and recorded. It would mean the world if you could listen to it, and reblog it if you like it!

Thank you so much!

Note: This is a fleshed-out (think what’s called the “studio”) version of the acoustic video that all her fans/subscribers already know and love.

Cheap $15 binding. This is a power core compression bra by C9 at target. I am a B cup but my roomie who is a D cup uses is too and it works ok for him

My name is Alexander O’Brien. I am the OP [source] in this post. If everyone who reblogged the original post donated just 1 dollar I could afford my top surgery. Over 7 thousand people reblogged that post… my surgery only costs $6000 plus travel/medicine/cost of living.

I am trying to save up money for surgery on my own to get my chest reconstructed to reflect a male chest but it is slow going.. I do work full time at Lowe’s and put away all the money that I can. In addition I plan to save most if not all of next year’s tax returns so that should add close to $1000. I just could use a little help.

I do want to get surgery sooner rather then later for one big reason, otherwise I could wait. My fiancee and I want to get married. For our own protection we would like to get married once I am legally male so we can get a marriage that is legally recognized in all 50 states and by the federal government. And to become legally male I need an “irreversible” surgery. So please, if you could, consider donating to help support my savings goal! :) We would be eternally grateful to any and all contributions to our goal.

**NOTE: Should I happen to exceed my goal for top surgery I promise to donate the surplus to another guy (or guys) in need of surgery. Regardless of if I exceed my goal, I plan to pay it forward and donate to guys once I am post op. **

Please consider liking my Facebook Page and giving it a share as well. :D  

*If gofundme does not work for you, I also have paypal set up at thelittledalekthatcould@gmail.com

PROGRESS SO FAR: I have $1589 out of $6000. so roughly 26% of my goal. 

This is the lovely couple you will be supporting. We have been together a total of 4 years and have know each other for 10+ years. She makes me incredibly happy and I can not wait to hold her hand as we pledge to each other and to our families that we will do right be each other for the rest of our lives.

Then here is us after spending hours finishing this puzzle together. :D

i never thought i’d get to understand

A reaction piece to Nina (because your URL changes all the time)’s poem titled “Gentrification.”

I don’t know if this actually contributes to the problem or what.

-

i never thought that i would understand
the creeping whiteness, insidious
in its obliviousness, choking out
the flavor, the color, the variety of
what was never quite perfect
but what was certainly better than anything i’ve seen since

i grew up in a Greek neighborhood
with brown faces
(overall, it’s the brown faces I remember):
Bangladeshi contemporaries
one, two, three;
Muslim after Muslim,
Hussain, Yousaf, Mustafa;
a classmate in third grade who participated in Ramadan;
a girl named Ronjini who was partnered with me for one science fair project, and who certainly treated me better than did
the white Queen Bee bitches of our graduating class
(they ruled the roost, and kept the likes of sweet mild Ronjini in line, but my gay Anglo-Saxon-Italian friend assured me years later that they had indeed been bitches, my memory had not played me false);
a man I grew up seeing, an employee of Dunkin’ Donuts who
(unlike any other I’ve ever encountered)
was always friendly and talkative with my brother and me, shy as we were of practically all adults not our parents
(my mom tells me now that in Spanish, what we were/are is corridos);
a girl named Princie, the closest approximation to a friend that I had at that age, who didn’t even recognize me when we came across each other years later.

i never thought i’d get a chance to understand,
when we moved to the Bronx
and I felt white for the first time in my life
and I was made to feel
and explicitly told
that
I wasn’t Latína, for all the Ecuadorian blood running through my veins
(75%; 25% from the south of Spain).

I never thought I’d get the chance
to feel like my own community was being whitewashed,
gentrified, bohemianized, victim of the great Aburguesamiento,
until several months ago,
the last time we visited Ditmars Blvd. ($13 round trip) for paella marinera con una jarra de sangría roja and a quick stop at the Top Tomato, whose prices
(even after renovation)
are still better than those of our neighborhood Fine Fare,
and all of us but my mother went inside to look for something,
and she stayed by the produce and watched passers-by
until I came back out and she told me that
yes, there were more white faces than she remembered.

my mother only has one specific anecdote
(though it must have been the common presumption of anyone and everyone who saw her ferrying us around)
of someone (a grown Latína, una niñera) actually asking her if she was my brother’s nanny
and her proudly responding that he was her son!

ever since we were kids,
my brother and I said
several times
that we wanted to have
the golden-brown skin tone of our mother.
we still do.

I don’t know if there’s an ideal woman [for me], ‘cause it’s all about a feeling, right? You know, it’s just like movies. I might say, “I want to do this movie,” and then this comes along, and I’m like, “Well, I wouldn’t have thought it would be a dude, but ok!”

My mom’s got the History Channel en Español on and it’s really surreal

Hearing the doblaje over the original English that hasn’t been muted

Though I think the worst part is actually understanding how bad the translations are

(The same thing happened when I watched this interview Thiddles did in as much Spanish as he could [which was a fair amount] where the host took it upon himself to translate what the man was saying, and ohmygosh he kept doing it wrong; THE TRANSLATION FOR FIERCE IS NOT FUERTE, IT’S FEROZ

I suppose it shouldn’t have have surprised me, because it’s Univision, BUT STILL)

"You can’t just change the race of cultural icons like Captain America! It’s an important part of their identity and message!"

Jesus [Yeshua of Nazareth]: Ah yes.

Jesus: Can’t imagine who would do that.

Jesus: What a shame.
