I saw a tiktok talking about the massive shortage of feminine hygiene products in Gaza.
The only charity right now that seems to be helping with this shortage is called Motherbeing
Motherbeing is an organization based on education and providing assistance in healthcare for Arab women.
They recently donated 200,000 sanitary pads as women have been taking dangerous measures to delay their periods out of fear of toxic shock syndrome.
In case you are unaware, toxic shock syndrome is a possibly life threatening infections that develops from wearing a feminine hygiene product, usually tampons or cups, for too long.
They currently don’t have donations open, but people are trying to get them to. There’s products you can buy from their website, however.
This will get like three notes, but I just came across it and I wanted to post something. When something as serious as genocide happens, people forget little things like pads and tampons, which actually can be life threatening.
If you want to donate to charities similar to this one, here’s a few I found:
-Helping Women Period: provides pads and tampons to women (and people with uteruses) who are low income or homeless.
-The Pad Project: supplies low income women with pads all over the world.
-She Supply: provides pads and tampons for homeless women in Texas
-Free the Tampon: organization working towards making sanitary products free
-The Period Panty Project: takes physical donations of sanitary products as well as just donations for women in Ohio.
-Days for Girls: donated reusable pads to women all over the world.
There’s a lot more. This isn’t going to get notes lmao
so annoying when zombie media doesn't call them zombies. ppl were calling that dude that did bath salts and bit someone a zombie and it was just one guy and you're telling me ppl would see hoards of undead cannibals and go "omgg these guys are crazy..they're like freakers or something.."
i must be studying abroad the way i'm always lookin at women!!!!!!!!!!!!!
getting incredibly tired of westerners responding to firsthand accounts shared by palestinians in gaza with the reflexive demand to see a "source"
because by source, they always mean a western news report
never mind, of course, that international journalists are banned from entering gaza; the word of the western journalist, writing in passive voice about a genocide 6000 miles away, is still deemed more 'reliable' than the firsthand accounts shared by the victims living through that same genocide
a palestinian shares a video of an IOF solider brutalizing civilians in gaza? not good enough; they still need a ''source.'' the video in question was posted by a palestinian journalist? okay cool, but does someone have a more reliable source? can we get a word in from the esteemed fact-checkers over at the new york crimes, or the iraq-has-wmds-post? we just don't want to spread misinformation...
Hey PSA about that scary Discord post going around about the “Allow Contacts to Add Me” checkbox
Unless you press the “Add Friends” button below it (and haven’t already given Discord access to your contacts), Discord will not allow contacts to add you. This is why the checkbox will keep resetting to checked if you leave the tab.
Still a shitty feature, but unless you give Discord access to your contacts, you should be safe 👍 just shitty unintuitive UI
warning for discord users
If you're on the app, immediately go to your dms and then "add friends". After the latest update they allow your contacts to find you and have that option turned on by default, so make sure it's unchecked!
This is very obviously not great for a multitude of reasons, but especially for people in vulnerable positions who do not want people in their contacts to see who they are on discord and/or know they have discord in the first place. I've also tried finding out if this is a thing on desktop but haven't been able to find any mention of it, so either it's not a "feature" (yet) or they've hidden it. Either way, stay safe, and turn off finding friends via contacts!
[ID: three screenshots from the discord app with circles around the buttons to press to get to this "feature". 1: the messages/DM button, 2: the "add friends button", 3: in the add friends page, the "allow contacts to add me" checkbox. /END ID]
by the way your voice always matters in the fight against injustice. every single time you speak out against an injustice it matters. it sheds light on it. it empowers others to speak up. it matters
emergency comms to help us afford rent!
i am a disabled trans person and though i am working, it's at a college and work is paused during winter break. so i need to make up about $500 for january's rent! if youd like to support me without buying a commission, here is my ko-fi.
more info under cut
turn around time is a couple weeks for the full body, a week or two for bust, and less than a week for the Funny Cat Special. i will need reference images for these commissions and am not designing characters, but willing to discuss.
i have the most experience drawing fat characters but am totally willing to draw skinny characters as well!
if you are interested you can respond to this post, send me an ask, dm me, or message me on discord at @gayteddy. i accept payment through most popular money transfer services and payment is needed before i start drawing.
i will draw most things, including nsfw, gore, and furry. but if i am uncomfortable with a request, i will not take on the commission.
