Ebony Fund - Post-prison Living Expenses for a Black TWoC
My incarcerated penpal, Ebony Delaney, is entering the possibility of parole here shortly (July 2017) and I’m in a kind of panic to set up resources for her, as her sentence ran for another two years.
While I’m contacting lots of northern California transgender networks and support groups that may be able to help her, I’m also at the tail end of a major international move across the Atlantic and strapped on cash, which is what she will need most when leaving the all-male prison system she’s been trapped in for ten years now. And she’s got big plans for both prison and transgender activism and writing when she leaves the prison behind.
In short, I’d really like to make sure that Ebony Delaney, a black transgender woman who has b een through a special kind of hell, has the money for a roof over her head, food, new clothing, transportation, communication, parole fees and medical bills as she leaves the prison system and heads towards freedom and a future.
That amounts to about $3,000USD for starting a new life and one month’s worth of living expenses by July 2017.
To donate, click here.
My plan is to take all donations and funnel them into her official account that she’ll receive upon leaving the prison, as well as a possible cache of giftcards and such to get her started.
You’re welcome to register with JPAY to donate directly (Prisoner #J99209 in California, under her former legal name, Ishmael Delaney), but they do take hefty fees, and larger payments can consolidate them.
All help is appreciated, and please don’t donate if you feel even slightly uneasy about doing so for whatever reason.
Alternative options if you’d still like to help:
- If you have any leftover or unwanted gift cards you’d like to donate, please message me to discuss!
- Got a smartphone, phablet or tablet that’s in good working condition and you’re willing to donate? Let me know!
BIGGEST F AVOR:
- Do you, or someone you know, live in northern California (Sacramento), and may be willing to meet her at the prison when Ebony is released? Message me!!
“omg you can’t play video games on easy mode!!”
listen if i wanted to struggle with some dumb task and fail a dozen times for bullshit reasons only to get some underwhelming reward once i finally get it right i would just live my actual life and not play video games smh
pls love urself
Oh and if you want to play something like Dark Souls? Don’t feel bad for using guides or looking up walkthro ughs. I’ve done that to find specific items, or when something is so bullshit and obscure that I need help for it (I’m pretty damn good at it, too.)
And guess what? My experience didn’t diminish at all. If anything it helped me.
Use guides. Use cheats. Use item duplication glitches. Clip through the floor going 30 miles a second. Just have fun
If they were supposed to be boring and difficult, they’d be called video works

Anonymous asked: Just wanted to correct the record on one thing with third party candidates. Abe Lincoln was a third party candidate. That is all.
Well that’s definitely relevant in 2016
asked: marsha p johnson wasn't a transwoman, he was a gender non conforming gay man/drag queen, he even said (shortly before his death no less) 'i am a man' like you don't have to strip gay men (especially dead ones, which is incredibly insensitive) of their identities to make a point :/
Miss thing I know the tumblr feminists you hang around with get hyped up on kilos of sherm and bathsalts before they type into this putrid site and whatnot but I am not the one. Marsha was a pre-op transsexual and she wanted to transition, but due to poverty, the criminalization of prostitution, her deteriorating mental health, antiblackness, homophobia, and transmisogyny, she could not. Trans identity politics did not exist in the united states when she was alive as they exist today (because things evolve) and she described her transition in ways that would be considered controversial on tumblr dot com but they ought to be acknowledged. Interesting enough, tumblr feminists like your ilk and some trans activists here both have that refusal to acknowledge complex history in common. You people always want to de ny parts of her existence to fit your compartmentalized narratives. Trust me you’re not much better or different than your imagined enemies so jot that down.
Moving on, Marsha was a transsexual woman and she described her biological sex as being male (a trans person describing themselves in this way wasn’t considered as much of a controversial act back then as it is now). She called herself a woman and a man (referring to how she described her sex or lack of access to HORMONES AND SURGERY), and it is clear that her existence was one rife with transmisogynoir and hostility due to her engagement in prostitution so she could have money to support herself and to fund her transition, which, sadly, didn’t happen because of, in part, the very same sentiments expressed in this dumb ass message u sent me girl. She experienced violence in the same patterns as any other transsexual woman in prostitution. Read Viviane Namaste to learn more about how transsexual women speci fically are most at risk for violence that results in death when they engage in prostitution.
From Rapping with a Street Transvestite Revolutionary, an interview originally done by Bob Kohler on August 20, 1990, reprinted in Out of the Closets: Voices of Gay Liberation. Can be read in full here for free.
Kohler: When you hustle on 42nd Street, do they know you’re a transvestite, or do they think you’re a woman? Or does it depend?
Marsha: Some of them do and some of them don’t, because I tell them. I say, “It’s just like a grocery store; you either shop or you don’t shop.” Lots of times they tell me, “You’re not a woman!” I say, “I don’t know what I am if I’m not a woman.” They say, “Well, you’re not a woman.” They say “Let me see your cunt.” I say, “Honey, let me tell you something.” I say “You can either take it or leave it,” because, see, when I go out to hustle I don’t particularly care whether I get a date or not. If they take me, they got to take me as I want ‘em to take me. And if they want to go up my dress, I just charge them a little extra, and the price just goes up and up and up and up. And I always get all of my money in advance, that’s what a smart transvestite does. I don’t ever let them tell me, “I’ll pay you after the job is done.” I say I want it in advance. Because no woman gets paid after their job is done. If you’re smart, you get the money first.
Kohler: What about the term “drag queen?” People in STAR prefer to use the term “transvestite.” Can you explain the difference?
Marsha: A drag queen is one that usually goes to a ball, and that’s the only time she gets dressed up. Transvestites live in drag. A transsexual spends most of her life in drag. I never come out of drag to go anywhere. Everywhere I go I get all dressed up. A transvestite is still like a boy, very manly looking, a feminine boy. You wear drag here and there. When you’re a transsexual, you have hormone treatments and you’re on your way to a sex change, and you never come out of female clothes.
Kohler: You’d be considered a pre-operative transsexual then? You don’t know when you’d be able to go through the sex change?
Marsha: Oh, most likely this year. I’m planning to go to Sweden. I’m working very hard to go.
Kohler: It’s cheaper there than it is at Johns Hopkins?
Marsha: It’s $300 for a change, but you’ve got to stay there a year.
She wanted to transition. She planned to transition. She was a pre-op transsexual woman and a drag performer. Tryda disrespect a dead black woman in my inbox again girl and I implore you not to come for me if you glean all of your politics off your dashboard and sleazy wordpress blogs.
