My name is Rio, and I recently lost my job. After my dad passed away my anxiety and depression negatively impacted my work performance to the point where I was let go. Their reasoning for letting me go was that as I had broken a mirror (by accident at that), I had damaged company property, and after being suspended for 72 hours I was terminated.
I originally signed a promissory note to pay back the cost of the mirror ($75). Today I received a letter with a demand to pay an additional $300 for the cost of their ‘investigation’ (because according to them that’s how much it costs to review security footage of a mirror being knocked over). I called their lawyers along with corporate, and neither are willing to waive the fee.
I have no idea how to come up with the money for this. I barely have next month’s rent (which is over $400) in my bank account (and that’s not including utilities), and once that’s gone I won’t be able to live at my apartment. In turn, the rent will hike for my room mates and they’ll have to leave to.
The only place I have left to go is back to my grandmother’s house, and she’s verbally abusive. My mom and brother live there too, and they’re addicts on top of being abusive themselves. Unsurprisingly, none of them accept my identity.
If anyone could give so little as $5, or even just reblog this post, I would be appreciative beyond words.

there’s always that one really minor character in any fandom that one or two people are really into and they exclusively create a large amount of fanworks for them while everyone else just looks on in admiration
Bisexual community:We define bisexuality as attraction to people of the same gender and different genders.
Biphobes:Aaaaactually bisexuality means "attracted to men and women" because the prefix "bi" means "two".
Bisexual community:Okay, that's a really narrow and finicky way of examining things, but yes the prefix bi means two. Which means that bisexual people are attracted to two different gender groups. Like, for example, people of the same gender as them and people of a different gender than them. Which is what we said. Our definition of our own sexual orientation is still right even with your narrow and finicky standards applied to it.
Biphobes:Sorry, I didn't catch any of that. I have my entire head and neck firmly lodged up my own ass. Bi means two. Bisexual means
Wow, OK, I had kind of conceptualized that Joss Whedon post along the lines of “here are some random thoughts that I’m gonna store behind a cut in case a few people are interested,” not expecting so many people to reblog it. But since there was so much interest, I ended up thinking about it more. And the direction my thinking took me in was this: what is it that women find attractive in male and female characters, and to what extent does this match up with what men assume that women find attractive in these characters?
