This is my brother, Alastair. He is an aspiring musician and photographer, an excellent cosplayer, and an overall nice person to be around. He recently told our mother that he is transgender and wants to start transitioning soon with the help of hormone therapy. He has already set up an appointment in August to get his first 3 month supply of testosterone. Our mother is completely against testosterone and refuses to call Alastair by his preferred name and pronouns. As soon as he starts taking testosterone in August, she is kicking him out of the house, no questions asked.
This past week has been extremely upsetting for both my brother and I. Our mother is being very controlling. She will not allow us to see certain friends and believes all of our friends are toxic, when in fact they have been very supportive. She believes Alastair is going through a phase, but this is something that he has wanted for years.
To support my brother, I’ve opened a fundraiser, so when he is forced to leave at least he will be able to support himself financially. He just graduated high school and is currently unemployed; he needs all of the help he can get.
I’m unbelievable angry at our mother for not being supportive of Al, and at our step-father for treating him like a joke. Please, if you can spare a dollar or two, I will be forever grateful. I want my brother to be able to pursue the life he wants to live. He is an extremely intelligent, creative, kind and funny person. He is full of potential. I think if I can see look at him and see that, a few kind strangers can too.
If you are unable to donate, please reblog this. Thank you.

A 14 year-old boy was recently raped at knife-point by a 20 year-old woman. When the story broke, it was primarily men who claimed he should have enjoyed it. It was feminists who validated his pain and spoke in support of him.
This is why we need feminism."
Women have been denied the right to vote, treated like property, sold to their spouses, raped every time it was war, misrepresented by entitled white male politicians, endangered every time they walked somewhere alone at night, denied the right to drive or be anywhere without a man, shamed for showing their faces, shamed for choosing not to show their faces for millennia, and still you think your biggest problem is that someone buys a mug that says “male tears”?
instead of spending so much time assuring other people that “asexuals can have sex to please their partner” why don’t we spend time assuring asexuals that they are under no obligation to have sex with their partners to please them, and that if their partner cant respect their sexuality, they don’t deserve them.
