End image description.]
This is my neighbor Plum, aka. plumbunny, and her two kids. DeAnthony (2) and Jasmyne (4). I’m gonna lay this out, short and sweet:
- Some serious bullshit went down with the cops and the children’s dad is in jail.
- A fluke left them with a $500+ electricity bill at the beginning of the month, just before rent was due.
- Plum’s job decided not to use sick pay for the sick days she took while coping with various psychiatric issues. Her last paycheck was $36.34.
- Plum still owes rent that was due on the first.
- Plus late fees.
- It’s a goddamn fucking miracle they haven’t evicted her family, knowing the apartment complex manager.
- She has nowhere to go but the shelter downtown if she does get evicted.
- She’s been my neighbor for three years.
- My best friend for two years.
- She only needs $50 to pay off her rent.
I’m hooking up my paypal (teh.flea(a)gmail(.)com) for the sole reason of taking donations for her.
Every cent goes to her.
Please, guys, I’m not asking for me. I have places to turn. Plum doesn’t. If you have just a dollar or two to kick her way, I would be grateful. (I’ll even draw you something for you in MSPaint, whenever I have a minute free from work.)
If you can’t donate, signal boost and reblog, please.
Peace family! A mother is in search of her daughter right now. Please help her locate her child and signal boost.

Federal agents: Help us identify endangered teen
Federal agents in Minnesota are pleading with the public to help identify a teen who may be in danger with other youths.
“We believe the pictured individual is at risk and may need law enforcement assistance, but may not be able to request it,” ICE spokesman Shawn Neudauer told msnbc.com on Friday.
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Minneapolis released still photos from online video showing a dark-haired male teen.
“We believe that if we can identify him, we can remove multiple young people from a dangerous environment,” he said.
Neudauer would not comment on the circumstances surrounding the case but said agents discovered images of the teen during a separate investigation.
“We believe he lived or may have lived in Minnesota or western Wisconsin,” Neudauer said. “It is entirely possible this young man is not currently in Minnesota or Wisconsin, but has either a friend or relative in the area, or recently moved from one of those states.”
Neudauer said the photos are still shots from an online video. In the photograph, the teen is pictured wearing a blue and red Minnesota Twins T-shirt. Other details released by ICE:
- The teen is between ages 13 and 19
- Photos were taken in a basement
- The photos are no more than 18 months to 24 months old, based on the Minnesota logo and when it first appeared in the market (July 2010) – also, it appears faded from several washings.“Tips have been coming in and we have a good number of leads, but we’re still investigating the case,” he said.
People with information can contact ICE/HSI on their tip line at 866-347-2423 or online at www.ice.gov/tips/
The scariest part is, nowhere is saying exactly why he’s at risk or what he’s at risk of.
Share and help lovers!
I really, really hate to even go here, but the way this is worded makes me strongly, strongly lean towards the thought that they believe that this child may be a victim of a child porn/child sex trafficking ring…So, signal boost.
Help find her please. Saw this getting off the train #signalboost (Taken with Instagram)
I have friend named Matthew (we call him Miles) living in a rural part of Missouri. He’s a nice guy; he’s gay, a bit of nerd, and always amiable. His family is abusive and controlling. From the first few time I’ve meet him (online), he has told me stories of how his family, his father in particularly, refused to allow him to have interactions with people outside the family. He virtually has no friends outside of the internet. They don’t even let him go outside without one of them watching him! They have even threaten revoke his use of computers to prevent outside interactions. The only reason he is even allowed on the internet is to take fundamentalist homeschooling courses that amounts to nothing more than indoctrination. He’s denied proper education, denied work experiences, and he doesn’t have the ability to run away far on his own because of how isolated his community is. He is emotionally tormented for being different from what his family wants him to be. Even his sister treats him like trash just because he’s queer. What’s worse is that he is 18 now, so his family cannot legally confine him but they still do by threatening him with financially destitution. Here is what he wrote to me and his other online friends:My name is Matthew [redacted], I’m a seventeen year old from a very small town in Missouri, and our reasons for doing this are varied, however, they center around two very important subjects - My family, and my school. My family, especially my father, are…not the best of people. It’s something I talk a lot about in the IRC. My father is very controlling and emotionally abusive, some examples including his control of the internet, my inability to leave the house without their supervision, my inability to use the phone without their supervision…I would go into more detail about a lot of things, however, a lot of it has been said in other places, and I will post a knowledge base for posts with more information. On my school…I’ve posted about it in the forums before, in fact, a thread on my school was the very first thing I ever posted to FSTDT. It is a very religious school with very hilarious ideas on what an education should be. http://mychristianschoolsucks.blogspot.com/ This should give you all of the info you need on my school, at least to know how much it sucks. I’ve posted other lessons and projects in various areas, will include the thread on my school in the knowledge base. Second question tends to be ‘If you’re seventeen, how do you plan on doing this legally?’, and the answer to that is - None of this is happening until after my birthday on March 7th.
As you can tell, we have been planning his escape from his family for a while now but there has been too much financial roadblocks. With how hard everything is financially for Mile’s online friends, we have become flustered with our inability to move this project forward. He needs money to pay for rent, food, to study for the GED and find a job. He’s going to run out of state so it’s going to be a long haul. I don’t want him to run away from his home only to end up homeless or worse. If you can donate please do. Whatever amount you can contribute is appreciated no matter how small.

My attention was directed to this post. It looks like a pretty good explanation of what’s going on over at Fanfiction.net. OP posted her FF.net account at the bottom if anyone has any questions, or send them to her Tumblr.
Hello. As most of you avid FF readers may have figured out by now, fanfiction.net has been doing a mass purge of the site and getting rid of a lot of stories that break the rules. When one of my own stories was deleted and my account was suspended for three days, I figured it was just the site moderators going through and doing some kind of routine check. However, when I found out that more and more people were having their work deleted - in some cases, just because the summary was “inappropriate” - something told me I had to look into this. The facts about what’s really going on may surprise you.
The people in charge of this mass deletion of stories are not site moderators. They are normal users of the site like anyone else. If you go to their profiles, you’ll see that they even have work of their own. They call themselves Critics United and they basically have nothing better to do except sit around and comb through the site for any story that has some kind of minor infraction. They then post it on their forum (most seem to be on either this thread or this thread, also here) so that other members of the group can go en masse to the story and not only report it for violating the guidelines, but also bully the author via review.
It’s one thing to quietly report a story that you think has broken the rules without saying a word to the author about it. However, what these people are doing is bullying. Earlier today I screenshotted some of the reviews that they’ve been leaving on the stories they go after, and some of what they say is truly sickening.
These are only a few examples. If you browse through their forum you’ll be able to see just how intense they get. As you can see from the reviews I posted above, these people aren’t just “critics” - they are bullies. The “constructive criticism” they supposedly dole out is anything but - something tells me that true constructive critics would not use words like “shitfic” or “toxic crap.” And by posting the links to these stories in their forums, it enables everyone else in the group to go and bully these authors as well.
(Funny thing is, they complain when the authors respond to them with less-than-pleasant words. I wonder why.)
Anyway, I think something needs to be done. Critics United prides itself on being strict followers of the rules and site guidelines; however, they fail to notice that they themselves are also breaking an important rule - no bullying or harassment. Unfortunately I don’t think there’s an easy solution to this problem, seeing as there’s no way to report specific users - only block them. However, I dothink it is important for everyone to know exactly what is going on. I know a lot of people were upset by what’s been happening, and they deserve to know the truth.
If you have any questions please feel free to message me on here or on my fanfiction.net account. That’s all.
This reblog of the original post has more comments that you may or may not find useful.
There is an individual from deviantart (username: gur0gur0 ) who has just joined tumblr. His username is gur0gur0. Normally, I don’t really give a shit about what goes down on dA or who joins tumblr since it’s a fucking free world.
But this grown man (he’s 34-years-old) has pedophile tendencies. He’s actually admitted that he is physically attracted to under-aged boys (I don’t mean like 16/17-year-olds…I mean like 8-12 year olds).
He’s a really sick person. He draws his “OCs” in a sexual nature and he has no remorse about it. When someone calls him out, he either gets his group of supporters to gang up on the commentator or he will try to find a way to rationalize his attraction to young boys. He’s aware that what he’s doing is wrong, but, he literally does not give a fuck. He says that if there weren’t such strict laws in place, he would have no qualms in drawing minors engaged in full sexual activities. Apparently, being in Canada prevents him from doing so at this point in time.
I don’t usually get involved with anything like this, but, the fact that he actually condones these actions in the real world is what gets me worked up.
I have a 13-year-old sister and if I knew a 34-year-old was posting the type of repulsive vomit he posts, I would make sure he NEVER EVER got near her.
This is NOT about hating on a person.
This has NOTHING to do with orientation.
This post is NOT a demand; simply a boost.
I just want to put this out there because I am genuinely concerned for the well-being of anyone in contact with this sick individual. The fact that he is okay with a child being in a physical relationship with an adult is sickening.
Pedophilia/suggestions of such are NEVER okay.
