I'll just say this: nonbinary folks are not your thought experiment.

Hey, I'm a disabled queer who has been denied government support. Most of my income comes from commissions but since I suffered a significant back injury more than a week ago, i've mostly been out of commission (ha ha) while recovering and I'm already behind on my bills.

please.. even just a couple of bucks helps us and every boost and crosspost matters

Regarding last boost and Kickstarter Show more
I'd seen that and I agree on taking the union's steer on this tbqh, at least for existing projects I've already pledged to fund.
But I can understand if people are very disinclined to send KS any money at all. It sort of galls me for what I've already paid and pledged, but again--I feel like the union should be the voice here.
On boycotting Kickstarter Show more
This thread from points out that the union has not called for a boycott, and that boycotting right now hurts small creators and may actually provide ammunition for the scumbag lawyers Kickstarter is hiring.

My friend Lex got into a car accident on the way to the food bank (in the greater Seattle area) with their mom and could use some help getting the car back from the towing company. Lex's mom is a cancer patient and that makes any logistical problem like this more complicated.
