Things have been quiet on my end lately; both my phone and my laptop had to go to the shop (more than once) and I traveled a LOT between Baltimore, Saskatoon, Edmonton, and all my holiday trips, but they should be getting back to normal shortly! Before I dive in and wrap up 2018, there are two announcements that I’d like to make!
A Friend In Need
Many of you know SugarCunt (of SugarCuntWrites, temp offline). They fled across country from an abusive relationship about a year ago and things were better for a while, but they are currently homeless and could really use some help! If you have any cash to spare, please consider sending it their way. If you can’t use cash.me, you can send the money through my PayPal, with the note “for warmth” or similar. Please don’t use their name, as bulk transactions to “SugarCunt” may cause an issue.
If you know how to get a cat registered as an emotional support animal, or (winter) clothing resources for fat homeless folk, please email them at the email below.
Slixa Essay Competition
Are you a current or former sex worker? Do you love writing? Want to maybe win some money while also educating people? You’re in luck!
