im having a really people-repulsed day. I don’t want to be near people, i dont want them to touch me or look at me or even speak. I want them to stay away because theyre gross. I have my exception, but i want silence and no one else.
Things people with Social Anxiety do
•go to the bathroom to escape
•feel very uncomfortable without a phone or some other crutch
•dwell on a small awkward moment for much longer than necessary
•never go to any social event without a person that makes you feel comfortable
•follow said person way too much
•worry about the person beginning to find you obnoxious
•faking an illness to get out of a social event
•Dont buy something necessary because the cashier is intimidating.

My name is Sebastian, I’m a twenty-two year old trans man living in Ottawa, Ontario Canada. My fiancé, Logan, lives in England. We’ve been together for years now, working the long distance relationship as best we can. It’s been rough, lately, with Logan suffering from a disability which had stunted his income to a few small government cheques a month.
Back in January of this year (’14), Logan applied to a Canadian grant that would allow him to live and work in the country for a full year. He applied and was rejected. We were both devastated, and it was a very heavy blow to our individual depression. Months after, a co-worker of mine introduced me to a program called SWAP, a Canadian run organization that sends Canadians between the ages of 18 and 30 overseas for differing periods to work and gain experience. It was a spark of hope for both Logan and I, the only problem is, it’s very expensive. The Visa itself is included in a $680 dollar fee, plus travel insurance (minimum $400), as well as a security fund of £1,800.00 (That’s about $3,300 Canadian dollars). Then there’s also the plane ticket, as well as a renewed passport and all of my current medical bills.
I work a full time job, taking 3 buses a day to reach my place of work, and three buses back. I am a minimum wage earner, and while I’m funnelling a large portion of everything I make into a savings account, it’s become increasingly rough trying to balance rent, food, bills, and transportation costs. What I have managed to save thus far is a pittance compared to what we need. We appreciate anything thrown our way, even if it’s only a dollar or two, and would not ask if we weren’t desperate.
For me, at least, the chance to escape to England to be with my partner is everything. I’m on the cusp of transitioning, and have spent a good while now with several doctors and a very expensive psychologist (the only local woman who deals with Transgender issues). To get away from an unsupportive home to a place where I have never felt more welcome is my ultimate goal, and I wish I had more than gratitude and coffee to offer. We both do.
I put off starting a fund raising page for a very long time, but when a friend up and tried it, I figured that was motivation enough. Even one dollar would mean the entire world and more to us, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

AYE. THESE TWO PEOPLE ARE THE BEST. I don’t talk to them often but they are seriously some of the best people I know and have been together for what it feels like ages and were practically made for each other. They are each others support and are separated by a large body of water. If you were feelin’ the need to be generous, this would be a good thing to donate to so that two people can get together for a period of time.
Please, please help these babes out they are amazing. ; a;

So, I’ve seen a few of these kind of give-aways, and though it’s always a great thing to give presents, giving them to someone who really needs them is even better! Therefore, I’m going to spend a bit of the money I have on giving away a set of one brief or boxer style harness, appropriate for everyday use, and a packer.
This give-away is limited to trans and non-binary people, who need it, because I want it to go to someone, where it really matters. I’m not going to be policing, but if you reblog for other purposes, I hope you feel guilty <3
- Rodeoh harness: Choose between brief or boxer. A few color options available. The winner will decide color and size. Harness is appropriate for both packing and strap-ons, and can fit normal sized dildos.
- Classic Packie: Available in three sizes - you decide how big you want your bulge to be. Also available in three skin colors. If none of them are right for you, we can look into finding something else! Note that the packie is not meant for harnesses, but should be held in place by normal underwear.
The giveaway will end August 6th, when I get back from my holiday, so you have a bit of time. I will ship internationally, and you don’t have to be following me. Likes don’t count, don’t be a dick about you reblogs etc.
Good luck everyone!
Ps. Signal-boosting for your trans and non-binary followers is totally also ok, just please add a comment to the post, saying something about signal-boosting, so I don’t have to go looking through tags!

just gonna say this: if someone has social anxiety and they ask you something akin to ‘are you mad at me’ or ‘do you hate me’, it isn’t because they don’t trust you, it’s because their brain literally tells them that all the time
it’s not a personal slight, it’s insecurity caused by mental illness
