:ht: little cruelties (part five): looking to the future 

cw: image of extreme body modification performance (fakir musafar)

when examining these “little cruelties” and their cult following, it’s difficult not to be frustrated seeing indigenous art and ritual be called an invention of white men, when the foundations of body piercing, tattooing, and sadomasochism as healing are undeniably Black, Brown, and Indigenous.

is it possible to decolonize such an undeniably appropriated practice?

:ht: little cruelties (part five): looking to the future 

one of the reasons i so passionately share resources relating to RACK and safer body modification is because the community that has rallied to survive and preserve the queer and healing aspects of these practices is largely queer and trans themselves.

organizations like TNG(11), Fakir Intensives(12) and APP(13) hold conferences that teach industry professionals standards of safety, and are largely run by folks 40 and under.

cw: acupuncture needles

a couple months ago I was referred to an acupuncture session to help with my chronic pain by my PCP. I was grouped with cancer patients, folks struggling with addiction, and other terminally ill patients, some of whom were in hospice. we sat in a conference room in silence as the acupuncturist placed 25 needles in our ears and walked us through 25 minutes of breathing exercises.

Des has raised $655 of their $5000 goal so far, thank you to everyone who has donated thus far!

Des added a breakdown of the costs on their gofundme, and told me that they’re not going to be doing general anesthesia or laughing gas unless they can raise more than $5k, as nitrous is an extra $150 and anesthesia is an extra $500.

Please share widely and consider donating if you can. 🤍

‼️URGENT MUTUAL AID NEEDED‼️

My partner Des is a 24yo financially independent trans latine who just found out they need urgent periodontal surgery to save their teeth. Their surgery is scheduled for June 25th, and their insurance will only cover $2000 of the $7500+ surgery. They work 50 hours per week while putting themselves through college unassisted, and they cannot afford this surgery alone.
