Cathy Brennan, radical “feminist,” has set her sights on a young black activist in Baltimore County, MD. Phylicia Sampson is being taken to court by Brennan, a notorious harasser of trans women and their supporters. Sampson is a recent college grad with few resources, no car and no way to fight back without your help.
As a community, we’ve suffered Brennan’s assaults for a long time—her blog is the best known for outing trans women’s personal information. She believes trans women are men who are infiltrating the feminist community and expends her resources fighting them. The idea that she is now taking her harassment to a legal venue is horrifying. That she has selected a young black woman with few resources to fight back is repugnant.
We can’t let Cathy Brennan get away with this! Share Phylicia’s campaign on Facebook, twitter, tumblr and instagram. Here are some things you can do TODAY to help:
- Tell your friends why it is important that they donate to this campaign.
- Donate what you can.
- Write to your favorite feminist blog and ask them to cover this campaignIt’s pretty awesome to have allies and supporters.
Help my girl out, DONATE if you can and Signal Boost! If you’re tired of Cathy Brennan attacking people for calling her out on her bullshit, support Phylicia in her defense!
omigod I am so sick of this monster of a woman PLEASE help a girl out

Georgia Hero Who Became Paralyzed After Saving 4-Year-Old Girl Is Unable To Pay For His Medical Bills
A man being hailed as a hero for saving a 4-year-old girl from drowning in a Georgia creek remains in the Redmond Regional Medical Center’s Intensive Care Unit after becoming paralyzed from the waist down during the rescue.
Michael Patterson was at Euharlee Creek near Rockmart last Saturday with his 9-year-old son Cole when the two heard Carlisa Jones cry out that her daughter Jevaeh had been pulled underneath the water.
Patterson selflessly dove straight down off the dam without a moment’s thought.
Unfortunately, “he dove too deep,” his mother Vickie Jones said, and hit his head hard on the creek’s rocky bottom breaking his neck in three places and severing his spine.
Amazingly, Patterson still managed to save the little girl’s life.
“They don’t know how (he saved her),” Jones said. “The little girl was at the bottom, but they saw something push her up. They got the little girl and they didn’t realize what happened to Michael.”
The 43-year-old was found minutes later floating down the creek, with his face in the water.
“He did drown,” his mother told The Cedartown Standard. She said he is currently in a medically induced coma and has been on and off life support.
Patterson, who just two weeks ago pulled a man out of a burning gasoline tanker, is being called a “real hero” by his doctors.
But there is not much else they can do for him, and Jones says her son doesn’t have the health insurance necessary to get better treatment.
A carpenter by trade, Patterson had just recently landed a contractor gig, but the job did not provide insurance.
“He’s been employed for many years, but when the market fell and everything, he got in the unemployment line because many companies had to cut back,” his mother said. “He worked on his own here and there. He’s a wonderful, hard worker.”
Jones, who is also taking care of a husband with Stage IV cancer, says she wants to have Patterson transferred to a private nonprofit spinal cord rehabilitation hospital, and hopes to be able to raise the necessary funds with the Internet’s help.
“If anything can be done, they will do it,” Jones said of the doctors at the Shepherd Center.
FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT you are allowed to feel proud of yourself for things that might seem silly to other people, like getting better at a video game or putting together a nice outfit for the next morning or finishing a book. You deserve to feel proud for your accomplishment.

The Root Cause of Diabetes Has Been Identified
A quote from the article
Fiorina and his team studied hundreds of pathways in animals with diabetes. They eventually isolated one, known as ATP/P2X7R, which triggers the T-cell attacks on the pancreas, rendering it unable to produce insulin.
“By identifying the ATP/P2X7R pathway as the early mechanism in the body that fires up an alloimmune response, we found the root cause of diabetes,” says Fiorina. “With the cause identified, we can now focus on treatment options. Everything from drug therapies to transplants that require less immunosuppression is being explored.”
My dad just got tears in his eyes at this news. And then he was like “i wonder if they’ll find a cure in my lifetime. at least i know you kids will be good if you develop it later on in life”
JUST BECAUSE UR FRIEND’S PARENTS SEEM NICE WHEN YOU MEET THEM DOES NOT MEAN THEY ARE NICE PEOPLE B/C YOU DO NOT SEE WHAT HAPPENS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS!!!!!!!!!
