He rather use the same amount of money to play golf than provide poor people with food. That’s all you need to know about America’s President.

it’s really such an important statistic that meals on wheels needs 3 million to run for an entire year and he’s spent that eight times over since he took office AND he wants to defund it??? i just????????????????

*leans over* And guess where he’s spending all that tax money for transport, play, and all his secret service agents pay for hotel rooms for the stay… that’s right. At *Trump* branded hotels and golf courses. The ones he still owns.

It is many years in the future. A disease has wiped out 90% of the men on earth. Marriage is illegal and men are encouraged to breed with as many women as possible. Life is easy… until you fall in love.

Because same-sex marriage is not a thing, and we definitely couldn’t figure out how to use a sperm bank, or how cloning could save our species, and definitely no one was pregnant at the time of this catastrophe. We all know there are no smart women in STEM at all who could figure this out. All the women walk around barefoot in our aprons, dazed, unsure of how to function now that The Men are gone. Who will open our jars???

Oh, wait

These two were such a privilege to work on. The story is one of struggle, triumph, becoming the person on the outside you knew you were on the inside, and a hero that inspired you to do so.
Thanks so much for letting me be a part of that journey via these commissions. I wish you the best of luck.
