AboutMalePrivilege’s owner needs to check their privileges.
Now there’s one thing that many of you don’t know about me—I do a lot of charity and volunteer work. One such action that is common for me is to help run a blog on Tumblr that won’t be named. This blog is run by four other persons who, also, do a lot of volunteer work and charity work. One day someone recommended to us a user on Tumblr named “Firework-comic”. This person most of you will know as the main Moderator and driving force behind the Social Justice Blog titled: About Male Privilege.
I was unaware of this fact until recently, but I digress. I’m getting ahead of myself and need to flesh out this little story fully.
boo you could have at least given me credit for providing you with that bit on the ~fancy milk cartons~ and her admitting to being middle class.
“Honestly, all of us should know better than to buy a three-inch-tall plastic milk carton for $7. Apparently, I don`t. Each of Tokidoki`s milk-themed Moofia toys comes in a cute milk-carton ´Blind Box”
Here’s some more links to entertain you:
“there’s nothing like getting yourself outside with only a pen and a moleskine.” Moleskines are expensive sketching books, amongst other things. What you could buy for less than 5 bucks, are over 25 when you buy one of those. I wonder why someone so poor they can’t afford food would go for a expensive brand sketchbook. Just a observation.
“But your little escapade did make me aware of how much I eat. I have no intentions to become anorexic or anything like that, but I also find myself eating not when I’m hungry, but when there’s food around. I think I just like the feeling of having something to chew, or the taste, without having any actual caloric needs. It’s starting to bug me a little, even though I’m vegetarian and pretty healthy. We never really think about our motives for eating, do we?”
This is the same person who on her blog stated that she doesn’t know what ”your body feel like when you have enough to eat?” and who says ”there were times when I didn’t have clean drinking water because we didn’t have money for it and went to bed thirsty wondering if I was going to die of thirst or something.” (And in the same two weeks talks about buying a DS game)
From her website
“I have covered the Riviera Maya area of Mexico for magazines in the UK, US, and Mexico. The ecological and culinary wonders of the area attract tourists from around the world, and my articles have described everything from Mexican vineyards to sustainable whale shark excursions.”
On that same page of her website she also states she’s used Adobe Photoshop for her work. If you used it as a professional/for your job, you have to use the legal version to avoid a huge fine. Which we all know, is expensive.
“As a college student I interned in Boston, MA’s Teen Voices, a nonprofit mentoring teen girls in the city through the production of Teen Voices, an art, culture, and youth guidance magazine distributed to schools and facilities across the US.”
As a college student? Wait a second… Here she’s saying “My college savings were spent when I was a kid and I really need help” and again “I never went to school”
Oh and the college she wants to go to that she so desperately needs to make money and afford food? Art school. One of the least reliable studies you can take if you have to do it for the money with a lot of expensive side costs. And when a person does make money in that field, I doubt it’s because your talent consists of this:
Someone simply asked what she’ll do with the fund money if she can’t make the deadline. She responds “Never ask a poor person “what will you do with all that money”.” “It’s none of your fucking business what I do with my education money. ” while the money comes entirely from donations. Isn’t she grateful for the money she begged out of people with all these lies?
BUT WAIT MY CHILDREN, THERE’S MORE
DISCLAIMER: All the information we have on her is publicly available for anyone because she herself posted it online without any protection for all to see. Finding that is no more a crime than your average journalist doing their job which happens to be the field I also work in. Which really, firework-comic, you as a fellow journalist should know. Google is not a illegal program to use.
For this edition I’m working more on laying connections than on just letting the links speak for themselves like the previous posts. Exposing contradictions in what she says.
Here we have her saying that her parents have been asking money from her since she was 14 and claims to have been poor for over a decade, which is a period of 10 years. While in previous links that we posted she has shown not to be poor during this time period. On her resume it also shows that she went to various art courses and schools during 2008 and 2009.
Another bit of info taken from her resume, she completed her GED in 2007. At least 5 years ago. Now correct me if I’m wrong but what I could find was that child support goes until the age of 18. It’s impossible for her to be younger than 18 if she got her GED 5 years ago. Of course te child support issue could be in the past. Yet here she states that her dad refused to pay child support and during that same time could take out 50k bank loans. I’m not stating true or false, but it strikes me as odd that he can just go about having vacations and loaning a ton of money from banks while neglecting child support.
Here she posts that sexist gender roles are to blame for part of her poverty “because misogyny taught her “support a man!11 work to provide him college money! then u have comfortable life!!”. Now that just seems like a silly statement, I’m pretty sure traditional gender roles do not mean that the mother has to work and provide for the family. You might be so tangled up in crying that you’re underprivileged that you don’t even know what you’re saying anymore.
Something extra fun, here is a post about how ”I often said that I wish I had a car or an iPhone so I could sell it and get food for that money.” and “Basically, I own nothing I can sell—not my clothes or shoes. Nothing has resale value attached except a car or a new computer, iphone, or game system, which you probably don’t have if you’re poor anyway.” and in the same month she says she’s buying a 3DS XL, a fitted hat and 3DS games.
And here she’s talking about donating 50 dollars. I’m not saying charity is bad, but why in the world would someone who claims that she doesn’t know what your body feels like when it’s had enough to eat just give away 50 dollars?
And now for some juicy facts
From thisiswealthyprivilege: ”My best female friend is really rich, even though she denies it (they designed and built their own apartment for over 100.000€” Which is pretty funny, since when using public records to see information on her own housing (Her adress was posted online on her resume by herself). We found this:
It also doesn’t seem to be a very poverty stricken neighborhood. There are highly recommended schools nearby and a apartment two housenumbers away goes for almost 900,000 dollar.
Since it was last sold in 2003, it’s safe to say she’s still living there. It was also a rent free house. So it’s also safe to say that firework-comic, contrary to many complaints on thisiswealthyprivilege, does not have to pay rent.
(Adress records on this post are blanked for obvious reasons to prevent people from possible harassing her in real life, she published it online, that’s how we found it. But we’re not going to post it here. She’ll remain the only one responsible for outing her adress. )
Now maybe her resume could be wrong? Actually, we’ve checked some other things to make sure. The magazines she said she worked for on the resume add up so assuming that her adress does as well is only logical.
That’s okay. We aren’t buying it either.
If I remember correctly, you can get your GED a tad longer, but most likely depending on the state’s law. I also know you might need your parents’ signature. So either way, she’s lying about the support issues.
