We're in a bit of a cash crunch at SeaBronies HQ, what with all the immense bills we've paid this month for VIPs, room deposits, plushie manufacturing, and more!

What's the best way you can help SeaBronies, and myself? Buy some merch! Check out seabronies.com/merch for some amazing goodies.
As many of you know, I founded SeaBronies.

We're doing an indiegogo to help fund the group by selling PLUSH TOYS of our adorable mascot, Sea Sailor (see MLP SketchVector: SeaBronies' Sea Sailor Mascot by mewtwo-EX and SeaBronies MERMAID charity prints by purpletinker).

Please buy one! They're just $30 for the next 30 (probably 29 by now!) days. AFTER THAT, THE PRICE WILL GO UP. We'd rather you buy them now for less— I'm plumping a lot of money to have these made!

After I stepped down from running Bronies-NYC, its staff were quick to distance themselves from my fight to defend myself against certain former BNYC staffers, who had taken to 4chan, posting nasty threads bashing me for being transgender. One of said staffers had even robbed me (personally) of several hundred dollars. BNYC remained "neutral", refusing to take my word (or my evidence, including bank statements) over the word of the thief in question. This created quite a bit of friction, and their taking my word as equal to that of a petty criminal still stings.

This friction came to a head in 2013, after BravoTV's "The People's Couch" aired an episode in which their panel of viewers watched BronyDoc and openly mocked me for being of ambiguous gender. I attempted to convince the head of BNYC to assist me in organising a protest outside the headquarters of BravoTV's parent network, NBCUniversal. The head was sympathetic, but Kar (chair of Ponycon, co-chair of BNYC) was not. She pressured the head of BNYC to issue a statement publicly disavowing any position on my protest, either pro or con. This led to a series of Internet and phone/text arguments, which led to Kar leading an effort to have me banned from BNYC for a year. A year later, after further petty arguments over an incident in which one of Kar's co-staffers blackballed me from informal social gatherings with one of my oldest friends (who was visiting from out of town; due to this staffer's actions, I was unable to see this friend of 18 years), this ban was made permanent.

After a year and a half of exile from the social group I had created— over a matter of petty Internet arguments (I did not cause any problems at BNYC events, and if they tell you I did, they are outright lying), I was depressed to the point of suicidality. BNYC was the only social outlet I had, the only social outlet I needed. Going to one BNYC event a month was enough to let me feel like I had some part in the local community. Without BNYC, I felt like an outcast in my own city. That is why I came to California.

Aw, thanks! :) I'm not an artist artist, just a design artist. I can't freehand! I just make stuff out of other stuff. :)
