Tumblrina SJW Trauma Drama

Thalia Gomez is a lesbian and a feminist (but I repeat myself).

Last week on her Tumblr blog (because of course she’s got a Tumblr blog) she posted a desperate plea for assistance:

Please Help Me Leave My Abusive Girlfriend
I’m reaching out mainly to the radfem community because you guys have been so empathetic towards me, so, hi, I know you guys don’t know me very well but my name is Thalia Gomez and a few months ago my gf started abusing me. To preface this, she’s got severe Anxiety and OCD. Once she graduated from college she spiraled into a depression where she couldn’t move from her couch and would just obsessively smoke weed. Her anxiety prevents her from getting and holding a job because she’ll have a panic attack, she’s currently switching medications too so her behavior towards me is worse now. Because of this I’ve had to hold down the household with some help from her mom who pays the rent (I take care of utilities, food, and Other expenses like our pets). I work only part time currently because I have to come home and essentially be my gf’s caretaker (make sure she takes her meds, is active, eats at least twice a day, isn’t harming herself, etc) as well as do most of the housework and cleaning and taking care of the cats she wanted to get which I also provide for. I’ve officially run out of money and I’m about to lose my job because we’re moving to a new apartment in less than a week. So this is where it gets bad. Her abuse has gotten worse and worse. She keeps pressuring me for drug money to the point of following me around the apartment, refusing to let me leave, hitting me, throwing things at my face, and verbally abusing/manipulating me by telling me I don’t pay rent so I owe her money. At one point she owed me $400 and we couldn’t afford to eat because she couldn’t get the money from her mom and she ended up selling half her things (she is still selling anything of value in order to buy weed). She will tell me to give her “her” money and to leave her house because she doesn’t want to be with me anymore and breaks up with me whenever I don’t give her what she wants or whenever I try to talk to her about my feelings towards her abusive behavior. This has happened at least once a week for the past 6 months. Most recently I tried to leave her and move out and she fought me and refused to let me go. I was trying to be civil until she poured bleach on me and the clothes I was packing up. She then, after asking if I was still leaving her, to Which I replied yes, grabbed a blunt glass object and told me to get out of her house before she seriously hurt me. After that I told her I did not want to see her anymore and she (knowing I had very little money) used my account to pay for a $200 electric bill. I have nowhere to go and now I’m actually broke and forced to live with her. I’m just trying to raise some money to get out. Even just $500 will help me go to a halfway house. If anyone could please help me out I’d really appreciate it. It’s gotten to the point where I feel like a hostage and I’m treated as one. I can’t even call her my gf anymore because she just treats me like shit and destroys my things and threatens to physically hurt me if I exercise any agency. I’m scared and I can’t do this by myself. If you guys could even just reblog this and get it out there to people I’d be more than appreciative. Here’s the link: https://www.youcaring.com/thaliagomez-1165048

She updated her plea this week:

Hey guys, I’m currently in the middle of moving into a new place with her. I’m trying to keep my things packed separately but I can’t do it for long and I had to pay for part of the move. I don’t get paid until Friday and I now have to look for a new job because I couldn’t transfer to another store. So far I’ve been keeping my distance from her and she has a concussion from a previous incident so she’s not really interactive which has helped since she’s just sleeping mostly. I pretty much had to pack the entire place by myself and work part time and take care of her because she can’t even move really without her head flaring up. I just want out. If you could please reblog this and help get the word out there. So many of you already have and I’ll forever be appreciative of it. Thank you so much.

Well, what can we say? According to Ms. Gomez, her girlfriend is a mentally ill unemployed dopehead who “threatens to physically hurt” her. Just last year, however, she was posting stuff like this:

“I literally want to love this girl for the rest of my existence and as I’m writing this and playing with her hair she says I’m the love of her life and I just wanna cry of pure fucking happiness I hope everyone feels this way honestly”

and

“Everything about her is perfect
I can’t help staring at her like it’s the first time I saw her
I hope I never stop feeling this way
Hopelessly falling for her over and over again every day for the rest of our lives
Is this what true love is like?”

 

Just eight months ago, Ms. Gomez posted this:

“My girlfriend completely turned my life around. She gave me purpose, a world of happiness, and the opportunity to be unapologetically myself. We spend every waking moment together and I always want more. She makes me her priority and knows I will always do the same for her. I can’t fall asleep without her next to me and my day starts when I wake up to her beautiful smile and sea glass green eyes. Every day is an adventure with her, even when we lay around doing nothing. She’s my best friend and my soul mate and I can’t even imagine being without her. I can’t wait to marry her because I know I would rather argue or fight with her every day than to ever be complacent with somebody else. She’s the one.”

Now the abuse is getting “worse and worse,” but Ms. Gomez is “actually broke and forced to live with” her unemployed psycho girlfriend.

“Using data from the National Comorbidity Survey, Gilman and his associates found that people reporting same-sex sexual partners have consistently greater odds of experiencing psychiatric and suicidal symptoms compared with their heterosexual counterparts.”
Christian Huygen, “Understanding the Needs of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People Living With Mental Illness,” 2006

Probably some Third Wave feminist theory could explain why the heteronormative patriarchy is responsible for this situation.

The final irony? She lives only 20 miles from Mar-a-Lago.

Think about that.
