There's been...a lot that happened since my last update.
On June 4th, 2018, I was harassed, then arrested, beaten, and detained against my consent and express wishes for 77-ish hours.
The initial details/history/etc are on my personal website , but the summary is as follows:
In the weeks preceeding, I volunteered my time, tools, and energy to help out dozens of people in the Detroit City (Oregon) community.
Friday (June 1st), I shared food with them and helped clean up the public areas around city hall.
I invited them to put down their weapons and garden with me, on Saturday.
I expressed (legality) concerns about their demands to "stop volunteering and get out of town" on Sunday.
On Monday, they (Ramseyer, Zahn, et al) threatened, harassed, arrested, and finally beat me and gave me a concussion by slamming my head repeatedly against the pavement.
This is NOT FECKING OVER.
Please contact Jason Meyers of the Marion County police department and call for the suspension of EVERYONE INVOLVED until the investigation is complete.
Fill out a Citizen Complaint Form on my behalf.
Drown the responsible individuals in phone calls and paperwork until they're retrained or removed from the "Enforcement Division".
DO IT NOW.
Next time, they'll kill someone.
I only survived because I'm white-passing.
My needs have become much more complex, and I'm working with a team to address the plethera of accusations, misinformation, and outright lies being spread about me.
I'm now working against a system that wants over 20k in medical bills for "care" that I did not consent to, and legal fees that will be at least that much again, if not more.
The agoraphobia and PTSD is making this incredibly difficult.
In the past six months I've ruthlessly audited my personal finances and trimmed out all the things that aren't absolutely necessary.
Literally anything helps.
As far as my current landlord goes:
*Never rent from this person.*
Sean W. Brown promised I could stay "in this place, and call it 'home'" until Midsummer.
They don't keep their word, they are willing to lie under oath "eg I didn't know of any issues with the water" when the bank paid for a replacement hot water heater over a year ago that he STILL hasn't installed.
The entire electrical system is flaky, I can't plug any of my computers in without worrying about brownouts and shorts.
Sean threatened, harassed, and manipulated my friends, and even got the girl I saved from suicide to testify in court AGAINST me.
Sean W. Brown is the False Philosopher.
If you can't financially contribute, please share on social media, other people can help and just the boost offered by a spot on your news feeds will be enough if we all are generous when we have money in excess.

I am a member of the Audacious Space Pirates, we are peaceful people just trying to survive.
Help me prove we are stronger than our abusers.
That's me taking the punches.
Now they're trying spreading lies to try to make the criminal charges more severe.
This is a manipulation tactic, people.
Seek out the truth.
(It's easy, just read what I wrote and ask clarifying questions if you're confused.)
This is immesurably frustrating, because I asked the judge for 2 weeks to move the rest of my things out, and he gave me 7 days because he was annoyed I cut into his lunch hour or something.
As soon as this money arrives, I'll be able to fix my car the rest of the way.
But until then, I'm stuck.
I'm working on a plan with someone who has a trailor to come and load up my car and store it in their yard until I have money to get the tools to fix the frontend.
Please boost and share.
Every penny helps, literally.
I use pennies as temporary heatsinks for R&D as well as for bus fare.
And, if you're in the PDX area, feel free to stop by and offer me cash for the stuff I haven't sorted and packed yet.
I'm at https://map.what3words.com/water.become.fixed, and I have 20+ years of theatre props, electroncs in various stages of repair, and tools that I'm trying to move.
Today I'm working on migrating the last six months of scribbled notes into a working code repository.
I'm existing due to your generosity right now.
If you can boost this, please, lend me a slot on your social media timeline today.
Pay me with exposure?
I logged in today, and some amazing, beautiful, and unnamed people have pushed me past my goal, and I can actually pay for May expenses.
I can pay for my car insurance.
I can pay my phone bill.
I can eat nice food once a week without feeling guilty for wasting money.
I'm using some of it to help my friends. If you need help, (and it's after May 13th when gofundme transfers money), and you have Simple Banking, please tell me if you have an emergency, I will ALWAYS TRY TO HELP YOU.
Thank you, all of you who have contributed to making it possible for me to survive.
You shared my story, you donated to my need, and you read and listened and cared enough to act, in some way, that helped get me here.
You are beautiful.
You are loved, so so deeply and uniquely.
Please stay safe out there, you beautiful creatures.
Tessa loves you.
