About Squidlarkin System

hi! I'm Samara of Squidlarkin System. I started this Patreon last year when I began using my Twitter (https://twitter.com/squidlarkin) to try and communicate to a larger audience about my experience of being trans. but as I've learned more about myselves, my focus has shifted a bit.

I'm a member of a plural system. "plurality" is a community-adopted term for what are clinically referred to as dissociative disorders such as DID and OSDD/DDNOS. in other words, my brain experiences multiple identities, and we prefer to think of ourselves as separate people sharing a single body.

this is a highly stigmatized and controversial condition - even more so than being transgender or autistic (which we also are). which is why we think it's so important to speak openly about these experiences, so people like us can find context and know that they're not alone.

the work I'm doing is education and outreach, and I'm doing it because it needs to be done, not because I'm getting paid. but we have to eat somehow, and that's where this page comes in.

there will probably never be backer rewards offered here. it's often hard for neurodiverse folks like us to function in a capitalistic system, and I don't want to seal any of my writing behind a paywall. if you like what I'm doing, and you have money to spare, you have my deepest gratitude.

thank you for listening.
