Daddy
$2

  • You'll get to control me through findom manipulation.
$5AUD - Shadowy Financier Double-Daddy

  • You'll be able to ask me anything, and I will reply regularly via video, podcast, or blog.  Everyone can hear the answer, but only daddy can ask.
  • All previous tier benefits.
  • I have become subtly but utterly dependent on your generosity.  Sometimes you revoke it.  I feel trapped.  You make me call you 'double daddy'.
$10AUD - Ruthless, Scheming Triple-Daddy
$7
per month

(Note:   Patreon charges in USD, so for Australians I've set this tier to $7 - roughly equivalent to $10AUD.)


  • I will privately message you once a month to tell you how much I love you and would never leave you.  I legitimately will.
  • All previous tier benefits.
  • You alternate between demanding that I should wear heaps of make up and no make up at all.  Either way, I must comply.  I have to call you 'triple daddy', otherwise you cut my phone off for a week.

About

G'day! I'm Tom Tanuki, and I’m a writer, satirist and anti-fascist activist in Australia. I cover participatory democracy in Australia - the world of protests, activism and so on - and I do a bit of political comedy online, on the stage and at rallies. 

Projects include:


I co-wrote and performed Australia's (maybe the world's) first live theatre-comedy show by a proper anti-racist action group: 'Yelling At Racist Dogs: Just As Bad' with Sean Bedlam at the 2019 Melbourne Fringe Festival. My work has been discussed sympathetically by ABC's Media Watch, and less sympathetically by Andrew BoltThe Australian and basically every sooky Australian far-right grifter ever.

I have done lots of cool shit since I began my foray into political comedy and anti-fascism in 2016 but I need the time to do a lot more.  So,  here I am, begging and scraping for you to financially dominate me.

Here's what I'll be doing in exchange for the hot findom scenario you've trapped me in:

THE POOR CAN FEED THE BIRDS
Forthcoming fortnightly podcast, starting in December. In my dulcet tones, I'll cover upcoming or recent direct or participatory politics and activism around Australia, and interview the people who know best about it; I'll shit on Canberran 'democracy' and its mighty defenders; and I'll talk a wealth of shit.  The Poor Can Feed The Birds will feature a gig guide of upcoming rallies nationwide.  Your contributions will be vital and very welcome.

VIDEOS 
I will release videos, either a character vid, or a 'me' one. They'll be sick. The more support I get, the more time I can allocate to the lengthy process of videos. Look to my history with MFP, YARD, the Tom Tanuki page and more for the kind of video content you can expect from me.

WRITING
I am published in New Matilda and Independent Australia, and I write my little heart out online. Our findom relationship will give me time to do that much more frequently. I'll either get someone respectable to publish my words, or publish them on my site.

ONLINE WORK (AND OFF)
I will, of course, continue to talk excellent shit online across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and everywhere else - the way you probably found me! And I’ll continue the behind-the-scenes work I do to aid activist and anti-fash scenes around Aus. That means running and organising YARD, shady coordination stuff, community support, and much, much more (fkn believe me). And I will be at all your rallies.

I try to act as a translator and a mediator between certain kinds of activism and the wider world, moving between several grassroots scenes to coordinate and connect with many different communities. I reckon I stand at the precipice of being able to unite those worlds more strongly through the work I do. As the requirements of what I need to do increase, it gets harder to do it properly without committing more time to it. But I work several jobs, and it's hard to find more time to do what I need. However, as it seems we're about to enter into a decade of hellworld, I should not be downscaling what I do. It's growing more important than ever to translate and advocate.

So, I'm asking for your help. You supporting me means I can set more of my time aside to do the kinds of things I already do - plus doing all the new things I’ve outlined above to add to my already-busy agenda from December 2019. 

  • If I get a little money, I can use that for ongoing expenses: constantly shelling out for equipment, podcast maintenance, and software associated with all the multimedia stuff I do. 

  • If I get a little more than that, I can start travelling to protest actions around the country. 

  • If I get even more than that, I can begin to take on editors to work with my material so I can spend more time making new stuff. I could even help foster other foundling activist causes with more than just exposure and words, so you know your support really is helping develop and unify participatory politics in Australia.  That is my goal.

If you've ever benefited or learned from my shit, or ever seen me annoy the right people, I'd ask you to think about how much more I could do with your support.


It also means you get to boss me around, show me off to your friends, emotionally manipulate me, threaten to starve me of the income you've promised me, and do all the other things that you love so much about findom arrangements. You'll be daddy. The sheer control you'll wield in this relationship will be very intoxicating for you. Picture this:  you, cruising along the Gold Coast Hwy in your topless Lambo, knowing you've ordered me to stay inside the Imperial Suite at the Palazzo Versace otherwise you'll cancel all my credit cards. Wow! That's some real daddy shit.  That will be your life once you sign up to this Patreon!
Goals
120 of 300 patrons
When I reach 300 findom daddies, I will begin Patreon-only ask-me-anything seshes.  They won't be live.  You'll just submit em to me.  I'll tell everyone the answers, but only my daddies can ask me the questions.  I'll go deep into whatever I'm asked.  Just 4 u x
