having my mind blown by this zine
"There are no activist communities, only the desire for communities"
"What we have are groups of friends and circles of acquaintances"
this is so important in developing RESTORATIVE accountability that can mend fractures in a shattered communityPosted on September 29, 2014 at 2:01 PM
if it’s inaccessible to poor people it’s not radical

The top two images focus on my body and as I see it, in a broken world. My body is conquering those negative cracks in the cycle of like and social acceptance. The bottom two images focus on those cracks that are obsicles and imperfections. The bottom two represent how my presence here, is flawed and broken. My anxiety takes over my personality and my depression makes me feel a lot more shattered than this Mirror right here. In the end they all represent the positive and negative sides of my personality and body image. I will conquer what haunts me most..In time..

color coding your infant children
fun fact: it’s really difficult to find cheap baby clothes that are not super gendery.
almost everything at target is either pink/flowered/sparkly or has mustache print/sewn-on neckties/words like “daddy’s little dude” printed on it. after looking for 20 minutes to find a onesie we finally dug up something with grey & yellow stars which, while not particularly cute, would not invite speculation about the baby’s genitals.
also, the majority of the baby clothes we have are hand-me-downs. we try and weed out the most egregiously gender essentialist items but we have to work with what we get.
baby clothes in simple patterns or solids in a variety of colors without phrases printed on them are expensive ($20-30 for something they will grow out of in <1 month!) and harder to find.
tl;dr: don’t spend too much time hating on parents for their kids’ clothes; a lot of people don’t have a ton of choice in the matter.

- The protests are being held in order to achieve universal suffrage in Hong Kong. Although democracy had been promised for 2017 in 2008, China announced this August that Hong Kong people would only be able to vote from a pool of 2-3 specially selected candidates (all of whom…
