Will you give a dollar (or more!) to help Wild Iris Books? They’ve already been behaving like a nonprofit for years, putting on feminist and LGBTQ+/trans-specific events and providing activist education. They are extremely bi and trans friendly. Some of their recent adventures include the Sinister Wisdom release party (Southern lesbian history), organizing the sign-making party for the protest in front of Gainesville’s new Hobby Lobby, and hosting trans activist Peter Cava’s talk about the new book Trans Bodies, Trans Selves, an event that concluded with a discussion between trans audience members about how they and their straight allies can work towards safer streets for trans pedestrians.
ok I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned this but I keep thinking about the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and how the best character in the whole story is only briefly mentioned. We’re given such limited amount of information about the guy that sells Jack the beans. essentially:
- This guy has access to MAGIC BEANS
- He either has NO USE for MAGIC BEANS or so many of them that he can just dispose of them
- He really badly wants a cow
Why is the whole story not about this guy
i never realized this before
if skinny people get this mad over one lyric in a song imagine how they would feel if they had to face the constant reminders that there is something fundamentally flawed and disgusting about your body and that it’s all your fault and that it would be better if you just didn’t exist (and this was evidenced, upheld and justified by popular culture, media, medical journals, clothing stores, family, friends, total strangers etc.)
y’all couldn’t do it. y’all wouldn’t last a day.
