I did this comic for New Matilda. Like my FB page for more.
The more we depend on women to prevent rape, the easier it is to blame them when it happens to them. Here’s a look at the well-documented ways we can actually stop rape. Maybe it’s time we invest a little more time and resources into implementing them before we send gallons of nail polish to colleges across the country.
I think there is a need for narratives of happy aces. Aces who are in romantic or (queer)platonic relationships. Aromatics who are happy not being in a romantic relationship. Demisexuals and grey aces who are enjoying their lives, who are becoming the people they want to become. Aces from all walks of life, from any intersecting identities, who are exploring themselves, taking care of themselves, accepting themselves.
Narratives of aces who suffer are so important and it is crucial that we listen to them. It is also important that we foster productive positivity, and that we support these aces in their journey towards happiness. To do that, we need to demonstrate that we can be happy, and that we will help others get to that point, too. We are overlooked in the cultural story that has been prescribed for us.; therefore, we will create and share our own stories. I want each and every one of you to know that you deserve happiness, and to feel empowered.
Send in your stories, tell us your goals, describe your journey. Share as much or as little as you like. Tell the community, and the world, that you exist, and you are every bit as worthy of happiness and respect as anyone else.

"The reality is that fat people are often supported in hating their bodies, in starving themselves, in engaging in unsafe exercise, and in seeking out weight loss by any means necessary. A thin person who does these things is considered mentally ill. A fat person who does these things is redeemed by them. This is why our culture has no concept of a fat person who also has an eating disorder. If you’re fat, it’s not an eating disorder — it’s a lifestyle change."- Lesley Kinzel (via mustangblood)

"More girls have been killed in the last FIFTY years, precisely because they were girls, than men were killed in ALL the battles of the 20th century.-
More girls are killed in this routine gendercide in any ONE decade, than people were slaughtered in ALL the genocides of the 20th century."
Read that AGAIN.
