Something for my feminist theory class.
I’d love to see the reactions to this from a crowd. I can kind of imagine a quiet, solemn understanding from the ladies and a lot of confused questions from the guys… If my memory of art school serves me.
In 9th grade English we read Laurie Halse Anderson’s “Speak”. For those of you who haven’t read it, the author makes it abundantly clear that the teenage protagonist, Melinda, was raped, before the protagonist actually says it.
Our English teacher asked the boys in the class what happened to Mel. They came up with the most ridiculous answers. Every girl in the class just knew.
This just goes to show…
Not all men menace women, but yes all women have felt menaced by a man.
Every girl understands this because every girl knows the fear implicit in this image.
I don’t throw the term genius around loosely, but..
I had a friend who had a wallet made from a Stayfree extra long wrapper and she took it travelling in Asia and a guy picked her pocket and he dropped it and screamed when he thought he had a pad in his hand.
That is the most beautiful story I’ve ever heard
IRIS is a substance that exists in all women. It appears to be a sensible and powerful chemical, but due to the changing nature of its state, it has been studied scarcely and thus remains a mystery.
IRIS is a project I made in collaboration with Edición Instantánea in Morelia, Michoacán. We produced a silkscreened edition of 60 copies of this zine, and I drew and watercoloured extra stuff on each copy. Each zine is huge! (26.5 x 33 cm / 10.4 x 13 in) so, because it would be a hassle to mail that, and because I only got very few copies for myself, it will not be available online. If you’re interested in getting a copy, you can get it at:
* RIPExpo (Providence, US) / August 2 & 3
* Lobo Zin Pellejo (DF, México) / Agosto 16
* Helsinki Comics Festival (Finland) / September 5, 6 & 7
I will have my last copies of IRIS available at CAB (Nov. 8, Brooklyn, NY)
895. Muggleborns wonder why there’s a large group of friendly, teenage ghosts around Hogwarts. They’re led by a funny boy with red hair who likes to joke around with Peeves, and he always says that they’re Dumbledore’s Last Army.
I’ve cried myself dry.
Why do y’all do this?!
