what punks and anarchists are too scared to talk about: shaming, blaming, racism and sexism within our safe spaces.
that’s it. after meeting and knowing so many people in the punk scene and so many people that identify with anarchism that still shame people that self harm and have mental diseases, that unknowingly perpetuate racism and sxexism, and that still don’t recognize cases of rape and abuse (and sometimes apologize it), i’m writing a zine about it. i’ll tell everyone about my own experiences with all these subjects, and try to gather experiences from other people about all this.
it hurts me seeing that people that are supposedly so open-minded and that attempt fighting all kinds of discrimination are in fact still subdued to the white-cisgendered-patriarchy and are okay with it.
sweet followers, if you would like to contribute for this, i’d be so, so, so thankful. pictures, photographs, experiences, quotes, everything will do.
everything fits. tell me about your experience with mental illness, with self harm, with misoginy, with being discriminated for being trans* or queer, with racism, with fatphobia, with any kind of shaming or discrimination. it doesn’t have to focus on your experience with the punk scene or with anarchists, but i would prefer.
i’ll publish it online and print it, most likely i’ll give it away (unless the costs for it are too high for me to support on itself, if it is the case, i’ll sell it for the price it cost me). it will be on portuguese and english, and even spanish and french if someone is willing to help me translate it.
i still haven’t decided the title, but it will something like “what punks and anarchists are still afraid of talking about”. ideas?
so, here it is. i don’t want this to be about me, i want this to be about everyone who has somehow felt disrespected within spaces that are supposedly safe for anyone. please help me working on this, and signal boost this, will you? <3
