And why I'm not gonna let anyone berate/insult/scare me out of voting for whoever the fuck I want to vote for.
(And as I was Mary Poppins for Halloween here's a little extra)
Kickstarter here PLEASE support this - these words need to get out and everyone who's read it LOVES it. I just have no more money to make any copies other then the ones that are already made.
A reminder of what you are supporting:
I will use the funds to make copies and distribute the zine far and wide. I want to put it in every info shop (activist bookstore) around North America and possibly every English speaking country around the world. This zine includes:

If you have a twitter account please go to #ididnotreport. There is also a sister hashtag #ididreport that kind of explains why there are so many stories on #ididnotreport. I have to say there is a strong TRIGGER WARNING for sexual assault, harassment, abuse and domestic violence. These are women giving reasons why they did not report their assaults. It can be overwhelming and devastating. I, myself, have given over 25 #ididnotreports. It's both cathartic and depressing for me how easily it flows from me. Read below the fold...
I am doing a callout for submissions! DUE APRIL 15TH! PUBLICATION MAY 1ST!
I am putting together a print-zine about (dis)Abilities and the activist community. Your post can be about anything related to that topic, whether it has to do with your identity as an Activist with a (dis)Ability or difficulties fitting into your chosen activist scene (e.g. Earth First!) as an Activist with a (dis)Ability.
Did you come to activism through your (dis)Ability?
Does your (dis)Ability make it harder for you to be taken seriously by people in your community?
Do you feel you have to teach people what life is like in your shoes?
Do you feel that you are by default a (dis)Ability Rights activist?

Due to blogrolling going down and making my blog inaccessible during it's time on my page I had to remove it *before* I could retrieve my blogroll.
Please help me rebuild it. Radical feminist blogs needed as well as radical lefties and then we can move to the more liberal, if we must, but you all know me I'm the evil socialist lurking in the corner. IWW and Earth First! forever! Read below the fold...
