I’m blogging daily over at listeningtothenoiseuntilitmakessense.com — please find me there.
This is one of my favorite zines I ever made, a fat liberation zine called A Special Treehouse for Fat People.
I talk about how doctors treat me about my fatness, beginner’s fat activism, fat yoga, people’s complex food beliefs and how I navigate them as I prepare food for big events, loving myself unconditionally, shedding old beliefs. There’s the poem that started the zine, and some super-cute drawings of bees.
It’s not really long, but there’s a second issue in the works. I’d love to trade with you! Please contact me to swap addresses. I’m at gmail’s robotmad.
“People are shrinking and squeezing themselves into what counts as able-bodied under capitalism, and I think most people are doing the same thing with gender. Most people are gender non-conforming and we are squeezing ourselves into these categories to keep ourselves safe.” Mia Mingus is my hero!
My intention is to somehow migrate all my dangerous compassions over here.
