Muchacha Issue #4 Winter 12’
“The Funny Female Issue”

In the mist of the whole “feminism & comedy” debate this summer after the Daniel Tosh fiasco (where he told a girl in the audience that he would find it amusing if she were gang raped), people were beginning to make false claims that feminists were being “too serious” and couldn’t “take a joke” . I thought about how the feminists in my life are the most hilarious people I have ever known. I reflected upon the funny female comedians, writers and humorous women on television that I have listened to, read and watched for years. I knew what the next theme of my fanzine needed to be…

This diverse 38 page issue contains a variety of submissions and pieces from hilarious self-identified feminists. Subject matter ranges from feminist performance pieces (“Size 2 Pants”-Guerrilla Girls on Tour!, “How to seduce a feminist”-Sarah Fox), Feminist Disney, comics ( “The Migrant Rights Activista on Her 21st B-day” “El Senor Bobo..”) the five stages of death concerning feminism within pop, men’s menstruation, satirical feminist songs, the debate between comedy and feminism itself, feminist jokes, Female Comics of Color, Samantha Bee on Abortion, “The Wisdom of Fran Lebowitz”, Daria Morgendorffer, fictional heroines and more! This issue is dedicated to every feminist who has ever been labeled “too angry” “too serious” or “too uptight”.

To purchase a copy visit my etsy shop or to trade message me or contact me at Riotgrrrl56@yahoo.com!

Shhh... is back for issue 2! This issue is text only, recounting 24 memories recollected in 24 hours. From childhood, adulthood, and years in between. This literary perzine returns in simple accordion format with lots of stories to tell within its pages.

This issue was the result of a challenge by fellow zinester Chris Francz who invited me to write a zine about 24 memories in 24 hours. All the writing was only allowed within that 24-hour period. Only editing and formatting was allowed after that.

what is your experience in sales of zines zinestone Etsy online? I think the price of postage prevents the purchase price together, the zine Etsy tean could create a network of print studio, or handmade producion in each country to reduce transport costs.
