Not Lonely #5 

A6 (quarter) sized, 40 pages, pretty text-heavy


The latest issue of my perzine focuses on the history of my relationship with the internet (including my first experiences of using it in a small-town library, its role in facilitating my partner and I getting together & why I no longer use livejournal or facebook); and my diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (including a breakdown of its definition, my own experience of its symptoms and a reflection on its validity - or otherwise - as a diagnosis). There are also handwritten intro and outros, a "guess the lyrics" quiz and some yummy winter soup recipes (suitable for vegans). It's partly typewritten, partly handwritten and was made cut and paste style.

 

Please visit this post on my blog for information on how to get a copy.

PLEASE HELP! The deadline is running out for fundraising for The Lips Bus, a veggie bus dedicated to starting discussions about independent media and sexuality. If everyone in this group donated $10 or more, that would REALLY help us meet our deadline of the 17th when we can't fundraise online anymore! Please help support a fellow zinestress with big dreams:

issue #4 of the radical feminist compilation zine hoax is underway and we need yer submissions! the topic is feminism & hirstories and our formal submission date is september 30th, 2010.

here are some examples of what we are looking for: the “click” moment when you realized you do or don’t identify as a feminist; growing up with/without feminism in yer life; stories from childhood, inspirational people (in yer families, culture, literature, etc.); introduction to women/trans/people of color’s work & theories in high school/college/etc.; relationship to past feminist movements (first wave, second wave, third wave, riot grrrl, etc.); in-depth essays about feminists of the past; history of witches, the clitoris, scientific/religious/philosophical views of female sexuality; past feminist movements that might not be well known (in africa, south america, etc); looking back to compare the state of women now to the state of women in the past; what you foresee in the years to come; what your ideals are for the years to come; HIV/AIDS and the queer movement; the importance of preservation for queer/POC/trans/disabled groups; social constructions of sexuality, race, gender, etc.; what it means for you to be a survivor of sexual assault (even a story about yer assault); the history of yer hair (POC & having “natural” or chemically straightened hair / the decision to stop shaving body hair in relation to feminist politics); having an “alternative” family (gay parents, adopted, cared for by grandparents, living in foster care, etc.)

also, we really need artwork! individual drawings, paintings, collages, or comic excerpts are all desirable! if you need more time to come up with something, or will be unavailable to mail us something before then, e-mail us and we can work something out! hoaxzine (at) gmail (dot) com!

Hey all,
Here is a link to download this new zine titled Asexual Feminism. This first issue is devoted to how asexuality relates to feminism.

A good read for sex-positive feminists, interested in differing sexualities.
