"Inconceivable!" is a new zine dedicated to women who are not mothers - by choice. I would like for childfree women to be able to express how they think and feel and have a place to discuss how deeply the ideology of motherhood has infected our thinking about women and femininity.  I welcome and encourage any contributions anybody has!!! Message me!  Thank you!

The first issue of Gender Matters has been really successful. It's in the hands of many youth, teachers, parents and zine readers! All the sale proceeds have been donated to organizations that support trans/gender variant youth...nearly $350.00

SO LET'S MAKE ANOTHER ISSUE!

Topic: (Essays, anecdotes, comix, poetry) from gender variant folks telling stories of going through puberty and adolescence, and early adulthood experiences. Take that as broadly or specifically as you’d like; literally how your body was changing and how your brain was dealing with it, or going to a dance and how that made you feel, dating, coming out to your family, teachers, classmates, etcetera...

Audience: 7-12 grade students.

Specifics: The pieces should be free of cursing and overt sexual content, I want to get the zine in schools, so content should be school appropriate.

Why/Purpose: It’s rough trying to find age or school appropriate material for trans/gender variant/intersex youth and it’s imperative that all young people see themselves in print.

Puberty, adolescence, and early adulthood are hard for everyone but it’s extra alienating and difficult when you feel alone and radically different from the majority. I want this zine to be an offering to gender variant kids who need to see themselves in print, to know that they are not alone, to offer comfort and hope. I want the zine to open the eyes and hearts of cis gender folks so they become allies. I also want it to open up dialogue between youth, parents and teachers. 

I keep this quote in mind when I’m writing curriculum and deciding what to teach for the year. Perhaps it will inspire you.

"When those who have the power to name and to socially construct reality choose not to see or hear you, whether you are dark-skinned, old, disabled, female, or speak with a different accent or dialect than theirs, when someone with the authority of a teacher, say, describes a world and you are not in it, there is a moment of psychic disequilibrium, as if you looked into a mirror and saw nothing.” ~ Adrianne Rich
