a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Hey! Im in the midst of making my first zine first issue: Menstruation; Liquid Sexism.
I am after some tales from males
about either experiences with menstruation, sexism, or feminism.
the written word is fine aswell as art or poetry.
deadline is June15th
The title came after 2 weeks of incredibly tendr breast (my bodies way of letting me know ill be bleeding soon) then the day the bleeding started i had cramps so bad i couldnt stand up straight or even poo it hurt so much than when the bleeding actually started i had lower back pain to rival any back pain ive ever experienced.
And this is my experience every month.
I was talking to my husband and jokingly said periods are sexist, god is sexist (im an athiest) than my husband replied liquid sexism. And this is where the title came from.
So the zine is basically going to be dealing with womens experience with sexism, bad period experiences, feminism and just being a women. Ill also be included an article about mooncups and how to make reusable pads.
some poetry about sexual experiences and masturbation
And i thought it would be interesting to have some stories from man who have dealt with sexism towards women aswell as their experiences with feminism and i would love some articles about when man first heard about womens menstruation and how they feel about it then and now. I dunno whatever the title inspires in you.
