Miles de personas se reunieron este 8 de octubre para exigir a los tres niveles de gobierno la presentación de los 43 estudiantes normalistas desaparecidos el pasado 26 de septiembre en la ciudad de Iguala, Guerrero.
Familiares de la víctimas, grupos de estudiantes, organizaciones de la sociedad civil y sindicatos marcharon del Ángel de la Independencia al Zócalo capitalino para exigir, además del regreso de los jóvenes desaparecidos, la renuncia del gobernador de Guerrero, Ángel Aguirre Rivero, así como castigo para los responsables intelectuales y materiales de los hechos.

So one of my best friends Jessie is relatively new to the Tumblr world. She’s a badass mixed race feminist surviving in the South who wrote the amazing piece “To the Hipster Guy Who Would Never Date a Vegan,” which is featured in Muchacha’s 9th issue "Body Positivity."

Here’s us at a punk show in Denton, TX (she’s on the left). Anyway it would be rad of you if you could show some love by checking out her tumblr and following her here: http://feministingsoutherngirl.tumblr.com/ 

Thanks and love y’all!

Femme Fest will also be having a BOOK/ZINE DRIVE this year for Southern Woman’s Bookstore. Please donate any used/unused books. We prefer books and zines written by or about women, people of color, and LGBTQ folks.

Even if you cannot attend Femme Fest, we still accept book/zine donations via mail! We are also looking for visual art created by female-identifying artists to feature in our silent art auction. Please contact us at SouthernWomansBookstore@gmail.com for a mailing address to donate books, zines, and/or visual art.

THE QUEER FEMININITY PROJECT

Calling all femmes with pens!

Maybe you grew up being teased by the other kids for being a boring old girly-girl. Maybe you’re tired of “brainless bimbo” and “pretty princess” stereotypes. Maybe you tried being more like the boys, and just didn’t get what’s so great about it. Maybe you don’t understand why people dressed in skirts and flowery dresses are not supposed to be loud and proud—you kick butt, whether you wear boots or stilettoes. Maybe you’re sick of the assumption that “feminine” equals “addicted to fashion and beauty treatments”. Maybe you’re a feminist wondering what your femininity means to you—because you sure don’t agree with the way society defines it. Or maybe you’re that guy, the one who’s been mocked for being feminine his whole life and doesn’t see why “You’re such a girl!” is a bad thing. Maybe you thought you had transcended mainstream society’s unwritten laws of gender and restrictive definitions of femininity when you embraced your queerness—and suddenly you found yourself in a parallel framework, dealing with the same old  ideas painted in new words.

Maybe you thought: Oh hells no. This ends here.

Accounts from all over the world are beginning to trickle in about sexism present in queer communities; preliminary research suggests as many as 60% of feminine-presenting female individuals of any sexual orientation experience femmephobia. The world seems to have let out a collective sigh: it’s time to talk about how we relate to one another within our communities as well as without.

But that’s the world. We’re interested in you.

We’re charting this conversation as it applies to South Asia—our stories, our lives, our problems, and our triumphs. Can we critique communities that are already under threat without being declared traitors? How do we forge an authentic identity when so many of us are rendered invisible by both society and our communities? How do we define ourselves in the face of such great pressure to conform to someone or the other’s idea of acceptably traditional or acceptably radical? Can a borrowed vocabulary communicate our most intimate thoughts and feelings? Is it possible to live a South Asian, femme, and queer life—in our own image, on our own terms?

We live in a world of labels. Some of them are handed to us before we even know what they mean. And others we wear proudly, the hard-won battle scars of our struggle to name ourselves.

But one thing is for sure:

You’re here, you’re queer, and you’ve got a story to share. Tell it to us.

Muchacha Fanzine presents Issue #9 “Body Positivity”

This edition of Muchacha aims to challenge the mainstream white/heterosexual/able-bodied/cisgender-centric feminist movement of “body positivity.” The intention of this issue is to reclaim the term “body positivity” in a way that is inclusive of diverse voices and encourages reflectivity on how bodies can also be cause for pain, conflict, and/or healing.

This 40 page edition includes body positivity visual art, a letter to a hipster guy who would never date a vegan, a brown body at a punk show, gentrification, song lyrics, empowering poetry, body diversity in videos and tv shows, if barbie were real, body positivity from a queer, fat, trans*, chronically ill perspective, self-love collages, a roller derby story, a Southern Woman’s Bookstore announcement, and more!

If you haven’t heard, Muchacha Fanzine/the Denton Femme Fest organizers have teamed up to open the 13th feminist bookstore in the U.S.: Southern Woman’s Bookstore in Denton, Texas.

All proceeds of “Body Positivity” will be donated to Southern Woman’s Bookstore. 

We are different from other bookstores, because we place an emphasis on honoring diverse books and zines written by women, people of color, and LGBTQ individuals, because we feel that marginalized voices, as these, need to be more widely represented and accessible to the community.

Moving from the self & towards the collective through “Southern Woman’s Bookstore”

I was asked an interesting question, how I came up with the name Southern Woman’s Bookstore. I feel that it was sort of a way to reclaim what it means to be a “Southerner”. This land was once Indigenous and Mexican. As a proud Latina and Texan, I’m tired of people thinking all Texans are conservative. Yeah, we might not live in NYC, LA or other huge cities, but there are so many radical people living in the South doing awesome things and we do not reflect the conservative lawmakers that run our states. I truly believe with all my soul that Southern Woman’s Bookstore & Community Center can offer a safe space for people to unite through their knowledge and cultural production. 

I want to express my deepest gratitude to everyone who has supported us thus far. It’s not an easy process to put yourself out there and fund-raise, but I keep the community in the front of my mind. I’m willing to compromise and give all my effort into this for the sake of the collective, so that I can move beyond myself and inspire community-building and artistic representation among women, people of color, LGBTQ individuals and allies. 

Like Gloria Anzaldúa talks about during the fourth stage of “Conocimiento” [the call…el compromiso…the crossing and conversion] She says, “In the fourth space, a call to action pulls you out of your depression. You break free from you habitual coping strategies of escaping from realities you’re reluctant to face, reconnect with spirit, and undergo a conversion” (545). I am ready to ‘take action’ and don’t think I’ll stop until the day I die.

Texas Grrrl Activists to Open 13th Feminist Bookstore in the U.S. 

In a day in age where a white dude receives nearly 60 grand for eating a potato salad, it is especially important to foster a sense of community by donating and promoting to activist projects that go perpetually unsupported. 

We hope that the tumblr community can help change this by supporting a project created by a woman of color, a queer woman, and a queer woman of color. 

With that being said, the Denton, Texas Femme Fest Organizers/the creator of Muchacha Fanzine are excited to announce the biggest project we have ever taken part in. We have teamed up and have worked endlessly this summer to share this dream with you… FUNDRAISING TO OPEN UP THE NONPROFIT INDEPENDENT FEMINIST BOOKSTORE & COMMUNITY CENTER IN DENTON, TEXAS, SOUTHERN WOMAN’S BOOKSTORE!!!

This bookstore would be the 13th feminist bookstore in the nation and it would include diverse books & zines with an emphasis on women, POC & LGBTQ writers, artistic events (open mics, musical concerts, film screenings, art shows), consciousness-raising workshops, and more! 

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP OUR DREAM BECOME REALITY: 

  • Donate through our GoFundMe! (Each donation matters despite the amount. Seriously if every tumblr feminist spent 1 minute of their time to DONATE $5, a safe radical activist bookstore and cultural community center would be able to exist and thrive and positively impact thousands of people in the South where a space like this is desperately needed)
  • Reblog this post! 
  • Spread the Word! Like us on Facebook! 
  • Check out our Website! 
  • Follow us on Twitter!
  • Donate books and zines! (Email us at SouthernWomansBookstore@gmail.com for a mailing address to send them or for any questions/comments/concerns.) 

Stay tuned for the Third Annual Denton, Texas Femme Fest Nov 21, Femme Fest this year will be benefiting Southern Woman’s Bookstore. 

In a world where women, POC, LGBTQ projects are time and time again unsupported, please please please consider being involved in the preservation of our knowledge, activism and art!!!

Tumblr Community, I double dare you to support small town grrrl activism and reblog this. Let’s shoot for 100,000+ reblogs.
