Don’t you walk away from me. You don’t know who you’re dealing with. Don’t tell me what I can’t do, ever! This is destiny. This is destiny. This is my destiny. This is – I’m supposed to do this, damnit! Don’t tell me what I can’t do.
Am Not Sad, I Am Not Sick is now available as a PDF for digital download.
"I Am Not Sad, I Am Not Sick: An Autobio Zine" debuted at Twin Cities Zinefest 2013. It is a 15-page black-and-white zine based on mental and emotional struggles of the author.
Here it is on tumblr. It’s $3 (or pay-what-you-want on Gumroad!). I’ve cleaned it up quite a bit and added grey tones to give the drawings a bit more depth. It’s a very personal piece and I hope you’ll consider picking it up.
This zine does include references to self-harm and suicidal ideation.
Thanks for supporting me!
some people need to understand this shit

Badder they are, the bigger the reward
Have I been watching too much TV shows lately? Probably.
I wanted to ask my mother if there were any pictures of us five (my parents, my two brothers and me) from a long time ago and I almost referred to us as “the original cast”. Which actually makes a lot of sense!
things I can’t imagine
- someone having a crush on me
- someone randomly seeing me and thinking ‘wow s/he’s cute’
- someone getting happy because I messaged them first
- someone thinking about me, in general
- someone wondering how I am
- someone finding me attractive
- someone doing something to try and impress me
- someone asking their friend on what to say to me
- someone wanting to get to know me
DEAR EMMA WATSON
Where was MY right to decide what to do with my body? It wasn’t in the room where my parents paid a doctor to cut the skin off my penis when I was a mere minutes old!!
I bet your clit and vulva are still intact.
Tell me again how oppressed you are by this patriarchy?
Please do not belittle female circumcision by comparing it to male circumcision.
Male circumcision is not done to oppress men or destroy their sexuality but for either religious or health reasons. Removing the foreskin does not prevent sex, or damage the penis. You were not genetically mutilated.
Female circumcision involves removing the clitoris, or the vulva, sometimes it involves cutting the inside of the vagina and sowing it shut so that it heals over. Sometimes all of the above. It is oppressive, it is always painful and often fatal, and is still practised in many countries around the world with the goal of oppressing women under extreme patriarchal regimes.
Emma Watson may not suffer from those regimes directly in the way you’re referring to, but she spoke very frankly about how she has had a very privileged life. She is using that privilege to stand up for those who are not as fortunate.
Tell me again how you are helping by making it about you?
People like this are honestly so awful lmao.
do you ever think about the fact that there are people who watch shows casually and just tune in each week without looking at spoilers or cast interviews
and then there’s us
