News sites, when illustrating articles about mental illness, always seem to choose black and white stock photos of naked people bent over and clutching their heads, w their hair in their faces and privates tastefully obscured.


fun fact: these are the only photos that exist of mentally ill people.  cameras are unable to take pictures of us in color or with clothes on.  we have gotten in a lot of trouble with school yearbooks.

attention nonbinary and/or queer PoC!!



i need your help! a friend and i have decided to start a zine devoted to how PoC identities overlap with being nonbinary/queer. being mixed race, queer, and nb i’ve always felt a lot of discomfort and inbetweenness so i wanna start a project that focuses on those feelings! most preferred would be other nonbinary queer folks but twoc and tmoc who are queer will also be accepted in the project. this is intended to be a safe space to share experiences.

what i need from you is!

  • pieces written about your feelings about how your race and gender identity overlap (ie concepts of gender within your own culture, or feelings of not belonging/having to choose, anything you’d like!)
  • pictures? if you want of yourself that you feel capture your identity
  • pieces about specific issues faced by queer n trans poc like acceptance in your community, passing while non-white, finding representation, etc!!
  • basically anything you’d like to see in a zine about these overlapping identities, and please spread this post so i can get the contributions i need to get started!!

initially hard copies of the zine will probably just be distributed around my college campus, but if this actually starts to go somewhere and we can get donations started at some point in the future maybe i’ll sell hard copies online? who knows but yeah please spread the word and submit your stories and thoughts and feelings and a little about yourself to accompany your submissions.

thank u love u all!!!!!

okay i just re-read this and wanted to clarify/expand based on the responses i’ve already gotten!

welcome to participate in this project are poc who identify as queer, trans, or both! the project will be most centered around nb queer people, but even if you’re cis and queer or of a binary trans identity you’re welcome to contribute. also!! all forms of art are accepted as submissions as long as they are in some way linked to identity, meaning poetry, photography, and visual art are all really cool contributions we’re receptive to. y’all rock and thank you so much for getting excited about this w me :-)

there’s so many parents who don’t recognize that they are abusing their kids 

it is critical that children become aware of abuse from adults and that they recognize what abuse can look like, and that’s why I very strongly believe that schools need to start talking about parental abuse

otherwise, you get people like me who didn’t realize it was abuse until they’re 16-17 and already have PTSD

If somebody is investing time, resources, and energy into convincing you of your own worthlessness, that same somebody has revealed to you that they have a lot to lose if you don’t believe them. They’re protecting their own loss of power. Which means they perceive you as somebody who can take that power away. If somebody is putting in the work to knock you down, it’s because they’ve got something to fear about you if you’re standing up.

Also known by sea raft or by-the-wind sailor, are small cnidarians. These small creatures have no form of locomotion other than the sail. The small rigid sail projects into the air and catches the wind, which is how they get around.

Teeny tiny linkspam on aromanticism


Someone asked for a teeny tiny linkspam on aromanticism, so here goes!  And by “here goes” I mean “I fell into a rabbit hole of links for like two and a half hours and emerged covered in mud and clutching this linkspam; I am so sorry; you probably did not care this much.”

Let’s start with the basics:

Let’s talk about (a)romantics by Intimacy Cartography

Aromanticism 101 by anagnori

An Aromantic Primer by The Thinking Asexual

anagnori on how to be a better ally to aromantic people

What’s being aromantic like?

Becoming Loveless by chekhovandowl

swankivy on how she figured out she was aromantic

anagnori comparing aromanticism to being in a musical

…And Then What? on The Asexuality Archive

Jo on Experiences of Loving

Aromantic people in relationships (or not!):

A comic about being an aromantic person with a girlfriend by chekhovandowl

I found the right person and I’m still aromantic by A Fine Line

Jo on being an aromantic in a partnered relationship

What I’ve Missed Out on Being Single by Asexuality Archive

swankivy on never being #1

I don’t understand dating, so I’m getting married by Sciatrix

Aromanticism in the larger context:

Why aromanticism matters for the entire asexual community by anagnori

This whole conversation on commitment (post links to the rest of the conversation) is really interesting

Alloromantics vs. aromantics: the great divide by me (here on The Asexual Agenda)

Why I no longer engage the “Are aces queer?” question by ace-muslim (here on The Asexual Agenda)

anagnori on internalizing anti-aromantic messages

Obligatory nudges toward wtfromanticism, greyromanticism, and demiromanticism, as there is a lot of overlap (one of the above pieces is written by a wtfromantic)
