One of my biggest fears is that my straight girl friends will just suddenly stop being my friends because they are all scared I have crushes on them. I don’t.
This is a message to seduce you
This is drawing number 75. Halfway through! I’m going to get a lil cute, and maybe a lil scary. Totoro Bonifacio. Nuff said.
The countdown continues. Bonifacio 150 on 11.30.13.
PS: I can’t believe Fernando Argosino and I have done 75 of these, and we still have 75 to go…

Y’ALL. TOTORO BONIFACIO. I’M DYING.
ALL-AMERIKAN BOI GIVEAWAY - UPDATED
(cis males need not apply)
so, i used to be able to give my clothes away to my younger brother, but he has long since outgrown me. i accumulate, pretty quickly, lots of clothes that allow me to live out my boi fantasies (delusions perhaps) because since as long as i can remember, my parents have always let me dress however i wanted. i know not everyone has been afforded that freedom, i cannot imagine that kind of familial constraint. so instead of giving them to goodwill, where they will be dispersed and maybe sold to some dudely dudes, i would like to give the lot to a non-cis male qpoc that wants to live out their boi fantasies as well, but, maybe, hasn’t accumulated the wardrobe that i have. i’ve only recently begun to analyze my fashion choices through a political lens, and find that they are a significant part of my politicized identity. so i want to include my zine (check it out here if youve never heard of it) and two posters (you may wish to exclude the posters if you are male and/or straight :p) and then also 10 copies to your distro/zine library of choice, donated in your name. i regularly supply a few distros already (like mend my dress press and brown recluse zine distro.)
reblog this with some commentary- whatever you want. i will be reading them as means to judge the winner. i’m not expecting many notes, so i’ll let this run for a month- i’ll make the decision dec 7, 2013

I am a queer API lady. And as a queer api lady, I was framed to be passive and submissive and not burdensome. I was taught to get what I needed alone, not ask for what I needed.
But, when I started doing organizing work with POWERFUL woc, they taught me to rid myself of scarcity. If there is care in our communities, there is more than enough to go around. Now, I must think in abundance. There is an ABUNDANCE of resources around me, I just need to ask for the support. My requests are not a burden, and my requests are not too much. They are what I want, and that is valid.
This is stuff that I want. And that is okay. I would like to own a nice jacket and hi-tops. Like… bro that’d be dope.
