Alright. I’m about to talk politics here, so bear with me.
I’ve been thinking a lot about the Supreme Court and a lot of the bullshit they’ve been doing, and not just regarding Roe v Wade. They’ve trampled on Indigenous rights, told the EPA that they can’t do their job, and are now giving serious consideration to eliminating gay marriage and access to birth control.
Even if you think these decisions don’t affect you – they absolutely do.
I’ve mostly been silent on this on my blog and social media because I needed a more productive outlet for all this rage. I wanted to figure out what difference we can make beyond voting and riots.
That’s why I’m glad the ACLU has been working so hard. They actually blocked abortion bans in Kentucky, Florida, Utah, and Texas, and have filed a block in West Virginia. They have also been working hard on defending trans rights, among other civil liberties.
So, for the month of July, all proceeds from the sales of my prints and mini-printswill benefit the ACLU, so that they can keep up the fight. You can check out all the prints available in my Ko-Fi shop. The final tally will take place on July 31, and the donation sent on August 1. There will be screencaps for posterity.
I hope you can join me in supporting the ACLU! If you’re broke, spread the word about this fundraiser.
Thank you for your support, no matter how you show it.
Surprise! It’s a podcast! I’m pausing live streams for April to participate in Camp NaNoWriMo.
Camp NaNoWriMo is a writing challenge hosted by the same folks who run National Novel Writing Month. Here’s the difference: National Novel Writing Month is a challenge to write 50,000 words on a totally new idea. With Camp NaNoWriMo, you set your own goal.
So this month, I want to revisit – and rewrite – a story I wrote back in 2015, called The Uthers. Be sure to give this episode a listen if you want to learn more!
