hey humans if you have binders you don't use anymore, you can send them here for rehoming: https://www.gendergear.ca/pages/binder-recycling
looks like they're out of stock of used binders so it'll be good to buff their inventory!
(i just unearthed a couple that are gently-worn and they just didn't suit me so i'm shipping 'em over)
I am finally back on the blog and the results of the No-Buy were...no good. 😕
"A No-Buy Month is a challenge, some people are going to fail...it was about starting over, and making sure we understood how much it cost for us to live."
I'd say "show this to all those liberals who just want the South to fall in the sea", but let's be honest, they don't care that the south is the blackest part of the country, they won't care about trans people either.
The South is home to the largest population of adults and youth in the US who identify as transgender.
Yall, real question.
How do you keep going and stay involved with social justice and freedom for all when you're just....exhausted?? Like, no one is actually holding the larger organizations accountable for their part in the refugee crises, the planet literally dying, or on racial justice.
How do you look at that and still keep going? Because I've done minimal work and I'm so tired already.
financial stuff, blog post
A little over a week in and I swear to the Divine I have never wanted to buy unnecessary shit more in my life than I have in the past week. BUT, I powered through!
Fighting internalized consumerism is extremely hard, and I think that's going to be the biggest learning curve in this project.
"Sometimes...it can be easy to forget how much money you are actually spending in any given month. Now...we have to be a little more aware of our financial situation at any given moment."
New blog post is live! I even talk about why a No-Buy challenge is good for anarchists and freedom lovers ;)
