My name's Nikki, but you can call me whatever.

This is my repurposed personal blog for all of my stuff. Sorry for the clutter. All of my art can be found in another blog. If it's not apparent I'm a raging intersectional feminist fangirl. I'm also an artist and am a writer, though my PTSD and depression keep me from doing much of either these days. I'm pinoy and a rape survivor, and both of these are important parts of my identity. I am extremely passionate about social issues and will not apologize for being so, anymore. Thanks for stopping by.

This comic is about how there are two sides to every story.

A guy insulting his ex to “compliment” you is always a red flag.

Because why go outside (gasp!) and get involved when you can just like and reblog posts from the comfort of your home.

Because sometimes you’re young, and can’t leave your area, or parents won’t let You get involved. so the only thing you can do is spread the message so someone who can help will see it. 

"Aaaand made a comic to make people feel bad about themselves, when I’m not doing anything either. Gee that was good use of my time." 

why are people starting to make comics on what they cant really saybecause they’re scared…but says it anyways in a drawing,they’re still gonna get backfire and messages on these dumbass shit,this is the same as that dumbass shark drawing

Also, note: online activism, while not as “active” as demonstrations and protests (do you have reliable transportation? Can you take time off from work? Are you physically or mentally able to make the trip and participate? Do you have the finances to be able to do this? are there an protests in your area?), there is now a GENERATION of kids being exposed to these discussions and theories about race and religion and sexuality and gender and ableism, that they were not hearing about previously.

We now have young girls openly celebrating each other and representations of themselves in media, when they’d be tearing each other apart just 10 years ago (Anyone remember mid-2000 fandom culture towards women? Remember “not like other girls”? I do. Shit was terrifying). We have PoC and trans people getting their voices heard when talking about their firsthand experiences.

Using the Internet as a medium, a BUNCH of kids and adults have learned new things about sociology that they wouldn’t have been exposed to otherwise.

All I am saying is, if it wasn’t for this website, I’d still be just as racist and transphobic and misogynistic and classist as I was when I was 13. I’d be a LOT worse. Don’t tell me that online activism doesn’t do anything. It teaches people and is readily accessible to most people and it encourages discussion. There’s always more that can be done, but don’t mark off online activism as lazy or unimportant.

And to the person who thought it was a good idea to make this comic, have you forgotten that if it wasn’t for social media like Twitter and Tumblr, we wouldn’t have any fucking idea what was going on in Ferguson in the first place?

Shut your fucking pie hole, you piece of shit.

Explaining your mental illness to others is a tough balancing act. You want them to believe you, but you also don’t want them to start treating you as subhuman because of it.

I wish it didn’t have to be like that.

See: the pressure to prove you’re disabled, but not too disabled.

Trans Guys | Bind Kinder 
The use of ace bandages for binding is not only extremely uncomfortable, its dangerous. Ace bandages contract around the ribcage, not allowing your ribcage to expand as you breathe, furthermore, putting you at risk for deformed ribs from prolonged use, as well as broken rib bones. Always use a binder, which is specifically designed for binding and shaping the chest. Can’t afford a binder? contact Aydian Dowling at point5ccclothing@gmail.com and get a binder for nothing more than the cost of shipping. 

for my brothers in need

Things I wish I’d known in high school. Guys seriously the ace bandages can do some serious damage, don’t do it. Huge thanks to whoever is at that email taking care of folks so kindly.

Boosting for this wonderful person’s email.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE spread this information and STOP DRAWING FANART/CREATING MEDIA THAT PORTRAYS USE OF ACE BANDAGES because not all trans people know this and will attempt to bind in dangerous ways if not given alternative methods!!

If you live in the Detroit area, please please please be careful. I don’t know if this is real or not but apparently there is some kind of “purge” happening tonight. Don’t leave your homes I’m begging you.

"Rapes by acquaintances, compared with strangers, were more likely to involve a single offender and multiple episodes, were less likely to be seen as rape or to be revealed to anyone, and were similar in terms of the victim’s resistance. In general, acquaintance rapes were rated as less violent than stranger rapes. The exception was rapes by husbands or other family members which were rated equally violent to stranger rapes but were much less likely to occur in a context of drinking or other drug use. In spite of these different crime characteristics, virtually no differences were found among any of the groups in their levels of psychological symptoms."

Stranger and Acquaintance Rape: Are There Differences In the Victim’s Experience?

"VIRTUALLY NO DIFFERENCES WERE FOUND AMONG ANY OF THE GROUPS IN THEIR LEVELS OF PSYCHOLOGICAL SYMPTOMS"

"VIRTUALLY NO DIFFERENCES WERE FOUND AMONG ANY OF THE GROUPS IN THEIR LEVELS OF PSYCHOLOGICAL SYMPTOMS"
