we-will-start-a-revolution-now asked: Heeeeeeey firts of all you are my inspiration and the reason as well as Banksy that I am planing to make my city in my personal museum. I love your drawings. I have found myself in your art and saved it. You truly inspire me to be a better and awesome femminist artist. Really in love with your art. Beatiful moon and good vibes.
It’s kind of nuts that you are mentioning my work along with Banksy’s in the same sentence, so thank you very much for that! It also makes me insanely happy that my drawings inspire you to make your own feminist art. Please turn your city into a feminist art museum. Send me pictures when you do! The world always needs more feminist art! <3
Anonymous asked: TW: SA/V I really need help. I am a female survivor of sexual assault and recently my partner told me that she has felt pressured with me in intimate acts... And I want to not exist anymore. The idea that I could do what was done to me to her.. I can't even fathom it. She seems so eager I don't know what I'm missing, she's engaging and I just ... I can't understand how I let myself get to this point with my first girl partner. I'm devastated. I can't even look at myself, I don't know what to do
Healing is a long, tricky, overwhelming process. Sometimes we think we are fine, then all of a sudden something happens that instantly renews the pain we thought we were over. I don’t know you, I don’t know your exact story and what you had to go through, so this is just a humble stranger’s opinion, but maybe there are still aspects of the assault you survived that are haunting you. Sometimes when we deal with pain for a long amount of time it eventually starts feeling normal, so normal in fact that it begins to seep into our daily lives and into our actions. Maybe your own trauma found it’s way into your relationship with your partner somehow, and although the pain is familiar to you, it probably isn’t familiar to her. I know that the last thing you ever wanted to do was to put someone else through what you went through, so please cut yourself a little slack here. Either you can hate yourself, or you can hate the true culprit: the person who assaulted you and is still haunting you. It is ok if you still aren’t over it yet. Being a survivor doesn’t mean that you have to completely get over your pain right away. As I mentioned before, healing is a process, so it is ok to forgive yourself for your mistakes and to ask for help when you start to struggle. As for your partner, keep talking to her, try to explain your feelings to her. I honestly believe that communication and honestly can get you through this.
Don’t give up, and don’t let the assholes win.
The next drawing I post is for you. <3
ssamantha-anne asked: Okay! so I know I can just ask you personally but I figured maybe other people are in my same situation& this post will help them as well. so here it goes- my best friend recently returned home from a year abroad, while there he fell in love, not only with a person but the city of London as well. He's having a very hard time adjusting to life back home& many nights he sits& cries- I know my just being there& my thoughts are helpful to him but is there anything I can say to put him more at ease?!
I am ashamed that it took me so long to get back to you. I hope that my answer is still relevant in some way.
This may not come as a huge surprise, if you take into account what I am doing with this tumblr, but I have often been that friend that people confide in, especially when they are going through traumatic life events. Over the years, I have done both a good and a bad job in this role. Sometimes I was not attentive enough or I became impatient and let my friends down, other times I was too attentive and let my friends rely on me too much to ease their pain and lost myself along the way. Being a good friend is always about balance, which is tricky to master (I still struggle a lot). One thing I have learned is that “you can’t save people, you can only love them”. According to tumblr, that is an Anaïs Nin quote, but I’m not quite sure. Regardless of who said it, the meaning is still true. You can be there for your friend but he will ultimately have to figure out how to heal on his own. Just know that you are doing the best possible thing for your friend right now by being there and by letting him know that his pain is valid and important. In times of pain, a little empathy can make all the difference.

Anonymous asked: hi! love your work. wanted to know if there's any way you could make your cases/skins available for the ipod classic?
Hi! Because I sell all my merchandise through Society6, I don’t have much say over what versions of ipods and iphones they make available. I think you can only get the ipod touch, and not the ipod classic. So Sorry!
Anonymous asked: Can you put the fluffy feminist furry and the feminist badass drawings on society? I would love to have them as phone cases:)
Yes of course. I added both of those drawings to my Society 6 shop here. You can get them as iphone cases, pillows, mugs, laptop skins, prints and more…
If you want the t-shirt versions please visit feministapparel at http://www.feministapparel.com/collections/feminist-creative
Thanks for supporting the arts! <3
yourmumatsix asked: This may be a very large ask, but do you know if phone cases would be available for iPhone 5Cs at any point? It's just I'd love a "his opinion does not define you" one, but have a C instead of the standard sized 5. Sorry to be a pain and no worries if it's not possible!
No problem at all. I adjusted my artwork to fit the 5C. You can order it here! Thanks <3
teenage-specimen asked: Could you please make the "Be Your Own Hero: Feminist Hero" illustration available on your store as a phone case? I would really like to buy it.
to-hum asked: I know you probably receive too many messages to reply to, but I just wanted to let you know how inspiring and wonderful I find your art! I'm so glad I found your tumblr, and as I write this message I am printing our some of your work to hang on my walls when I go to college as sort of "mantras". Thank you for your work and managing to capture many of my thoughts on paper and turning it into beautiful art! :)
Thank you so much for taking the time to write to me! It makes me so happy when people tell me that they can relate to my drawings and that they find different ways of incorporating them into their daily lives. I’m so glad my drawings are decorating your bedroom walls. <3
**To all of you who decorate your rooms with my drawings, feel free to share your bedroom walls pics with me and I will post them on my blog! Thanks!!
avvtumn asked: I struggle to express what your drawings mean to me (I've erased and retyped this message so many times). Harsh criticism, indecision, insecurities are constantly part of the lives of many women in the world today; and with some men acting all 'Alpha-male', it's hard to be a postmodern feminist. But I think your artwork expresses exactly what life can be like for some, so thank you for constantly making my day :)
Thank you so much for your super sweet message! I know what you mean, it is hard being a postmodern feminist, especially because so many people just don’t get it. That is why we have to stick together and encourage each other to keep being angry yet lovely in the most badass kind of way, no matter what anyone else says.
The next drawing I post is for you <3
