No more Facebook for Poly in Pictures

Source Website: Poly in Pictures

This article / blog post was discovered through our Commons project.

Yesterday Women, Action and the Media launched a campaign to prompt action from Facebook.

The gist of it is, they take down photos of women who’ve had double mastectomies and thus survived cancer, and they take down photos of women breastfeeding, both not-sexual in nature. But they allow groups that promote or joke about domestic violence and rape.

Nonbinary Stats

Nonbinary/genderqueer folk, do you feel like anonymously contributing to some stats about gender identity and expression?

I’m running a bit of an informal data-gathering thing to see how people express their nonbinary gender. I’ll publish the statistical results on my MxActivist blog in July 2013 in the form of graphs and charts.

Are you genderqueer/nonbinary and in the UK?

Do you use the gender-inclusive title Mx? Have you ever been told by some organisation or some individual or other that Mx is not a “proper” title?

Look no further, for you have found a PDF containing evidence of Mx being used by many many record-holding bodies, and even deed poll services and banks and such.

Here is a link to the scribd.com PDF viewing page: http://www.scribd.com/doc/137340953

Pretty odd: a second attempt

Source Website: Poly in Pictures

This article / blog post was discovered through our Commons project.

It’s been almost a month and I haven’t heard from Esmé, so these are once more available.

 

They are 75% wool, 25% nylon. They are not machine washable. They fit big and small hands. They took 7.5 hours to make. I think the yarn cost about £4 GBP. They are matching in shape and size and yarn type/brand, but one of them is purply and one is green-ish. They were made in a pet-free, smoke-free home.

“Forget Yourself” by Redfern Jon Barrett

Source Website: Poly in Pictures

This article / blog post was discovered through our Commons project.

Some time ago, in the middle of a ridiculous haze caused by autistic/domestic anxiety and depression, Red found me on Facebook through the Poly in Pictures page and sent me a message asking if I’d like to read his book. He spoke of queer and polyamorous themes, and I knew he meant it. I’m not that widely read so this is probably not a reliable generalisation, but most books I’ve read that make claims like this are… how can I explain this? I find that they exaggerate.

I’d like to send these handwarmers to someone. I’d also like some money. These two things are somewhat unrelated. (This is a bit of an experiment; I’m curious to see what happens.)

Deana just sent me a photo of her heart family’s comic all framed up. I feel all proud and appreciative and some other feels also.

 

Click here for the TwitPic post, and here for the original comic.

A peek into the search terms

Source Website: Poly in Pictures

This article / blog post was discovered through our Commons project.

For the curious/nosy, and were I not the creator I would be among you, here’s a screen grab of the search terms used to find Poly in Pictures since midnight (ie: the last 6.5 hours).

 

It is an entertaining list just because of one or two that I’ll mention in a mo. I’d type them out for accessibility but most of them are quite dull.

Cartoon fools – Wow, don’t hold back or anything there.

PiPification

This article / blog post was discovered through our Commons project.

Would you like to donate if it meant you got a little portrait of you (or someone else) in PiP style based on a photograph or description or something, d’you think?

I’ve just been and watched Amanda Palmer’s TED talk, which was very inspiring. I’d recommend it for any artists or anyone trying to sell things, really.
