On/Off Her Way Home

by Wen Wen

That meteoric stones have rolled over

An establishing shot, takes only one flash

Thinking of you, murmuring to you,

Until some tears run dry, turning reddish

Dipping upon a dream (many nights)

Once thinking of you, she is

Terfism is White Distraction: On BLM, Decolonising the Curriculum, Anti-Gender Attacks and Feminist Transphobia

by Alyosxa Tudor

When I hear the word ‘cunt’ (or in German, the word ‘Fotze’ for that matter) as a slur it hits me. It is one of the forms of verbal abuse that gets to me. In the UK, ‘cunt’ is widely used as a misogynist term for women and other non-guys, but also it seems to […]
