When I visited New York last year I read an article in a zine from a girl who prefaced her name with about seven adjectives. She was a “radical feminist punk vegan queer blah blah motherfucking blah” writer. And as I perused her article one side of me “aww-ed” at the cute idealism of pre-packaged youth, while the other side of me guffawed at the explicit self-stereotyping going on.
I am a radical queer. I have tattoos, piercings, and a mohawk. I use dental floss to sew patches on my clothes and I even silkscreen my own patches. I am an activist and I organize. I fight for freedom from oppression, peace, and equality. I am an anarchist, against all marriage, and against assimilation.
