First it was the 50th anniversary of the "pill" and Gloria Steinem went on some 'Merican show and made a nice joke about the femanisms. It was very nice. But what the eff was stupid Hilary Swanxx doing there? Full transcript here. (EDIT: SWANKKS PLAYED A FEMINIST ON TV ONCE. OHHHH.
MAKES SENSE That's ridiculous.)
THEN, I got notice of this zine publication take-over-the-world kind of thing. Another nicie. The one with the eyes closed used to own Revolution Montreal bike shop, now known as Bikurious on Amherst.
And obvs there was the seminal womyn-power-snl-takeovah. I'm fucking happy we're bringing the ANGRY back. (And also, this rumour about a gay lady being placed into the Supreme Court??)

I love these ladies and gents: licketysplitzine.blogspot.com ! But especially Sarah Beall.
For those that aren't familliar with the content of Lickety Split, give us a
Sarah Beall: Lickety Split is a pansexual smut zine dedicated to sex positive
expression and thought. Our goal is to make the masses cum with a diverse array
of writing, art, and photography that addresses the messy, sticky, and fun
subject of sex and sexuality. We emphasize consent and communication as the
pillars of sex involving two or more people, and we purposefully give our
models complete control over how they are represented in the zine. We want to
give folks the opportunity to challenge pre-packed ideas of what is sexy or
pleasurable or socially acceptable by creating their own images and narratives
according to their own unique turn ons. Also, we like to think of making smut
as a sexual practice/act in and of itself, whether it be naughty
self-portraiteur or any other art form.
You have become the newest Editor-in-Chief. Tell me about the recent
SB: Well, it has all been very exciting for me, since I've been a fan of
Lickety Split ever since its inception. I remember being 18 and Amber Goodwyn saying
to me that she was going to start a smut zine and my immediate reaction being,
"OMG I want to do that!" Then, I became a contributor and when it was
time for the torch to be passed, I was lucky enough to be there and say
"yes, I want to do this." It's a real honour to be working on such a
well-loved, much needed and respected zine.
have been some changes since I've taken of the reins,

Shawn Thompson is a pretty talented lady, aside from her being a colleagues of mine at the Mirror, she is also a doer of things and a blogger and also she has a funny laugh, and also I think she's gonna do big things.
This short documentary by Shawn Thompson is about La Centrale Galerie
Powerhouse and Feminism. La Centrale Galerie
Powerhouse is the oldest feminist art gallery in Canada. This video was not accepted into the CBC for a shorts program. BOO CEEB! Of course Kox & Kuntz thinks it's pure geniosity. Here is a link to the NFB (sorry but they are liars about the embed code, just admit you want your traffic redirected there, jerks!)
