While Fuckin‘ (A) and Support New York were collaboration to build a workshop on feminist communication, consent, interpersonal dynamics, and strategies to work on healing from abuse, we realized that there was no way to fit everything we wanted to discuss into the limited workshop time we had. So this little companion booklet was created to be a guide for the workshop, and since then has grown into the zine you’re holding. This zine is divided into sections on Language, Communication, Boundaries & Consent, and we end with some Activites & Resources.
By Cindy Crabb
In a time when sexual assault and abuse are an increasing problem; even in so-called radical and punk communities, and when most women have been sexually abused in one way or another, Cindy Crabb (Doris Zine) brings us a document showing ways to prevent sexual violence and support survivors of sexual abuse. The zine helps to define consent, some letters that Cindy has received, listening, talking about sex, power dynamics, comics by Fly, and much more!

My Edge Is Anything But Straight
Towards A Radical Queer Critique Of Intoxication Culture
“I’ve always felt ambivalent towards sXe identity, though, a major reason being that I also identify strongly as queer. It’s not that I think the two identities are necessarily incompatible, but they seem to have an uncomfortable relationship. On the one hand, I haven’t felt much space to be my queer self in most punk/ hardcore scenes, and the hyper-masculine reputation of sXe definitely turns me off. On the other hand, I’ve faced a lot of exclusion within queer scenes for my sobriety. Continue reading My Edge is anything but straight
Dismantling the Boy’s Club
This zine is aimed towards men within the anarchist space to explain how patriarchy works and men’s role in maintaining it, both within the anarchist space and in the larger world. There are essays explaining patriarchy, discussing gender, and sexism in the anarchist space. Along with this, there is a helpful list of terminology and definitions, tips for starting a group for men against sexism, and a detailed questionnaire designed to push men towards exploring how patriarchy manifests itself in their lives. It’s one of the better and more recent zines on the topic.
