SISTERS ARE FOREVER.

happy international women's day! i'll start with the good stuff. in honour of 101st international women’s day tomorrow, i have decided to donate 11% of all orders from vampire sushi distro for the rest of march to oxfam’s international women’s day fund since we didn’t get around to organizing our own tea party for it! here’s the rushed poster i made the other night for the tea party at the chatham oxfam..



though as per usual i have spent a large chunk of the day being grumpy at cisdudes going "what about international men's day?" *rolls eyes* (though i did manage to pop into town for distro post, buy a dress & a knitted miniskirt, and have a cup of coffee and some homemade cake at oxfam with the old ladies + a tammy annual from 1973 for zine stuffs) first of all it's not funny or clever, and it's the oldest 'joke' ever. and second of all besides all other days of the year essentially being dedicated to you lovely white cisdudes, if you did some simple googling you would know that international men's day is november 19th, so shut the fuck up. i may have told this to an old and quite dear friend from uni on facebook today but more politely. and also made a 2nd comment that i was VERY DISAPPOINTED IN HIM, though i deleted it straight after cos i'm a sissy and i hate confrontation, but unless he's disabled his notifications he knows. it felt kinda good calling him out because i spend SO MUCH TIME grinding my teeth at people and not saying anything because i dislike arguments. though mostly because i am bad at arguments and don't want to lose especially when i know for a fact i'm in the right but am unable to articulate my argument sufficiently to educate my adversary.

here's a pair of accurate donna noble gifs via the wonderful world of tumblr.




and here be a quick international women's day themed mix i cooked up.

I think it was good that you called out on yr friend. I would have done the same. I was surprised I didn't encounter any male friends having something to say about Women's Day too, and a little disappointed that none of said male friends acknowledged it in anyway at all.
