Muchacha Fanzine presents Issue #9 “Body Positivity”
This edition of Muchacha aims to challenge the mainstream white/heterosexual/able-bodied/cisgender-centric feminist movement of “body positivity.” The intention of this issue is to reclaim the term “body positivity” in a way that is inclusive of diverse voices and encourages reflectivity on how bodies can also be cause for pain, conflict, and/or healing.
This 40 page edition includes body positivity visual art, a letter to a hipster guy who would never date a vegan, a brown body at a punk show, gentrification, song lyrics, empowering poetry, body diversity in videos and tv shows, if barbie were real, body positivity from a queer, fat, trans*, chronically ill perspective, self-love collages, a roller derby story, a Southern Woman’s Bookstore announcement, and more!
If you haven’t heard, Muchacha Fanzine/the Denton Femme Fest organizers have teamed up to open the 13th feminist bookstore in the U.S.: Southern Woman’s Bookstore in Denton, Texas.All proceeds of “Body Positivity” will be donated to Southern Woman’s Bookstore. 
We are different from other bookstores, because we place an emphasis on honoring diverse books and zines written by women, people of color, and LGBTQ individuals, because we feel that marginalized voices, as these, need to be more widely represented and accessible to the community.

In a day in age where a white dude receives nearly 60 grand for eating a potato salad, it is especially important to foster a sense of community by donating and promoting to activist projects that go perpetually unsupported. 
We hope that the tumblr community can help change this by supporting a project created by a woman of color, a queer woman, and a queer woman of color. 
With that being said, the Denton, Texas Femme Fest Organizers/the creator of Muchacha Fanzine are excited to announce the biggest project we have ever taken part in. We have teamed up and have worked endlessly this summer to share this dream with you… FUNDRAISING TO OPEN UP THE NONPROFIT INDEPENDENT FEMINIST BOOKSTORE & COMMUNITY CENTER IN DENTON, TEXAS, SOUTHERN WOMAN’S BOOKSTORE!!! The bookstore would include diverse books & zines with an emphasis on women, POC & LGBTQ writers, artistic events (open mics, musical concerts, film screenings, art shows), consciousness-raising workshops, and more! 
We believe in the power of representation. A feminist bookstore and community center would help a young woman see her own story in print. It would help a person of color learn about their history and see a name like theirs on the shelves. It would help an LGBTQ individual locate themselves within a story, when they are often rendered invisible.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP OUR DREAM BECOME REALITY: 
Donate through our GoFundMe! (Each donation matters despite the amount. Seriously if every tumblr feminist donated $5, a radical activist bookstore and cultural community center would be able to exist and thrive and positively impact thousands of people in the South where a space like this is desperately needed)
Reblog this post! 
Spread the Word! Like us on Facebook! 
Check out our Website! 
Follow us on Twitter!
Donate books and zines! (Email us at SouthernWomansBookstore@gmail.com for a mailing address to send them or for any questions/comments/concerns.) 
Stay tuned for the Third Annual Denton, Texas Femme Fest Nov 22, location TBA. Femme Fest this year will be benefiting Southern Woman’s Bookstore. We are currently looking for bands and artists to join our Southern Grrrl Revolution.
In a world where women, POC, LGBTQ projects are time and time again unsupported, please please please consider being involved in the preservation of our knowledge, activism and art!!!
Tumblr Community, I double dare you to support small town grrrl activism and reblog this. Let’s shoot for one million reblogs.

Stupid bitch the only thing women are good for is fucking and blowjobs and it's about time you figured it out. Fuck feminism stupid ass hoes

With that perspective, you won’t have to worry about women at all because it’s unlikely you’ll experience either of those.

Don’t forget to go “like” Southern Woman’s Bookstore on Facebook and share our project with your friends!

I'm not a student or teacher, just a sleepy kitty cat, but I'd be so down to read your research if you shared it. Congratulations, that is SO awesome.

Well then I’ll absolutely do my best to hunt down a scanner for my non-student/teacher followers. :o) Thanks again!!

WAY TO ROCK THE FUCK OUT OF GRAD SCHOOL!!!!!
