feminist heroes, #3: Nomy Lamm.
best fat/queer/disability punk rock activist and artist. her classic 90s zine “i’m so fucking beautiful” changed my life.
The revolution will be incited through my voice, my words, not the words of the universe of male intellect that already exists. And I know that a hell of a lot of what I say is totally contradictory. My contradictions can co-exist, cuz they exist inside of me, and I’m not gonna simplify them so that they fit into the linear, analytical pattern that I know they’re supposed to. I think it’s important to recognize that all this stuff does contribute to the revolution, for real.
Where’s the revolution? My body is fucking beautiful, and every time I look in the mirror and acknowledge that, I am contributing to the revolution.
