2015 Social Justice Kittens Calendar

2015 Social Justice Kittens Calendar | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it
NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER! Shipping mid-November 2014.

LiartownUSA is proud to offer a full-color, glossy, 12” x 12” wall calendar, painstakingly crafted to honor and celebrate our bravest, most productive modern heroes: ONLINE SOCIAL JUSTICE ACTIVISTS.

What began as an imaginary calendar on a blog post is now the first Liartown artifact to respectfully and consensually enter the real world. Hailed as “the absolute best cat calendar!” by none other than Jezebel.com, this impressive calendar showcases 12 absolutely precious kittens, each carefully selected through a grueling audition process. Unlike bland, privileged garbage kittens chosen for nothing more than shallow good looks, Social Justice Kittens radiate fierce strength in the face of untold adversity, and all are gifted with a dazzling array of genders and orientations to go with their tiny, oh-so-kissable faces! THE STATUS QUO WILL NEVER FULLY ACCEPT THESE KITTENS!

After thousands of years of cis-het, patriarchal BULLSHIT, here’s a calendar that DARES YOU to speak truth to power. A calendar which boldly announces to the world that you aren’t going to sit back and let others speak for you. A calendar that holds you up high so others can see you’re able to stand proudly on your own. Here at LAST is a calendar that urges you to lean in really close and actually drink the sweet, pathetic tears RIGHT OFF YOUR OPPRESSORS’ STUBBLED CHEEKS!

Each month features a charming kitten professionally photographed in a heroic pose appropriate to a small cat defiantly speaking out on the hottest social justice issues of the day. A sassy, challenging declaration erases any doubts about each cat’s passionate rejection of the dominant paradigm.

In the end, the choice is simple: financially support the ideals embodied by this treasured, unique gift, or refuse to purchase a copy and become one of those hateful fake allies who actively embrace injustice and murder.

Nadia Kamil's Feminist Burlesque Routine Is Both Deadly Serious And Utterly Hilarious (VIDEO) | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it
A tip of the hat (and a twirl of the tassle) to comedian Nadia Kamil for this piece of live comedic joy: a feminist burlesque act. It all kicks off around 1 min 45 seconds - but make sure you watch Kamil's introduction to the routine, too.
