a 12-page black and white zine, assembled with spite. this is the sequel to WHEN YOUR BODY IS NOT YOUR OWN. it's about frustration with liberal trans acceptance narratives and the pressure to tell positive narratives. poems and drawings.

"what have we gained, now that libs think its okay to be yourself;
its okay to be poor; its okay that there are no jobs; its okay that all your friends are disabled with not enough;
it’s okay to pass around the same five bucks;"
