Content That Changed My Activism

Recommendations for articles, videos, books, comics, or other media 

that had a profound impact on my activism and awareness of the issues

other people face.

CN: chronic illness, police brutality, racism, mental illness, medical neglect, forced stay at mental institution. 
 

Note: This blog post heavily references a specific article that goes into far more detail of the above topics than this one does, in addition to a number of other heavy topics such as sexual assault, addiction, and domestic abuse. The article referenced does not include a content note.

Three or four years ago, I somehow came across an article that had a tremendous impact on me, o...

Today's guest post is part two of Violet Carson's "Wealth with Virtue" series about the process of converting capitalism into business practices that fit their identity, life structure, and ethics.

CN: Objectification, sexist slurs, sexuality, body image, racy imagery
CN for linked article 1: nudity
CN for linked article 2: sexism, sexuality, mention of rape

In feminism, bodies are a touchy subject. There’s a lot of baggage around how women’s bodies are viewed, used, and treated, as well as our relationship with our own bodies. In addition, all of that baggage is influenced by things like race, class, body type, and ability. This shit is complicated.

CN: (for the featured thread) sexism, misogyny, sexual assault, disability, suicide. 

Periodically I will do posts that I call, “Content That Changed My Activism,” or CTCMA for short. These posts will focus on articles, videos, or other types of media that influenced my activism and awareness of social justice in a powerful way. 
 

For this post, I wanted to focus on an incredible compilation of posts assembled by Olivia K. Lima and Timid Robot Zehta: a thread from MetaFilter about emotional labor...
