Liked: I really appreciated seeing all this shit talked about in a de-intellectualized way. Particularly good were the sections about defining consent, tutorial on 'active listening' and personal stories about different people's process of recovering from sexual abuse or trying to be supportive to those recovering from sexual abuse. Even if you have never experienced abuse, even if you don't think you know anyone who has experienced abuse (p.s. you do, you just may not know it), read this zine. ...more

Recommends it for: everyone. really. whether you read it in solidarity or because you're there, please read it.
This is the zine I most often recommend.

It is for people who have survived assault and abuse, and for people who know or will know a survivor. That's all of us.

Please read this, it'll make you a better lover, stronger friend, and help you heal.
this zine was recommended to me by a date and it totally changed how I was approaching being an ally to other survivors. I would advise anyone to read it in a heartbeat, though it may be tough on the eyes there is some small small type up in there.
very zine-ey, but it works so well for such an unfinished topic. same with that other zine, learning good consent. made me think about stuff i'd otherwise gloss over in life.
I have used this zine countless times, passed it on to friends, and even used it to make packets for a skillshare/discussion group I did years back.

I love it!!!!!!
I think this is the most helpful and important zine/book I've found on supporting survivors. I would recommend it to absolutely everyone.
