It´s the key to networking between the oppressed people!

Do you feel part of a (grrrl or general) zine community or network and what does it mean to you?
No, not besides sistersdistro.tk.
Problems in personal unequal relationships. It is so hard to deal with sexism when there are emotional bounds involved...
What do you think about feminism today? How would you explain what feminism is to someone who has no idea what it is?
Feminism is standing up for who you are, in a society that pushes you to be everything but yourself.
What would a “grrrl”-friendly society look like in your view? How do you think society might be re-thought and transformed to come closer to an “ideal” world for women, grrrls and queer folks? Do you have any suggestions for the development of women/grrrl/queer-friendly policies?
I think separatism is an important part of our work towards equality. We need to isolate our problems with sexism and find out what our final goal is, to be able to work for a better society. When we have done that, we really need those few good boys for making it together. I think everyone can and should work for a society without oppression, but the oppressed groups must lead it all. We need to have an open mind and be prepared to even face the oppressing parts in ourselves.
What are some of your personal wishes/visions/ideas/plans for the future, if you like to share them?
Keep my mind open considering my attitude towards other yet still put my sisters first!
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
