This zine is *amazing* Props to Josh for being self-effacing enough to consider his own privilage as a (primarily) straight, white guy, and how it affects others. Gives me hope. :)


So i made this zine from a journal entry that is now about two years old. it wasnt intended to be the interrogation of power and opression that a lot of people seem to describe it as, just a few thoughts on growing up with privilege. on one hand i think this zine is really inadequate if you are looking for a serious analysis of this kinda stuff, but on the other i think its a great introduction to the topic. either way, if you do get it and read it, write me a letter and i'll send you another zine that im working on that examines this kind of thing with a lot more complexity. - xo, josh
