You’re not alone there. Nobody agrees with pollution, but there are few things our society uses that don’t become pollution at some point.
Firstly, bill posters may be legal but they’re no better for the environment than other paper + tape/glue sign after they’re torn down.
Secondly, every girl that took part in this project is a “Tumblr feminist”. Everyone united via Tumblr and Facebook over our mutual desire to do more than just type about gender politics. We all use the internet to support grrrlVirus and feminism, but chose this one day to spread the message to people who don’t visit our Tumblrs and have never heard of grrrlVirus before.
This is not the same as promoting a band. Bands play shows and therefore have platforms from which to send messages and hand out flyers (which, by the way, are just as damaging to the environment as the posters we stuck up), but there are very few feminist events held in a city like Melbourne (speaking of which, this is coming up in a few weeks!) for us to share a message. And how many people who can benefit from being exposed to a feminist agenda do you think would attend an event like that? A lot less than the amount that saw our posters that day, I can assure you.
Saying “the posters will just get torn down” is just like saying “the flyers will just end up in the trash so why bother handing them out?”; the content on those posters or flyers still matters to the person sticking them up or handing them out, even if only one person sees it before it’s thrown away.
And if that one person reads the message and then realises that saying they will “sound like a tranny” because they haven’t had enough sleep is fucked up, then I’m fine with a little polluting.

Like a splash of Andy Bernard with yourSaturday Night Live? Good news, then: The Office andHangover star Ed Helms will host the comedy sketch show for the first time on May 14.
Naturally, his appearance coincides with the May 26 release of The Hangover Part II, which also stars Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis.
Paul Simon will provide the music on the night that Helms hosts.
It takes a lot of work. I’m super high maintenance and my morning ritual is similar to Joan Crawford’s in Mommy Dearest.
Here is the complete saga that is Jake and Amir: H.R. Guy. Now with bloopers!
and you wake them up, need to be told to clean up after yourself and generally treat them like they’re your parents (ie you put them in a position in which their equal—you—becomes someone they need to look after), they resent you.
Totally forgot Hedwig died. Then it happened. And I cried. So unnecessary.
I went to the house my friends Jim and Lucy are house-sitting/cat-sitting and Lucy made roast lamb and heaps of vegies and it was great because all my fam-fam is 2 states away and Easter’s the big holiday when I’m not with them eating chocolate I didn’t buy myself. Lucy and Jim laugh at my jokes and made me feel better about not being with my mumma.
Then we went to The Fox and Jim played a show and we had lots of beers and Lucy’s friend from California made me feel psyched about moving. Iasha came and a bunch of us played Balderdash and when we left I was winning (rookie luck/I’m the best). I bought discounted easter chocolate and a $3 organic avocado and came home to make gyoza, watch Louis CK’s Hilarious, eat ice cream and write in my journal (journalol).
Have I mentioned how much this Easter break is the best?
- My last day = drinks with work people, burritos and watching Paul Kelly + Bob Dylan with Anton
- Friday = making green tea macarons and going to a house party to say goodbye to my buddy Andrew
- Saturday = 14 hours still at said house party, then ordering over $50 of Domino’s with my housemate, watching Sister Act and sleepin’
- Today = having Easter lunch with my buds because my family’s interstate + an afternoon gig in Collingwood
- Monday = feasting on dumplings for Maddi’s birthday + watching Talking Funny with Andrew before he leaves
- Tuesday = filming Bronny (@bon-bon), Ciera (@cierawrrr) and Zoe (@cutselvage) for my doco.
