Thanks to everyone who wrote me over the past month about their experiences with the first visibility challenge - I had responses that ranged from "That sounds dangerous." to "I've been looking to do something like this - thanks!" I'm glad that so many of you tried it, and thanks to The SexGeek, Andrea Zanin and various other queer friends for cross-posting and tweeting about the challenge, or posting about it here.
Now, *cracks knuckles* it's time for femme visibility challenge #2!
'Tis the season to be crafty and consumerism is in hyper-overdrive, so this month's challenge will be all about femme visibility stickers. It's simple: just make hot, fun, wonderful stickers that read: "A queer femme likes this." And then stick them on whatever you like - clothes, sex toys, books, shoes, people, food a certain bathroom stall where you like to make out...the possibilities are endless!
The stickers could be done on printer labels if you want. If you have a colourless printer, print 'em up and colour 'em in. If you're not computer-savvy or don't have access to a printer, make them by hand with markers or carve a potato stamp and dip it in ink like when you were a kid. There are a million ways to go about it! But, whatever you do, remember to take some stickers with you each day so you're always ready to point out the wonderful things that make your femme heart smile.
My guess is this challenge will be a little easier for the shy folks than the flirting assignment was The cool thing is that, by individualizing the stickers and making ones that represent how *you* do femme, we'll also get to see the diversity of femmeness amongst us.
Post pics if you can! I know I will!
