I haven’t got anything new to upload at the moment so here’s my vulva illustration for the @vagina_museum in @stylistmagazine ?! 😍 Looking back at my NY’s resolutions I had set for 2019 I would have never imagined seeing my work in a printed magazine! It’s still so overwhelming. What a year this has been 💛
I believe in the power of transparency and honesty and sharing and now, more than ever, I believe in asking for support. When I asked for help to finish #RitasQuilt I was hopeful I could find a few people who might help me stitch some hexies. Geez did I learn a lesson in how willing people are to support, help, and show up! In the end over 150 people will have worked on this quilt to get it done in 3 months. What would have taken me the rest of my life WE were able to do in 3 months. And millions of people are following the story and deeply engaged in our work! Hell, I’m flying to LA today to be on the @kellyclarksonshow show! (Airs Tuesday the 17th so set your DVRs). It’s not easy to ask for help or support. Especially if you have been raised to “just handle it yourself and rely on no one - relying on others is weakness” OY! What garbage! We all rely on each other. No one does anything on their own. No one “succeeds” on their own. No one is “self made”. We are all a web of connection and community and I will never stop preaching the gospel of community and community support. No one does it alone. We need to build our communities of support and grow our power and strength through those communities. I am so grateful for this community. I want to meet you. I want to hang with you. I want to stitch with you. That’s what my next big idea is all about! How do we GROW THIS MAGICAL COMMUNITY IN REAL LIFE? Over 300 of you have invested in the Go Big our Go Home tour idea! In just a few days. That’s amazing! Now, let’s grow it! Can we get 100 community members to invest $10 today so we can do this thing? I believe in us. Link in bio. Venmo is @Shannon-downey ———————— Ask for a little help today! Give folks an opportunity to support you. It’s a gift. Give that gift. ——————————————— #badasscrossstitch#ritasquilt#tour#feminism#feminist#craftivism#craftivist#FUNdraising#chicago#fiberartist#communityorganizing#makers#embroidery#quilting#tinyshannon

"Change is coming, whether you like it or not.” ~ Greta Thunderberg.
Change is coming. I can feel it.
Youth activism, and adults who are mature enough to recognise this drive are going to change everything.
This is so soul warming.
The opposite of global warming.
This is societal change.
Next step- climate change! .

Let's talk about the use of womxn's bodies as masturbatory tools for men.⠀
Let me explain⠀
Using the bodies and orifices (mouth, hands, vaginas, and anus's) to stimulate ejaculation without taking into account the other person's sexual needs is not mutual sex. This is using a womxn's body as a masturbatory aid. ⠀
How many times have you seen a scene, whether that be in porn, or in a movie/television show where the womxn is penetrated then ejaculation happens and that is literally the end of the scene? ⠀
How many times have you personally had an experience where as a womxn, you felt obligated to perform oral or manual sex on a man, his climax happened, and yours was a mere afterthought or completely disregarded all together? ⠀
This is, quite literally, an objectification of womxn’s bodies. There is no mutual pleasure happening in situations like this. It is simply sex with the goal of ejaculation for the person with the penis.⠀
Before you jump to conclusions, I am absolutely NOT blaming men for this imbalance. ⠀
I am blaming the system that teaches us to value preventative sex education over exploring the facets of pleasure within the bounds of our relationships. ⠀
The system that focuses so much on condoms, and STI prevention that sexuality becomes devoid of mutual pleasure pleasure⠀
So how is it supposed to be apparent that the use of womxn's bodies for nothing more than the ejaculatory goals of men is wrong in any way?⠀ ⠀
It will continue to not be unless the womxn who are having these experiences with men, share this information. ⠀
It is up to womxn to explore our pleasure and become self aware of our orgasmic depth so we can share this with our partners⠀
It is up to us to demand our pleasure be deemed just as important as theirs⠀

There is no better way to celebrate woman’s rights the way we did last night (December 10th) and how far women have come and have make a huge impact in the today’s music.
I still can’t get over @jennifer.piazzapick and her beautiful voice and @nataliegroom for such an amazing talent . ♥️
Women were not allowed to compose music back in the 18th century.
Back through history women could only perform privately and just compose simple music with no complicated forms like symphonies. You either had to be a nun to at least try to🎼. @acfwashington
To learn why men do what they do, a reflection was needed. But in this image i found resemblance. That i am not too different from them. And ever since this realization, ive been lost. And now i give up. So i ask you now, Why do men do, what they do?
