This collage is my comment on last week's EU elections, where nazis and fascists were voted into the parliament in huge numbers. If you follow my personal profile on Facebook, you will have seen that not only am I very engaged in this question and in the fight for an equal society for all, but also personally affected as I am a part of the trans community, whose members are on the nazi's lists of people to exterminate. Being genderqueer isn't a choice, it's how I was born, and for me standing up and taking the fight isn't a choice either. It's either that or letting them win and stop existing. While many of you actually do have a choice in whether or not to get involved in this battle for equality, freedom to express who you are and a society free from racism, I sincerely hope that you are on my side. Because in this case the old saying is very true; you're either with us or against us. I'm ending this post with a quote by George Orwell, and that is all I have to say here about the subject so I am closing the comments for this post. However, feel free to comment on Facebook, just know that I will remove any prejudice or oppressive statements!
Monday Mix, one day late... Why does the year always start off with a hysterical rush? And why are all the design fairs happening at the same time? I am in the middle of arranging a blog tour taking place during Stockholm Design Week, which leaves me no time to cover either Formex, Cologne or Design Trade... Luckily, lots of other bloggers are doing that, so we can all still our curiosity anyway. It's so nice to see all these new products and brands being launched now!
Yes! Finally a week with some free time to catch up on all the projects laying around half finished. Everything from blog posts and emails to birthday presents and art walls will get some well needed time and attention this week. After a long sunny summer and an autumn that started off like a whirlwind, it feels great to finally have some time to catch up!
