Batman Graffiti Art by Pete One
Earlier this month, artist Andy Warner illustrated a comic for the Center for Constitutional Rights, highlighting Lively’s exploits in Uganda. His comic, originally posted on the Huffington Post, is reproduced in full below. With the passage of the anti-gay law, the comic is more relevant than ever: according to Warner, now several of the people featured below “are fearing an imminent witch hunt.”
- Install new bathroom light
- Hang pictures on Stairs
- Get Nightvale poster framed
- Hang Nightvale poster (if possible)
- Blik things (hopefully finally)
- Go to the motherfucking bank like an adult
- Clean all the things (bedroom, hallway, kitchen)
- Finish the stair in the Hallway
- Find somewhere to fix camera lens
- Develop that film you’ve been meaning to develop for months
On the morning of October 3, 1991, I woke to the sound of people shouting, “Susan kills babies!” outside our bedroom window. “Susan kills babies!” I heard again. Must be a nightmare, I thought. I’m home. I am not at work. I am in my bed, right next to Randy. But I was awake. I was in my own bed. This was real.
This Common Secret, Susan Wicklund
I remember seeing a video OneThirdGone posted about her group protesting outside a doctor’s home. I rolled my eyes at it and thought of how irritating they were. But after reading about the struggles of Dr. Wicklund and all the harassment she’s endured (and I’m not even halfway through the book yet), anti-choice protestors now make me physically sick.
They barricaded Dr. Wicklund’s home - they brought a mobile home and parked it in front of her driveway, and giant cement-filled barrels blocked the entrance. They stalked her daughter at her school, they posted “Wanted” signs all over their town. They made it nearly impossible for her family to leave their home.
If you think clinic protestors are okay, then I’m going to need you to do some rethinking.
I have no qualms about just calling them terrorists.
Why? Citizens complain more, forcing officials to be more accountable.
