Gamma Rabbit T-Shirt Donation Update
Posted on April 18, 2013 Posted by John Scalzi 6 Comments
For those of you who ordered Gamma Rabbit T-Shirts, you’ll be pleased to know that today I made a $300 donation to RAINN, that amount being my cut of the t-shirt profits. RAINN, in case you don’t know, is the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network, dedicated to helping those who have been sexually assaulted It’s a serious organization helped by a silly shirt, and I thank those of you who picked up one. Wear yours with pride.
And for those who are wondering, yes, I still have plans for the Kirby Crow Gamma Rabbit design, with RAINN once again the intended recipient for any profits. More on that as it develops (probably a little later in the year because I’m coming up on my touring season).
Hey, I just came across this for the first time yesterday, and thought you (and your readers) might be interested: http://m.guardiannews.com/lifeandstyle/the-womens-blog-with-jane-martinson/2013/apr/16/everyday-sexism-project-shouting-back
Excellent. I wore mine to Ad Astra a couple weeks ago.
I wore my Earth-1 Gamma Rabbit T to see They Might Be Giants a week or so back. For once, I did not feel outgeeked by anyone in the crowd.
I have to wait?!
Eh, it’s totally worth it.
fyi, RAINN frequently operates through local affiliates, and unfortunately, some of those affiliates refuse to offer services to transgender and/or transsexual women. (http://kiriamaya.tumblr.com/post/2361669015/snarkysmachine-sadydoyle-fyi-rainn-partners-with)
Here is a great list of organizations which provide support to rape victims and survivors, and are trans*- inclusive: http://www.questioningtransphobia.com/?p=3512
I’m looking forward to the Kirby Crow t-shirts!
Received mine yesterday. (Yes, I was one of those whom the reminder triggered “CRAP I NEED TO ORDER THIS.) It’s gorgeous.
(If/when the Kirby Crow version comes out – as it were – I’m going to be pretty well locked-in for daytime convention wear. Those two plus the classic Frank Miller/Comic Book Legal Defense Fund shirt – “Good girl. One more and you’ll be SAFE” – will account for most cons’ span.)
