From our Degenderettes art show, The door I still can’t fucking get into. by Dax Tran-Caffee, musician with Corpus Callosum and creator of the twice Eisner Award nominated Failing Sky online comic.

Tampons For Boys & Men (by Kian Smith and Sara Sherman) are Axe scented in sizes like .22, 9mm, and Magnum. Packaged in cigar cases to be, you know, manly. What are these all about?

Silver Sprocket teamed up with our favorite feminist-genderqueer bicycle gang, The Degenderettes, for an excessively interactive showing of art and installations at San Francisco’s Mission Comics on June 6th, 2015. Nailed above the presentation is a Degenderettes jacket, stained with the blood (menstrual or otherwise) of the San Francisco chapter’s ridership. We aren’t sorry about this probably being a health-code violation. I’ll do my [...]
