Look, I know you get out what you put in but if what you got out was "it's not worth it *so don't bother*" then maybe I need to work on this.

I want this as a rather sizable and framed wall print, what do?

Suffer, unfortunately. It's sized for the half page and won't scale very nicely.

Anyone know if this guy is still around? I found this in my layout doc and would love to include it in 2020 if I can get permission.

I had an intense tl;dr reaction to this post, which isn't an attack but an important critique when you're talking about public facing pamphlets.

Some advice from your friendly neighborhood Queen Bitch of Flyering

You have less than a second to catch your audience's attention. Bold titles that tell your audience exactly what you have to offer are key. Question titles were in fashion for a long time, but are now less effective.

Have something to offer. No, I'm not talking about a cheese sandwich, I mean something actually useful to deliver. If they have no buy in, they will not read your shit.


Bite sized chunks only. You are here to get people to read what you're saying, not to improve their overall reading skills. Condense whatever you can, and break up the stuff you can't into manageable pieces. Format more to visually break up longer paragraphs. Reader fatigue is not your friend.

What Doc said

I have a friend who is constantly coming to me with "okay is this problematic?" questions, that he genuinely wants answered and he actually listens and engages and passes the information on to other people in his circles. It's the OPPOSITE of labor to talk with him, even when he's not the wokest guy in the room, because it's good faith and we have a lot of trust in each other.

Its also worth asking the question "where is this energy best put to use?" Because, frankly, saving nazis from themselves is less worthy a cause than making sure enough brown people have access to the voting booth that politicians just stop listening to nazis. I do not want to put too much energy into making a world where we continue to listen exclusively to white people, but the white people are nicer. That's a personal choice, and I don't spend time shitting on those trying to fight fascism in the hearts of whites, I just recognize it's work and I'd rather work elsewhere.
