Radical Femme has received the following report and request - please help out!
"I have a very close friend called Samie Carvalho who is a trans woman. She had a page on facebook where she used to post comics of a character she created called Sasha, who was a lioness with a mane. A cute metaphor, that she used to bring some consciousness about the difficulty that trans people have everyday.
For some time now, her page has been reported to facebook by transphobic feminists, and yesterday they managed to end it. Today, she saw that facebook cancelled her page, supposedly because of pornography. But there was not pornography at all, except for a poster she drew for the Slut Walk in Rio de Janeiro that showed Sasha (the lioness) showing her breasts. But when she thought she could have problems with this, she used some zuckerbergs faces to censor the nipples.
It was not just her page. Her profile is now blocked, and also the profiles of other 4 Brazilian transgender women. All of this happened yesterday. These transphobic attacks need to stop.
So, Im organizing a small movement with some people that I know that are not transphobic. Everybody who wants to participate just have to take any picture from her tumblr (there are posts in english as well) and post on facebook around 6pm NYC time, with whatever words of support you want. We’re using the hashtags
#sashasso #foratransphobia #sashaforever #sashatamojunto, but feel free to create new ones.
She was really down when I talked to her this morning. It’s a hard time, and I want to show her that she’s not alone, and this fight is still worth fighting! So, if you want to join me, and maybe talk to more people you know about it, it would really mean a lot! And feel free to do it on twitter and tumblr as well!
That’s her tumblr:
