Article: Adrienne Matei’s Live Closer To Your Friends
“Friends who already live in the same city could decide to move within walking distance of one another—the same neighborhood, block, or even apartment building—and campaign for others to do the same. Doing so would likely involve a lot of effort on the front end, but the resulting community could pay emotional dividends for years.”
“Moving close to your friends requires some masterminding. Cities can make doing so easier by dismantling single-family zoning codes and encouraging a variety of housing types in neighborhoods, giving those with different budgets and living situations options that fit their needs. But even without official policies, people can make it work on their own—assuming they’re persuasive enough.”
Article: Clementine Morrigan’s They Don’t Even Know They Are Tops and Bottoms
Article that I’m thinking about around the assumptions of “Compulsory Heteronormativity and Consent.”
Would absolutely see this again.
