Anonymous said: What I wonder is if, when they're talking about the student exchange they say s-exchange (like actually say s ) or if they just call it sexchange
It is pronounced “sex change”

Here are some open-ended questions that the [I’m]Possible crew thought up for folks to respond to. Respond to as many as you want in whatever length you want; we’re looking for folks to share their story and will include responses in the zine. All responses are anonymous.
We at [I’m]Possible highly recommend looking into reading works written and editited by Gloria Anzaldúa. A page on Voices from the Gaps gives information on Anzaldúa and her works: “Gloria Anzaldúa, a self-described ‘chicana dyke-feminist, tejana patlache poet, writer, and cultural theorist,’”

content/trigger warning: discussion about war, violence
during big events at my school, we have event-staff come in. today I met a person who was tasked to sit outside the room, which was attached to our main office, where the performer and crew were changing/hanging out. they were super nice, soft spoken, honest, and inquisitive. they asked me about students at the school here after working the closing shift at swem library and seeing the mass of people leaving at 2am. they then told me about where they went to college, UofR and then VCU. and then they told me about the time that they spent between those two schools. less than a week after they withdrew from UofR because of finances, they received a draft letter from the US army to serve in the Vietnam War and served for three years. I tried not to ask too many questions nor let my mind wander about with curiosity on the subject and spent more energy listening. They opened up about some things that I never could have imagined, their own experiences, the people they knew, their thoughts on why the draft letter came so soon after their withdraw from the institution of UofR. After about thirty minutes, they paused and looked at me and said, “This is the most I’ve ever talked to anyone about it. That part of my life is completely over.”
