A downloadable manifesto

Members of marginalised groups are so often thought of in terms of the monstrous. Our lived experience, our appearance and presentation, our relationships, our cultures, our love -- all of these things are made into horror by oppressive attitudes. Similarly, there is a particular narrative so intrinsic to the idea of "heroism" that we no longer analyse whether that person does good deeds -- instead, their association with the hero narrative justifies them retroactively.

This manifesto calls for the continued analysis, complication, subversion and reclaimation of these convenient narratives.
