Hello, I'm Jen from greater London.
I like making things and singing and ranting and kicking arse.
Follow me if you like activism, feminism, punk and riot grrrl, vegetarianism, DIY and craft culture, postmodernism, pop culture/critical studies, politics, television, 90s, kittens, gpoy aaaaaand some art.
I noticed there wasn’t a lot of recognition for misophonia so I made a comic (sorry for the quality!). Misophonia is greatly varied and this barely brushes the surface of this broad disorder. I know I kept this brief and broad, so if you want to add anything please put it in the comments! If you have any questions about it feel free to message me or visit the misophonia tag here on tumblr. If you want to learn more or think that you may have misophonia, check out http://misophoniasupport.tumblr.com/ and http://www.misophonia-uk.org/faqs.html
I learned something new today!
I get very triggered and anxious when people make food noises. I wish it were easier to ask people to stop :(
I get triggered by food noises as well (not so much as myself making noises but others) and i get this really awful shoulder/neck twitch thing when people talk excitedly or angrily and hit the table with their hands—one time i literally covered my ears in public because my aunt kept forgetting to not slap the table and i was on the verge of fucking tears
just, please, be kind and be open minded if someone says something bothers them and they wish you to stop
My student has this with coughing, don’t know how much longer he can last at uni.

Last night at wowzers festival was truly wonderful. So many lovely queer feminist people! And the Tuts played a new song!!
Managed to go to Wowzers Fest for a bit this weekend too. I went to the Queer/Feminist fairytales workshop today. The lady who was running it was so lovely, and there were so many great people there. I really wanted to spend more time and make new friends but I had so much work on this weekend :( such a shame. I wish I was meeting more queer/feminist people in London to go to cool things with. Also sad to miss the Girl Germs gig this evening, but they do them quite regularly so I guess I’ll have to try my best to make it to the next one!
totally missed out on all the workshops. I’ll know better next time! There needs to be more events like this that aren’t held in East London pubs (which are impossible to get back the west London from)
