moon pad making non stop! will be vending at the L.A. anarchist bookfair, if you are not around you can get them from LALOBALOCA.BIGCARTEL.COM or if you don´t online shop just hit me up and we can arrange something else! i just purchased 5 yards of rainbow fabric… who would had thought ppl were so into rainbow reusable pads….
Only a couple of these sets left!
Why switch to mooning reusable pads?
It is easily washed and is a GREAT investment for people that are buying mxnstrual products monthly! If taken care properly reusable cotton pads can last you for years. It does not only save you money but it minimizes the amount of trash going into the landfills. It is an alternative to buying from hetero-patriarcal, kkkapitalist, blood-shaming kkkorporations that use unhealthy materials to produce tampons/pads that are not healthy for our bodies nor the environment. Changing to reusable moon pads keeps your cunt healthier and allows you to catch your moon and get creative with it!
How do you take care of them?
Rinse with cold water after use or let them remojar in cold water for a couple of hours. You can wring them and use the water with the moon to paint/water plants/whatever else your imagination tells you to use it for. After hand-washing you can either sun dry them or you can throw them in the laundry machine.
OJO: only wash with called water and use dryer minimally! The snaps are made with plastic to cater to folx that are allergic to metal. If the water/dryer is too hot, the snaps will loose their shape. The more you take care of them, the longer they will last!
Made by La Loba Loca with love and intention to provide a product that can make mxnstruation more enjoyable, cuter and also colorful. There is a 15% discount code for first 10 folx purchasing over $20.00, the code is REUSABLE.
I am sharing a PDF ZINE about HPV written by self-helpers/people that do not make money off gardasil. The resource was given to me by a persn that had HPV and that told me this zine was a great resource… she was not “cure” but she was able to keep healthy. Here is the link -> http://zinelibrary.info/files/HPV%20Zine%20FINAL%20on%2014%20by%208%20and%20a%20half.pdf
my thoughts on gardasil:
"i had an IUD for less than a year and had plenty of adverse reaction that according to the doctor were not ‘real’ because they were not written down in the IUD info sheet they distribute in the clinics. there is a LOT of misinformation regarding vaccines, first off i really do not know what is inside vaccines nor do i trust pharmaceutical companies that get drugs past through the FDA, a government run organization that also approves the consumption of food that kills people as we talk.
i do not pretend to shame no one that has had the vaccine or plans to have it… again a couple of years ago i was scare into getting shot with this drug. they told me it would prevent ‘cervical cancer’ … and if folx know about HPV they would know that there are many strains of the STI and some of them are carcinogenic and some are not. most people that have had sexual encounters have some type of HPV strain anyway. that is the reason why they are pushing real hard to get 10-12yr old shot with gardasil before they have any form of sexual encounter. also, i know from talking to people that HAVE HPV that the state of yr immune system impacts how HPV affect you… not that the COMPANY that makes gardasil is gonna give a fuck to tell you how to prevent HPV in the first place.
I guess once gardasil shows me that they REALLY REALLY care about HPV prevention i will trust them completely. They could 1- create an educational program around STI and HPV prevention that includes different sexualities(LGBTQI) and talks about safe sex 2- invests on providing information on how to stay healthy, have a healthy immune system without the need of pharmaceutical drugs 3-is VERY clear about side effect that people have experienced after being shot with the drug regardless their ‘researchers’ decide ppl’s personal experiences are right or wrong 4- stops encouraging nurses and doctors to use TACTICS to get ppl shot with this…. again I WAS SCARED into taking this drugs because the nurse made it sound as if i was bound to die from cervival cancer if i did not take this medication. also there are many webinars online that train ppl on how to PUSH the vaccine for 10-12 yr olds…. i really give a shit about consent and i think this is beyond disgusting… specially when i have heard of plenty of adverse reaction of gardasil in older people, can’t event start to imagine how smaller people would react to the drug. (you can look at this webinars here http://www.arhp.org/…/HPV-and-Cervical-Cancer…/60).
overall, i do not think all pharmaceutical drugs are BS…. i know of plenty of people that are able to live and take advantage of medical advancements (HIV meds, Hormone Replacement Therapy, etc). however i do not think that we can trust all this medical ‘advancements’ and as a persn that has been researching both in an akkkademic institution and by myself about issues concerning Reproductive Justice, i think we have the power to 1-question what is being forced into our bodies 2- take PERSONAL EXPERIENCES (ie. gardasil adverse reaction that go UNDOCUMENTED) very seriously. If you or ANYONE you know is planning to get shot with this MAKE SURE TO DOCUMENT and let your medical provider know about the adverse reaction you are feeling!”
HAVE YOU HAVE ADVERSE REACTIONS TO THIS PHARMACEUTICAL DRUG? IF SO, I WOULD LOVE TO START DOCUMENTING THIS AND MAKING IT INTO A ZINE. CONTACT ME IF YOU WANT TO SHARE YR STORY. Please email your story to firstname.lastname@example.org
Anonymous asked: greetings sistar! i love the info you share! you are such an inspiration. do you think eating fish and sometimes meat once a month is really bad. i juice and eat cultured foods, i love veggies. but i find my body reacts badly to eating vegan with beans and grains. i do better eating fish, and ive recently started eating turkey again all grass fed, organic, and wild. i was vegan 5 years n gained weight and since i cut grains n beans n added meat i feel better. but i feel guilty. what do u think?
i think all bodies are different! if that is what makes you feel good then that is what you should be eating. have you tried to look at where yr family is form? sometimes we need ancestral food… maybe that is what yr ppl used to eat? Personally, sometimes (once a month or once every 2 months) my body wants some meat, so what i do is get a small taco with meat and i’m good after that!
For all the Peruvian foodies out there that are confused about epazote and huacatay. You are not alone!

culturing makes me feel happy and ridiculously static! today i was thinking about how happy making culture foods make me feel and this article popped up gut bacteria might guide the workings of the brain.

you know society is bullshit when formula and animal milk is considered ‘healthier’ that breast milk.
you know western killing medicine is racist and classist when indigenous mamas are giving shots to stop them from breastfeeding and the lowest breastfeeding rates are found in Black communities.
you know breast milk is highly nutritious, delicious and extremely healthy when so many kkkorporations try to illegitimate it.
i am a proud child brought up with only my mama’s milk and i wish EVERYONE was brought up with breast milk as well.
fuck nestle and western killing medicine
