“We titled this magazine Check Yourself, because we all need to be aware of our own particular privileges.  The purpose of our magazine is to raise awareness of the many kinds of privilege among college students who already identify as feminists. Sometimes we could all use a good privilege check.”

Uncensored: For the Flexible Reader

Block 7 2012

Created by Colorado College students Tess Gattuso (Editor), Sophie Javna (Editorial Assistant), Rosie Nelson (Journalist), Nina Friedman (Journalist), and Blaise Yafcak (Graphic Designer) during Block 7 2013

“Porn is a difficult topic to cover. In porn, we see the commodification of sexuality, identities, and bodies…yikes!  Carole S. Vance touches upon the importance of a nuanced analysis of porn in her essay ‘Pleasure and Danger: Toward a Politics of Sexuality.’  She argues, ‘To focus only on pleasure and gratification ignores the patriarchal structure in which women, yet to speak only of sexual violence and oppression ignores women’s experience with sexual agency.’  Uncensored aims to avoid one-sided views of pornography and instead apply a multifaceted approach to the industry.  Instead of censoring porn, Uncensored magazine chooses to explore its potential for FEMINIST ACTION.  While doing so, we remain cognizant of the consequences we see translating between the private realm of porn and the public realm of sexual relationships.  Read on for a raunchy, nuanced variety of pieces speaking to the role that porn can play in our lives.”
–Tess Gattuso, Editor

Queeries

Block 7 2012

Created by Colorado College students Maggie Deadrick (Editor), Peter Shuldiner (Journalist), Carmen Rodi (Journalist), and Natalie Dupille (Graphic Designer)–Block 8 2012

Queeries is a project that is meant to contest culture and nature, and allow what is considered abnormal to find a place where it is considered normal.  Queeries is a safe space for people who feel like they are always battling culture and nature to finally feel at one with the forces.  And Queeries is a window for those who consider themselves accepting on the outside, but don’t feel it on the inside, to learn and grow into truly understanding humans.  Thank you for taking the time to open this magazine; our readers are our first step toward success, and we’re glad you’re taking this journey with us.”
