zines do not mince words or shy away from controversy


Zinesters demand that you think about gender roles, religion, familial relationships, politics, sexual orientation, the environment, academic disciplines, the arts, class structure, ethnicity, generational differences, economics, and pop culture in new ways.  Zinesters question politicians, value systems, eating habits, body politics, class structures, and numerous other topics through personal and controversial words and pictures. Zinesters operate outside formal political spheres and state structures. Zines exemplify a type of independent social critique and public engagement necessary to democracy.
