capriuni: A black field crossed by five parallel lighting bolts in blue, gold, green, red, and purple (Default)

It's a Big image, so I'm going to give you the image description up top (which is long enough, but easy to scroll past), and put the image itself below the cut:

Image description: A black and white tabloid sized poster in the style of an educational diagram, showing a tree and its root system, combined with text to explain the relationship between Bigotry, Ableism, Racism, Sexism, and Homophobia.

At the bedrock level: "BIGOTRY: Beliefs and policies which work to exclude people from full membership in human society."

Above, in the root system: "ABLEISM: Judging the value of a person's humanity on the basis of ability."

Above ground, the tree's trunk has two main forks; the left-hand fork is labeled "RACISM:" and leads to an example racist belief in its cluster of leaves: "Blacks are Less Intelligent than Whites, but they are More Athletic"

The tree's right-hand fork is labeled "SEXISM:" and leads to two clusters of leaves. The main cluster reads: "Women are Weaker, & Less Rational than Men;" the secondary cluster, branching off from the first, reads: "Gays are effeminate. Lesbians are emasculating."

At the very top of the tree, in a cluster of leaves centered between these two branches, with a freely curving arrow pointing down to each half, is the explanation: "Claims about Ability used to Pass Judgment on People's Humanity (This is ABLEISM)"

Description ends.

The "*-Ism" Tree

It's all black and white, now. ...I'm debating whether to add color here and there (like outlining the tree's leaves, and maybe coloring the words). It would be easier to color the entire thing if I had the option of saving a scanned image as a .gif or .png file instead of only .jpg or .pdf.

Ya know?

Nice. I think it's great as is. In fact, I can imagine a discussion of this insight with coloring pencils in hand.

1- I WANT, very badly, to grab my coloring pencils-- not the pretty ones-- to relieve some stress.

2- This would look AMAZING on the back (rather than the front) of a tee shirt. Fronts are the better option for those in wheelchairs, true, but mostly, the people I'd feel the need to SHOW it to are the ones I'd want to be done with anyway... and hence, leaving!

3- On the subject of tee shirt graphics in particular, picture it color-reversed, WHITE lines where the black are, for most colored tee shirt fabric. I believe it would be AMAZING.

In any case, I'd LOVE to see this return some financial benefit to you, because it is beautiful, powerful, and far, far too socially relevant.

How about the stylized tree itself? Is that on a separate layer? If so, put that as a pocket-size logo on the front, with JUST a 'no' symbol over the word "ableism"?

Sure, it changes the detailed impact, but it makes a good way to connect to the large image (I'd put it on the back of the "pocket style" shirt.)

Better you than me. After I wrote that comment I went on Tumblr in an attempt to connect the you & Mel in a post, and 90 minutes later I'm still scratching my head.

OKAY! New day, more cognition, I think I succeeded in reblogging it while tagging Mel

I realize I didn't check first whether you (or Mel) are concerned about linking identities. Ooops. Happy to delete post if you are!
