Sisters before Misters! We got your Galentine’s Day cards right here

Women, beware! Compulsory heterosexuality day is upon us. Your Grandma’s suspicious questions about why your hair is so short and why you don’t have a boyfriend may become more pressing. Your current man-partner may propose to gain ownership of you for life. The world around you will impress upon you the idea that hetero couplings are the most important thing and that you are incomplete without romance!

Yep, it’s Valentine’s Day: the time of year when patriarchy pretends that the massive amount of unpaid domestic, reproductive, and emotional labour women do is all justified because loooove.

Fuck that! We’re celebrating Galentine’s Day! Here’s an excuse to tell a sister how much she means to you — download any or all of these feminist Galentine’s Day cards to share with the women you love. Sisters before Misters 4 lyfe.

Card design by Kacie Mills. Kacie is a graphic designer who likes green tea, white wine, floofy cats, and plotting lesbian revolution (not necessarily in that order).

    I am sending one of these to my best friend tomorrow. She is a professional journalist chronicling Minneapolis’ efforts to house the homeless. Gorgeous, in her early thirties, and happily single for the last two years. She says she’s not sure she ever wants to date again (last bf, an older journalist, emotionally abused her and had an explosive temper) and has never been happier now that’s she just focused on her own emotional well-being.

    I am def sending one of these to her.

    Oh yes, totally. I didn’t connect all those recent porn stories to Valentine’s Day, but you may well be right!
