Congratulations to Rokudenashiko and Mike on their newest manko progeny, Leon! Baby and Mama are healthy and happy. What more could we ask for.
We’re so excited for Nashiko’s big year, which includes a quick tour to New York in May for the PEN World Voices Festival. Rokudenashiko will be speaking in conversation with sculptor Ali Asgar on “Exposure: Gender Sex and Power” May 2, 9pm (Tickets Available Here). Don’t miss this opportunity to meet the new Manko Family!
Meanwhile, Rokudenashiko continues to fight an obscenity conviction in Appeals Court. Her next trial date is in April. Keep her in your thoughts/prayers/rituals/blessings/spells/conversation! We can use all the juujuu you can afford, for her LA Times Book Prize (Graphic Novels) nomination, too!
You can find “What Is Obscenity” in a bookstore near you, including our own webstore. :B

We’re marching against gender discrimination.
We’re bleeding for you.
Free Manko. Forever.
Pre-sales ongoing now for the Rokudenashiko-inspired Manko Riot Tee (Black and White and Pink and White) and Patches. Join the march for women in D.C. or your nearest affiliate city, and show the world what a MASSIVE PUSSY looks like!
*Proceeds benefit organizations supporting the rights those facing oppression based on gender.
MASSIVE PUSSYOn Jan 20, America ceremonially accepts a fate...
On Jan 20, America ceremonially accepts a fate accelerated to war by a new presidency, and on Jan 21 we stage a loud refusal.
What MASSIVE does might not amount to a whole lot in the context of what feels like insurmountable piles of bullshit, but we feel compelled to action, and we do what we can, and what we do is make things. These designs by manko emancipator Rokoudenashiko will be used as a fundraising and awareness vehicle in conjunction with the Million Women’s March in D.C. next month, which we’re proud to participate in and support. Proceeds will benefit charities that support the rights of all people identifying as women, for all orphans of gender.
We’ll be announcing pre-orders for T-shirts and patches soon, but please let us know if you’re interested in local distribution. You can contact us via gmail: massive-dot-merch.
#FREEMANKO for Rokudenashiko!
Securing safe passage for Rokudenashiko has proved extremely difficult throughout our FREE MANKO tour preparations. This week another obstacle has popped up in our way. For strictly bureaucratic reasons, Rokudenashiko’s Canadian travel visa has been denied. While we’re working to amend this and have not canceled any tour events, with the announcement of her trial verdict and the tour kick off both expected next week it is more important now than ever before to show support for the Japanese manko-artist fighting for gender equality and the liberation of pussies everywhere. Here’s how you can help: spread the word about Rokudenashiko online using the hashtag #FREEMANKO, tweet about her, blog about her, and post photos of yourself wearing the FREE MANKO tee on instagram. When someone asks, “What’s MANKO?” explain to them that it’s Japanese slang for vagina, the representation of which is vital for a gender-equal society that honors and celebrates women’s bodies and sexuality. #FREEMANKO!
massive-goods: Our friends at bad-ass DJ collective Discwoman...
Proceeds from the shirt will go toward Rokudenashiko’s legal and tour fund. Read our interview with Rokudenashiko to find out more about her legal fight and her graphic novel memoir, What is Obscenity? The Story of a Good For Nothing Artist and Her Pussy (forthcoming from Koyama Press).
We asked the women of Discwoman: What does “Free Manko” mean to you?
Frankie: If manko is free, women are.
Emma: Freeing manko gives agency to a woman. If she is free she can pursue what she dreams of in life.
Christine: Manko is cunt—unapologetic, fierce and unafraid to express freely.
