"Because making a zine on breaking the law while also posting pictures of yourself is a brilliant thing to do."

For the linkphobes, this person posted on her Tumblr, which also has a tag for pictures of herself, asking for submissions to an online zine on shoplifting. If it was analysis of the phenomenon and social issues surrounding it, that wouldn't be a problem, but no, she specifies that "how to" articles are welcome.

She also states that she wants to see "the relationship between queer people and poc and shoplifting,"
then she posts what she looks like on her tumblr because thats the smart thing to do.

She is calling to arms but for what reason? because its edgy and cool? Or maybe because she has some serious issues.

This sounds like a one way ticket to jail.

I wish I could say I feel sorry for this chick, but I dont. This is a bunch of bad decisions followed by an even bigger bad decision.

If this was really about the social phenomenon about shoplifting she wouldnt be asking for how to articles, and try to justify the "ethics" of stealing from big companies versus smaller businesses. Stealing is stealing. Its one thing if you are in dire need of something, its another thing to do it for kicks. Which is what some of this sounds like.

*head desk*
I fear for the future of this world.

One of her other entries brags about how she's taking down The White Man... somehow... by stealing Jesus candles from a shop which happens to be owned by white people. Yeah, forget sensible public rallies, writing to one's government representative, or whatever; the state will be smashed by the theft of random items worth a couple of dollars. And if she gets caught I'll bet she'll blame it on her being non-white rather than the fact that she's, you know, breaking the law.

well considering that most people will blame everything else but themselves is typical. Her not being white has nothing to do with it though she wont see it. It will be her being persecuted for her skin color. Im not sure what she is trying to prove other than she is an idiot. Somewhere she thought this was clever. Then again I have heard of other things that were thought to be clever that were anything but.

Though if you read some of her other entries it seems she has a drug habit and some other issues, if she is suffering from depression or whatever then maybe she steals as a way to feel. The rush of doing it. I am not justifying her stupid, Im just stating.

Oh, I didn't see that. Still, I have a selection box of mental illnesses myself, but I don't use them to justify theft.

One shouldnt use mental illness to justify anything. But then again this girl doesnt seem to be that bright.

A zine?

She might want to have a series on "How To Not Be A Dumb-Ass," if she could find any people smart enough to submit worthwhile material. Could be a long wait.

Well -- there are, after all, young people who tape video themselves committing criminal assault and post the vids on their Facebook page. Apparently the youth of the future have lost the distinction between the Indoor Voice and the Outdoor Voice...
