I’m Anshika and I’m a South Asian, trans/genderfluid illustrator making art for soft, fierce human beings. 💛 My work is hyper-detailed, vibrant and unapologetic, and is my way of navigating the world as a marginalised person; I hope it helps others feel seen/understood too. ✍🏼

I’ve had enough of crap like this. My constituent wasn’t a snowflake when a guy tried to rip her hijab off on Oxford Street. The women beaten up on a bus by homophobic teenagers weren’t snowflakes. Language matters. These guys are normalising hatred. 🚮

Imagine if had referred to Jewish men as xxxxxx or had called white women xxxxxx do you think journalists and broadcasters would be discussing anything else? They’d be banned from the party let alone allowed to be considered PM. THIS IS A DISGRACE.

"Being a Muslim woman who subscribes to democratic ideals, human rights norms – and who refuses to conform to the demands of preachers so frequently placed on women – has often placed me in the out-group, worthy of abuse and denigration." 👏🏽

Never taken or even touched a single narcotic in my life. Never even smoked a cigarette. Yet I've been stopped & searched for this stuff countless times. Had I of been stupid or desperate enough to get involved with such things, my life would have been ruined. Yet Michael Gove...
