Image contains a photo of two dogs being walked. One dog is all black and the other is a dark yellow. The two dogs are on leashes, which can be seen coming from the bottom of the screen toward the dogs. In the background, there is a small road, blue sky, and trees and bushes.

Image contains a medium-dark brown wooden background. On the wood, there is a variety of fruit and vegetables. In the centre, there is a papaya and coming from the left and right of the fruit are two small stalks of a leafy green vegetable. Nestled under the leaves at the end of each stalk are lemons, and just below each lemon on the right and left there is a small hot pepper. The whole image is meant to represent the female reproductive system.

March is Endometriosis Awareness Month, so today seemed like a perfect time to throwback to a piece about just that from T.O.F.U. #11. Read More »
