Zombies Counterprotest Westboro Baptist Church

| July 30, 2012

You know, Zombies catch an awful lot of flack from the usual suspects in the press: stereotypes about brain-devouring, Living-slaughtering and a (supposed) lack of intelligence and humanity. But, I’ll have you point out, they don’t go around picketing funerals, like the, ahem, people from the Westboro Baptist Church. Who’ve become justifiably infamous as, well, [...]

Sad Times for English Zombies (And Everyone Else)

| July 28, 2012

The ZRC blog reported extensively on the arrest/persecution of UK Zombie Activists (or just those dressed as Zombies, minding their own business). In fact, our most recent Zombie of the Year was one of said unjustly detained activists, Hannah Eiseman-Renyard, who bravely fought against said injustices in court. Tragically, and in our opinion inexplicably, the [...]

FEARnet Covers Zombie Rights March at ComicCon 2012

| July 26, 2012

We mentioned the Zombie Rights March to be held at this year’s ComicCon, and it appears it was a great success. FEARnet’s reporter on the scene starts off from a very classic Anti-Zombie position but the earnestness, diversity and friendliness of the marchers makes a big impact, and the resulting piece illustrates beautifully why the [...]

Zombie Clock? If Only It Was Time for Social Justice

| July 23, 2012

Time is an important thing to keep track of, and the ZRC would dearly love a good Zombie Clock, suitable for helping track our engagements to promote Undead Equality. Sadly this isn’t it: I’m not sure if I like this or not. Don’t get me wrong. Visually it looks pretty damn cool. I’m just not [...]

A Zombie-Fearing Survivalist and His Money Are Soon Parted

| July 21, 2012

We’ve talked before on the ZRC blog about the cottage industry catering to those poor, misguided, paranoid souls who are afraid the Zombie Apocalypse is always right around the corner. You know the type. Stockpiling food, blades, ammunition. Wondering what sort of air filtration system their bunker needs to keep out Solanum or Trioxin. Scary [...]

Zombies as Mascots? This Could Go Poorly

| July 20, 2012

Using various cultures and peoples as sports mascots has a long and often troubled history. For every ‘Fighting Irish’ that’s generally seen as harmless you have a plethora of, say, Native American mascots that are far more controversial. It’s a touchy subject. Keeping that in mind, and also bearing in mind the current status of [...]

Hey, Zombie Allies: Support ‘Zombie Bohemia’ The Series!!!

| July 19, 2012

The ZRC loved Zombie Bohemia. I mean, seriously loved it. A Zombie Friendly story about an Undead *artist* struggling to make an Unliving in the hyper-competitive Fine Arts world? And a cast and crew open to constructive criticism and advice from the Undead Rights Movement? Excellent. Now you, lucky Zombie Rights Allies of the Internet, [...]

More Abuse of Term ‘Zombie’

| July 16, 2012

Really, we’ve come to expect a lot of shallow, uninteresting bashing of the Undead, often simply by using words for Undead individuals (like, and most commonly, ‘Zombie’) to describe anything and everything you don’t personally care for. Latest example, more ‘Zombie’ lies/mistruths/distortions in politics. This time about Medicaid, apparently. I’m not hugely interested, for ZRC [...]

‘Dead Before Dawn 3D’

| July 13, 2012

Wow. I for one am severely disappointed in Christopher Lloyd for appearing in upcoming Anti-Zombie (and Anti-Demon) film, ‘Dead Before Dawn 3D‘: So basically, let me get this straight. An irresponsible shop owner keeps a magical weapon of mass destruction sitting on a high shelf where it can fall and be released. He allows an [...]

‘Undead Warehouse’, Retailer of Shame

| July 13, 2012

We like to highlight the positives here on the ZRC blog, when we can. Activists, creative types, even retailers doing good work to advance the Zombie Equality cause. This isn’t one of those times. ‘Undead Warehouse’ is very, very Anti-Zombie. They have a tragically wide selection. Vicious, often graphically violent shirts about hating Zombies (take [...]
