If you want the QUEER HACKER design on a larger, high-quality weatherproof vinyl sticker and you want me to actually get paid for it, I sell them on my online shop here: shop.irisjay.net/products/cros

If it's a real Iris Jay sticker, it'll have a URL that leads to either my site or the Crossed Wires site on it somewhere. I'm that thorough. Accept No Substitutes

addendum
- they will not "understand when they're older". you failed to understand something when you were young. stop projecting
