Please enjoy our latest free downloadable sticker offering.

Stickering is the quietest form of disruption. It’s something you can do anytime all by yourself at your leisure. Our free sticker sheets are in .pdf file format and follow Avery® brand label templates. Each sticker sheet’s file name in our Dropbox folder ends with the product number of the Avery® label size you should use for that sticker. Avery® 5163 is our most frequently used, but you’ll find others, as well.
All you have to do is buy blank matching labels from an office supply store and print away in the comfort and convenience of your own home!
Betsy Riot started out exclusively focused on the gun issue and telling the NRA to go fuck itself, but since the erection of Drumpf, we’ve expanded the people and institutions we want to tell to fuck off. We’re adding new stickers all the time, so keep checking back! Check out our flyers, too!
Now. Go be a Betsy. Sow the seeds of dissent. Fuck shit up.
Part 5 of the instructional video series “How to Be a Betsy”, a Betsy Riot production.
In this episode: we learn how to create a homemade Betsy Banger tool for stapling “bandit signs” high up on telephone poles out of the reach of the angry, pundenda-scented, groping little hands of gunlicker Trumpizoids who might be compelled to rip them down in man-tearful, outraged hissyfits. All of the materials can be purchased at your local home improvement retail store–like, um, 84 Lumber, should one be near you.
NOTE: Bandit signs are more typically used by fast-buck real estate agents to exploit poor people. As such, they are considered a public nuisance by many communities. Be conscious of the laws in your area. Penalties vary. But so does the give-a-shit factor of code enforcers.
Check out this great photo of a Betsy in Omaha yesterday by photographer Mike Machian!
What’s Betsy saying, you ask? Word has it she was pointing to the crowd and saying, “You can be a Betsy, and you can be a Betsy, and you can be a Betsy…!
If you are sick to the death of this fucking shit and are ready to kick the Zeitgeist in its fucking scrotum, you are already Betsy–you just didn’t know it!
Let’s change the culture. Let’s fuck shit up. Be a Betsy, goddammit! Do it NOW!
How? Go check out our page’s video section for tips and examples of our actions. Or go to our website at betsyriot.com and click on “Get Started.”
Do it. Do it now. And thanks to Mike Machian for this inspirational photo ofBetsy!
Yesterday was MLK Day and in a few days this country is swearing in a literal fucking fascist president with a white supremacist cabinet. Are you ready to start fucking this shit up? Are you ready to be a betsy?
We are calling on YOU to do any number of the following this week.
1. MARCH. Wear all black. Get black veiling from the craft store to cover your face. Walk with Betsy signs in your local women’s march. If you live in a red state, this is extremely powerful. Let them know Betsy is in town. Make your own Betsy signs or print some from here:
Our only requirement is that your signs are absolutely not fucking nice. None of this highroad bullshit. Call that fascist out for what he is.
2. HANG A BANNER. Make a banner using a cheap shower curtain and duct tape and hang it with zip ties in your city. Be rude. Be a resister. Also, be sure not to endanger drivers. We have a how-to video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch…
3. FLYER THE SHIT OUT OF YOUR TOWN, PREFERABLY WITH A BETSYBANGER. We have printable signs galore. Print them out and put them everywhere. Even better: make yourself a Betsy banger and whack them on telephone poles. If you laminate them they may last longer than Il Douche’s fascist regime. Remember that this is possibly illegal so be sure you are careful.
How to make a Betsy Banger here:
Then send us photos, videos, etc.! Get out there and save our country, betsies.
Welcome, new betsies, to the Betsy Riot. We are the decentralized neosuffragette punk patriot resistance to Trumpism and NRA fuckery.
We’ve received lots of questions from people who want to join with us. Here are the basics:
1. We are fighting a regime that is literally fascist. It will only get worse before it gets better. We are therefore anonymous. The cardinal rule is that you never out another Betsy. Are there betsies in your state? Probably, but we won’t tell you who they are even if we know.
2. Your actions are your own. We sometimes suggest organized actions and individual actions. We make no claims about their legality nor do we have a legal defense fund. You may also get creative and fuck with fascist gun-pushing misogynist white supremacist shitheads in your own ways, and that is cool, too. But remember we don’t have bail money. We know of a few betsies facing criminal citations (misdemeanors, all) and they are doing so wearing their big girl bustles.
3. We do insist you never hurt or endanger another person in our name. We harvest tears, not blood. We believe in goodness, not niceness. Fuck with a bootlicking neo-nazi turdcock and make him cry and whimper for a safe space from your mean words and mockery. It’s actually pretty easy to do all without touching a hair on his well-oiled head.
4. So how do you get started? Well, many betsies get started by plastering soft graffiti on gun porn or Trump obscenities. We have downloadable stickers you can print at home just for such stuff. We would never, ever, EVER suggest that you deface gun porn magazines or Trump bumper stickers or that you come and take anything with “come and take it” on it, because that would be illegal. Similarly, it would be so, so very wrong of us to suggest you start making it not worth it to purveyors of fascist gunhumping bullshit by rendering such wares unsellable, for example by squirting fake blood on them or writing extremely impolite commentary on them in sharpie.
5. If you have friends who are betsies, organize an action. Get creative. Hang a banner. Place your own DIY yard sign in a prominent and amusing locale. Crash a feel-good family photo-op event hosted by your local Trumplicker politician. Wear widows’ weeds and stand quietly with a sign that tells him in florid, delicious prose exactly what he is.
6. Stay tuned. We will post ideas for organized actions that you and your friends can perform if you wish. Let’s fuck this shit up.
Part 4 of the instructional video series “How to Be a Betsy“, a BetsyRiot production.
In this episode: Chalk! Since the days of the fearsome Suffragettes, chalk has been used to speak truth to power on many forms of cement both laterally and vertically. The era of spray chalk has only expanded the possibilities, bringing to the age-old practice a modern speed and efficiency that causes many a gunlicker to gasp in indignation and even more to weep with frustrated man-tears of impotent rage and butthurtedness.

Part 3 of the multi-part instructional video series “How to Be a Betsy” fromBetsyRiot Productions on how to betsy things, and in so doing, be aBetsy.
In this episode: Betsy demonstrates how to create an overpass banner using simple products available at your local home hardware store. Some zip ties, a little duct tape and a grommeted shower curtain liner are all you’ll need to say “Fuck the NRA!” to commuters and other travelers on the nation’s highways. Other methods are also briefly explored.
