Anonymous asked: are trans* FAAB people accepted in the riot grrrl movement now?
I am sure that there are differing opinions on this, and I personally can’t speak for everyone, however my personal philosophy is that if you want to be apart of something, then be a part of it! trans*, cis, everything in between… it doesn’t matter. If someone is trans* FAAB but still identifies with the riot grrrl movement and wants to be a part of it, more power to you! The reverse should also be true. Again, I don’t speak for the whole movement, nor do I even speak for all of those involved in moderating this blog… however that is my personal and independent opinion on the subject.

feministrocker asked: Thanks for the suggestions! \m/

glasstambourine asked: To that last ask: I would recommend L7 (recommended song to check out: Slide and Wargasm) or 7 Year Bitch (recommended song to check out: The History Of My Future). Not recessarily Riot Grrrl in the most typical sense, because Riot Grrrl is primarily more a punk sound, but these are all female bands that are super bad ass. Just thought I'd throw something out there.
Anonymous asked: About the question are there any riot grrrl bands as heavy as metal bands, I would say: My Ruin and Tura satana by Tairrie B. There is also all female metal band Kittie and pretty badass Shocker Stalin.

feministrocker asked: I just want to know, are there any riot grrrl bands that are as heavy as Metallica or Pantera? I've been trying to ask around, and nobody's yet given me an answer.
I don’t personally know this answer, but maybe one of our followers do? If anyone knows the answer to this, send it to us and we’ll publish it. Great question!

mandalyntheterrible asked: so i have been a feminist for a long time i guess i just haven't really done anything to contribute but i do have strong beliefs i'm just sort of an outcast so i spend most of my time writing and painting. i'm starting college in the fall and i'd like to minor in womens studies and travel the world liberating women who have never had a choice to be anything but slaves to their men and culture. so i guess i would just like to know how i can get involved now?

The first thing you can do to help women around the world is knock off with that mindset. Women in other countries are not completely helpless, they are not stupid. They don’t need white women coming in and “liberating” them. If you want to go places, observe, and help WHEN ASKED that’s one thing. Ask questions. Be RESPECTFUL. You do not necessarily know what is best for a person, they do. If you want to get involved there are probably clubs on campus, just ask your instructor! Taking classes on gender as well as on women’s studies is super important as well. Recognise that women come in all shapes, sizes, colours, and genitalia. Support trans* women. Attend events. Start a band. Start a grrrl gang. Fight body-shaming by shaving your legs or not shaving your legs do whatever you wanna do with your legs and encourage everyone else do the same; be who THEY want to be. Fight femme-shaming. Fight fat-shaming.
I don’t really check this blog anymore, but if you have any other questions I can be found over at glasscoffin.tumblr.com.
Anonymous asked: Even though I have been raised by a very feminist dad, my brother said today "Girls should dress properly, you shouldn't dress to show your ass and be sexy". Indeed, my brother is sexist. So I told him "I have every right to show my ass and it gives noone the right to touch it." And I thought of your blog right after I said it. <3 Susie
That’s beautiful and definitely a focal point of the third wave of feminism. Stay awesome grrrl!
