Anonymous asked: I was at a show and was the only girl moshing. Another girl pulled me aside and told me that I was going against everything Kathleen Hanna and Bikini Kill stood for. Is it really better for me to stand aside in silent protest of male-dominated mosh pits when what I really want to do is join in?
I think everyone differs on this opinion and I don’t speak for the whole of this blog, however, personally I think that as a Riot Grrrl you do what you want when you want. If you want to protest by joining in, join in! Don’t ever let the patriarchy keep you from doing what you want. Be the Grrrl that you are, and own it.

I don’t see why not! Just credit us and the source :) Good luck Grrrl.

Anonymous asked: At school we had to like do a talk on an issue. The issue I chose was "Do women incite or cause rape if they are dressed like "sluts" I was obviously saying Hell No but I thought other people would be like weird about it and think I was strange that I was doing a talk on rape but they were genuinely interested in one of the facts I had and liked my talk. YAY ME :)
Yay! that’s awesome!
riotgirls asked: Hey! I found your tumblr recently and literally looked through every page! It's so inspiring and it made me so happy and proud to be a girl! I was wondering if you had the names of any other feminist/riot grrrl tumblrs?
does anyone want to answer this?
hystericalbitchzine asked: Hi, we're a new feminist zine made by people from Bournemouth University, UK. Our zine is a reaction to being told we can't be angry feminists, or the patriarchy won't accept us- but there's so much to be angry about! If you could promote us to your followers, that would be fabulous, thanks :)
check this outttt.

thenakedmustaches asked: Hey, I'd just like to say that I'm a 14 year old confused loner girl, and right now I feel like Riot Grrrl is where I belong. I just wanted to thank you all so much for making me feel like I fit in for once :)
