Riot Grrrl is actually really damaging in a lot of ways. Kathleen Hanna is incredibly cissexist and racist. I encourage to you be mindful of the music and things you consume. Enjoy riot grrrl but realise how awful a lot of people in the original movement were.
a lot of people seem to have that problem. i’m not sure what to say because this is a tumblr issue, not a mod issue.
I live a 97 hour bike ride away from LA so I have no idea…
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.
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.
I’ve definitely posted her before :)
While I really, really dislike Love, I think that Kurt’s depression and drug addiction was what ultimately brought his untimely death. I think it would have happened whether or not Courtney had been involved with him.
I also think that her reasons to dislike Kathleen Hanna are valid, just as Kathleen’s reasons to dislike Love are valid. Both parties are not innocent in that situation, no matter how much I love what Hanna did for so many people and still does.
Someone submitted it, the quote includes the name of what it’s from!
