I just need this on my blog so I can refer to it when I can actually process the complex and gross feelings I have for this situation aka the idea of riot grrrl as something you can buy off the rack / as something to be capitalized upon / as something worthy of being capitalized upon / faux feminist slash questionably feminist marketing strategies a la we won’t say anything so you will just naturally assume we’re right strategies / third wave white feminist grunge shoppables without the actual feminism????????
give us your money and we’ll give you some fake politics
let us make money off of a really white ass feminism 101 movement and be cool at the same time
riot grrrl isn’t something you just put on like a tshirt, it’s not something you put on with a pair of velvet boots. that is some half assed bullshit. that is some Jay Z trying to sell Occupy Wall Street level of bullshit. i’m not into it.
it’s too complicated. i just wanted to look at some fucking shoes. my god.
Haha, yeah, what this person said. But oh my gosh WOW, riot grrrl is being exploited by retailers in the year TWO THOUSAND AND TWELVE? It’s like I don’t even need to feel sad that my youth has ended, because I look out the window and it’s 1994.
