A Poem for Grrl Virus


Thrifted Top, Skirt from Meg, SSWR Shoes, Vintage Bag

Zines: Revolver, Teenage Grrl Riot, Possible Press, I knew a....3-4

Hi
I'm tired
This post is going to be rather short
and in poem form
how do you like that
beef paste

Sticks and Stones Won't Break my bones, idiots will hurt my brain
The Virus is weird
You know, kind of wonky
Like Grasshoppers
The point is
To help people understand
Feminists aren't bra burners
They just want
Gender Equality
and
Baked Ziti

I totally agree about the feminist thing - when my friend said she was a feminist her mum told her to "stop being such a lesbo." That's the kind of ignorant attitude that seems to abound - le sigh.

Gotta love high waisted skirts - and your facial expressions!

Love the skirt. Love the T-shirt. (God thrift find!) LOVETHOSESHOES. Yeah I know I say that EVERY time you wear them. Sorry.

And good poem. I hate feminist stereotypes- well ALL stereotypes, actually. Good good. Hope you get less tired soon. It's a tiring time of year. (Especially when your school is EVIL and hasn't even finished.[/teen])
