If you are a person who still thinks that girls are made of sugar and spice and all things nice, what rock have you been living under? We drove eight hours just to see Ani DiFranco perform, we held kiss-in protests in front of a known skinhead house, and we made zines protesting hegemonic standards of beauty.


As for Chicken, who does not love a cat who does yoga? Would she take it lying down?
