YOU GO GIRL

Girl power is patronizing, trite and embarrassing. In fact - I hate it. The subject of this post, however, is different. This is just about some good shit that makes me feel good to be the same gender. Like, "Oh - you're a girl? Cool... your skin is soft and your hair smells good and I like the sound of your voice because it reaches a level of naive gentle innocence seldom expressed in such an off-key unaffected manner. Cool. I like you." Also, this dude who doodles 'you go girl' is not dumb. In fact - I love it. And I love him. Cool. Now here is my un-dumb listening list.




No Love - SoKo
One Time - Emma Hasselblad
Brewstreet - Salem
Le Daylight - Tickley Feather
Culver City - Yellow Fever
Don't See the Sorrow - Au Revoir Simone
Let It Go - Me

Thanks for the shout-out! I'm all about supporting each other -- not for trite "girl power" reasons, but because there is so much in this world trying to push us down that we need as much encouragement lifting us up as we can get...

Is that supposed to be an insult to my Arabic background?

Wow, that's brilliant. Was your comment about my bra straps supposed to be an insult to my DD cup size?
