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.
