Who is “she”?

The title of this blog: “When She Speaks I hear the Revolution” comes from the lyrics of the song Rebel Girl by Bikini Kill.

Essentially the title is a tribute to those women who have used their voices and their individual talents to incite thoughts of revolution and, in general, inspire.

These women are all extremely incredible and this page is for them. the outcasts, the revolutionaries, the powerful strong women who prove that just because one is gendered female doesn’t mean one cannot do strong and meaningful things.

    You sent me an e-mail for some reason and I just checked the web page.

    Good page, however reading your “Story Of Rebel Grrl” part, you throw a cog in the gears of what feminism really is (slightly). You associate feminism with lesbianism, and just because a woman is afeminist it doesn’t make her a lesbian. I’m a male, but am glad to see females taking pride in themselves. The confusion of the message could make those who are searching for the pride in themselves, get a wrong message on what it means. I’m not a dictionary so, and not going to philisophical or anything, but just putting it out there that pro-active feminists are not always lesbians or bra burners. I understand your point as an individual which is excellent. Anyways, take care.


    P.S. Glad to see people still listen to Bikini Kill these days, it’s refreshing

    I never associated feminism with lesbianism–I am completely aware that being a lesbian does not make you feminist and being a feminist does not make you a lesbian~when I said the stuff about the stereotypes it was in a way to show that they are simply that–STEREOTYPES. and if you’re gonna call me a lesbian because I’m a feminist and that’s the common stereotype–well, why should I be horribly offended? Should I be offended at the idea of lesbian? If someone wants to show their ignorance by associating feminism with lesbianism–let them. that’s their ignorance that’s showing.

    “she”…………I know a little about who “she” is. I think every girl and every guy has a “she”……but I like to think of the Bikini Kill song referring to a girl having her “she”…..so this “she” we ponder over is anyone, girl, that you have lusted over or simply wanted to be like…..

    kinda like the song says “I really like you, I really wanna be your best friend…be mine, Rebel Girl”. Soooooo you can take it any way you want, but I know that I hear and see and feel alot of things when I see my “she”.

    “When She Speaks I Hear the Revolution,” is the most awesome blog title I’ve seen in, possibly, ever.

    And, even better, it’s attached to a damn awesome blog.

    I wish I knew how to change my page around and add fancy stuff like you have. Anyway, I like your music posts. I’m so out of the loop; it’s nice to be able to go somewhere to find new stuff.
