Where Have All the Badasses Gone?

I have worshipped badass women who stand up for their beliefs all of my life. I can remember sitting on the couch with my dad when I was about five years old listening to Stevie Nicks, Grace Slick, and Joan Jett. I was so enamored with them; how could they say those "bad words" and not get into trouble? Where did they learn to play the guitar like that? Who cut their hair like a boy and spiked it up like that?

They were badasses.


Do You Wanna Touch Me?

Every girl an' boy needs a little joy
All you do is sit an' stare
Beggin' on my knees baby, won't you please
Run your fingers through my hair
Do you wanna touch, yeah?
Do you wanna touch, yeah?
Do you wanna touch me there?




Fetish

Oh, look good in latex
Get off having rough sex
Surprise, round and round the bed
Restrained while I fuck your head





I Love Playing With Fire


My heart is aching to see you play
And I can't wait till another day
The way you shake me is really hot
You know how to use what you got

I love playing with fire
And I don't wanna get burned
I love playing with fire
And I don't think I'll ever learn



These Joan Jett lyrics were daring, especially in the 80's and the best thing about them was a boy wasn't writing or singing them. These lyrics were being screamed out by a badass girl- the original Riot Grrrl.


I ask myself, where have all the badasses gone? If you look at music today, there really aren't any true badasses. No women leading the 21st century with rebellious, feminist lyrics- no screaming lead guitar riffs played by women. Instead we are left with bubblegum pop superstars. Their voices are dubbed over, they lipsync, their main concern is shaking their asses, and don't even ask if they play an instrument.


I got my badass Riot Grrrl fix last night; I saw Joan Jett. Beware boys, I'm feelin' feisty!



Terrible picture from last night.



I did pin-up last night.
