    age, sex, location, name, interests, why you joined this community, etc.
Hi I just found this community and being a big fan I thought Id join. Since I dont have anything to say right at this moment I will just introduce myself.

Im Christal
Im 21 years old
I was born in and lived in Washington state my whole life
Im really into punk and diy and music and stuff like that. I play bass and drums and I like to draw and make clothes and take pictures.
I joined the community because Im a big fan of Kathleen and the impact shes made on girls around the world. Including myself. I discovered riot grrrl when i was 14 (well after the fact) through bikini kill and it totally changed my life. Im not really a fan of le tigre.. its not really the sound I listen to but I looove Bikini kill and other grrl bands like bratmobile and babes in toyland, heavens to betsy and all that stuff.
I feel like Kathleen is a great inspiration to me, she made me feel like yeah... I may be a girl, I may be poor, and yeah i may have been through something but I have a voice... and i have support. Im not alone. I can make music too, my art is important too...my thoughts are important too!
Instead of trying to fit in with all the narrow minded sexist punk men i surrounded myself with.. I embraced the fact that I was female and I could kick ass too.
She gave me the confidence I have to be myself... and thats why I am joining this community.

Riot Grrrl Manifesto 
  grrrlesque
 
08:47pm 19/03/2009
  This was written by Kathleen Hanna in the early 1990's.

Riot Grrrl Manifesto

BECAUSE us girls crave records and books and fanzines that speak to US that WE feel included in and can understand in our own ways.

BECAUSE we wanna make it easier for girls to see/hear each other’s work so that we can share strategies and criticize-applaud each other.

BECAUSE we must take over the means of production in order to create our own moanings.

BECAUSE viewing our work as being connected to our girlfriends-politics-real lives is essential if we are gonna figure out how we are doing impacts, reflects, perpetuates, or DISRUPTS the status quo.

BECAUSE we recognize fantasies of Instant Macho Gun Revolution as impractical lies meant to keep us simply dreaming instead of becoming our dreams AND THUS seek to create revolution in our own lives every single day by envisioning and creating alternatives to the bullshit christian capitalist way of doing things.

BECAUSE we want and need to encourage and be encouraged in the face of all our own insecurities, in the face of beergutboyrock that tells us we can’t play our instruments, in the face of “authorities” who say our bands/zines/etc are the worst in the US and….

BECAUSE we don’t wanna assimilate to someone else’s (boy) standards of what is or isn’t

BECAUSE we are unwilling to falter under claims that we are reactionary “reverse sexists” AND NOT THE TRUEPUNKROCKSOULCRUSADERS THAT WE KNOW we really are

BECAUSE we know that life is much more than physical survival and are patently aware that the punk rock “you can do anything” idea is crucial to the coming angry grrrl rock revolution which seeks to save the psychic and cultural lives of girls and women everywhere, according to their own terms, not ours.

BECAUSE we are interested in creating non-heirarchical ways of being AND making music, friends, and scenes based on communication + understanding, instead of competition + good/bad categorizations

BECAUSE doing/reading/seeing/hearing cool things that validate and challenge us can help us gain the strength and sense of community that we need in order to figure out how bullshit like racism, able-bodieism, ageism, speciesism, classism, thinism, sexism, anti-semitism and heterosexism figures in our own lives.

BECAUSE we see fostering and supporting girl scenes and girl artists of all kinds as integral to this process.

BECAUSE we hate capitalism in all its forms and see our main goal as sharing information and staying alive, instead of making profits of being cool according to traditional standards.

BECAUSE we are angry at a society that tells us Girl=Dumb, Girl=Bad, Girl=Weak

BECAUSE we are unwilling to let our real and valid anger be diffused and/or turned against us via the internalization of sexism as witnessed in girl/girl jealousism and self defeating girltype behaviors

BECAUSE I believe with my wholeheartmindbody that girls constitute a revolutionary soul force that can, and will change the world for real.

  I'm back to being active on LJ again and that means I'm wanting this community to be active like it once was. I'm needing someone to help me moderate this lj community, if you are interested, contact me, through an livejournal Private Message, or through my livejournal, but not on the "friends only" or "grrrlesque" public entries, but some other public entry. So far, I only need 1 moderator. If the community grows later, I will need more moderators, but for now one moderator will do.

To be accepted as a moderator, Here are a few simple requirements:

1.) You must be a member of this livejournal community. I won't accept someone that isn't a member of this community as a moderator. If you want to be a moderator, join this community, and contact me through my livejournal or through a livejournal PM.

2.) Do not reply to my "friends only" or "grrrlesque" entries in my livejournal saying you want to be a moderator. Choose a different entry to respond to regarding moderatorship. If I decide to have you as a moderator, I will respond to you in a reply to your comment and we'll discuss other _kathleen_hanna community related stuff like: layout, userinfo bio section, interests section, banners for the community, etc.

3.) You should have "kathleen hanna" or one of her bands listed as one of your interests on your user info page.

4.) If more than one person wants to be moderator, I will contact each person through their livejournals or through a livejournal PM and ask them why they want to be a moderator. I will choose the best answer and they will be a moderator.

5.) If you ever leave this community, I will delete you as moderator. If you delete your livejournal, I will delete you as moderator.

6.) If you ever decide you no longer want to be a moderator for some reason, let me know and I will get a new moderator.

7.) If your interested in being a moderator, you can respond to this post instead of contacting me through my livejournal or through a livejournal PM. It's up to you.

talked about underground event the city has ever
seen. This very special night is part of the movie
premiere party of the Gits Movie and a vigil for
their front person, the infamous and sorely missed
Mia Zapata. There will be tons of giveaways
including two Daisy Rock Guitars, free makeup from
Urban Decay and MORE! You have NEVER seen this

  What does everyone think of the idea of having a Kathleen Hanna forum? The forum would be about Kathleen Hanna and ALL of her bands. (Bikini Kill, Julie Ruin, Le Tigre, etc.) Yes, I am very aware that this community is a forum for Kathleen Hanna, however, there are more Kathleen Hanna fans out there that are not on livejournal. If I get enough heads up for the idea, I will make the forum. If I don't get many replies to this post, then I will NOT make the forum.

I am thinking of using proboards or invisionfree for the forum provider. If anyone is interested in helping me out with the forum: layout, ideas, or being a moderator on the forum, Please let me know by replying to this post. Also, The forum will be discussed outside of livejournal, so if you really want to help out, please leave your email address in a reply to this post OR you can email me. My email address is listed on my profile page and it is the hotmail address and not the yahoo address. Thanks!
