90s feminist

i’m definitely a feminist. I’m fucking disgusted by the way women are still treated. It’s 1993 and some people still think we’re in the 1950’s. We need to make more pregress. There needs to be more female musicians,more female artist,more female writers. Everything is dominated by fucking males. And I’m sick of it!.

In the ‘90s, it was a different world. Somebody said, “She must have taken singing lessons because now she sounds like she can sing.” I just hadn’t been using that part of my vocabulary, and I let myself use it during Reject. That was the record that people said that about. “Oh, she can sing now.” I could actually sing before, too. Women are told we have annoying voices, and that’s why I didn’t want to try to make it pretty for people.
