Debbie Harry at the First Annual World Sleaze Convention, Wilmington Delaware, 1976, by Chris Stein.
“I’m not sure if there was ever a second World Sleaze Convention,” says Stein. “The convention itself was a gathering of people attracted to subculture, B-movies, etc.”
Let’s get one thing out of the way right now.
If you’re a man, you’re not gonna get it.
Some of you think you get it. You want to get it.
You listen, nod and say all the right things when we tell you our stories. But you still can’t actually know what it feels like - to constantly have your guard up. In parking garages, walking the street, even at work. I’m tired of trying to help men understand how it feels to be a woman.
Starting now, I’m doing what it takes to put the power in my own hands.
