Hi guys!✨ I finally decided to start taking orders for the creation of details from the costume of Moxxi from Borderlands / Borderlands 2 / Borderlands 2 DLC Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep (Red❤ / Purple💜 / Tavern💘)
“I wanted to make something that I wanted to hear that I wasn’t hearing.”
Happy Moxie Monthly! As
release date approaches, we’d like to honor a Moxie girl central to our story:
Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill! Instrumental in the beginning of third wave
feminism and the inclusion of women in punk, her title of Moxie girl is well deserved.
And while most know her iconic songs and what she stands for, we’d like to dig
a little deeper and show you how she got where she is today.
Kathleen Hanna was born in
Portland, but spent much of her early life constantly on the move. At age 9, she
first became interested in feminism when her mother started attending rallies
and reading feminist publications. The two quickly bonded over feminism, her
mother checking out feminist literature like The Feminine Mystique and
subscribing to Ms. Magazine, and young Hanna cutting up those magazines to make
her own feminist posters and collages. The two had to hide their new interest
from Hanna’s disapproving father until the divorce.
Her passion grew every year,
and she began to express her experiences and frustrations with sexism in other
mediums. In college, she and a friend set up a photography exhibit dealing with
subjects like sexism and AIDS; it was promptly taken down by the school, and
Hanna cites this act of censorship as her first foray into activism. She also
got into spoken-word poetry, but finally switched to music after a discussion
with feminist writer Kathy Acker, who admired Hanna’s desire to express herself
but noted that she’d be better off in the music scene where she’d have more
She started and played in
many bands, including Amy Carter, The Julie Ruin, Viva Knievel, and finally,
Bikini Kill, which became a staple of the Olympia music scene in the 90s. She
and her band emphasized political action, awareness, and empowerment of women.
Her songs, zines, and ‘girls to the front’ ethos not only encouraged women to
enjoy punk, but helped keep them safe while they were doing so, out of
dangerous mosh pits and safe from harassers.
Looking back, Hanna
acknowledges criticisms of the riot grrrl movement as a largely white, cis, and
middle class movement and regrets it was not more inclusive. She looks forward
to new projects, like the People of Color Zine Project, that aim to make riot
grrrl intersectional and accessible to all.
And although that about sums
her up, we can’t get enough of Kathleen Hanna! So before we go, here are 5 fun
facts about this riot grrrl:
invented the title of “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. Referring to the
deoderant, Hanna scrawled “Kurt smells like teen spirit” on his wall.
battled Lyme disease. The chronic illness made it difficult & even
impossible to play some days, but she was pronounced Lyme free 2015.
a hostess at a gay bar. Her signature hostess songs were The Clash’s Should I
Stay or Should I Go & Kool and the Gang’s Celebration.
biggest feminist issue to her is poverty “because if you’re just trying to
put food on the table, you’re not part of the conversation.”
still making music! Julie Ruin reunited and released an album, Hit Reset, just
Vivian Carter is fed up.
Fed up with a school administration at her small-town Texas high school
that thinks the football team can do no wrong. Fed up with sexist dress
codes, hallway harassment, and gross comments from guys during class.
But most of all, Viv Carter is fed up with always following the rules.
mom was a tough-as-nails, punk rock Riot Grrrl in the ‘90s, and now Viv
takes a page from her mother’s past and creates a feminist zine that
she distributes anonymously to her classmates. She’s just blowing off
steam, but other girls respond. As Viv forges friendships with other
young women across the divides of cliques and popularity rankings, she
realizes that what she has started is nothing short of a girl
This is a bit different from other fanwork, since it’s technically my own intellectual property, but like I said: It’s very Sherlock inspired. So we’re talking a detective and her blogger computer technician, just mates sharing a flat for convenience, confused sexual and romantic tension, obnoxious but entertaining villain, awesome fisticuffs, a damsel in distress trope… Need I say more?
As a TJLCer, I was compelled to chuck in a lot of visual symbolism and codes for my fellows to analyze as they please. It all points to gaytown, of course, but you knew that already since I’ve promised to do what the Beebs couldn’t (or wouldn’t).
Follow @moxieshortfilm for updates on the project if you’re interested. The film is coming out in late June.
And if you are actually interested, consider reblogging :)
