The Riot Grrrl Add Me Community
|||||Slow Ride by Foghat||]|
Name: Simona (aka Squee)
Sexuality: Pansexual, Queer
Religious Affiliation: Progressive Jew
Dis/Abilities: Moderate Hearing Loss, PTSD with depression and panic attacks
Interests: making digital art, listening to music, reading tons of books, getting body mods, playing with puppies, chilling out in NYC
Favorite Bands: Janis Joplin, Joan Jett, Bikini Kill, Aerosmith, Alanis Morissette, The Beatles, Lynard Skynard, Type O Negative...the list is random and endless
Journal: My journal is restricted access. I am an abuse survivor currently dealing with formerly repressed memories, so I write to cope. No offense meant.
How long I've been into riot grrrl: I was introduced to riot grrl and punk when I was around 14 at sleepaway camp, of all places. I wrote 'zines when I was in junior high and started listening to grrl bands, which progressed into goth music. I'm more goth than punk, but I love me some third wave feminism. ;) I'd love to talk to some people in this community. I used to have a website for women dealing with PTSD and trauma, but it's down. I'm hoping to create some form of activism project to continue that work. Lemme know if you're interested.
Nice to meet y'all! *snug*
