Staff Playlists: Pussy Grabs Back

Staff Playlists is a music feature that allows our contributors to curate a playlist of their choosing. Up this week is music contributor Sienna Kresge!

Remember the good ol’ days, when women stayed at home ironing hubby’s button-downs, scrubbing the linoleum floor, and maintaining an eye on the chicken roast, all whilst looking effortlessly happy and modestly fuckable in their nylon stockings and A-line skirt? Yeah, me neither. And why? Because our foremothers have since inspired us to fight the system that tells us how to be female!

Unfortunately, even in the 21st century, freeing the nipple and hollabacking at catcallers haven’t been loud enough to drown out the noise of a fleshy Cheeto-turned-presidential-candidate glorifying the objectification and exploitation of women. On the contrary, the Empowered Woman of 2016 is tired of being treated like a piece of meat, and she’s ready to riot with the same explosive rage that causes men to fear the idea of a lady in office. Gone are the days of politely standing against the wall as the dudes rage out in the mosh pit; the girls are building a bonfire of bras, and they’re ready to smear expletives on the mirror in menstrual blood while they’re at it. (Just take a hint from Avril!)

It’s hard having XX chromosomes in the Y generation, but we’ve got some badass femmes making music who represent the enormous spectrum of powerful ideas and emotions that women are capable of. And luckily, they’re here to do it loud and proud. Women rock, and all you have to do is turn up the volume to feel that statement shake your bones faster than you can say, “Grab her by the pussy.”
