I TOLD YOU!

FACT: every half punk straight girl has been gifted a copy of Bukowski's Women by a dude who she liked during high school . And though initially touched by this gift, soon realized how greatly we were not understood if he thought this might be a good gift, and that realization was soon followed by another that in fact this gift was not about us at all. Ironically, a book about a grode old drunk vomiting onto women he hates while he's fucking them only served to re-enforce to budding teen riot girls that the grown-up world was as hatefully imbalanced as the Bikini Kill demo made it out to be.

Knock three times softly if this is your story too.
