Punk rock letter from Spare Rib, No. 80, March, 1979.
I am a feminist and a punk. I was at a Devo gig on Monday, and between sets I was standing eating chocolate buttons, when I noticed a guy eyeing me up. I think it was because I wasn’t wearing a bra. He came over to talk to me about the badges I was wearing. He asked me what my Spare Rib one meant. I said that Rib was a feminist magazine. He looked at me blankly so I said, “Women’s Lib”. He walked away. Pathetic.
I lost the badge pogoing later that night. Does this mean that punk guys won’t walk away from me any more?
