"Feminism means women controlling their own lives, and me not standing in their way by being a male. It’s not so much of an ideal as a sense. It doesn’t seem like there’s such a thing as a recognizable feminist movement like there was during the seventies, more a collective awareness. It’s in the way you live your life. Being aware of not offending women, but not so you become paranoid that you can’t feel comfortable in a woman’s presence. Sexist jokes are harmless as long as you’re aware of them. I kind of respect people who go out of their way to act like an asshole when they’re really intelligent though, it’s a nihilistic statement, like they’re saying there’s no point in trying to be a human anymore because things have gotten so out of hand. It’s a very Punk Rock attitude. I’m not talking about sexism, but that kind of negative attitude when you’re no longer able to appreciate passion or beauty." - Kurt Cobain, 1992.
