She is me
I am her
She is me
I am her siamese twin connected at the cunt
Heart brain heart brain heart brain lung gut

I want to kill her
But I'm afraid it might kill me

Feminist
Dyke, whore
I'm so pretty alien

She wants me to go to the mall
She wants me
To put the pretty, pretty red lipstick on

She wants me to be like her
She wants me to be like her

I want to kill her
But I'm afraid it might kill me

Feminist
Dyke, whore
Pretty, pretty
Alien

And all I really wanted to know
Who was me and who is she
I guess I'll never know

    General CommentI think this song is about one woman struggling with two sides of her personality. One side wants to be pretty and "girly" and the other wants to be "feminist, dyke, whore." I love how the song ends though, which I think kind of suggests that you can be pretty and a little girly, while still being a feminist or a dyke, or whatever you want to be. You don't have to conform to the standards society sets for you, you can just be a combination of many different things.

    General CommentI think this song is about women constantly having to struggle with what society wants them to be. It's like having a split-personality - one part is the 'bad' part of the woman (Feminist, Dyke, Whore) and the other is the stereotypically girly-girl (She wants me to go to the mall... To put the pretty, pretty red lipstick on).

    I love the last part :

    "And all I really wanted to know
    Who was me and who is she
    I guess I'll never know"

    It's as if the two parts of her have become so blurred together that she doesn't even know who she should be anymore. Both parts are part of her, but she struggles to survive with such contrasting characters.

    General CommentI couldn't agree more zeroglitter.
    'i want to kill her, but i'm afraid it might kill me.' could be suggesting even 'riotgrrls' have got this inbuilt 'girly girlness', none of us can truly be apart from, or escape from certain stereotypes which may be deemed less than desirable

    General Commentwell sweety i'm no dyke and i adore bikini kill and le tigre.

    and kathleen hanna is hella hot, but she doesn't like men so why would it matter if she's hot to you or not. even if she was up to your standards, you'd never be up to hers.

    General Commentlittlehugs, you're retarded.

    though i do agree with ndchicklette, i do have to point out one thing.

    kathleen hanna does indeed like men.

    she's dating a beastie boy.

    kathleen hanna is a goddess. littlehugs is a dumbass. maybe you could learn something from your, "dykey," mother.

    General Commentlittlehugs...you are an ass (and you're probably not hot either). This song is effing amazing. Bikini Kill in general is amazing. Good times man good times.

    General Commenthey littlehugs.

    since you've spent so much of your precious time crticizing kathleen hanna, i spent some of my time looking at all of your comments.

    i see you like nirvana, or at least think kurt was a reasonable guy.

    well i bet it would surprise you if you knew that kathleen and kurt would hang out together back in the day. yup, she actually came up with the inspiration for smells like teen spirit.

    oh and no, i don't burn my "braws" or my bras.

    i'm actually quite the opposite of the hippie stereotype you put on bikini kill fans.

    have a nice day.

    General Commentabout kurt and kathleen: i've read that kathleen and kurt hated each other. courtney and kathleen were like...arch enimies...ex: according to courtney love, kathleen hanna asked her if her baby was in a closet and on heroin, or something to that effect. kurt dated one of the members of bikini kill (i think it was tobi, but don't shoot me if i'm wrong) and when they broke up, kathleen hanna spray painted, "kurt smells like teen spirit," because that's the kind of deodorant kurt's ex used.
