Based on one woman’s opinion (mine), let’s say there was a scale of things that are concurrently punk rock and female. Further let’s say that the scale runs from a Wendy O. Williams being beat up by the cops for “indecency” (10-totally punk rock) to Avril Lavigne for Kohl’s (zero-complete absence of punk rockness); Gorgeous Ladies of Bloodwrestling rates around a 3.2 (or, Grace Jones hula hoops at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.) That is, it might once have been edgy and a statement, but now it seems more like harmless fun and good exercise.
Thank you all who submitted, it's always a blast reading the entries. Check back here for the summer contest judged by Karen Thompson Walker, author of The Age of Miracles. If you haven't read it yet, go read it -- it's a great story about the slowing of the earth's rotation and will make you feel bad and ungrateful for complaining about the heat wave. And not appreciating gravity. Until then.
