Heard Nirvana on the drive home after class. Once upon a time…I was cool(ish). I saw Nirvana in concert when I was 14. 
Kurt was a feminist. I wonder how he would rage against the machine if he were still alive? 

I love this! Makes me love Kurt even more.

Does it count as sexual assault if the woman really did not mind it?

I am referring to that famous picture, from the end of WWII, taken in Times Square. It’s of a male sailor passionately kissing a woman. The woman was a stranger, and he was in fact there with his fiancee. The end of the war had…
