Riot Grrrl United Feminism and Punk. Here’s an Essential Listening Guide. – The New York Times

This NYT article states: “Leapt upon by the media, riot grrrl disappeared almost as quickly as it materialized — too stubborn or scared to plunge or get sucked into the mainstream.”  Not so. Mainstream media in capitalist systems vampirize living systems, such as those forms or offshoots of alternative media that generate underground, including original genres like music and mimeographed publications.

Feminism and punk were generated underground. Once these were vampirized by the mainstream the vital information, knowledge, and experience that gave them life were coopted, for mass production and consumption, i.e. profit .
