Joan Jett’s jacket. Notice the pins.

"keep abortion legal"

"If she says no, it’s rape"

"Pro fucking choice"

This jacket is from about thirty years ago. These issues were big then. Thirty years later, these issues are still present. I was amazed to find these pins on the jacket, and realize this, because I would have thought, back then, if I was alive, that those issues would be solved by NOW.

But they aren’t. Joan Jett knew what was up.

Why can’t we take a minute and soak in her “bad reputation” and think about how in thirty years, abortion and rape culture STILL are huge issues.

Seeing Joan Jett tonight!

Happy Birthday Chester Himes! One of the more incredible and under-appreciated crime fiction writers who has contributed to the larger canon of the noir world, Himes’ work began in the 1940s and directly addressed race issues with honesty and blunt literary skill. Moving to Paris later, his work only continued to grow, enriching the genre with his detectives and autobiographical work. If you haven’t taken the chance to pick some of his work up, now’s the time! Plus…hello, he likes cats!

Chester Himes’ crime novels are great!
