Rude girls aren’t the antithesis of feminism. They aren’t even a different form of feminism. I am hesitant to label women of color’s efforts to survive and carve a place in the world anything as flawed as feminism because things really just tend to be larger than the labels we give them. A rude girl is just the girl you need her to be, point blank. Get into her narcissism, her cockiness, her sex-positive approaches. Honey, really get into the way she tears down obstacles–with a little flair and whole bunch of attitude. Even if you can’t hang with her, you can hang with the way she handles her shit–because it’s the way we sometimes want to: open and blunt, with the tell-tale knowledge that she is, and will always be, the shit.

Michelle, “An Ode to Rude Girl Anthems
