I wrote Grrrls because I hoped to spark discussion on these types of issues. Riot Grrrl was a safe haven for many, but unfortunately, that was not the case for some marginalized groups, like trans women. That said, I do not address the issue of transphobia specifically, but there is talk about how Riot Grrrl could be problematic due to its lack of inclusivity. Also, a couple of my characters deal with issues surrounding their gender expression—one gets criticized for being too feminine and another for being too masculine. (less)
