Nice! There's a book of how to tour by way of grunge related things, though I haven't read it but I'm sure it's cool http://www.king5.com/on-tv/evening-maga ... 20454.html and we have a thread for grunge landmarks that you can look through http://grungeforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=22912

hmm... since KristinNirvana is a girl...
..is it correct to say a "man" to a woman? I know it's colloquial and it doesn't exactly refer to a human beeing with a tinky-winky hanging off its crotch... but it just sounds weird to me... :weird:

the same with 'guys'... I was surprised when my boss in UK called my crew 'guys' while it consisted of 3 girls and 2 boys;O :weird:

sorry for offtopic;O

But are feminists okay with it? Serious question.

Also I've mentioned a few times that my grandma goes to Washington every year to see her family up there, and they drive from Seattle to the little town the family is in. I've actually asked my dad if I can go, and I might be going sometime this year :) Time to prepare.

Yes. But of course feminists are diverse so you can't really say for all. Actually I remember hearing, I'm sure on one of the feminists sites I frequent, that it was a good thing because it's now becoming gender neutral. I'd say that's good as well.


Wooo, hope you get to go!

Short answer: no.
Long answer: Did a man say it? If so, no.
