Interviewer: "When did you start to think about sexism? Was it an outgrowth of your interest in punk?"
Kurt Cobain: "No, it was before that. I could never find any good male friends, so I ended up hanging out with the girls a lot, and I just thought they weren’t being equally treated and they weren’t treated with respect. I hated the way Aberdeen treated women in general - they were just totally oppressed. The words "bitch" and "cunt" were totally common, you’d hear them all the time. But it took me many years after the fact to realize those were the things that were bothering me. I was just starting to understand that was pissing me off so much, and in high school, I found Punk rock and it came all together."
