I thought you said this was a girl's group.
It is. Aggie gets a free pass for being born with a clit.
Hey! He's not in a fucking circus, you can stop gawking at him.
Sorry, I didn't mean to look at you.
It's OK, I'm used to it.
Aggie's a tough one. Not everyone's got the balls to take it.
No pun intended, of course.

a girl becomes empowered by the itty bitty titty committee
This film rocks! I loved BUT IM A CHEERLEADER but i seriously think this film is better. great music, great acting, great love story and seriously important political message. I'm a big fan of le tigre and this movie is like the film version of their music. it's fun and political which is a rare combination that works. My mom saw it too and she was so happy to see a movie about young people caring about feminist politics. Melonie Diaz was awesome and Daniela Sea from the L word too played a great Iraqi war veteran who takes revenge on Washington for dismissing her under don't ask don't tell. I was also so happy to see Clea DuVall whom i'm in love with from but im a cheerleader. She is such a great actress and its nice to see her again in something lesbian since her work on hero's and carnivale. My only negative would be that its pretty short and i wanted more. the ending is so hilarious.I'll never see dc the same way again.
