but just in case

“I'm not ashamed to dress "like a woman" because I don't think it's shameful to be a woman.” Iggy Pop

A comment that encapsulates so many issues in our society in one line. I just love that statement (the photo is awesome too!)

Iggy Pop had several "relationships" with young teenage girls including Betsy after whom he wrote a song, who was 13/14 at the time. Forgive me if I ask him to hand in his feminist credentials at the desk on the way out.

Ugh, I didn't know that. That does take the shine off it...

Yes it does a bit. There were loads of 60s rock stars who had illegal relationships with underage girls. David Bowie, Jimmy Page, Marc Bolan, Bill Wyman and others.

Here, here and here (behind the pay wall) gives more information. It seemed to be very accepted then sad
