Dear Lilith Fair,

The only barbie dolls (and barbie-like dolls) I had as a kid were Rocker Barbie and Jem (that awesome pink-haired lead singer of The Holograms). It makes sense, then, that in 4th grade I wanted to be a Punk Rocker for Halloween. When I went to school in my costume, a kid said to me, “You look like a hooker.” I said to him, “What’s that?” I don’t remember his exact explanation, but I do remember crying.

Dear Lilith Fair,

When Jewel came to my school I was a Cheerleader. Can you believe it? I have a song called “School” which talks about being a skinny cheerleader, as well as being called names in elementary school like “Human Barbie Doll” (because I was so “fragile like a doll”) and “Hooker” (because of a Halloween costume). ¬†Oh, those school days!
