Men always say that as the defining compliment, don’t they? She’s a cool girl. Being the Cool Girl means I am a hot, brilliant, funny woman who adores football, poker, dirty jokes, and burping, who plays video games, drinks cheap beer, loves threesomes and anal sex, and jams hot dogs and hamburgers into her mouth like she’s hosting the world’s biggest culinary gang bang while somehow maintaining a size 2, because Cool Girls are above all hot. Hot and understanding. Cool Girls never get angry; they only smile in a chagrined, loving manner and let their men do whatever they want. Go ahead, shit on me, I don’t mind, I’m the Cool Girl.
Created in 2011 by several artists as a result of a UN-Women-sponsored workshop in Panama and attended by 30 artists from all over Latin America and the Caribbean region. It builds on similar efforts in the Caribbean, where leading musical artists organized around the UNiTE campaign after workshops in April 2010 and later recorded a series of public service announcements calling for an end to violence against women.
