  • Chloe Elizabeth November 29th, 2011 8:16 PM

    Actually not sad to see this month go. To me, girl gangs are more like exclusive cliques who are mean to everyone not like them. Even nice girls get snippy when you throw them into a gang. Loved Secrets theme SO much. I miss that one.

  • claireyay226 November 29th, 2011 8:32 PM

  • Smearo November 29th, 2011 10:05 PM

    This is so cute! I’m bummed that I didn’t know about this at the time, though; I would have submitted a picture of my awesome girl gang.

  • Marie November 29th, 2011 10:52 PM

    I’m crying! Sorry such a WUSS

  • Minna November 29th, 2011 10:57 PM

    THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER. I love the girls who formed a Riot grrrl club at their school arrrrrgh!!! so cool. Oh sorry I mean it’s “LITERALLY THE BEST THING EVER.”

  • Emily Condon November 29th, 2011 11:38 PM

    I wanna hotpot!!!

  • Jenny November 30th, 2011 12:12 AM

    Oh my god. Hot pot is the ultimate girl gang activity. I just did it last night with my FAMILY GANG.

  • Hedwig November 30th, 2011 12:21 AM

    I love how they are all so different <3

  • Billy November 30th, 2011 12:34 AM

  • Eleonore November 30th, 2011 12:37 AM

    so happy to see my submission up here. rookie is literally the best thing ever and I have a total friend crush on it.

  • LittleRed November 30th, 2011 4:25 AM

    I’m a girl with no girl friends. In high school I always hung out with boys only. I’m now somewhat sad about that – feeling like I must have missed out on something good!

    Ps loving the yellow jumper in the last photo. X

  • samhatt November 30th, 2011 6:05 AM

    so nice seeing this : )

  • Naomi November 30th, 2011 6:44 AM

    i think the right word for this is EPIC

  • Motherfunker November 30th, 2011 7:24 AM

    I want to be part of the girl gang in picture number three. badly.

  • jackie November 30th, 2011 8:11 AM

    i wish i could get a photo of all of these girls together because my of girls at my school formed a girl gang “the west end girls” considering our school is in the east end and we all live in the same neighbuorhood. I wish w could’ve gotten a photo so badly!! Oh man, but this is the greatest; really.

  • Emma S. November 30th, 2011 8:16 AM

    This rules. Is it too late for me to join the Girl Scouts?

  • softinvasion November 30th, 2011 9:25 AM

    so i get that chinque means five, but i still feel really uncomfortable that they didn’t pick a different name for their team.

    you wouldn’t want to be on team ‘faget’ or team ‘nigroe’ even if it meant something special to you in another language, because in english, those terms are really offensive and can be misconstrued. the fact that they (nor rookie) considered (or cared?) how hurtful this could be if misinterpreted by asian people is at best lazy and at worst, racist.

    • Anaheed November 30th, 2011 2:56 PM

      If they were actually making a racial slur, we would have a big problem with it! But the chance that someone might misinterpret this perfectly innocent word is so extremely tiny that we’re totally fine with their T-shirts and their name and their awesome gang.

      • softinvasion November 30th, 2011 5:29 PM

        well then im glad my taking offense as an asian american means so little to you.

        im obviously not welcome here so i’ll take the hint and not continue reading rookie. i don’t wish to be a part of a community that privileges ignorance and doesn’t care whether or not it perpetuates it, especially under the guise of feminism / youth empowerment.

      • Anaheed November 30th, 2011 5:34 PM

        Of course everyone, even someone who is offended by something on our site, is welcome to read and comment.

        I don’t, however, think that trusting that teenagers will understand that “chinque” = cinque = 5 means we are perpetuating ignorance.

        I’m sorry to have caused offense.

  • coolschmool November 30th, 2011 10:00 AM

    you people, you are all so beautiful and perfect and I have crushes on every single one of you <3

  • Tasya November 30th, 2011 10:46 AM

    really great pictures!! wish i had a girl gang :-(

  • potameides November 30th, 2011 10:55 AM

    I loved looking at these. I’m 22 now and haven’t ever really had a group of good girl friends. My friends now happen to be mainly men. It looks like they’re having great fun!

  • tinytractor November 30th, 2011 12:53 PM

    I hardly think Team Chinque is offensive…

  • julalondon November 30th, 2011 12:56 PM

    OMG i was so sad when i was looking at nr 46 BECAUSE IT WAS THE LAST PICTURE!! This is the best best best best best post EVER, you are all soo unbelievably amazing, this was one of the most inspiring things. Thank you so much! =)

  • saranev November 30th, 2011 4:02 PM

    All of these are so beautiful!

  • Betteo November 30th, 2011 4:37 PM

    In Italian the number five is spelled cinque.

    • Anaheed November 30th, 2011 5:20 PM

      I think they spelled it with a ch so people would pronounce it correctly.

  • jessejames November 30th, 2011 6:24 PM

    Awwww, I wish I’d sent in pictures….

  • FashionHauties November 30th, 2011 7:38 PM

    This is so great. How many people is in everyone’s girl gang? Well, I have a girl gang of 2,3, and 5. :)
    Here’s a photo shoot of MY (2 person) girl gang:

    I love this! Great job once again, Rookie! :D

  • diana94 November 30th, 2011 7:50 PM

    this is awesome! my girl gang is in the 39!

  • sissi November 30th, 2011 8:01 PM

    This if great. This month’s theme has inspired my friends to start our own girl gang. we named ourselves “The Darlings.” We all love Rookie and hope that you guys have a nice, long run.

  • Adrienne November 30th, 2011 8:36 PM

    Yay! Thanks Rookie for putting these pictures up!! As a reader, I’m really happy that my pics are on such a great mag! My pics are #23.

  • Filia-Zissy December 1st, 2011 10:40 AM

    I borrowed “The sisterhood of the traveling pants” again from the library. I love the style of Tibby.

  • airheads December 2nd, 2011 12:56 PM

    These pictures made me smile. And I would like the girls who dressed up as Twin Peaks characters to be my new best friends, please.

  • Mary the freak May 16th, 2013 4:53 PM

    Now I feel like SO ANTISOCIAL. I wish I had a proper rookie grrl gang. but two weird grrls (me and my best friend) count as a girl gang, don’t

  • Lydia Jane November 11th, 2013 11:49 PM

    Wish I had a girl gang, aw.
