Cooties zine was a feminist perzine which was published by Kate Cooties from 1993 until 2000.

She lived on the East Coast of the United States.

One of her articles specifically concerned the Tidewater area of the state of Virginia, and prejducied attitudes towards women in the hard core punk scene. The article was entitled "The Tidewater Boy's Club". (Aside: some similar issues were addressed in a part of "All Ages", a book by Beth Lahickey).

In another article she covered the hypocrisy of a friend in the scene who she said tried to rape her.

She was into straightedge (sXe) and veganism. She later started a website.

Kate also spent some time on IRC (Internet Relay Chat).
