Do not fill this in!== Political Views == Cobain struggled to reconcile the massive success of ''Nirvana'' to his underground roots. He also felt persecuted by the media, comparing himself to '''Frances Farmer'''. He began to harbor resentments for people who claimed to be fans of the band yet refused to acknowledge, or misinterpreted, the band's social and political views. A vocal opponent of sexism, racism and homophobia, he was publicly proud that ''Nirvana'' had played at a gay rights benefit supporting No-on-Nine in Oregon in 1992, in opposition to Ballot Measure Nine, a ballot measure, that if passed, would have prohibited schools in the state from acknowledging or positively accepting LGBT rights and welfare. Cobain was a vocal supporter of the pro-choice movement, and had been involved in Rock for Choice from the campaign inception by ''L7''. He received death threats from a small number of anti-abortion activists for doing so, with one activist threatening Cobain that he would be shot as soon as he stepped on stage.
