discopone

Discopone originates from a misheard lyric in the Madonna song Ray of Light.
The lyric is actually I feel like I just got home, but many hear it as I feel like a discopone.
A Madonna fan and literary scholar looked up pone in the OED to find that it is an archaic form of poon. Said scholar interpreted the word to mean a woman who enjoys an active social life, resists sexual objectification, yet is powerfully confident in her own sexuality.
An influential group of women on the eastern seaboard of the U.S. uses it with pride to describe themselves. Madonna herself is called the Mother Pone.
