Cross-pollination between scenes is still pretty rare in this day and age. Because there are so many bands—and so many of them have “teams” of managers, publicists, tour managers, label owners, and booking agents—every perceived mistake can be deciminated, analyzed and overanalyzed by literally anyone at anytime. That doesn’t mean that these bands are 100% risk-averse, just that there are more people than ever who depend on their success or failure.
I know it’s irrational but every time I see mary roach’s name I want to punch a fucking wall.
she touched a person’s genitals without their consent or knowledge and then -gleefully- recounts what is really assault in her book Bonk. and no on talks about it!! if it was a man touching a woman’s vulva without her consent or knowledge feminist press would at least mention that the author was problematic.
- white woman: men are awful
- white man: not all men!
- white woman: yes but enough men so that i feel endangered, your comment is unnecessary and derails the dialogue of women's issues that i am attempting to engage in
- person of color: white people are awful
- white woman: not all white people!
