This is the final installment of a week-long series of bands that only have women in them, but not the last band on here that that will meet that criteria, of course. If you're reading this as a guy who mostly listens to music made by men, or as a guy who argues with women on the internet (or in public or anywhere) about how they need to "chill out" when they bring up the topic of sexual assault, please go back and listen to the last seven bands I posted. If you're a guy who has a hard time closing your mouth and listening to women when they are trying to discuss serious topics, go back and read the lyrics of these bands. Please learn to talk about subjects like assault, rape, feminism, and the fuckin' patriarchy without being condescending, without talking over people, without lashing out and without resorting to violence and belittlement. I grew up in Alabama, internalizing negative views of women left and right from the moment I was born. It takes a lot of work to learn how to overcome this bullshit and treat all people as equals, but if I can do it, you can too. There is a reason that women are still singing about these issues in 2011 and you can either be the reason for that or you can help to be part of the solution.
If you want to get in touch to talk about any of this stuff (respectfully or otherwise), I'm open to it.
