i’m posting these bc tawny seems to think they are very important and i’m sure other ppl will too. read from the bottom up/?? bc twitter is hard to screenshot, oh well
there’s plenty of mistakes in these bc i have trouble filtering myself before just tweeting, but i think my ideas came out pretty ok. i just saw an event that was about ‘saving’ “our” ‘music scene’ and that most of the attendees were men and that the host was a man, in a place not too far from my own, and i was reminded of these things. i want to talk to other people about this. it’s important to me. i feel like i don’t really get to talk to people that aren’t in my immediate friend circle (ie. live on the same street as me) and i want to talk. let’s have a round table.
new brunswick, 100%, has its faults, but instead of listing them all out myself as an individual, i wanna do things that will challenge those ideas and remind people that that’s not the way it has to be. create a new status quo.
devin is important this is important, new brunswick is great let’s make it better let’s make every punk scene better
Reblogging because this is a problem in every local scene everywhere and it sucks. More women playing music, more PoC playing music, more participatory action…more ppl getting off their booties and making stuff happen!!!!

Princess Day All Day! Woooohoo!
got my goddess blossom blooming and a shit ton of stuff to do today.
all the sudden it feels like I got way behind
Think about the first name you were ever called,
and then think how long it took until
you got called a pussy
or a slut,
or a bitch,
or a whore,
all of which are words that fall too close to ‘girl.’
Think about the first time you got called a ‘girl’
and they said it with a sneer.
Like it was a bad thing.
For a boy, it is the lowest degradation to get called a girl.
For a girl, it is the lowest degradation to get called a girl.
Remember, black widow spiders and female praying mantises eat their partners after intercourse.
Remember, it’s the lionesses who hunt.
They come back with bloody muzzles, dragging bloated carcasses as the alpha lion strides around with his mane puffing out.
Remember, it’s only the female mosquitoes who drink blood.
We’re the ones who do the necessary work, dirty our hands,
fuck or fight or both.
We’re often the smaller sex, which makes us a harder target
as we slink close and sink our teeth in.
Remember: we’re deadly.
You should be proud to be called a girl.”
