Just in case you needed any more proof of why feminism is still a fucking necessity.
Go watch her play the cover HERE and tell me she isn’t fucking talented as fuck… on another video of hers, where her cleavage isn’t in plain sight, comment after comment is “where are the boobs?!”
Reblogging to give her some proper publicity. She really is amazing at that guitar.
People wonder why I am a feminist. These guys are disgusting
straight cis men are fucking gross and extra
I saw a comment that was like “If she doesn’t want people looking at her boobs why does she have them peeking out over the guitar??”
UM have you ever fucking PLAYED a guitar with DD+ cup breasts because having them over the guitar is literally the only way to play comfortably, and personally if I’m uncomfortable I can’t focus as much on the music.
I don’t see it talked about as much, but male musician culture is very similar to male nerd culture in that women are accused constantly of being fake musicians or fake fans to impress men.
As a female musician, I am constantly talked down to and interrogated by crusty straight white boys who only know how to play Wonderwall, and asked if I’m carrying my boyfriend or dad’s guitar case. I’ve been told several times I should give up music because I’m “not hot enough”. I’ve had that yelled to me when I’m on stage.
but on the other hand, I’ve also received comments similar to this when I posted a video of myself playing a song while wearing a low cut tank top (even though I was about 14 or 15 years old at the time). I once sent a male friend a video of a song I’d written and asked what he thought, and his reply was “Meh, it’d be better if you played it naked”. (The same guy later told me that female musicians were a joke. We’re not friends anymore btw)
Sorry for the rant, this just pisses me off so much.
I’m always saying ‘There are good, decent men in the world.”
And then something like this appears and I just want to head-desk.
