I do not want to play shows with (knowingly) gross dudes. I will not play shows with gross dudes. Get the entire fuck out of here with this bullshit.
Rebloging this because I’m still pissed off because this guy acts like nothing was wrong about this. This is not a compliment. Not to mention, not the place to even give one.
I’m not here for you to gawk at while I’m playing a show, or attending one. I’m not an exotic animal that you think you can basically auction off to get dudes to come to a show. Do you even realize how deep rooted the sexualization of Black women even is, and how fucking gross and racist it is?
The tiny amount of women of color in bands are not here for this bullshit. We want to play music. We want to have fun. We don’t care about your dusty ass. We aren’t your fetish and you will NOT treat us like one. And you especially won’t treat me like one while I’m holding the mic. It’s not that hard to be a decent person, but if you can’t seem to find it in you, I have no problem kicking your ass.
