Hey, it's not that I'm transphobic

It's just that I'm perceptive enough to tell the real trans* people from autogynephiliacs without even knowing or meeting them, and most of them fall into the latter camp. Also, I reserve the right to be transphobic to someone if that person was rude to me the same way I call rude Chinese people chinks when they start shit but I don't think Chinese people are chinks in general

This kind of activity is par for the course with Whirr, who have gained notoriety for their aggressive and offensive social media presence. In an interview with Noisey last year, guitarist Nick Bassett commented on their internet activity: He said that any lost fans were a result of “weeding out the pussies,” called their critics “absolute morons,” and, when asked if they reached a point where Whirr couldn’t sell any more records because of their behavior, responded: “I’d be stoked that we didn’t suck anyone’s dick as a band and were just real dudes being real. If we weren’t selling records anymore, that would be a wrap for us.”

but i def don't begrudge her for making a twitter to fire shots, no matter how futile. i don't really have an opinion on what she "should" do in that sitch since i'll never be in it.

yes lets debase all dialog to petulant namecalling because we don't know what it's like to be insulted by someone

the best part is that whirr was dropped by the label (proof that stuff isn't pointless) and THEN she made a brand new account to "fight back"

that's not social justice, it's just netphoria fighting on a larger scale

Time stamps say otherwise; she did her one-two punches before the announcement that whirr was dropped.
I'm much more protective of a minority voice so her adding her voice means something, although it doesn't seem like it does to you.

When did you start policing social justice btw; for how much you dislike it, you seem to have a lot of opinion about how it should be done.

Funny this happened now, just the other day I was thinking about the crap the hair metal bands would pull and how it wouldn't fly now. Like when Sebastien Bach wore the AIDS Kills Fags Dead shirt.

Part of me kinda misses bands being total fucking morons.

because its reached self parody levels and ppl justifying flame wars and insults is awful and not progressive. does more damage to the cause etc. ive already been over this a thousand times, to borrow your phrasing, are you dense?

the way you lot recast everyone who expresses misgivings with methods (eg telling ppl you will never meet to go fuck themselves) as "anti social justce" like you just did, show how insular and non progressive the movement is and i feel its more like a trendy hip thing to use to exclude when the mission statement is supposedly unity. i see so many pple use this to divide and demonize. tbh its like new athiesm: obnoxious self obsessed narcissism.

lthe fact that youdgaf about this bands rep until now is telling

im all about the cause, but like new atheism your delivery is shit and does harm

im also quite sick of the fact that my experiences as a mentally ill person are always discounted. is there a leaderboard for discrimination and opression, maybe some kind of metric?

i just dint understamd why everyone seems to want to balkanize and have forgotten gandhi and mandela

anyine who argues against this point is a stupid creep and i see it all the time "white man stop telling us how to behave!!!!" its sad, internet watps people into thinking being condescending and mean is progress and then wonder why whites keep acting like they are victims of discrimination.

i feel you, but it seems rock and roll is becoming socially phased out (as opposed to musically phased out) and i'm not totally hating it.

rock and roll is inherently based in machismo and sexism. like it or not, that's the roots of rock. (in advance of a future argument - indie pop with fuzzy guitars is not rock and roll).

maybe in another 30 years people will start realizing the same thing about rap and hip-hop. born out of bragging and expressions of machismo.

i mean people to this day still don't understand that "fight for your right to party" by the beastie boys was a satire.

i'm a big fan of their music; their personality (or that of nick bassett, who runs their social media) is awful.

That didn't fly back then either. Bach got absolutely destroyed for that and the media only stopped bringing it up once he donated a large amount of money to some HIV charity

Oh boo hoo hoo. I'm pretty sure most people are "mentally ill" in some way or another. The fact that you're disappointed that you don't get sympathy for it is pretty lame

that's because AIDS only existed in the 1980s. kind of like polio in the 1940s.

see? aggressive reductive discrimination like this if i say anything about it. its not abt sympathy, a word never used, its about avoiding disparaging, disrespectful comments like yours and how i face discrimination and unsolicitated advice and judgement for saying "i am bipolar"

thanks for providing an example if this kind of negartive behavior
