Nevermind About PWR BTTM

what i do find very strange is how immediately they’ve been condemned. obviously, it’s awful that this band that looked like they were opening up punk and mainstream music to LGBTQ people including trans people, gender fluid people etc and not just white gay men, turns out to have such a troubling past, but so many musicians, actors and other figures in pop culture have been accused of sexual assault and have faced not even a fraction of the backlash PWR BTTM has. maybe it’s because they weren’t very big yet, but i get this feeling that them being queer makes it much easier. i can’t think of a single cishet white man who’s faced this kind of reaction over assault allegations; if only this was the standard response.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
