"Sometimes it’s not enough to know what things mean, sometimes you have to know what things don’t mean."
Bob Dylan (via quote-book)
"Sometimes women are just good at stuff on their own, but there are still people who think we’re just lurching from accidental success to accidental success, hoping a dude will come along and help us out and maybe also want to fuck us. Female musicians are constantly subjected to comments on their body, and restrictions on how their music can be perceived because they are women; being called “songstress” and “siren” as if they’re singing out of their sexy, sexy vaginas instead of their mouths like regular singers."
I wrote about Grimes’ open letter and the assumptions people make about women for Junkee.
