Read this backwards because I really just took a screenshot from Twitter but it is an IMPORTANT thing. Do not be an asshole at shows, don’t go feet first into the crowd, don’t blame women when they get hurt at the front for not being able to take it. THIS IS A PUNK SHOW, TAKE THE SHIT ELSEWHERE. Well done Joyce Manor.
I say this ALL the time but consideration for others is fucking punk rock. Remember it and don’t call anyone a pussy who tries to stick up for women at punk shows. We should just all take over the front.
Seriously. Fuck anyone who takes issue with being considerate of others and their safety. Especially the safety and wellbeing of those in the scene who are of oppressed backgrounds (female identified, queer, PoC, disabled, et al) being as punk isn’t the most friendly and inclusive place as it is made out to be. Go take your shitty white boy club somewhere else if you disagree with any of this.
My respect for Joyce Manor just skyrocketed. Thanks dudes for doing the right thing.
