After reading Grimes’ blog, I no longer feel that she is one of the coolest females in music, she is probably one of the coolest people on the planet, therefore I feel compelled to writing something about her. It’s a lengthy rant about how she didn’t want to “compromise morals in order to make a living”, and saying, “I’m tired of creeps on message boards discussing whether or not they’d “fuck” me”, which is pretty big of her considering she is one of very few artists who refuse to be passive of the way they are treated in society, and more specifically, the music business. A few other artists have also addressed the issue of sexism in music, including ‘Deap Vally’, Angel Haze, Haim and Iggy Azaelia.
Why can’t there be more people like her?!
I hope Grimes’ blog inspires more people to stand against not only sexism, but discrimination in general, because after all, we are now living in the 21st century. Not the 19th.
There’s nothing so fundamentally uncool and dull as discrimination. Whether it be someone’s race, religion, gender or sexuality.
Nobody deserves to be treated as less of a person because of who they are or who they choose to be. Nobody.
