Seven years I worry he'll just use to conjure up some new way to raise the bar for scumbags everywhere.

But I will say this much: I never have and never will wish violence or sexual violation upon...

Hitting that Monday night in BK for sure. And just two days after Kevin Devine? That'll be a great way to break my concertgoing dryspell.

That's some pretty solid middle ground, and I would love to see it at a show one day.

Beyond disappointing :-(

I'm glad he didn't hurt anybody, and hope that he'll find it in himself to take responsibility and address this with the fans. He's a hero to a lot of people.

I don't...

ehh.

I don't think you owe that to your fans, and any band that cycles out their worst material gets some points in my book. If a fan cares more about hearing a specific song live than...

Definitely totally indefensible, and I do agree with your earlier observation that many people will defend artists they particularly care about. I think it's a natural impulse to defend "your"...

In most cases I'd agree, but with respect to my criticism of Ryan I really don't. His violations are kind of Golden Rule-adjacent to me, and I certainly don't need to call up any of my female role...

I'm genuinely not sure what the problem with my original comment was. I meant "high horse" in its intended form, referring to the sense of superiority I think he projects. I meant "ugly" just as...

Bolded in order:

- Is it so impossible for you to read between the lines? My interpretation of what was REALLY driving his "kill all women" line led to a line of conversation that he responded to...

I agree completely. Similarly, I like it a lot when I see that kind of old material dropping off of setlists even if the band doesn't necessarily talk about it much.

It wasn't snark. It was an abject failure of an ally to act like one, and part of a pattern that Ryan exhibits very often.

Addressing ACA, you've said [my commentary in bold]:





Your "conversation" comprised two comments, both of which were unhelpful and neither of which treated him with the respect that his line of...

What he said in the first post he quoted you with, followed by his subsequent elaboration after you called him a dork:



How I interpreted that:

Then explain how so many other people in this thread were able to see that he obviously didn't use the phrase "kill all women" because he thought that's what misogyny actually meant. How come so many...

I agree with this totally, about misandry being equal only in a vacuum.

I think much of where the curiosity/uncertainty is coming from is the fact that it's very hard to get a grasp on all of the...

He may be singing about one woman at a time, but he also does it a lot and that pattern is disturbing at best. I get where you're coming from -- if he were in a relationship with a man, he'd still...

I had the same Simple Plan problem :-d

Cover was listenable though not a very interesting take... interpreting this full record is pretty ambitious regardless, so I'll probably listen to it all at...

ohh I didn't realize you were talking about the song itself. No arguments here about the lyrical content inducing many rolls of the eyes :-d
