The rant was not racist.

Also it appears that the misgendering was an accident, and not intended to discount their status as a transgender individual.

Physical violence is never the answer.

The band member was not being racist, but that's kind of nullified when he decided to punch someone he disagreed with.

I chalk it up to shitheads being...

That's a valid criticism.

I personally don't believe that their silence on the matter is egregious enough to necessitate boycots, but obviously a lot of people have issues with what they said and...

Another day, another thread full of people going completely over the top with their assertions about what makes someone a "rape apologist".

Your heart is in the right place, I don't think anyone can...

"Smack That" has now become the most important song of all time. Literally so good that it allowed people in Africa to have electricity.

Horrible. My thoughts are with the victim, and I hope that Ronnie gets the book thrown at him.

It's so unsettling knowing that people like Ronnie Radke, Austin Kerr, Austin Jones, Jake McElfresh and Harry Corrigan will never go away.

I really have no clue how you guys have any hope left at...

I'm not hopeful whatsoever that it's going to get better. More power to you for having faith, but this is a terminal diagnosis for the scene.

I'm not sure how you can stay invested in the "punk" genre at all when every single band is complicit in these behaviors.

You can burn it to the ground, but you can't build it back up again. The...

Based on the precident that has been set in this thread and others, shouldn't the entire "punk" community be condemned and blacklisted?

Everyone is connected in some way, therefore everyone is...

To be fair, nobody would have remembered.

Especially because the story disappeared almost immediately after it came out.

It's not about me. I never claimed it to be about me.

I felt the need to apologize for my actions. If you want to spin that as ego stroking, go ahead.

The thread stays; I'll continue to comment as...

It will take some time to get used to, especially since I tend to take everything super personally, but I'll come around.

I apologize if it seems like I've invalidated anything you've said. In the future I'll definitely keep what you said in mind and be more sensitive to that - I definitely didn't look at it that way.

I absolutely agree with you. I'm not trying to hijack anyone group's movement, I want to be an ally only - it's not my place to be a leader.

I appreciate the response. I did not mean to come across as self-centered, because that's totally contradictory to the way that I actually wanted this thread that goes down.

The threads in question on this site have been long gone, and those not on this site are in Facebook groups I no longer belong to.

How so? I don't see the harm in apologizing.
