People need to stop saying "HE DIDN'T INTENTIONALLY MISGENDER HER", like that's the fucking point.

Meant to respond to this.

That still doesn't take away from her claims to the issue at hand. Regardless of whether she was intoxicated or "annoying", she still made a coherent statement on why what...

What are you even talking about right now? Do you understand what it means to write lyrics that you want people to abide by and then you yourself don't apply them in practice? Did you even read...

You're not going to find out from the Internet. People will say they're the opposite of something to not feel as judged for an issue all the time.
