Grimes Takes to Tumblr to Fight Sexism

Posted by - 10:25 AM on 04/24/13
Grimes has taken to Tumblr to express her dismay concerning the sexism and objectification that she has experienced since becoming famous. Read the full post here.
I donít want to have to compromise my morals in order to make a living...i dont want my words to be taken out of context...i dont want to be infantilized because i refuse to be sexualized...i dont want to live in a world where im gonna have to start employing body guards because this kind of behavior is so commonplace and accepted...Iím tired of men who arenít professional or even accomplished musicians continually offering to Ďhelp me outí (without being asked), as if i did this by accident and iím gonna flounder without them....Iím sad that my desire to be treated as an equal and as a human being is interpreted as hatred of men, rather than a request to be included and respected

I'm know you're trolling, but I'm not sure you're aware of how damaging comments like that are. You're contributing to the massive problem that is sexism.

It feels like a foregone conclusion, unfortunately.
