Top to bottom garbage post, especially because she is coming off the heels off of an acclaimed album. I don’t follow or try to seek out news about racism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, etc. for the specific reason that I don’t like being reminded that my identity as a biracial pan woman is the cause of ire for a lot of people; I like to believe in the best of people, and that they are capable of changing their minds because no one is borne unto this world with hating other people. But, let’s put a pin on that, I’ll address this later on why I’m so disappointed, especially now.

The Lana post and white people talking over the concerns of black women is the height of misogynoir. The entire first paragraph of her post invalidated everything she had to say regarding her art. The comparative suffering is unnecessary, and the framing of these, largely, women of color as jezebels that don’t receive any slates from society is entirely, observably false. Every single woman, yes, even the white ones, but it’s not about them, get pushback for trying to own to own their sexuality. But women of color are especially plagued with being treated as mere items in more recent history. Black women are jezebels, Asian women are submissive, Latina women are oversexualized, etc.

Now, going back to my extreme disappointment. Lana used to be one of my favorite artists. I loved the way her songwriting envisions the world that she’s built and the exquisite melodies behind them. I’ve spent most of my adolescence using Lana’s music as a backing track to unwind. Now, as someone that tries their very best to separate the art from the artist, I will now consistently be reminded of the trauma that she’s subjected me to when I try to go back to works of art that I know the ins and outs of.


Couple this with the fact that so much of her core fanbase is so willing to tell us to “read the whole thing.” I have, several times, just to make sure I was missing something, but the subtext in her message is clear. She frames herself as a “fragile” white women. One that is drowned out by “stronger women”—without a doubt referencing the women of color earlier in her post. This language is so triggering for me, and I’m sure many others.

Also, Lana, it is perfectly fine for you to glamorize abuse, the lolita kink, the whatever, but other women are allowed to call you out on it too. Your art is not immune from criticism, and while I enjoy your work, people are absolutely allowed to take what they’re given and then criticize it. Ultraviolence is, by all intents and purposes, an album that glamorizes abuse.

That all said, I’m sorry. But I’m going to have to take a step back from her work. I’m disappointed

So is this what ghost spends all his time doing?

 

Supposedly following "da libruls" . Is there an official meeting somewhere where "da libruls" make these decisions?

Its pretty sad that you follow it that hard.

 

That's an 8 page thread on a forum about 10,000 times bigger than this forum.

 

What would people say when they see you defending two white guys who hunting down and shot a black man, and saw you continue to argue that position for a THIRTY ONE PAGE thread?

 

Would that mean that the official position of right-wingers is that they believe it was okay for two white guys to hunt down and shot Ahmaud Arbery?

 

Just judging by a thread on this forum?

 

Who would go around following ANOTHER FORUM to find subjects to complain about in this forum? Isn't that like some old hag who visits other people so that they can come back to the house and gossip?

Don't let him take all the credit, you both made that thread a 31 one page battle of attrition to see who could go the longest.
