Punk is fiercely emotional for a lot of us, because we are tied so deeply to the community, and it can be hard not to take it personally and be defensive when something about it isn’t perfect. We owe it to ourselves not to be defensive, though. We owe it to ourselves to grow and learn together in this community, to listen to each other, to actually be as progressive as we said we’d be when we left the mainstream to come here.

This is from yet another great piece on sexism in the punk scene from I Live Sweat. As you may recall, we posted our friend Lauren’s interview a while back, but there are two other installments here and here.
