Pedro already got enough shit for absolutely nothing,
and you can find proof on discogs where I'm backing him up for being the kindest person ever,
an absolute gentleman to my 3 ladies (just like you btw, but yeah).

This bullshit makes me not want to post on here.
I've not been on here for ages as sometimes I feel like I'm trying to prove a point that fundamentally as males you will never see as it's never affected you.
It's boring and I'm tired of it.

I started coming here from pure, unwavering love of techno and to always see posts on why "Girls" don't like techno bothers me.
Go ahead and tell me I'm wrong. Call me a snowflake and tell me it shouldn't bother me. Unless you're female, with the best will in the world, you're never going to get it.

Whatever really.

If you actually bothered to read the posts you'll see that 99% of us males agreed with you. Then the rest of the posts were about the EU, jews, the man-train whatever. In fact anything but the OP mostly.

But if you want to stick to the narrative of us vs you, then go ahead.

Of course, it's not the narrative I want to stick with. I used to like coming here.

I’m fed up with seeing it and having to consider it. It highlights more of an issue of just preference of musical taste, issues that are shit and gender-specific.

I feel like I've been through this all with various people on here, yourself most certainly not included.
I'm not asking for a safe space, I'm not asking for censorship and I don't hesitate in calling anyone of you a lovely cunt or simply just a cunt but its tiring and I don't really have the energy for it anymore.

And I think you'd be surprised. Most people have empathy.

To simply state 'You'll never get it because you aren't x' is quite frankly bullshit.

I'll never know the majesty of looking down on planet Earth cos I'm not an astronaut maybe 'technically' true, but because of millions of years of evolution, I have a pretty good idea what that feeling is like.

But. You can think about it this way. You can either spend worthwhile time confronting issues that you think are bullshit, or do nothing and let those issues go unchallenged and take the easy way out.

The choice is yours.

I call out issues on a daily basis. More than once a day on most days.

I work in a predominantly male-dominated industry. I've had my technical ability questioned, based on nothing more than my gender. I'm more technical than 95% of the people I work with. I don't know of this ever being the case with any of the males that work here.

There are particular nuances in terms of the experience that you just won't get, not from willful ignorance but from experiences that you will have never had, based on your gender. That's coming from the same place as there are experiences I'll never "get" as I'm not male.

I'm telling you how it feels, how it makes me feel.
I don't look at you as the other side or see it as me vs you and everyone else.

I'm simply saying that I want to come here to talk about techno. To talk about production, to pick up some more skills and tips and I don't want to have see that shit from the OP when I come on here. It signifies more than just that one post, to me and yes, I know that's my issue but it's my issue for good reason.

You need to speak to my missus, next time we are at the same event, have a chat with her.
Her job is basically Diversity, she`s a Steering Group Member for the European women's network group, and the Womens business something or other, they just did a big talk/seminar thing at Plasterers Hall.
She works all over the world running and setting up mentoring programs and diversity programs, making positive direct changes to business and stuff.
She laughs at us in the music industry, where everything is ass backwards (when she saw suggestions on here of "positive discrimination" she lectured me about the fact it is technically illegal under employment law.....
Anyway, if you are having issues in your job job, you should talk to her, at the very least your experiences would be interesting anecdotes to add to the body of work that the organisations she deals with use.
Seriously, have a chat with her next time we meet, she`s bloody amazing with all this stuff.
For a girl, obviously....
..
.
.
I mean, why I ever let her out of the fucking kitchen....

Imagine you got kids Stace.
Imagine you might even have a son.
You think you'd accept him saying to you some day :
"mam, you'll just never get that because you're a woman" ?

If I follow that line of reason, I might as well just stop trying to understand most of what goes on inside my girls,
and Jordan's mrs can just totally give up on grasping anything that happens to their kids...
Just like Jordan said : that's a bullshit excuse.

People just try to understand each other.
As much as I don't think the original question posted by OP makes much sense,
I can understand where he's coming from, and I think all he (ow, wait, HE, HE, HE) tried to do was understand his surroundings better. Whether or not that comes from a limited or wrong point of view, I don't know, but I doubt his original motivation was that wrong. I think he was simply just curious.
(and his brief recurrence here a relatively short time ago is a pretty good proof of how he's certainly not losing any sleep on the subject at all)

So... what are we gonna do ?
Are we really gonna blow it all up again, just like our whole politically correct environment just wants us, expects us to do ?
Or are we just gonna say "fuck all that shit", turn on the gear, and get back to making (and discussing) techno ???

Like a (most of the time) wise man here recently said : it only becomes an issue when you make it an issue.

;)
