this is the same guy whose drums I’ve heard during every commercial break since 2011 talking about devaluing music?

I think she may have been referring to all the other bullshit Pink has been saying lately, and this may have just inspired her. But I agree, critiquing Madonna’s work or just saying he doesn’t like it wouldn’t be misogynist unless he specifically stated that it was because she is a woman, did he? I didn’t read the article and don’t feel invested enough to do so, but who knows.

Madonna’s upcoming ‘Ariel Pink: Suck My Cock’ is my early hot tip for Christmas number one.

A woman was criticized in any way, shape, or form? MISOGYNY

What the fuck is wrong with people like you? I swear, in Stereogum thread about a woman some fucking idiot comes out of the woodwork and offers their opinion on whether or not they would fuck them. It’s deplorable shit, and I can’t believe there are people out there who think otherwise. And it’s especially fucked up to do so in this thread, where the person in question is making allegations of sexual assault. I know you probably think you’re so edgy and hilarious right now, but you’re not –– you are a sad piece of shit who represents everything wrong with the culture of internet commenters. If anyone wants to see what misogyny looks like, it’s right fucking here! THIS IS TEXTBOOK MISOGYNY. And people that propagate this type of bullshit should be banned, no questions asked. Like I said, this shit happens all the time in these threads, but I’m just going to heap my vitriol on you so I can go about my life and not spend hours a day hacking away at every dipshit anonymous sexist that thinks readers of an indie music website want to have to see this garbage. So fuck you, and fuck everyone like you. (Here’s an article for all of you cretins to read if you’re not convinced by my rant. Still not convinced? Well, fuck it, I tried. http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2014/10/the-unsafety-net-how-social-media-turned-against-women/381261/)

There was a secret summit last June that was attended by slightly more than 310 indie musicians and bloggers, and at this secret summit, a devilish scheme was hatched. Roughly half of the musicians were designated team Troll and the other half were designated team Anti-Troll. Team Troll’s mission is to make offensive comments that generate content for the blogosphere. Ariel Pink, Mark Kozelek and Julian Casablancas are obviously members of team Troll. Team Anti-Troll’s mission is to accuse team Troll of bigotry in a way that also generates content for the blogosphere. Grimes and Meredith Graves are, of course, members of team Anti-Troll.

FAQ

How do I know this?

I was there.

What do the participating musicians get out of this?

Money. It’s all about those Internet advertising dollars.

Why hasn’t anybody revealed this until now? I believe that music bloggers will do anything for a buck, but surely not every indie artist is so cynical.

That’s true. There were people who would not participate. Non-conformers like Adam Granduciel had their memories erased by [REDACTED]. (It was revealed at the summit that [REDACTED] has reptilian DNA that gives him uncanny powers of hypnotism.)

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

Right there with you.

I feel like Ariel Pink is some art house project wherein the artists is testing the limits of white hipster foolishness. People are forcing themselves to listen to his music when it in fact sounds like absolute shit. Seriously, there’s no way you enjoy his albums. There is absolutely NOTHING brilliant about this dude? Not the lyrics or the sound quality for damn sure. This is music for registered sex offenders and those who enjoy their company.

But since the “cool kids” keep coming back, Pink has ratcheted the shittiness up with some added misogyny. No doubt his final grand gesture will be making racist comments about how this or that black artist is overrated. I’ll go with Beyonce, as he seems like too much of a weasily punk bitch to step to a dude.

#3 tg2244 | Oct 14th Score:-26

LMAO Right, because THAT is the only way racism manifests itself. “I think so and so has no talent…..BECAUSE THEY ARE BLACK.” You are either naive or hopelessly white in your life experiences if you think that ANYONE in today’s day and age would express themselves as such. It’s why the “he didn’t say Madonna sucked because she’s a woman” comments are laughable. Today’s bigots express themselves carefully, so as to run and take cover when they are called out.

You’re trying way to hard man. It must be fucking miserable to force yourself to listen to terrible, awful fucking molester music just so you can one up your friends.
