changing things? opting out? (punk rock and hip-hop too)

which goes over the same ground we covered in the past couple of years in discussions within the ladyfest collective:

and i’ve got “punk rock is ice cream-eating macho guys” and also “remember, kids, punks are macho!” :)

Dupa proiectii, muzica si party.
