Domestic violence > Odd Future > domestic violence groups

via www.wbez.org

One of these groups for women who got beat up (through no fault of their own, I'm sure) heard, probably via the official Teagan and Sara website, that OFWGYMCA's songs are about beating and raping women (in that order), and decided they'd better protest Odd Future's set at the Pitchfork Music Festival next month, where they were gonna be anyway.

They approached P-fork about getting their own tent, in the special area for that sort of thing, but the space had already been rented out by Peta. #priorities

Plus, I'm sure P-fork didn't want them agitating during Odd Future's set, messing up the show (even worse than it already is) for everyone else, just because they got beat up. Perhaps if they weren't so disruptive. #justsaying

So now the plan is to stand in the street outside the festival, with the neighborhood black people (my cousins) selling bottled water you can't bring inside the park anyway, via "beer sales," handing out 5,000 cardboard fans "with a powerful message about violence against women and resources listed on them."

Roffle.

If only the TIs didn't have me fired for talking shit about about OFWGYMCA, back before it was all trendy. Their set could actually be interesting!
