Just because there are a bunch of Soul Punk-era pics on my dash right now, and it’s making me nostalgic… remember that time when Patrick Stump stopped by the bench outside Tipitina’s where we were hanging out, waiting for the show, and chatted about Treme and the history of blues music in New Orleans in general and that venue in particular?

Soul Punk/Vices & Virtues touring cycle: best. ever.

On second thought, fuck you Puck Podcast, for minimizing misogyny and sexism as trivial problems that obviously only a “not attractive” female would waste time on in a world filled with bigger problems.

I was SO MAD about that. I listened at work, and I had to put my lab equipment down and go slam cabinet doors repeatedly before I could go back to delicate lab work.

Like, fuck them for acting like it was about her feeling uncomfortable about being the objectified lady, and then for speculating that maybe she was angry because she maybe wasn’t hot enough to be the one to be objectified, and that either way it was something she (we) should just accept because there are more important things to spend her (our) time and effort on.

Reposting, because I couldn’t embed from my phone this morning, and I can’t figure out how to embed audio in a reblog. The relevant portion of the podcast is maybe 40-45 minutes in.

Maybe I’m late to the party, but yeah. Puck Podcast mentioned the #banthestripper campaign in the news section of this week’s episode (posted August 18th at www.puckpodcast.com). And by “mentioned” I mean were pretty dismissive and offensive about it. They’ve said things that were borderline offensive and sexist in the past, but I gave them a pass. I’m pretty much done.

My feedback for them:

Dear Doug and Eddie,

I have listened to the Puck Podcast for years, but this week’s show brings that to an end. Your (Doug’s in particular) dismissive comments about the female Chicago fan’s desire for a less sexist environment at hockey games was absolutely offensive. You completely missed the point of her (and many other Blackhawks fans) request re: The Stripper and the formulaic selection of only very attractive, very well-made-up, tight-jeans-and-high-heel-wearing young ladies for Shoot The Puck, in addition to dressing the ice girls less provocatively.

It’s about representation, and about feeling welcome as a fan. These displays reinforce gender stereotypes and feed the male gaze. Telling women and girls that the only way they can participate in hockey is by being sexy is wrong, and if you think that that sort of attitude only exists in sports, you are sadly ignorant about the misogyny and harassment women face on a daily basis.

The Blackhawks front office is making a small change, but a positive one, one requested by fans who pay for the product they are marketing. But you felt that it was a subject for derision and chose to make jokes about her having too much time on her hands, and picking out equally sexist songs for Shoot The Puck.

It’s your podcast, you can say what you want. I don’t pay for it as a product, so I have no say in the content. But I do have the power to stop listening, and that’s what I’m going to do.

AMPLIFY, PLS, IF YOU LISTEN TO THAT PODCAST.

ETA: And let them know how you feel about it by emailing them at feedback at puckpodcast dot com
I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged.
