Wo­mans-plain­ing the mu­sic in­dus­try


Re­gard­ing Mu­sic Men Ru­ined For Me by Michael Ran­cic (NOW, Novem­ber 29-De­cem­ber 5). Let me wom­ansplain .... Be­ing in the mu­sic and en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try for 35 years, I can at­test from ex­pe­ri­ence that women are ’splain­ing as fu­ri­ously as men – steam­rollers come in ev­ery age, gen­der, size, shape, colour and na­tion­al­ity.

I’ve been mansplained, wom­ansplained and teen­splained (those teenagers have mouthy steam­rolling go­ing on!). Let peo­ple speak.

If they get ex­cited about a band and pas­sion­ate about mu­sic, how is that not fab­u­lous? Jump in and en­joy the con­ver­sa­tion, or blame ev­ery­one else for ru­in­ing your day. I guess you can al­ways do the lat­ter and pub­lish a zine.
