Well … a lot has happened this week and, as can be expected, the majority of the links chosen for this round-up are US-election based. If you feel we’ve missed any important pieces on the subject, please let us know in the comments below.
As always, linking to articles does not mean endorsement from the F-Word and certain links may be triggering. We welcome debate in the comments section and on Facebook/Twitter but remind readers that any comments containing sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic or disablist language will be deleted immediately.
If you notice that we’ve missed out any important articles from the past week, feel free to let us know.
From the article: “When people suggest that punk, or rock, or music itself, will finally ‘start reacting’, what is really being said is that things will be so bad that straight white people will start noticing and doing something because the floodwaters have reached their door. People have been singing their struggle since the dawn of recorded music in America; we just chose not to listen, or got tangled up in some bullshit hand-wringing over whose music was ‘real’, whose experiences we were willing to take in.”

They have their lips slightly pursed and their eyes fixed on something outside of the frame of the photograph. A tear runs down their face, creating a pale ‘track’ on their cheek.
