"Yes, poor little old you. There we were, discussing rape, violence against women, systemic oppression and other manifestations of sexism, and you had to jump in to remind us that “not all men” do these things. Why don’t you really say what you want to say? “I HAVE NEVER RAPED/HIT/ASSAULTED A WOMAN!” Right? Isn’t this what you really want to say? Yes, make a discussion that is about the plight of MILLIONS of women about poor little old you. I mean, millions of women are being assaulted and oppressed, but you’ve never done it, so why are we making you uncomfortable with these discussions?”
Brenda Wambui breaking down the ridiculous “Not all men!” phrase over at Medium. Top-notch work. (via itmac)

here are some things catfish & the bottlemen said in an interview:

Jake Bugg is the same kind of person as us” (he is also a boring misogynist, well spotted)

"we’re very much outcasts" (you are a band who tells girls in your crowd to get their tits out)

"we’re not trying to be interesting, just trying to be quite straight down the middle" (to be fair, this is accurate and relatively astute. you are not interesting.)

"I’m not really into bands thinking outside of the box too much" (GENUINELY INCREDIBLE)

they are truly the gift that keeps on giving.

amazing, honestly.
