A female Ska rave in Los Angeles is getting a lot of heat over its “Rape Culture” and its “Sara Goth” lyrics, but the band is actually the first to get slammed by the internet.
A video posted to Instagram by SkaRaveL.
A. in February shows a woman in a skimpy blue tank top and high-waisted leggings with a red bandanna covering her face being interviewed by a journalist for a feature article.
The reporter asks her if she would like to talk about the band’s music, which she does and says that it is “very misogynistic and sexual.”
She says that the lyrics are misogynistic because the women have no agency, so it is a “slanderous” statement.
“This is a very misogynistic band that has no voice,” she says.
“It is not representative of what I feel for women, who are just as strong as men.”
The interviewer says, “That’s not true.
We do represent women.”
She continues, “And we are women who do have voices.”
The reporter goes on to say, “This is why it’s not appropriate to say that we are all rapists.”
The woman then replies, “No, because I am a woman.
I have opinions.
I am educated.
Then, she says, she wants to know why she is being “sexually assaulted.”
The reporter asks, “What are you saying?”
She responds, “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
She adds, “But you think I am just saying that because I’m a woman.”
After the interview is over, she goes on a rant, saying, “If you’re offended by my opinions, don’t go on a social media account, because there are a lot more than a few of you out there.
Just stay out of my social media.”
It’s unclear how the article was titled.
But the headline, “Ska Rave L.A., California,” appears on the site and the Instagram post has over 2.5 million likes and 2,000 comments.
