Meu nome é Charlotte. Eu tenho sete anos e eu amo legos, mas eu não gosto que existam mais legos para meninos e quase nenhum lego para meninas.
Hoje eu fui à loja e vi legos em duas sessões, os rosa para garotas e os azuis para os garotos. Tudo que o que os das meninas faziam era sentar em casa, ir a praia, comprar e elas não tinham emprego, mas os garotos saia em aventuras, trabalhavam, salvavam pessoas e tinham empregos, até mesmo nadavam com tubarões.
Eu quero que vocês façam mais legos para garotas e as deixem sair em aventuras e se divertir, ok!?!
a list of woc and qtpoc bands would be amazing - are there any lists out there already?
Not that I know of! However, I’m gonna start one, right here, right now. I’m sure I’ll miss a few but I’m inviting everyone here to add bands they know. Below are some currently active punk/hardcore/indie/alt bands that are fronted by, or in which half the band is made up of, women of color and/or LGBTQ people of color:
“We have big plans for a grassroots, girl power, teenage girl movement of youth rebellion—jackets, we need jackets. The power of style must not be downplayed in terms of political mobilization. Can’t you picture it—gangs of girls—teenage girls in gangs all across america, breaking through boundaries of race and class and sexual identity, girls so strong together that they don’t listen to people who tell them they are stupid or that they don’t mean anything because they don’t really exist—girls so strong together that no one dares to fuck with them when they are walking down the street—girls so strong together that they learn to help out their moms and help them to get away from their dads when necessary….GIRL SOLDIERS….we need jackets. And just think of the books that will be written, the cultures that will arise, the bands, the movies that will be made etc.”—Tobi Vail, Jigsaw #4 (1991)
