I have been to hundreds of shows varying from genre to genre. And at no point have I ever supported violence or negativity toward females. If anything as someone who has been a part of the local music scene for over 10 years in Florida I have never once said anything to condone such treatment where girls aren’t allowed to enjoy shows on an equal level. A good majority of my friends are actually females who go to shows regularly. At no point did I even say anything negative about the band other than the fact that the vocalist took the time to make a spectacle by stopping mid song to humiliate someone, who was a huge fan, early on into their set. Only to let everyone else after do the same thing without so much as a word. There were kids push moshing obnoxiously and causing more damage than one stage dive would have done and if he really cared about the safety of the females at the show he would have just told people to chill early on and just listen to the music like any normal crowd at an indie show would. I think what is being misunderstood here is the intent. Because at no point was Skylar doing anything to hurt anyone intentionally, he was only doing what we all regularly do at shows which is have fun. Something quite normal in underground music. My ideals don’t need to be questioned and I challenge you to not make assumptions or remarks that have very little to do with anything I said.
