Keith Morris needs to turn the sexism OFF!

Keith Morris of Black Flag, Circle Jerks, and the recently formed hardcore group OFF! was featured on Last Call With Carson Daly, along with the rest of the band. Unfortunately, when opening his mouth for something besides singing, he talked about “screamo/emo bands” on Warped Tour and said:

“If you’re a thirteen year old girl that’s cute and swell and wonderful, but…”

Not that tired, sexist cliche again. Yes, there are thirteen year old girls who listen to the bands he was describing. But go to any Warped Tour date and you’ll quickly see that there are just as many boys in the audience, let alone that the bands in question are composed entirely of men.

Hey Keith, maybe more young girls would feel drawn to bands like yours if you didn’t make condescending comments about them.
