[Trigger Warning for Racism/Misogyny/Rape Culture]
Today’s cis-white-male-fail is brought to you by the band Swans who, though their music may be innovative, are about as typical as it gets when it comes to unchecked privilege, as proved clear by the fact that they have a song called Raping a Slave.
The lyrics are uneventful (basically just “You Burn Out Your Heart / You Burn Out My Heart” over and over), and apparently it’s about going to work.
That is so fucking inappropriate I can’t even… what? Unbridled entitlement + experimental guitar = Swans, ladies and gentlemen!
