All 4 Other Members of Screeching Weasel Drop Out

All members of Screeching Weasel besides Ben Weasel have dropped out of the band, a decision they made public with a statement to Punk News.

Awesome. Glad to see that not everyone involved with Screeching Weasel are irredeemable jackasses! The fact that these guys, who just released a new album and are going to lose quite a bit of income over this, are willing to not only pull out of Weasel Fest but, at least for now, pull out of the band, really makes bands like Banner Pilot look even worse for their refusal to do so.

Though, of course, I don’t expect a single band to actually call out Ben for his trans-misogyny (a fact that is becoming more and more public given how many views the posts I wrote about that subject, along with posts others have written about it, have received), because most bands don’t even pretend to care about transgender men and women.
