"Maybe this'll inspire dudes to have their own brotherhood of the traveling pants festival. Let's call it . . . Dickfest!"
Because the punk scene isn't a dick-fest already? The purpose of having a female-fronted fest is because to give women their own space when we are constantly excluded in our community. Whether the author of this article is attempting to be playful or not, the mere suggestion of this is annoying and ignorant. You don't get to ask "well what about us?!" when everything is already centered around you. Although I'm not surprised after hearing that the person that held this interview actually asked Ms. Cruz why we "need an all-girl fest" when there aren't "all-guy fests". Ugh, Chase Kamp would have done a much better job with this interview.
