Whilst reading the comments from many of our lovely AP.net users on a recent article written on Wondering Sound regarding the lack of women on the Warped Tour, I became quite surprised by the reactions that our user base was having.

If we can just be open to honest critiques of our scene, behaviors, language, mannerisms, etc. we can begin to change and create new ways of inclusion.

Aaron Scott (Attica! Attica!) recently wrote about sexism in the scene for the series of essays posted on I Live Sweat here.

In a new editorial, Lauren Denitzio (ex-The Measure) writes about her experience with sexism and misogyny in the pop-punk scene. Do you agree?
