i know all of these things have already been mentioned, but i thought maybe asking as direct as possible might pull out a non-dodged response from the original poster?

I'm not going to be a male and write songs focusing on sexism from a woman's perspective, for a woman. If a female who does vocals so chooses to write about sexism, or racism, or making sandwiches, or counting the tiles on the bathroom floor, that's her prerogative. The reason female vocals are the important part is, as you said, due to the pitch and vocal abilities (in this case, the sound we're looking for is similar to between that of the vocals for Sacrilege and the vocals for After the Bombs). I don't think it's at all sexist to say "We need female vocals for this" because that's the sound we're looking for which so happens to require a woman's voice. At the same time a woman couldn't do most hardcore vocals you hear today, because most women lack the ability to sound like a pitbull.

on account of your density, regardless if youre being sexist or not, i wont be listening to your band on sheer principle alone.

Density? I'm not really seeing it. Do explain, kind sir.

Also, bwalker, you're generally right, but maybe he's going for something more along the lines of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Is777znkRxo

Rather than this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2eynNh5xHM

And yeah, xrambeaux, hardcore bitching is fun. Join in!

No

Feel free to post something along the lines of what you DO want.
And that's fine, not explaining your opinion does wonders for communication.

After reading this thread I have come up with a four word conclusion:

Who gives a shit?

Kinda wish I didn't have social anxiety disorder (with bouts of agoraphobia) right now....
