This Quietus article by Joe Kennedy is a great take on dudes in the indie scene.

Not shocked. There are a LOT of gross dudes in indie music who get a pass because they're tortured geniuses (read: indie fan boy heroes). Rivers Cuomo is another one.
I found the indie music scene really toxic for women in the late 90s and early 00s. A lot of the male fans were aggressive, gatekeepy, manipulative, and misogynist. They didn't follow female musicians unless they were hot. I dipped into /r/indieheads recently, and the vibe is exactly the same as it was 10-20 years ago.

/r/toronto is infested with neckbeards this week thanks to that woman who threw patio chairs off of a balcony. They're just chomping at the bit to call women slurs. That's normal on Reddit in general, but had been mostly absent in that sub until now.
I know I've been online too much lately, because I feel really overwhelmed by bullshit. Everything is a power play and a lie and a meme.
You know those chatbots that started to communicate with each other in their own secret language? It seems interesting until you realize they're just repeating stupid, meaningless shit at each other. That's where we're going.
Swing of the wow!
