I hope everyone will read the powerful Jeniffer Wright piece in HarpersBazaar about toxic masculinity HERE.
Various musicians from across genres have spoken out for more sane gun legislation and the NRA out of politician’s pockets in the wake of the ghastly Parkland massacre. Here are a few sample tweets below.

Legalize every drug. Reinvest the majority of funds allotted to the drug war into treatment and education. Use any funds left over to set up a nationwide gun buy-back program, simultaneously outlawing the sale of firearms to civilians. Ban the fucking things outright after a year

90% of high school or elementary school shootings were the result of White, often upper-middle class men. These are the consequences that occur when groups like the @NRA control influential conservative leaders #FloridaShooting #AnotherOne #TimeForChange

It’s decidedly NOT Responsible Gun Ownership to threaten violence or fantasize gruesome scenarios whilst posting your collection of weaponry on Social Media. Creating a provocative atmosphere that makes folks feel unsafe is the DEFINITION of irresponsible https://t.co/2wNURgiSQy

"maybe we should give guns to teachers"
"we should also give guns to the students too"
"yeah and have armed cops in every school"
"agreed give those custodians some fucken rifles"
"maybe we should just ban guns?"
"YOU SOUND LIKE A FUCKING CRAZY PERSON"

"Don't tell me there's no such thing as gun violence." This is devastating. https://t.co/rmChnlLf3x
