People have a knack of really over simplifying feminism like “feminism: the radical notion that women are people” or “feminism is literally just believing in equality” like… no its not its so much more complex than that ask any dingus if they think women and men should be equal they’ll probably say yeah but their actions and thoughts probably majorly contradict that so quit acting like anyones a feminist if they vaguely believe women are ok humans



The official word from John about this song from 2009:

Yeah all right you guys here is the deal. Next album is nearly done but I wrote this one song today that won’t really fit on it - why that’s so will be clear when the next album comes out. (Sometime in the fall, we think.) Thought it was a pretty decent song, a really minor half-done demo but I really like the overall feeling, so I figured I’d just let you have it. It’s about the Bride of Frankenstein. If you haven’t seen it, don’t be boring and look it up on Wikipedia or whatever, just get it & see it, it’s one of the all-timers anyway and you will love it.

New people are advised that acceptance of free stuff from me means you swear, to God & on your family and/or your best friend’s health & safety, not to later on be the sort of insufferable blowhard who runs around insisting that the demos that didn’t make the album were better than the songs that did. Because: no, they weren’t. Saying stuff like that seems to be a good way to score scene points, but if you accept this song, you sacrifice your claim to those particular type of scene points. These conditions apply whether you grab the file from this board or wherever else so don’t even try to duck me, because you cannot duck me, the ring only has four corners and I will find you in one of them.
