Bitch, it’s because most women and blacks DON’T WANT TO TAKE PART!
They have their own music/scene. Isn’t that OK with you?
And those who do participate, and who you mentioned — Poly Styrene, Bad Brains — are not “in the gaps.” Nobody thinks of them that way except you.
The comments are good-ish, of course:
Otherwise you’re right: The likes of Tina Weymouth, Siouxsie Sioux and Debbie Harry were nothing more than the puppets of evil, male Svengalis. I’d love to be around when you explain that to them.
