GRIMEZ

I don’t want to have to compromise my morals in order to make a living. 
i dont want my words to be taken out of context   
i dont want to be infantilized because i refuse to be sexualized 
i dont want to be molested at shows or on the street by people who perceive me as an object that exists for their personal satisfaction

—from Grimes tumblr-manifesto. These things must come up again and again for her (and others), especially as a performer—the crowd at her show in Seoul was a seething mass of expats whod drunk too much and left their manners at home.
