I like it [Riot Grrrl Rap] because I like what’s associated with it, but I don’t know if the original Riot Grrrl theorists would necessarily agree. I use derogatory language against women in my raps but I do it from the standpoint of a gay man, so when I use the word “bitch” I’m saying it in a gay way. But that doesn’t change the fact that I’m still saying it, and it doesn’t change the fact that as a born male, who’s not actually transgendered, that dresses as a drag queen I still have an advantageous position.
It becomes stressful because as an artist I can’t weed out the life experiences that have made me who I am, and that will resonate in the songs, but at the same time I’m aware of it and I don’t know quite how to defend myself yet.
As an example when Azealia Banks called Perez Hilton a messy faggot… I mean anyone who’s gay knows how cunty Azealia Banks is, she surrounds herself with gay men, anyone would have had prior knowledge, like oh that’s how she talks. When that situation happened I, maybe immaturely, took the position of, “I don’t like the fact that the white gay mafia is beating up on this person.” Because from the time I was thirteen years old I’ve seen gay politics in this country and gay media and the messages that are promoted, and I’ve been unsatisfied with them.
Now we have recognizable gay icons on daytime TV and I think those are good things for gay culture but at the same time, no gay celebrity who really has pull in this country ever promotes or calls attention to serious LGBT rights. I want to get to a place in my career where I can take those positions, but I can’t yet because I’m still too uninformed and I’m still just trying to figure out my own stuff. — MYKKI BLANCO ON THE NEOLOGISM ‘RIOT GRRRL RAP’, AZEALIA BANKS, AND HETERONORMATIVITY, SSENSE (via richwhitehusband)
