When People Write for Free, Who Pays?
FYI, this is why Amanda Palmer is a giant SHITMONSTER.
All while she and her fans rally around her right to perpetuate ableism and appropriate native cultures in order to sell records, and SHAME ON ANY OF US OUT THERE FOR JUDGING HER FOR IT IN ANY WAY.
She also recommended instead of doing product placement for money, people should do things like “ironically send money to the KKK”.
this is what I think about every time people reblog her TedTalk uncritically.
Ugh Amanda Palmer
Sure if an artist can swing performing without getting paid, and want to do so, go for it. But they are not ~superior~ to people who can’t afford to forgo payment for their work, and the CLASSISM involved in attitudes like this is breathtaking to me
