wow i'm really tired of ignorant people being total assholes about this band. do people insult you for the metal music you listen to all of the time? i certainly hope not. because insulting us about the music we find refuge in isnt any different.
to all of the people who think chris carrabba is a girl for his lyrics and he has "ovaries" or whatever you say, do you have ANY idea how small-minded you sound? its just like saying: women cant play sports or skateboard simply because playing sports is a guy thing to do. if a guy who plays guitar and talks about his feeling is such an OPPRESSIVE thing to do, well minaswell get rid of equality for minorities then. deny us of our rights and simply commence the debacle of the free world.
chris carrabba is exercising his right to free speech by composing his songs and venting his emotions. there is no law that says YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL OR DIE. if you dont like the band, dont trash them, just simply dont listen to their stuff.
At the Civic Tour:
"All of you guys screaming faggot and waving your fucking middle finger out in the crowd, come up on stage. I'm giving you the mic. It's an open forum.
-silence for a couple of minutes-
Come on up! I'm talking about what i feel, so why dont you talk about what you feel? Sure i like Thrice and The Get Ups Kids too. they're great bands. But that doesnt mean that i dont have something valid to say.
Well if i'm such a pussy for singing about what i feel... well then this pussy is going to sing some more songs."
