While Grimes may not be the first to call to mind for display of public aggravation, the Canadian electro-pop artist has chosen her Tumblr as a platform for outlet. She has written in lengthy words against sexism and the defective visions of fashion and beauty. Titled “I don’t want to have to compromise my morals in order to make a living,” Grimes begins by expressing certain misdemeanors she disproves, with a swathe of bullet points starting with “I don’t” and “I’m tired.”

 ”I don’t want to be infantilized because I refuse to be sexualised. I don’t want to be molested at shows or on the street by people who perceive me as an object that exists for their personal satisfaction. I don’t want to live in a world where I’m gonna have to start employing body guards because this kind of behavior is so commonplace and accepted and I’m pissed that when I express concern over my own safety.”

She then dabbles on to contemporary definitions of “cool” and the disagreement of certain stereotypes, view the full post here.

Ranting aside, Grimes is currently working on the follow-up to her 2012 album Visions, and is said to be currently “two-fifths done.” Stay tuned for more on the forthcoming release and keep her pointers in mind if your paths cross.
