Australian National University bar’s final show: Regurgitator drops out after promoter’s response to all-male line-up backlash

Australian National University bar’s final show: Regurgitator drops out after promoter’s response to all-male line-up backlash, by the ABC.

Rock band Regurgitator has pulled out of its headline slot at the Australian National University (ANU) bar’s final show, after the organiser responded to backlash over the all-male line-up by asking why he should “think about this shit”. …

When the event was announced on social media, some Facebook users commented on the lack of female acts.

But [organizer] Mr Peadon’s response only drew more controversy. When questioned why there were “no women or non-binary performers” in the line-up, Mr Peadon, posting as his event services company Greenroom Canberra, replied: “Why do I have too (sic) even think about this shit? What the f*** is a non-binary?”. He went on to say that he would not be changing the line-up and that the bands were not chosen “for what’s between their members’ legs”.

So Mr Peadon is apparently blind to gender, and non-discriminatory, but the people of prejudice want him to choose people on the basis of their gender. Marvelous. PC idiots gone wild.
