  1. I think we got a lot of fake hype here in Chitown. To use a drum corps term to keep it current.
  2. See, that’s funny. I am chuckling. I hope I’m not scolded.
  3. I’m not jumping into that pool. I’m just wishing a nice person well.
  4. I wish him well. I don’t know him but he seems like a really nice guy.
  5. I guess you didn’t take my advice. This place has given me my misogynistic experience in the drum corps. Not everyone, mind you.
  6. I’m not about victimhood. I’m a Camille Paglia feminist. You can always ignore me. And I’ll do likewise.
  7. There were no women in Norwood Park’s hornline in the fall of 1971. I walked in and said I wanted to play French Horn bugle. And I was in the line that day. Sometimes, you have to tell them what YOU want.
  8. I’d love to hear any stories of women applying for drum corps gigs and not getting them because they were given to men. I tried teaching band over forty years ago and quickly found out it wasn’t for me. And they wanted me to do it. I couldn’t stifle my laughter when I told a kid to hold up his horn and he said that he was exhausted from a long day at school. I was done.
  9. Just hire the best people. This never helps women. Usually, the qualified women don’t get the gig or the board position because they’re forced to appoint or hire the wrong one. Women are doing pretty well. I don’t feel oppressed at all.
  10. I’m an actual female and I agree 100%.
