Listen: Naomi Bindman performs “rebuttal”
Author’s Note: I wrote”rebuttal” in response to the felt-assault of hostile, racist/misogynistic rap performed in a space billed as safe and inclusive. I intend it as an explicit calling-out of frat-boy hip-hop culture, and an expression of the need for women to speak up and out ongoingly.
