    Sometimes it feels like feminism and the urge to let loose on the dance floor and/or mosh pit are totally at odds with each other. Humans are complicated creatures and sometimes the beats that we blast while getting ready to go out at night or on a jog don't exactly jibe with our politics. (Have you read Roxane Gay's Bad Feminist yet? No? Okay, we'll wait.)

    In a society swarming with women who are afraid to identify as feminists, it feels pretty damn good to find out that we have male allies in the world of music. Whether these guys are throwing their support behind survivors of sexual assault or speaking out against gender norms, they're musicians who rock on every level. Even if they don't use the "F" word themselves.
