Graff Girls

If women and men are so equal then why is there a thread

specifically devoted to female writers?

 

I totally understand how hard it is to gain real

recognition in a world that is completely dominated by

males, but doesn't seeing your flicks being posted on here

and having people talk about you specifically because you're a

"graff girl" make you feel like your accomplishments are being

recognized for the wrong reasons? Why did you start writing?..

Is it because your boyfriend did? or because when you were

15 years old you had a crush on some hot guy that did? Or

because when you were young you really didn't fit in with the

"cool crowd" and you needed something and someplace to occupy

your time while you were skipping classes and getting wasted?

Or maybe because the first piece or illegal shot you saw got you

so pumped on what graffiti was that you fell into it head first

never having any clue on what kind of a world you'd be thrown

into...

Whatever the reason is, you are a writer... and if you are

reading this I am assuming that the majority of you on this

thread are women. Maybe it's time to startthinking about your

current motivations for while you are still writing. So if you want

to get real respect and have people recognize your shit cause it's

dope, go paint something.. go post it on a thread that's relevant

or go make your own.

**Don't post mediocre shit on here just

cause you're a chick and want respect.**

Like all writers know.. that's something that you'll have to

earn from the work you put in by the people you surround yourself

with, and if they aren't recognizing your skills just because

you're a woman, dump their asses cause they're not worth it.

I know that every time my name or the name of another woman writer

with whom I'm familiar with comes up on this thread it's

frustrating... who the fuck cares who a girl did or didn't date,

or what she looks like, how hot she is...

and I hope all those women that write and are really down

(you all know who you are) stay away from this thread and avoid

whoring yourself to get "cheap fame". Most of you have.

And one last thing... graffiti is based on complete anonymity,

it fucking sucks to have the facts stated on here that one person

or another is female... don't you even think that for a minute

graffiti task forces and investigators check out this message board?..

so if you didn't ask for the girls permission... don't fucking post

shit on here anywhere saying that she's a girl.. that's fucking

inconsiderate and stupid.

 

 

First of all, all your points are nothing new to any of us. I agree that if somebody wants their gender to remain undisclosed, then thay have every right to get upset ever someone else blowing their spot. That's fucked up. In fact, I used to agree with you almost 100%. I used to think that girls who flaunted the fact that they were female writers to get attention were the biggest sell-outs imaginable. I used to throw a fit if I found my flick on the "girl-page" of a magazine (ask prismacolor about that one!) I used to get upset because girls (apart from a small handful) would suddenly appear in the scene, have all kinds of fools jocking the shit out of them even thought they wern't all that great, and then fall off a few months later. No joke, that shit pissed me off. But it's been years since I've shared those types of opinions, because although it still saddens me so see girls come and go for all the wrong reasons, some of the most positive experiences I've had through graffiti in the last 5 years have been centered around meeting and relating with another writer based on simply being female. There is nothing more motivational or inspirational to me than finding out that there actually ARE other girls who share my intrests and have the same heart that I thought I was all alone struggling with. I think the girls that I know personaly on this board and the girls who have had their work posted in this thread are not the girls that you are targeting in your statement. Most of these girls put in plenty of time and effort and have tremendous ability and dedication, more than most GUYS that I know, and you don't need to take a stab at that. I honestly feel like I get respect based on what I do, NOT my gender. Although graffiti is based on anonymity, art is certainly self expression and in every way is about the person behind it. Girls on this board are doing nothing more than being true to who they are, and giving each other their much needed support. If you don't like that, that's fine, but don't assume that we haven't been over the same issues again and again countless times. I don't expect you to understand, but maybe I can shed just a hint of light on the subject for you...

Stay up, girl...

aight i didnt post those flicks a kid i know who runs a website did just for the record.......

 

but im sayin, i get stepped on, hated on, shit talked about, and fucked over way more than any nigga that i know in the graff game. i gotta deal with ALOT of shit that most of these niggas never even thought about and so do most of the other girl writers i know/know of in nyc. so while i dont dish out MORE respect just cause they femals, girls who actually paint, get up and stay gettin up get props from me no doubt.
