    PTH makes some good points, though. But Plato's Tripartite dwells into the 3rd wave feminist bullshit myth that women are raped way more than men are. Kinda cringeworthy, but I still love them.

    I hate this band, for perverting Metal and turning it into a social justice warrior bleeding heart pinko lib whine fest. How about, you go back to tumbler? Really pathetic, grow up Protest the Hero.. more like Oversensitive, The Hero.
