NOT MINE BUT I AM SHARING THIS BECAUSE IT'S TRUE

ashton generalizing the fanbase as “14 year old chicks” and assuming we don’t care about drumming or know enough about it to “judge him” is … to say the least… not cool at all, & i’m sorry if u deem me being upset about it as stupid but that’s the way the cookie fuckin crumbles
I would like everyone to consider this my open letter to Ashton Irwin and rockstars everywhere. I type this knowing that there is a substantial percentage of 5sos fans who will openly attack me for even once questioning Ashton on his actions, but I’m not writing this to them. I’m writing this to the people who will be able to put their pro-Ashton mindset aside and genuinely think about what is going on here today.

Let’s start by giving Ashton the benefit of the doubt. Quotes like this are frequently taken out of context by interviewers to make articles shorter or to make the story more interesting. Given the verbage of things I doubt that here, but it is minutely possible.

That said, the more likely idea is that he did say this in this way and this was used as a quote about how drummers are under-appreciated, which would imply the context is accurate and this is what he meant to say. Which is why I’m typing this.

First off. It is INCREDIBLY RUDE to generalize your fans as little, young, unappreciative ‘chicks’ who don’t know what they’re listening to or talking about.

Secondly, the phrase ‘14 year old chicks’ is incredibly bothersome. I’m not going to argue the sexism with anyone about the word ‘chicks’ because I don’t know how the term is used in Australia, but I’d like to address the mentioned age.

As bands go, 5sos have a much older fanbase than any of the other currently popular bands on the market at the moment. I personally know 10 times as many 17 and older fans as I do 16 and under. From what I can tell, the average fans age is somewhere around 18 to 19.

Not only that, in this phrase 14 is being used in an incredibly derogatory way, like there’s something wrong with being 14! You cannot assume that people younger than you are automatically lesser than you in some way. And you certainly cannot assume that they acted the way you did at that age. Are some 14 year olds immature? ABSOLUTELY! But so are quite a lot of 20 year olds! There are 14 year olds out there smarter and more mature than me or Ashton will ever be! We have all been 14 at one point! We were not born at the age we are at now.

Lastly, let’s talk about his comments on drumming. On the one hand it is rude of him to assume that there are no musicians in this fandom, and that he is in some way superior to the drummers that are fans of him to the point that he can’t be judged by them. But I’m not so mad at that as I am his assumption that we know nothing about it and do not appreciate him.

The majority of 5sos fans do not understand drumming enough to tell how good Ashton is. However, it is easy for almost all of us to see the level of work and commitment he puts in, and even if they don’t understand they appreciate the dedication and know that he is doing his best, and his best sounds incredible to them.

The implication that there is something wrong with not understanding or knowing everything about drumming is also a little worrisome. I grew up playing multiple instruments, and I’ve had to compose things for school on occasion, so I understand that drums are a necessity to any group (even though I do not know the drums themselves as an instrument). Not everyone has an inherent knowledge of the composition of music or song writing, and it’s just as ridiculous to be upset that they do not have that knowledge as it is to assume that they are all ignorant simply because they lack fame.

I am thinking about changing the title of my movella 1-10. Currently I'm leaning towards something like, The Numbers or He Was a 6. If anyone can come up with something better, or if you like the title as is, please tell me.

I love writing but, I feel like I have to update more often than i like. I hate leaving chapters on cliff hangers but, this summer for me has been really difficult for me. I've been an emotional wreck, and having anxiety attacks more. I promise that I try and update more often but, now it seems like it won't happen because I am booked this month. There's only 5 more weeks to update and get most of my stories completed within that short amount of time.
