Re: [microsound] Call for Work: Queer Experimental Sound

1. why did you post/SPAM here and to the "announce" list? clearly you know
better, but want to abuse the list?
2. what the hell does your sexual orientation have to do with it?
3. will there be a "straight experiments with audio"? a bi?

really why the discrimination? is your sexual orientation your identity?
that is sad.
