Amanda Palmer's Response to Sinead O'Connor's Response to Miley Cyrus


I know a lot of people have strong feelings about Amanda Palmer, but I love this response like, a lot. While I think O'Connor's response was coming from a good place, it bothered me that she was essentially , as Palmer puts it "...ordering [young female artists] to get back in the house and put some goddamn clothes on."

I love that Palmer's response gives more agency to Cyrus, because that means we can hold Miley Cyrus responsible for her own decisions (and mistakes), instead of labeling her some poor manipulated soul, and thereby excusing her from culpability.
