What is xsisterhoodx?

xsisterhoodx is a community and zine devoted to the ladies of straight edge and/or hardcore. We feature reviews, articles, interviews, commentary, giveaways and more. Our community is fueled by personal profiles, a messaging system, message boards. personal stories, reviews, interviews, editorial
xsisterhoodx strives to be a positive force in a scene divided. Our goal is to create balance and eliminate the biases which exist in today’s global scene. As a community, we encourage and support positive discussion and involvement without the negativity and posturing often found on the web. We stand against violence and elitism and do not tolerate bigotry, racism, trolling, misogyny, sexism, or discrimination in any form.

xsisterhoodx mission

xsisterhoodx is about forging connections. It’s about creating a positive dialog and making people aware that their views and way of life are shared by many, and that they are not alone. Too few hardcore/straight edge sites/communities empower females let alone accept them as equals.

We have voices. Whether you have been involved with the scene for two decades or two months. You are welcome here.

Sexism sucks! It didn’t end in the 80’s And hardcore still needs another song for the ladies – Girlfriends are great, please don’t get me wrong But it’s time to put down that coat and come sing along Because I can’t hear your voice from the back of the crowd Move to the front, and shout it out loud Keep your eyes on the prize, you know what I mean If we can’t change the world, then let’s change the scene– good clean fun
