Swedish Festival Will Ban All Men ‘Until They Can Behave Themselves’

Music Festivals Confront the Rape Issue

What’s the solution to the rape epidemic at Swedish music festivals?

Last week, the Bravalla Festival in Sweden was forced to shut down.  The reason?  An uncontrollable epidemic of rapes and sexual assaults.  The total number of rapes at Bravalla lurched past 6 in just two years, with endless sexual assaults reported.

The rest was a downward spiral.  Artists pulled out. People were trying to get refunds.  Some blamed foreigners.  Others blamed Sweden.  Bravalla became tainted.  And an otherwise well-attended festival was canceled.

But it turns out that this is a giant problem in Sweden.  Especially when it comes to music festivals. Accordingly, Bravalla blamed aggressive males for the issue, pointing to a group of bad apples in an otherwise healthy orchard.

All of which lends itself to a simple solution: an all-female festival.

Enter Swedish comedian, radio personality, and feminist Emma Knyckare , who is hoping to spearhead the idea.  “It was an idea that I had for all of those men who rape at festivals,” Knyckare told Swedish broadcaster SVT.  “This was a solution.”

But wait: isn’t that punishing all the stand-up bros who aren’t groping, assaulting, and raping?  “I think it’s more important to have a place where half the population can go and feel safe,” Knyckare snapped back.

All of which raises some prickly equality issues.  But men will be allowed to attend “when they stop raping,” according to Knyckare.  So there’s your equality solution.

Planning for the all-female festival is already in the works.  At present, it’s looking like a 2018 rock-themed event.  “There are a lot of people who want to help,” Kynckare continued.  “Everyone from project managers, festival organizers, maintenance people, nurses, and musicians.”

This wouldn’t be the first all-female festival.  Just recently, Glastonbury developed ‘The Sisterhood,’ though a ban on transgenders may have killed the man-free zone.  And perhaps the biggest female-focused festival of all time is Lilith Fair.  But of course, men were never banned from that festival.

So would this fly?

One problem is that many women actually enjoy bringing men or meeting men at music festivals.  Of course, they don’t like getting assaulted by men at festivals.  But ditching your boyfriend — or any interaction with the opposite sex — might be an extreme solution.

All of which raises the next question: will enough women go for this concept to make it financially viable?  Maybe that’s the most important aspect of all.

Oh and by the way: this isn’t only a problem in Sweden.  Of course, assaults happen at music festivals and other big-crowd events worldwide.  Whether the future of music festivals can survive this issue remains unclear, with otherwise-successful events like Bravalla an early casualty.

    obviously the problem is islamic rape culture and now islamic gender apartheid is being enforced too.. it is sad what has happend to sweden. also, its crazy p.c. nonsens to exclude swedish men from the festival. they are not the problem and should not experience negative consequences because of the crimes of people that are not them.

    Sweden is very repressive on cannabis and very welcoming to alcohol. That’s certainly part of the problem.

    Jews and Moslems have long been friendly with one another.
    It was Jews who helped Moslems invade and conquer Spain.
    Now Jews are helping Moslems invade EVERY white country.
    They don’t even hide this. They’re all out on the streets talking about it.

      As long as we don’t hurt any one and do what is right we have every right to identify this and save our homeland. Just remember, we cannot give in to the same evils as the Nazi did. their mistakes hang over our head and even today are the reason for why we are so paralyzed in this. As long as we stay within the boundaries of truth and goodness. We shall drive them out and retake our great city.. CONSTANTINOPOLIS! from there we will demand peace and even that they help themselves. there shall be strong muslims and strong jews, and we will fight for what is right for them… but believe you me first we will do right by ourselves. whether these beasts see the truth or not will not get in the way of our achieving this righteous balance.

    they force the idea that there is no gender on their toddlers, yet they can identify gender to exclude the men from this festival

    Also, they don’t acknowledge who commits sexual assaults any more because its all the foreign men from the Mideast.. The numbers were astounding before they suppressed them. But here they can acknowledge who commits these when its just men in general. God forbid they narrowed it down to Islamic men, id be surprised if they didn’t allow muslim men and only ban native Swedish males.

    Watch the Vice episode on gender in Sweden folks….

    there is nothing wrong with us, we must stand against the forces who are commiting these heinous crimes against us and humanity in general.
    We are not bigots, we are not racists, we are not Nazis. We are European mean AND women and we are good people. AND WE WILL UNITE! for our future!

    Remember who you are. fight for what is right
