    it's why you know perfectly well what is being implied by 'feminine pressure' or what is implied by any attempt to code music as masculine or feminine. becasue there are norms of usage.

    a man can swoon after all. can sigh and flutter and enter into that domain of experience. and vice versa. it's about a geography of experience.

    if you take a generic hardcore tune there are alternating periods of will and surrender in a beautifully crude way. a stomping period and a hands in the air period where the beat falls out.

    Carolyn Cooper's stuff on dancehall is better than all of this.

    Yes a Jamaican woman writing about dancehall is going to a load of rubbish compared to a bunch of middle aged white blokes embarrassing themselves about "female pressure".
