No, but It’s Time to Cancel the Times

New York Times: It’s Time To Cancel Classic Rock (freebeacon.com)

"I want to live in a world where I can be moved by art and music and literature without having to come up with elaborate apologies for that work or for its creators," Jennifer Finney Boylan, a transgender activist and author, wrote on Wednesday. Boylan urged listeners to scrap iconic artists and songs, including Don McLean's "American Pie" and the Rolling Stones' "Brown Sugar," if the artists have personal flaws or their lyrics are not sufficiently "inclusive" or "just."

Then don’t apologize. Listen to what you want to listen to and be happy. If you don’t like something, then DON’T LISTEN TO IT. If you do, then do, and tell everyone who gripes about it to go listen to their own damn music and to leave you the Hell alone.
