Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino on Explosion of Sexual Assault Allegations in Hollywood

Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast, writing for Billboard:

Thanks to my band, Best Coast, I am a girl with a guitar, but I am also a girl with a voice.

A powerful one that I am not afraid to use.

I am sick and tired of sitting around and seeing my peers shake their heads and say “me too.” And while I know it’s so important to share our stories of assault and harassment so that the rest of the world feels less alone I am utterly heartbroken that we have to keep discussing this. How does this keep happening? When do we finally say “enough is enough” and hold these men accountable for their evil actions? When will a firing or a stint in rehab not be the solution to this problem? When will this problem no longer be a problem?
