The Magick of Male Retraction

" It is a shame and also a disservice to treat one of the rare and invaluable women in Extreme Music (of any genre) like this.  I urge readers of this article to forward it on to Wikipedia and/or supplement the site with information either found here or on other sites to rectify this situation.  Share and Repost! Surely, if this can happen to me, it can happen to you or one of your friends.  Do not let the system of #fakenews and sexist music journalists decide what you are worth."

-Rachel Kozak, Nymphomatriarch: A Study of Censorship and Sexism in Electronic Music

An interesting and depressing tale of a woman making dynamic and interesting music for 20 years in experimental electronic music, being undermined every step of the way, culminating in having her Wikipedia page torn down and replaced by an off-hand reference to once being Aaron Funk's girlfriend on a project she had an equal hand in writing/producing.
