They are everywhere, those apologists of patriarchy and the status quo. And whenever someone complains about not being treated fairly in this world, those clever clogs are very like to say something like

For FLINTA*, BIPOC, or people with lower income, this kind of advice can be extremely dissatisfying, as it clearly shows that the speakers are not at all interested in improving the situation. Berlin’s SAFI are here to share their thoughts on the issue described, and they have wrapped them in a powerful song and a fascinating music video. The song Ich will ein Leben (German: I want a Life) will be featured on their upcoming album Groteske, to be released via Rookie Records in autumn 2024.
