Transcribing Again

I have been driven close to tears, hearing how a musician's boyfriend made her leave her successful band through his jealousy, and then undermined her playing so much that she gave up altogether.
The worst thing anyone has told me so far is a partner's attempt to break her fingers so she couldn't play guitar any more.
Yet the party line is that girls just aren't interested in playing in rock bands, it's a Boy Thing.
A Bullying and Intimidation Thing, actually.

I'm not surprised by this - which is rather sad!
