This may be offensive, but I don't have enough evidence supporting any contrary theories. I have no doubt of the possibility of a good girl drummer, I just haven't seen one that met my personal expectations.
Seriously? And just what are your personal expectations of us "girl drummers?" And why should we have to live up to them? Do the guys? Ugh!
