I saw an Australian MGTOW make the claim that the radio and music turned feminist recently. It was the word “recently” that caught my attention. I think music has been feminist my whole life.
When I was in my teens feminist music dominated the music scene. There was Hole, Sleater Kinney, Lunachicks and many more. It was a whole scene called Grrrl Riot. Beyond that Tori Amos, PJ Harvey, Breeders, Juliana Hatfield, Sheryl Crow, Bjork and Alanis Morissette were all huge musicians who, I believe, were all feminist
But when my Dad was young there was Carly Simon, Janis Ian, Joni Mitchell and Carol King.
It’s all a question of perspective. The Red Pill community sometimes talks about feminism as though “things are really bad now” or “when the current insanity is over”. Check out this blog from Roosh stating that feminism had peaked in 2010. I wonder what he thinks about that now in light of #metoo? Lena Dunham’s Girls wouldn’t even start for another 2 years when he wrote that piece.
I’ve heard Karen Straughan say that feminism will never go away and I think we’d be best advised to listen to her on this. I see no benefit is acting like this is all going to blow over soon. We might as well get on with our lives as though this is how it is now and learn to live with it.
