At work I hear all of those songs all the time, every song from them is about how bad guys are and how they're abusive, female dutch singers are the worst in that, it's either like they have very bad taste in men that they always get guys like that, or it's completely bs and they just make it up to appeal to their 12 yr old fanbase, I'm going with option 2

These are legit the ladies capitalising on weird allegations. So definitely they meet the lower subsets of the crowd.

The lyrics read like misandry disguised as activism. The usual feminist drek.

Good old boy networks use that shit as an excuse and it's very much misogyny and misandry. Boys are individuals, there is no thing that "boys will be." Stupid myths are stupid.

Boys will be what we're raised to be. If boys are raised to be gentlemen, they'll be gentlemen. If boys are raised as goons, they'll be goons. Same deal with women as well.

[–]RatDontPanic 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

So very true!

Kids are products of their upbringing and environment. Boys will be boys because, simply, we're boys. Rape and sexual violence is not being a boy.

The song chalks up sexual violence to "boys being boys" which is assuming that it's in our nature to sexually assault someone, which is a sexist assumption.

I refuse to listen to any of her music on the ground that she's a feminist.

I refuse to listen to her music on the grounds that her music is absolute garbage (and she's a feminist).

[–]hottama 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

On the contrary. I think she makes good pop music. It's just the feminist thing.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Eh. I hate pop music but that's entirely subjective. The feminist bs I can agree on though.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Apart from how bad the music is, the lyrics are grossly sexist. She has this one portion where she sings "If you're offended by this song, you're clearly doing something wrong." I'm not offended by the song, I think it's a dumbass message.

I don’t

I have this song in my music collection and like it, but the words are disgustingly offensive. I don't like to listen to it just because of that.

Never heard it, never will

“It's second nature to walk home before the sun goes down And put your keys between your knuckles when there's boys around” imagine if boys was replaced with blacks. How is this song ok?

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
