Home Music Lane

It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

Yep

I guess I've said enough times that I find it extremely sexist, derogatory, demeaning, disrespectful, and sometimes (as in the case of "pouty lips") just downright vicious.

I suppose the culture of music marketing contributes to this ongoing misogyny, with soloist websites and the materials accompanying recordings that emphasize sexuality. But that's not a justification for perpetuating it in a public forum.

However, these issues have been discussed over and over without a whisper of understanding, much less a hint of change. So I suppose we just live with it. That doesn't mean we have to support it or participate in it ourselves. I now try to avoid contributing to discussions that mention "babes" or other derogatory terms.
