It’s not always sexist to hate pop music.
But more often than not, criticism of pop music is rooted in misogyny, and we’re sick of it.
In our Season 2 premiere, Hannah, Becky, and Mimi unpack 4 common criticisms of pop music that are rooted in sexism, which are:
- lack of sophistication or meaning
- undervaluing of the fanbase
- and perceived lack of talent of the artists
Next time you hear a (probably cishet dude) person telling you why they hate pop music, ask yourself if their hatred is just thinly-veiled misogyny. And then: sic Taylor Swift’s live performance of "Cornelia Street" on them and run far away.
