P.S.

I think it would be really cool if other bloggers who appreciate alternative/strong female artists and bands, etc, if they were to celebrate some of their favourites too πŸ™‚

Because women aren’t often found in the mainstream music industry unless they’re half naked, or sexualised in some ways. (Although there are always some positive twists to this tale. See t’other links) And they’re hardly given enough coverage in alternative music press, unless in a stereotypical way (see the first Fword link).

And so, it is always good to remember that there are some AMAZING female artists out there, and to shout out about them! πŸ™‚

There are some great articles on the F word about females (and sexism) in the music industry:

And some more positive articles about the mainstream music industry:

(and my own personal post about the Spice Girls, not to toot my own horn, but it is relevent to this topic y’see)

Now, really, back to work for Amy πŸ™‚

Does David Bowie count as a woman? πŸ˜›

You bring up some interesting questions by the way.

Why is todays society so focused on sexuality in the media?

Why do so many young women seek to replicate this ideal of sexuality?

But more importantly: Is this a problem?

Keep blogging,
Martin.

Heheh I <3 David Bowie!!!

“But more importantly: Is this a problem?”
That has inspired me to write a post about that very question, but not now. Because I am attempting to work on my English Language coursework, but as you can probably tell, I have very limited attention span when it comes to school work! 😦 Ha!

By the way, do you know of Pizzicato Five? You should hear “Baby Love Child” – that’s the sweetest thing!

It’s a female vocalist. Here is the video. You may recognize the song from Matt Groenings Futurama:
