This year, Glastonbury co-organizer Emily Eavis raised the prospect of having two female headliners, sparking media speculation of potential appearances by Dua Lipa and Madonna.

Empowering! Two women, Dua Lipa who dresses like a prostitute and Madonna who dresses like an old prostitute.

There you go! Shonen Knife is good time glam punk rock'n'roll. Their shows are a great time for all. No pushing the sexual angle, no empty-headed 'dingbat' persona.

Of course Heart, Pat Benatar, Joan Jett and some others are worth checking out. Get rid of those lip-synching gyrating sex robots!

Heart. Yes!. Benatar. Yes! Joan Jett? Mmmmmm....maybe.

Patti Smith, Debbie Harry, Chrissie Hynde, PJ Harvey, St. Vincent, Yes!

I bet a lot of fans of traditional Glastonbury music, i.e., three chord indie, are pretty misogynistic.

Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth claims she was constantly asked "what's it like being the girl in the band?" by people from the NME and the like.

The 74-page report, "Misogyny in Music", looked at the entire music sector, from radio stations and recording studios, to festivals and orchestras.

This preposterous 74 pages of virtue signalling, self righteous gibberish defines the culture war, the toxicity of identity politics, farcical absurdity of pro noun LGBTQIA2S+ that cannot or will not accept nature creation or definition of a biological man or women.

Brought predatory men into women and young girls safe spaces.

This report is testament to the same activism mirroring the abrasive corrosive poisonous hate ridden world of critical race theory infesting schools colleges universities even work spaces.

Even music...

systematic belittling of women, as well as a focus on their physical appearance.

and right on time at platform 1 ...

 Dua Lipa who dresses like a prostitute and Madonna who dresses like an old prostitute.

Well, if you talk about artists, it is a pay for individual performance. No compatison possible.

Nothing mysoginistic.

Men perform better by attracting more audience.

How come 40 years ago we had Boy George, Pet Shop Boys and Bronski Beat often topping the charts. What a load of codswallop these plonkers spout. Mind you, that’s the way the world has gone, totally potty.

Exactly! Nobody cared then, and nobody cares now. Its become a “progressive” industry to create division where none existed.

Boy George has spoken about being the victim of homophobic trash throughout his life. Still happening now.

God no! No Shonen Knife! They're embarrassing! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKAQPvFG23siI saw this.

I saw this. OK so they made a bad mistake covering a horrible song. But that's just one song. The five times I've seen Shonen Knife, these ladies never covered that yucky song. I have seen them cover some Ramones songs, Paul McCartney's 'Jet' and Nick Lowe's 'Cruel to Be Kind'. They played them nicely and you can't go wrong with songs that are that good.

Heart. Yes!. Benatar. Yes! Joan Jett? Mmmmmm....maybe.

Patti Smith, Debbie Harry, Chrissie Hynde, PJ Harvey, St. Vincent, Yes!

Definitely yes to them too. I like St. Vincent but she needs to drop the choreography and autotune. But she has talent, it just needs to be utilized in a better way.
