Men! They mansplain politics and say “well, actually” every time you tweet about something comics- or politics-related. They take up three seats on the train without a smidgen of remorse. They buy you a cocktail and act indignant when you refuse, even though you didn’t ask for or agree to drink it in the first place. They need so many back pats for their bizarrely self-righteous feminism. Sometimes they wake up and decide maybe they’ll defund Planned Parenthood today, or pass sweeping anti-LGBT legislation in their states, maybe that’s something they can find the time to do before dinner.
The good news is you don’t have to handle your feminist ire alone. Dozens of female artists have penned misandrist anthems to help heal our collective rage by commiserating with our frustrations. Below you will find a playlist of 19 of those anthems to empower and soothe you.
I want to give a special thank you to my second favorite Scorpio, Raquel, who contributed several songs to this playlist.
