Tonight’s Jukebox introduces an upcoming theme week: The Dark Side of the Womb
We’re going into the shadows...into women’s fights, women’s plights and the lies we tell ourselves about how moral and superior women are. Say Wha?!
Coming next week in Those Crazy Bitches, we’ll be looking at women and anger. A bit of Rage anyone? How about the suppression of it? Who better to kick this thing off than Ani Difranco? In Pixie she tells us “I’m a chipper, cheerful free-for-all and I light up a room. I’m a colour me happy girl, just live and let live, and when they’re out for blood, I’ll always give”. Here’s a theme song for anyone who plays by the rule ‘just suck up and be nice’.
If Women Ruled the World...and other Gender Myths...Br. Bergen goes debunking. If any of the points he’ll be making gets you all rattled, so will this atrocity by Beyonce! I don’t blame you if you don’t watch the whole thing. I mean, after all, you might be inspired to go get some gold stilettos, take off your clothes, shake your tits and run a nation. Girl Power! Yeah! (Insert eye roll and resigned sigh here.)
Women vs. Women...Br. TJ will take us through a compelling essay. While filing through the dozens of appropriate songs that could express this theme, I was left wondering, do women have anything to fight about besides men? Goodness there’s a lot of music where one lady’s competing with another for a guy. But this one is by far the funniest! Go go Julie Brown, show that bitch who’s boss and hold on to your man prize!
