This Knockoff Taylor Swift Song Sets Women Back Farther Than “Blurred Lines”

What is the issue?

It’s been a while since we’ve had a cringeworthy music video to talk about, and country (ish?) artist RaeLynn has come through to fill that void with this super-regressive song about how girls are there to give guys someone to open doors for, tie their ties, and, I assume, never leave the kitchen. And unlike the other virally bad videos we’ve had recently, this is not by some production studio for rich kids to pretend to be pop stars. This is a real song, on VEVO, from a real production studio. RaeLynn is, from what I can tell, a real artist. And these are the kind of lyrics she is putting her name to.

If you don’t think it’s that bad, I suggest you watch it. Because, yeah. It’s THAT bad. TC mark
