Sexism in the Arts
So the NY Times recently tweeted this:
A 27-year-old mother who barely uses social media is selling more albums than anyone thought was still possible
The person they were talking about? Adele. ADELE. You know, the woman who has 21.4 MILLION Twitter followers. The woman who just blew past N*Sync’s record for debut week. The woman with the top hit songs that pretty much everyone is singing.
- inept social media user
This is some grade-A bullshit. Because at the end of the day, the same attitude exists for women in any creative field. The same questions. The same dismissiveness and reductions.
