can someone explain what was objectionable about the name girl band. not trying to be contrarian here, I genuinely want to know the substance of the complaint. is it because they’re all dudes?

I'm a bit maybe oldmanning about it too.

I thought the THE POINT was that women who do music were getting lumped under some reductive girl band moniker and removing the ability of the press and public to do that by reassigning the term was the subversive act. Continuing as that and growing in success would remove that reductive from music talk over time, backing down allows it back into the lexicon.

But then i suppose there are girl bands who want to be called girl bands or something.

They can do what they like, i'll still enjoy what they do anywhoo. It's only, like, my opinion, man.

The band clearly don't care and weren't making a big statement with their name, be damned if anyone is going to talk me into caring on their behalf.
