Half the time it's their own damn fault.
So many videos of metal bands with women in are no different to videos of Katy Perry or Nicki Minaj with all the flaunting of half-naked "look at me I'm female"-ness. In This Moment, Huntress, The Agonist, Ackercocke, Kittie, Halestorm, Lacuna Coil. All guilty of it. None are particularly good.

tl;dr
But I will say that metal is pretty sexist overall.

^ yeah cos discrimination based on how someone chooses to dress/not dress is fine
EDIT: actually cos I didn't read the article you might not be saying what I thought you were saying

you would lump Akercocke with that lot? at least the sex fits in their case, they have tons of songs with sexual references.

Yeah. They're torn between a feminist cause and a marketing ploy that makes them money. Of course they're gonna spring for the money.

That makes it worse. It means that image seeps into their lyrics too.

do you listen to them? i don't want to turn into Akercocke defender man, but i feel like you don't. a lot of the sexual references are relatively subtle. also, they're a bunch of dudes playing death metal with gutturals.

i'm just saying that i think they're a different case.

Plenty of women like/play metal. They're just all fat and ugly.

I don't know I've been in bands with women before and I'm starting a band now with a female drummer. It won't be metal but whatevs who cares?

Give me your opinion about this article: the.

You can blame the marketing of the label, every female-fronted band on Century Media *cough* Lacuna Coil *cough* Arch Enemy *cough*. So many shots of just the frontwomen and not the whole band, sex sell plain and simple.

She's complaining that a female metal singer was asked about what it was like to be a woman in a male dominated field. Really? To think that question isn't relevant or important is quite stupid.

Yeah, I can get behind this article. No need to create a divide with questions like that.

That's the whole point though; it shouldn't be considered relevant or important. Seriously, why does the sex of a performer/musician matter, even if the genre is male dominated? Isn't the important thing the music and the band?

What makes it worse is that apparently a Feminist Magazine asked that question. That's like a kick in the teeth to their readers.

Women in metal are non existence.

It's what the metal is, in women.
