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.

the only metal women should be in is a sturdy chastity belt
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

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.
Someone is wrong on the internet. Only you can help.

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.

A woman's view of a male dominated culture that has a penchant for hyper-masculinity is a legitimate angle. It's a valid question. Just because it doesn't focus on the music or the band doesn't mean it's a bad question.
Also, of course a feminist magazine would ask that question, why wouldn't it?

EDIT: Huh, it's just a Q&A. I agree that titling a Q&A in a way that highlights just ONE issue is quite dumb, and shoe-horning the "woman in metal" topic is out of place. My post assumed it was a question or two about being a woman in metal in a more traditional interview article.

Unless its bringing something legitimately new or of concern to the table, it's inane and will contribute nothing but dumb sound bytes. The best course of action is to not even engage this

There's a Korean rapper named jackie chain with long, luscious hair that grew up in the deep south and makes trap music. Should we give him an interview too?

Women are too intelligent and aesthetically minded to enjoy metal.

The article makes a fair point
When I see that some woman is in a metal band the first thing I want to ask is "are they good?" which is the questions you usually ask after hearing of a band

Thing is, any time there is a woman in a band (even an ugly one), they will always get more attention that the other members purely for being female, which is dumb

If you have a hot woman in your band you are 90% more likely to get somewhere which is totally unfair
