Neko Case Takes On Playboy

Neko+Case

Musician Neko Case was not very appreciate of some sexist comments Playboy threw her way, when they tried to compliment her. Here’s the tweet exchange that went down:

“DONT PEGGY OLSEN ME, MOTHERFUCKERS” refers to a quote from Mad Men in which Pete thought he was complimenting Peggy by telling her something like, “You’re just as good as any other woman in this business.”

A lot of people are praising her and a lot of people are saying she overreacted. Where do you stand? Personally, I say, you go, Neko. Why are women a niche? You go!

  • This stupid bitch needs to be slapped. She’s just doing it for attention because nobody knows who the fuck she is…. and of course Playboy will issue a public apology when they should just tell her to fuck off.

      • The fact that I don’t follow shitty fucking music means I don’t know anything about it? I bet you’re one of those feminist carpet munchers aren’t ya?

  • I get what she’s saying, but it does seem like a huge overreaction. Take the compliment in the spirit it was intended to be.

  • Well, she IS a woman. In music. She should embrace it and stop validating sexist connotations where they aren’t meant. Playboy might be stupid but they are also not a factor in anything. Being a woman is what you make and think of it, not what someone else says it is. She is a woman in music and she should be proudly so.

  • HEART EYES. One of my favourite musicians referencing one of my favourite characters taking down one of my least favourite publications. Go, Neko Case, go! I totally see what she meant. Women are “female singers”. Men are just “singers”.

  • I can see her point. Women are often unfairly separated from a group of performers, professionals, etc. by specifying that they are female. Even if that is an attempt at praise, I understand how it can be taken as coddling, from men, by women who have struggled to be taken seriously. When the comment comes from a men’s’ magazine known for objectifying women, it must hurt even worse.

  • This bitch needs a five across the eyes. Take a compliment and shut up. Yes, you are a woman in music, face it bitch

  • Gosh there’s a lot of trolls here, and I forgot my troll food…no wait, here’s some – they never tell Justin Beiber that she’s breaking the mold of what women in the music industry should be
