What is it with men acting like it's them that gets to decide what 'lady-like' behaviour is? Seriously?

So I'm on youtube, and someone sends me this link to Jessie J and her single "Do It Like A Dude". I'm told she's like "the British Lady Gaga", which made me go a bit like this :/ because I love my Mama Monster and I'm really wary of people proclaiming other artists to be like her. I give it a go though and I have to admit, it's pretty darn catchy. Then I see "Do It Like a Dude - acoustic" and because I'm a sucker for a girl and a guitar, I check it out.

And damn.


She can sing. She's not just autotuned nonsense and ridic dance moves. She has a set of pipes on her. So I get all excited and read through the comments, expecting people to be like "yay, finally another female artist who can actually carry a tune without the help of a computer" (and yes, I know, it's YouTube, I kind of set myself up for failure). Of course, some guy decides to leave a comment along the lines of:

"this is degrading and she is not acting like a lady"

And maybe it's because I'm tired and I don't feel well but FUCK. What the hell is this 'lady-like' behaviour, and who gets to decide what is 'lady-like' and what isn't? From what I can see, it's apparently men. Fuck that. (this is pretty much what I said in response to that guy,  btw.)

So yes. Just wanted to put that out there because it really pissed me off and I will probably add more when I'm not feeling like throwing up. Thoughts, comments?

I posted a Lanie Lane video a couple of weeks ago, but I just want to pimp out her new single What Do I Do? which is freaking awesome. This is a live version, but I think you can find the radio version on the triple j site. She's amazing and adorable and I love love love her style.

So today, thanks to a friend of mine, I discovered Lanie Lane.

I'm a Jazz baby, and I grew up listening to the Andrews Sisters and Billie Holiday and a whole number of musicians from the 30's - 50's. So when I saw the description for her on her facebook page, I had to check her out. And I think she's brilliant and I'm totally squeeing listening to her because she's just adorable and wonderful and very talented and why hasn't she been signed yet? ♥
