Neko Case’s brilliant comeback to Playboy’s sexist tweet
Playboy recently tweeted a link to its latest article about Neko Case, saying that she was “breaking the mold of what women in the music industry should be.” It was not taken lightly, and rightfully so.
@PlayboyDotCom Am I? IM NOT A FUCKING “WOMAN IN MUSIC”, IM A FUCKING MUSICIAN IN MUSIC!

It then got even better, when someone tweeted at her that she was refusing a comment.
“Don’t Peggy Olsen me, motherfuckers” is one for the books. Later, she made it clear that she doesn’t have an axe to grind with Playboy specifically, but just the whole “women in…” trope, which should meet a swift death.
To be fair, it’s not just @PlayboyDotCom who do the “Women in…”, everyone still does it, WOMEN do it. I can’t hang.
