Welcome To The Bitchery

Trigger warning, the song deals with rape and female genital mutilation.

From an analytical standpoint, it's perfect for talking to students. We can talk about why the title and refrain say "You're a woman now" after each vignette. We can also broaden the scope to talk about cultural definitions of womanhood and manhood at large.


I'm tentatively looking forward to it, but this will have to wait until later in the semester. I don't think they're quite there yet. They got a preview, as I was listening to the song when they came into class today.

The song features Emilie Autumn on violin, for those who might be curious on that point.
