about

Few things enrage me like the storytelling trope in comics of "women in refrigerators," where a female character is subjected to death or needless, sexualized violence purely to support a male character's story.

All of the artist profits from this track between 6Octo1017 and 31Dec2017 will be donated to the Durham Crisis Response Center: www.durhamcrisisresponse.org

lyrics

When I opened up my fridge, guess what things I saw?
Mayo, milk, and some Greek yogurt, a chicken left to thaw
But you know what I didn't see, what should be off the wall
Women in refrigerators, it don't make sense at all

I love comics, yes I do, but it makes no sense to me
Why are women just sexy lamps in some lame dude's story?
A child could do better playing pretend with some dolls
Women in refrigerators, it don't make sense at all

So when your favorite heroine is fridged and turns up dead
Or maimed or worse or depowered or evilly misled
So when you see this tragedy, make sure you can recall
Women in refrigerators, it don't make sense at all

I love comics, yes I do, but it makes no sense to me
Why are women just sexy lamps in some lame dude's story?
A child could do better playing pretend with some dolls
Women in refrigerators, it don't make sense at all

So this goes out to Batgirl, and poor old Gwen Stacy
To Karen Page, Elektra too, and both Black Canaries
They made Mandy Pryor a brood made, can you stand the gall
Women in refrigerators, they don't make sense at all

I love comics, yes I do, but it makes no sense to me
Why are women just sexy lamps in some lame dude's story?
A child could do better playing pretend with some dolls
Women in refrigerators, it don't make sense at all

When I opened up my fridge, guess what things I saw?
Mayo, milk, and some Greek yogurt, a chicken left to thaw
But you know what I didn't see, what should be off the wall
Women in refrigerators, it don't make sense at all
