PHOTOS: Men Become Sex Objects When Country Music Flips Gender Roles

Country music isn’t exactly known for having a very sophisticated take on gender roles — to the extent that the term “bro-country” is actually a thing. Really, Google it.

And after you throw up a little in your mouth, take a look at what happens when the roles are reversed (literally) in a video by 18-year-old up-and-coming duo Maddie & Tae for their song “Girl In a Country Song.”

We can certainly get behind the song’s core message, a decisively anti bro-country platform:

I hear you over there on your tailgate whistlin’
Sayin’ “Hey girl,” but you know I ain’t listenin’
Cause I got a name and to you it ain’t
pretty little thing, honey or baby
It’s driving me red red red red red red redneck crazy

The video is posted below, but to spare you the act of watching/listening to it, we grabbed all the fun parts. We shouldn’t all have to have it stuck in our heads today.

    I cannot stand the sound of country music, but this video is fantastic. Well, the concept of the video is what’s fantastic, and it was beautifully executed too.

    I’m hoping every straight guy has to watch this and see how humiliating it feels to be objectified this way. And an aside, I just happen to love when guys wear girls’ stuff….

  • Tracy Pope

    Video is amusing. It’s not that bad for a country song. I’ve heard a lot worse.
    It won’t make most straight men give the issue much thought but maybe some will at least realize they’re objectifying women. Maybe wishful thinking.

    @CarrieV: sorry but its a real ego feed for alot of guys to be objectified.

  • JaredNorthcutt30

    A discussion about objectification on Queerty. Hell has frozen over.

    Let’s face it. A woman that looked like the big guy would NEVER be in a video or be considered sexy by most of America, if not the world. And even if she was allowed in the video, she’d be covered head to toe in a burlap sack, not showing off her rolls.

    Interesting,lol. Guy in the pink tank top is actually pretty hot,lol.
