Dion, Celine : Treat her like a lady

For some people it is 1978 - for ever! Celine Dion fans - and yes, she does have fans, there are people who are fanatical about Celine Dion. These are the same folks who mourn the demise of Watney Red Barrel and The Black & White Minstrel Show and were a tad upset that Michael Bolton shaved the mullet. They are wEiRdUh! They are StRaNgE! They are dAnGeRoUs! And there are billions more of them than there
are of us!



This has to be the oddest record ever reviewed on these pages. Celine raps hardcore radical feminism! Yes she does! She says that we've got to treat women like "ladies". Otherwise they might go "crazy". This is possibly the most profound statement on the subject of women's oppression since Germaine Greer's The Female Eunuch. Think on, fellas! Are YOU treating her "like a lady" ie, opening doors for her, throwing your cloak over puddles and pretending not to notice when she farts? Well, you better be, boy! Otherwise you'll make Celine "crazy" and she'll have your scrotal-sacs for pop-socks, you sexist scum.
