BitchTapes: The Maneater Mixtape

A few weeks ago, I was at a party, talking to a guy I'd never met. I told him I work for a feminist magazine. He got very sincere. 

“You're a feminist,” he said. “Does that mean you hate men?” 

This is a persistent myth. There are plenty of things in the world that hate men, but I'm not one of them. Instead of fearing feminism, dudes should fret over the genuine maneaters: Sharks. Tigers. Godzilla. 

For this Friday's BitchTapes, I put together this playlist of songs about maneaters. Now, instead of having to counter the man-hating question with a reasoned response, I'll just press play.
