    Separate categories for male/female……are you kidding. What happened to “we are equal” “girlpower” etc. Measure all with the same stick and let the chips fall. So tired of we want equality but only if we win or come out on top. Clearly women aren’t ready for all the equality they claim to want. Go put on a pink pussy (cry baby) hat and march. You’re good at that.

    they aren’t measured with the same stick if the voting is down by men and the awards are paid for by men. Yes, you start out at $15 grand just to maybe get nominated.

    Lolol. My bad. So FAKE AWARDS to go with the FAKE NEWS. But just like the FAKE #metoo “organic movement” the females all apparently know and still participate? So confusing….

    Lol @ “I wish the #Grammys would return to female/male categories” Yea but werent you birds complaining about being treated equally? But when you are, you get dominated by the men, then complain about not being good enough.
