Misognynist pop lyrics, no comment required

It ain’t rappers who invented misogyny in popular music, is all I’m saying-

Who wants yesterday’s papers
Who wants yesterday’s girl
Who wants yesterday’s papers
Nobody in the world

Rolling Stones “Yesterdays News”

and that “happy” In the Summertime –

You got women, you got women on your mind
Have a drink, have a drive
Go out and see what you can find

If her daddy’s rich, take her out for a meal
If her daddy’s poor, just do what you feel

Mungo Jerry “In the Summertime” 

If only there were a word that described the relentless assault on the worth of women…. No, wait….
