Tarah: “‘Supposedly, A Man’ is our new single. It’s about this man I was serving when I was a bartender. Long story short, he came in wasted and asked that I served him more alcohol. I said ‘No’ since… well I don’t make laws, and he got pretty upset. He was rude to me and disrespectful to his pregnant wife who ended up leaving.
The next day, one of his friends came up to me and showed me a picture of him, and what he does. I supposed it should have justified his behavior. The story itself is pretty simple but the meaning behind it should be remembered.
The #MeToo movement has awakened the anger with both the atrocities committed against women and everyday gender inequalities systematic of society. This frustration detonates with ‘Supposedly A Man’ as we are taking real-life snapshots of men who demand respect but do nothing to earn it. Too often, the extremely low bar for behavior or “boys will be boys” creates a society where violence against women, societal injustice, or just disrespect are the status quo.”
