Check Out This Feminist Parody of Meghan Trainor’s ‘Dear Future Husband’

When Meghan Trainer’s “Dear Future Husband” song was released, the 1950s-inspired music video quickly received backlash on social media for being sexist and anti-feminist. In this song, Trainer lays out exactly what her future husband will have to do in order to be with her for the rest of his life. Some of the song’s lyrics appear to have a feminist message about defying traditional gender roles, including, “So don’t be thinking I’ll be home and baking apple pies.” But other lyrics perpetuate gender stereotypes, such as “I’ll be the perfect wife, buying groceries buying what you need.”

YouTuber Megan Mackay took to the internet to personally correct the flaws she sees in Meghan Trainer’s video. Mackay created a feminist parody of the song, emphasizing how women should be treated as equals in heterosexual relationships. The parody mocks the overly domestic female character that Meghan Trainer portrays in the “Dear Future Husband” video. All in all, Mackay has a clear message for everyone in any sort of relationship: “We’ve just gotta make sure we treat each other right.”
