Weezerpedia's featured quote is a monthly showcase of a quote from our transcript archives. Weezerpedia currently has hundreds of interviews, record reviews, articles, and more, and our editors work together each month to select one that sheds light on the bands/topics we cover, highlights or "platforms" a band we want to support, etc. We have similar pages for featured songs, featured videos, featured articles, and featured images. Weezerpedia:Featured list is being put on hiatus for a spell.

From "'Thank God for Girls': Tracking Weezer’s Brand of Nerd Misogyny", published November 7, 2015 in Jezebel.

What does it mean for an artist to ask his fans to forgive his misogyny preemptively? Does this acknowledgement excuse it? Perhaps initially, one may choose to listen to Cuomo’s instructions and view it as some sort of concept record, as Pinkerton was originally meant to be. But misogyny isn’t “conceptual”; it’s a very real problem, and Weezer has a big problem with it. As Jenny Zhang wrote in Rookie regarding her personal relationship to Pinkerton’s “Across the Sea,” “The only person present in these songs is the white man imagining all of it.”

-Quinn Moreland, Jezebel
