Brit Awards 2022: Should gender categories be scrapped?


Written by:

Let’s talk.

With the recent work of the Brit Awards bringing about new change with nominees, hosts and artists … they also see gender categories being scrapped in next years’ global industry awards show that is set to take place in February.

After Sam Smith came out as non-binary in 2019, the discussions of commercial music awards have been re-hauled and flipped as we see gender-neutral categories take a debut stand, in an effort to simply not see women being overlooked in an industry ripen with male domination through every sector. The first nominations under this new category-regime actually sees the most female nominees in the decade with the power of music heroines rising again in our industry.

But with many seeing this typically “woke” and absurd to the standard rules of society as we see fit, many see it in a step in the right direction for a changing world in how we see each other … and how we see ourselves. Although it may cause initial confusion and possible idiocy among something we don’t understand, I believe this is just a case of “no harm, no foul”especially if it comes off as music artists feeling more comfortable in an industry that does every effort to do the exact opposite.

But, should the gender categories be scrapped? Seeing a THEM category as opposed to MEN and FEMALE categories that is formidably more accurate, are we just not ready [or accepting of it] yet?

    I don’t follow the award shows, nor am I British.

    I saw Ann Wilson from Heart in an interview on TV. This was a number of years ago. In the interview, she said that music awards shouldn’t distinguish between genders (i.e. male vocalist, female vocalist). She said something to the effect of “just vocalist”. It makes sense to me. Awesome pipes are awesome, regardless of owner. Perhaps it wasn’t done because Ann would have kicked the crap out of the other voices out there? There are still tons of singers who aren’t remotely in her league.

    If it’s good enough for her, it’s good enough for me.

      Yeah absolutely. I don’t see anything wrong with it, if it makes the music artists within the industry more comfortable with who they are. Besides, it brings a whole new cultural shift in ourselves in a society that is constantly evolving. I’m looking forward to it; see if you can catch it overseas next year!
