Yoko Ono? Whasn’t she the reason the Beatles fell apart?

Not exactly a Beatles-fan? Having only a vague and probably wrong conception about Yoko Ono and her role regarding the Beatles?

Read this enlightening text about Yoko Ono and the misogyny and racism towards her. It made me realize how wrong I—as someone who knows not much about neither Yoko Ono, John Lennon nor the Beatles—was about her. And it teached me—not much caring for music—about some bad role expectations against women in art and music in particular.

Unfortunately a lot of the embedded video have been deleted (seriously, this whole copyright hurts culture incredibly. IMHO the use of these videos in this context falls under fair use in the US).

Don't be the product, buy the product!
