NOT APRIL FOOLS: Green Day Is Releasing a 'Handbook' On Being a Woman


The band Green Day is set to release a new “handbook” about….being a woman?

Yep. True story. Here’s the announcement, via Rolling Stone:

Lest you be wondering, no, this is not an April Fool’s prank.

The “handbook,” which was also illustrated by a man, is reportedly “an inspiring homage and handbook for the rebellious everywoman who refuses to capitulate" and will celebrate “true rebel girls," according to the publisher.

Green Day frontman Billie How Armstrong says the book started as an homage to his wife, then spiraled from there.

“Then I started getting into more of my own beliefs — anything from a little book of conspiracies to playing vinyl records or something,” he explained. “It’s sort of about an empowering, sort of subterranean kind of lifestyle, but at the same time there’s a new era coming in with the way we all need to live.”

If any of that makes sense to you.

I know I'm running the risk of sounding like a crazy feminist here (and I'm not one). But to remind, Green Day is a three-member band comprised of…well, all men. Who’ve never been women. Which was a really fun fact Twitter users were quick to seize on.


But hey, we also live in a world in which men can simply claim womanhood because they "feel" like one and trounce them in their own sports leagues, and the ACLU thinks that's not a problem in the slightest. So why not a handbook for women written exclusively by men?

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to finish my guide to being a little boy growing up in the slums of Bangkok.
