Still Relevant.

The line "Fear of a female planet" in Sonic Youth's "Kool Thing" was a reference to Public Enemy's 1990 album Fear of a Black Planet.  But listening to the song for the first time in a long while it struck me as still very relevant.  When even the mildest of feminist criticisms of society can still generate vitriol and threats of violence it's not hard to think that a lot of people are still afraid of a planet where women have more freedom.
