The feminists hated me in the '70s. It was strange because I considered myself a feminist, but I also thought that men were treated badly during that decade. They were ball-beaten and didn't deserve it; they didn't even know what they did wrong. I think the [feminist movement] wanted someone to speak for them - to be articulate. I wasn't articulate enough about it.
The other singer was rocker Suzi Quatro. She too departed from feminist orthodoxy in her account of her life when talking about her greatest regret:
I have regrets ... There are things you're supposed to learn in life. My biggest regret was terminating a pregnancy when I was about 18. Every day I think about who that baby would be now; it still makes me sad.
