I think Weezer lyrics from Blue/Pinkterton (never listened further) are intentionally cringey and creepy, and it just hasn't aged so well in relation to how our society has changed. It's almost like a Woody Allen effect where the subject matter at the time is like WOW LOOK AT THIS SO EDGY AND HONEST (like fuzzy's POV) but fast forward a few decades and it's more obvious that it's not just abstract commentary on an uncomfortable subject, but in fact is posing as that while underneath there is actual real creepiness and expression of the artist's creepy attitudes and inappropriate behaviors.

LaBelle hit the nail on the head though– people get upset when others point shit like this out because they see it as an indictment against themselves. It's just kind of dumb and a really uncritical way to approach art, from my perspective.
