Actually, entertainment in general, especially music gets away with it. You should try opening your eyes a little bit wider.

But honestly none of this has anything to do with how you framed this thread though. You try TOO hard, and in the process of doing so make yourself look hateful and ignorant. You're better than this.

Rock music's misogynistic? Can we cite some examples? REM? U2? Bruce Springsteen? Arcade Fire? Radiohead? Coldplay? PJ Harvey? Cher?

Implying that rock music is institutionally misogynistic (as opposed to individual artists occasionally displaying elements of misogyny) in the way that hip hop is just isn't a sustainable argument. It simply isn't worth taking seriously and is a complete deflection on the part of those who are either too cowardly or naive to critique elements of black culture for fear of being accused of racism.

If you genuinely don't believe that modern day hip hop is institutionally misogynistic to its core, you either haven't listened to any recently, or don't understand the lyrics.

Here we go again with "black culture"

Wow, and you're lecturing others about being taken seriously or being naive?

If this is white culture, then does that mean if I point out 8 artists that happen to be black and aren't misogynistic does that mean you're wrong about "black culture"?

If financeguy actually tried listening to rap music instead of parroting the bullshit generated in the echo chambers by his ilk, maybe he'd realize how completely stupid he sounds

How about half of the hair bands of the 80s? Kiss? Or the Nickelback "I like you better on your knees" brorock? Your head is so far up your tight ass that it's cutting off circulation to your brain

Under My Thumb, that was pretty misogynistic. "White culture" music has been full of that throughout history.

It's the risk you take for quoting Nickelback at any given time.

In my defense, I think it's a paraphrase

Who gets the blame when Eminem is misogynistic? Is it black culture's fault still?

So does this mean that you are not even familiar with the rap lyrics or the "black culture" that you are railing against?

Eminem is just a white sellout to the black culture. They probably brainwashed him.

I think this is the key to the whole argument. financeguy is jealous that he can't get away with more misogyny in his day to day life. Otherwise, I have no idea why this angle was even brought up
