Yes. I don't listen to it often, but I don't stop listening to a song because I notice that the lyrics are brutal. I do think that the lyrics in a lot of top 40 are pretty fucked up, but it's catchy so whatevs.

Herp derp I can't make out whet they're saying because I don't speak Jive.


Yea, I'm so hip and up-to-date, I make references to Airplane.

well if it's done with a sense of irony then it's whatever - when it comes to sexist stuff

I can't say I've ever come across anything that plays on homophobia, it's always just actual straight up hate

So is it something to do with the person making the music or just the lyrical content that you don't like?
#16
I do, but I feel bad about it, so it's okay.

Isn't most homophobia basically a hate-based mentality, anyways?

Yeah. If you listen to early 90s hip hop with modern ears it's straight up "whoa."

No. But I wouldn't listen to blatantly misogynistic and/or homophobic music of any kind, regardless of genre.

the lyrical content. i guess if an MC was homophobic but never mentioned i wouldn't think they're as cool as i might have before, but i'd still listen to the music. but if the music contains the homophobic or sexist shit it makes me extremely uncomfortable to listen to it.

i also agree with the folks that insist that MCs should cut the crap because it gives rap and hip hop a terrible image. MCs often want to tackle social issues but it really hits their credibility when they throw around hate like that.

#25
I would not, but I should note that there's a lot of things I don't find misogynistic that others do.
#26
Doesn't that rule out, like, almost all rap/hip-hop?

Yeah, I've not stopped listening to a song because of the lyrical content - like lolmnt, I feel a bit bad sometimes, but. is about the extent of a response I can summon to it.

Somewhat. You can't deny it's ridiculously pervasive.

I also kinda liked that Blurred Lines song even though it's kinda blatantly about rape.

if you're not in the business of looking for hip hop (i assume that's you), sexism is an almost certainty, and if it were the 90s then homophobia would be certain as well.

but if you're searching all around, it's not nearly as pervasive as it seems.

still an issue if you ask me though.

If it's a recurring theme for an artist, then it'll turn me off that artist. But if there's one misogynistic/homophobic line in a song, it'll make me cringe, but it probably won't make me stop listening to the whole song/album/artist.

That thing I said about my disagreements on what qualifies as misogynistic?

The claims about this song are ridiculous.

The homophobia is definitely still there in non-mainstream songs.

but if you're searching all around, it's not nearly as pervasive as it seems.


It is tho

You may not think it's about rape, but as far as misogyny goes, "Blurred Lines" is basically a guide book for how to sound like a sexist asshole.
