I had a very interesting debate on Twitter on Sunday, 15th October 2017. An asinine Liberal who is unable to defend his assertion and resort to profanities and insult isn’t exactly uncommon, but there you go.
As you can see from Screenshot #1, I (@spidieboy56) was replying to Sasha Brown (@SBrown2012)’s tweet regarding the promotion of violence in rap culture. Subsequently, a rap music fan, Sean White (@seanomydog22) started to defend rap music by claiming that all kinds of music contain misogynistic lyrics and they are not solely confined to rap music.
What Sean said is true, misogynistic lyrics do exist in all genres of music. For example, it can be interpreted that Queen’s hit-song “Killer Queen” is misogynistic as the song is about a high-class prostitute, which critics claim it’s demeaning to women. I whole-heartedly admit it even though I am a huge fan of Queen and Freddie Mercury. However, the disgusting and filthy language used towards women is most prevalent in rap music.
As you can see from Screenshot #2, I pointed out that songs by John Denver, Chicago, Bee Gees and Air Supply do not contain the kind of misogynistic and filthy language towards women as compared to songs by rappers like Eminem, Lil Wayne and Kanye West.
For the sake of preventing Leftist lunatics from labelling me a “racist”, let’s compare the lyrics of a song by white rapper, Eminem with the lyrics of a song by John Denver. For equality’s sake, I will choose songs that feature women in their lyrics.
The pre-chorus of Eminem’s “Kill You” is as follows:
“You don’t wanna fuck with me
Girls neither, you ain’t nothin’ but a slut to me
Bitch, I’ma kill you! You ain’t got the balls to beef
We ain’t gon’ never stop beefin’, I don’t squash the beef
You better kill me, I’ma be another rapper dead
For poppin’ off at the mouth with shit I shouldn’t have said
But when they kill me, I’m bringin’ the world with me
Bitches too, you ain’t nothin’ but a girl to me”
in contrast to John Denver’s “Annie’s Song”,
“Come let me love you
Let me give my life to you
Let me drown in your laughter
Let me die in your arms
Let me lay down beside you
Let me always be with you
Come let me love you
Come love me again”
Eminem’s “Kill You” clearly labels women as “bitches” and “sluts” and he’s “gonna kill her”, whereas John Denver’s “Annie’s Song” portrays the singer giving his love and life to his woman. I hereby challenge anyone who is reading this to find me a song by John Denver song that contains degrading terms such as “bitches”, “sluts” and “whores” when referring to women.
I hereby challenge anyone who is reading this to find me a song by John Denver that contains degrading terms such as “bitches”, “sluts” and “whores” when referring to women. Or any song by a country singer.
Sean, who is clearly getting irate, replied to me by saying it’s none of my business and since I don’t listen to rap, how would I know what I’m talking about.
When it seems like he has displayed enough ignorance, he finds it necessary to reiterate how ignorant he is.
I pointed out to Sean that he has a very narrow mindset, making the assumption that a person who doesn’t like rap music won’t bother to do research on the lyrics of rap songs.
Instead of continuing the debate with logical and well-thought-out responses to support his point, or conceding defeat graciously, Sean wants me to “shut the fu*k up”.
Sensing his double standards, Sean quickly deleted his “shut the fu*k up” tweet.
I thought Liberals often claim to be “tolerant” and “inclusive”? A Liberal like Sean who seems uncomfortable when his beliefs (country music is as misogynistic as rap music) are challenged, and want people to shut the fu*k up instead of engaging in a logical and mature debate. If you think Sean is the exception rather than the norm, you would be very surprised. I have debated with many Liberal tweeters and this is the pattern I notice 99.9% of the time.
Sorry Liberals, while you have the right to be offended (even though being offended by differing opinions shows how childish and immature you are), I have the right to cause offence. It’s time you grow up and accept that not everyone will possess the same views as you, and not everyone with different opinions should be shut down so you won’t feel uncomfortable. The world does not revolve around you, Liberals.
