10. Referring to Women As “B*tches” & “H*es”
Hip-Hop, like many other genres of music, is made by the young, for the young. It makes sense that the average teenage Hip-Hop fan doesn’t have an enlightened view of women — how many of us really had all our marbles about us when we were 13? The danger in this trend is when men over the age of 21 refer to women in this disrespectful manner, conveniently forgetting that the recipient of the insult is someone’s mother, sister, aunt, cousin, and/or daughter…meanwhile, they’d be the same men who’d catch a charge if someone referred to their mother, sister, aunt, cousin, and/or daughter that way. Classy.
