WHY is it that so many young men think it's OK to sing, rap or record music that degrades women and 'normalises' rape and violence towards them?
It is no longer the edgy, dark, underground singers that do this. It's mainstream rappers and hip-hop artists whose songs are played on the radio. Music our children listen to, music that we sing along to.
Did you know the term 'molly' is urban slang for a pure form of the drug ecstasy? I thought it was a girl's name. Am I the only one? Do we really pay attention to lyrics? It seems we should.
