Misogyny is the dislike, distrust, or ingrained prejudice of women. Our culture has accepted misogynistic ideals for far too long, and it doesn’t seem to be coming to an end any time soon.
A popular hiphop song by Chris Brown tittled, Loyal or (These hoes aint loyal) is a great example of how our society not only degrades women, but openly expresses and promotes misogynistic ideals. The song’s lyrics go on to describe women as disloyal and untrustworthy all while calling them hoes.
The fact that such a song became a hit record, and was created by someone who actually abused a woman (Rihanna) goes to show just how blind our culture is to the degradation of women.
Songs like this openly promote an ingrained prejudice for women. Children growing up in this society are exposed to these catchy songs and accept the lyrics as a way of thinking and they often aspire to emulate them as well. This of course leads to high sexual and domestic violence rates, harassment, and the continuous promotion of prejudice against women.
