VIDEO – 30 sexist popular songs that are not rap (Part 1)

Posted on

You know it, rap is supposed to be the most sexist music ever created. Really? Then, explain to us why Georges Brassens, Metallica and Robin Thicke call women “bitches” or Guns N’ Roses, Johnny Cash and Johnny Hallyday sing about femicides in peace and quiet… It must be a matter of point of view. Besides, these men are artists, creators and distanced narrators who use off-beat humor.
