Meanwhile there is still a disturbing problem in rap/hiphop, with women being referenced as "ho"trick"bish"and in the form of an object.

womens human rights are always in a more "immediate" danger than any other sex or creed imho.
A 2008 study of the Egyptian Center for Women’s Rights, a nongovernmental group, found that 83 percent of Egyptian women reported sexual harassment, and 62 percent of Egyptian men admitted that they had harassed women.
In the 2008 survey by the women’s center, 53 percent of Egyptian men said that harassed women “bring it on.” Recently, a female member of the Muslim Brotherhood movement suggested that women should change their dress, banning tight, sleeveless and short clothes. A separation of women and men would also help, she suggested.
“This is ridiculous,” said Ms. Ezzat, who wears a veil, wide blouses and long skirts or trousers. “It is not a question of clothes, because many of the harassed women are wearing a veil, and it is also not a question of religion or religiosity,” she said — harassers come from all neighborhoods; they are Muslims and Coptic Christians.

Women are not equal in any society, including western. The sooner we all realise this and force a change the better for all society.
Women aren't equal? I can't have sex with my boss and get a promotion. I can't have sex with a woman on tv for 15 minutes and get paid 50,000 bucks either. I see women in all branches of U.S. government, most nurses are women and a man cannot compete in the medical field near as well. Stow that b.s. because there's no truth in that versus western society. Men have gone to jail for women lying about being raped, you don't see women going to jail for men lying about being raped. Case in point that kid in California who was sentanced to 10 years in prison and served 5 of those years until she spilled the beans to him about lying about the rape and then she said "lets just let bygones be bygones" because she didn't want to go to prison or have to repay the 1.5 million bucks she got for lying. So woman lies about beign raped and causes a guy to lose 5 years of his life and is then like "I just stole 5 years from your life so uh, can we just be friends?".
