    I think it manifests mostly by some men harassing women on the street by whistling, turning around in flagrant manner to say "oooooh", honking, etc. I used to do it. Some of my friends still do it. Its just not a way to act. The same is true, btw, when its women who do this to men; I had a friiend get his balls grabbed by a woman in public; its just not a way to act.

    I dont think its wrong to "objectify" memebers of the opposite sex, but it is wrong to openly harass them.

    And as far as rap music goes, you just have to hear the words rappers use to refer to women.

    Only a small percentage of rap music even focuses on that, the majority of rap's subject matter involves respect and to a lesser degree violence(against other men) and survivalism/nihilism. There is a good percentage of socially conscious rap as well but let's just stigmatize the entire genre as female objectification.

    When people aren't rap fans, they judge it based on what's on the radio. And what's on the radio is disproportionally about problematic attitudes towards women. Because that's what sells, I suppose.

    Or Iggy Azalea.

    But she just can't rap at all.

    Ummmmm, no.

    I listen to a LOT of rap, have for a decade. For every album there's at least 3 songs devoted primarily towards "bitches and hos."

    Hip Hop would side less on the hos and bitches side, but there's that too.

    And yes, what makes it into the mainstream as well, is mostly "bitches and hos" rap.

    I've been listening to rap for decades, I was probably thinking more along the lines of late '80s/'90s rap but I have noticed a trend towards hyper-sexualization since the late '90s but I stand by my statement that the majority of rap's subject matter is about respect.

    @Robopop Weird it didnt notify me when you quoted me.

    But I think that while there certainly is alot of sensible stuff in rap music, theres also alot of stuff about "bitches and hos", though it depends on the artist, really. If you're into more socially oriented rap music, you might get less of it, and you will hear some very sensible stuff. I guess I generalized when blaming rap music, I dont mean to say all rap and rap music promotes sexual denigration of women, but a large percentage of rappers do, more so than in other subcultures it seems.
