    Actually, I disagree. I think every man is a misogynist of sorts whether we like to admit it or not. I mean, we are pretty much bred in a culture where men are treated differently from birth. How is it possible to not be, on some level, misogynist?

    The danger, I think, comes when people take this and twist it to actually mean something "in the real world". I think there are healthy ways to express your misogyny, racism, bigotry etc...and there are unhealthy ways to express this. Music, I would argue, is perhaps one of the most healthy ways to do this.

    Pretending like the world is a perfect place, like we don't have biases etc, is more detrimental than a song about "bitches and hoes" from some rapper. imo..

    I definitely don't agree with this. Glorifying something like misogyny is not the same as acknowledging it exists, either. You can acknowledge gritty reality without portraying it as good, healthy, acceptable, etc.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    I guess I'll go with INFP, since he has that tertiary-Si groundedness to him.
