Music artists utilize language that degrades or puts down various groups in our society including women. Think about a current, popular song. What do the lyrics say about relationships, gender identities, love, and intimacy? Do you agree that the use of derogatory lyrics is free speech? Does the song use qualitative, textual, or rhetorical methods to portray their thoughts of various groups in society? Be sure to support your response with scholarly sources.
