I know everyone else mentioned it already, but 1. skipping around the album defeats the point of this album and 2. Kendrick's not promoting misogyny, he's telling a story through the eyes of himself back in high school, before he learned what's "real" and what's bullshit.

On the other hand, I can see if you're frustrated by the constant use of "bish" (bitch), though I don't think he's aiming that at women.
Damn, what a terrible article. Not once when listening to this album 20+ times did I feel Kendrick "wants us all to say bitch." I agree, he's not usually aiming it at women and when he does, it's through the eyes of a character in the story.

The term itself is what I have an issue with, regardless of its intention being "the industry" or not. Using such a term to degrade anyone continues the trend of this phrase being seeing as ok in our society. I take issue with its use. That said, it's only featured (along with other derogatory terms) in a few songs -- and therefore, easy enough to skip while enjoying the album.
I asked you this a while back too but I'm curious if your response has changed: why then, is the word "******" censored on this website but "bitch" is not?

Because we take a very minimal approach to censorship; which I struggle with to begin with.

Fair enough, thanks for the honest answer.
