Word around all the news agencies is that Jay-Z has decided to no longer use the word “bitch” in his music. Inspired by the birth of his daughter Blue Ivy, it seems that the rapper has come to the conclusion that using hateful language towards women in his lyrics isn’t a great idea.

WENN broke the story that the new father wrote the following poem about his change of heart.

“Before I got in the game, made a change, and got rich/I didn’t think hard about using the word bitch/I rapped, I flipped it, I sold it, I lived it/Now with my daughter in this world I curse those that give it.”

He continues, “No man will degrade her, or call her name. I’m so focused on your future, the degradation has passed. I wish you wealth, health and insight. Forever young you may pass. Blue Ivy Carter, my angel.”

Misogynistic language remains a staple in our society’s vocabulary. Often using words like “bitch” and “hoes” in songs or featuring scantily clad gyrating women in music videos, rap artists especially have been criticized for their lack of respect for women. We hope this epiphany from Jay-Z will inspire other rappers to rethink the way women are represented in music.

    It’s always the same with the pampered celebrity class: “As long as I’m making money, I can do whatever I want…until it effects me personally.” Jay-Z doesn’t give a crap about any one else’s kids but is suddenly protective of his own!? They’re all infinitely self-centered.

Use is harm and that’s of any animal, in any way.

To say that one is a “veggie-vegan” is to make the nonsensical claim that one is a non-vegan-vegan.
