Let me start with saying that I like some Eminem songs, because some are pretty good...but he has crossed a line. I've recently read an article that shocked me and disturbed me, because it showed me a dark side to my favorite rapper.

Okay, so I've assumed you've read the article. If you haven't, a) Read it or b) Leave. Not to be rude, but the following won't make any sense unless you've read the article:
Is it just me, or was that a teensy bit disturbing to you? I mean c'mon, raping his mom
his wife? 10 grown men taking his little sister's
virginity, and treating it as if it was nothing? Not. Cool.
Sure, hopefully he would never actually do these things (I hope), but even impying it is disturbing. How about the thousands--No, MILLIONS probably--of men hearing his music? If Eminem and the media treat this as nothing, what stops them from treating it as if it's nothing? How about the disrespect for women and gay people he shows? Again, not. Cool.
Remember, this is just my opinion, and yes some of his songs is good...but when the bad songs outrank the good ones, then it's time to step up
