what is your opinion on songs with misogynistic lyrics (e.g. "baby got back", "smack my bitch up", "bitches ain't shit", and stuff like that.) do you think they're a real big problem, or just songs that shouldn't be taken seriously?

Misogyny is always a problem.

However, I am uncomfortable with the fact that when misogyny is pointed out in lyrics, I pretty much ONLY hear Black artists getting called out. That’s not good feminism. That’s racism.

Also, I think it’s ok to dance to songs that have problematic lyrics. I mean lord knows I have blasted some “You Belong with Me” in the car, but I’m not exactly about that song’s message or the video’s portrayal of the virgin/whore dynamic.
