I don't think you can generalise in this area, unless you have some rigorous scientific studies you're basing your opinion on. Otherwise you just have anecdote and opinion, which does indeed seem to be all you have, in the form of what you surmise from specific styles of music, and some thoughts about chimps. While you are entitled to your views, I find this to be an unacceptably flimsy level of evidence on which to form hard opinions about half of the world's population. The reason I said that what you describe is probably what you wish to be is because you blew off first-hand evidence which contradicts your belief. Why would you do this unless you were invested in that belief? I have more first-hand evidence for you; I have no interest in any man (or anyone) who shows a propensity to violence. Rather than signifying strength, to me, it carries rather a strong image of a knuckle dragging fool who can't think of a better way to surmount his difficulties. I am not attracted to unresourceful idiots. You may wish to brush this off as an exception to a general rule because rap music. I may wish to continue thinking that this has more to do with personal sensibilities than any fact.
