Is Azealia Banks Right That Eminem Only Picks Fights With Women?

Azealia Banks is a Twitter troll. Let’s just get that out of the way. And, given the lack of sales of her debut album Broke With Expensive Tastes, not a particularly successful one.
One of her favorite targets of social media venom is Eminem. In her latest attack against Shady, she points out that for all of his reputation as “a diss god” the only folks he seems to be slaying are women or harmless pop cultural figures like Moby.
Banks isn’t entirely correct; Em’s gotten into it with Ja Rule, Benzino (which she acknowledges), Cage, Everlast, Limp Biscuit and Canibus.
Nevertheless, that’s not exactly a murder’s row of talent, especially considering Em’s stature. Does Banks have a point about Shady only picking fights he can win? Or can her opinions be dismissed as just more trolling?
