So, this is something I've been seeing more and more being in the metal scene: guys always being "manly men" and making homophobic/sexist comments.
They'll (almost) always deny being actually homophobic/sexist, but they'll still be extremely disrespectful towards women/gays, and any time they don't like something it's "gay".
I guess what I'm asking is:
Is ridiculous, over the top, chest-beating manliness a requirement of metal?
Are all/most metalheads actually homophobic/sexist?
Am I the only one that finds this completely ridiculous and pathetic?
Barring the mod forum here constantly pretending to hit on each other (except for Bob - I never pretend with Bob ), I have absolutely NO idea what you're talking about.
