ikr?



Rap seems very manly but that is cause it tends to be very misogynistic

Metal is very manly too but border line cheesy at times.

I would say the manliest genre is.. Rap.

Why do people make out like there's such a thing as a manly genre?

I've known a lot of music listeners through the years that really lose out because they think that a certain song or artist is not manly enough for them to listen to.
One song just for example, is Love Song by The Cure, I have a few friends that I tried to turn them on to it in the past and they wouldn't have nothing to do with it, because it sounded too unmanly.
I think a lot of closed minded people really lose out on some good music just for that very reason, its not manly enough for their persona.

Done it proudly.

Remember the era of blank cds and making your own mixes? all my friends hated mine, instead of putting music that would make me look cool i would go the other route and put some embarrassing sh*t there.

This song was in one of my retro mixes

I don't judge men on their musculinity based on their ipod.
If a song speaks to you it speaks to you, it doesn't make you less masculine to weep to a Jeff Buckley tune for exsample in private or in the company of someone else.It just means the song touched you,and the artist did their job correctly. All it says to me is you have a soul, regardless of gender and the identity associated with that gender.

I'm a woman though.
You certainly are!

I would say grabbing your schmack every five minutes while listening to rap would send signals to the rest of the world you about your masculinity more then, enjoying metal.

But I don't have a schmack so I dunno...
No you do not. At least, I hope not...

I say differently!

On another related subject, blasting Madonna out of your car might not be the wisest or most manly thing to do but consider this: I was listening to a classical compilation when Elgar's "Pomp and circumstance" came on. Cue a scramble for the volume button. I do after all live in a pretty fiercely Republican area. And the speakers were up on my windowsill.

If nobody gets that I will explain....


Conor and Zero would understand though...

I can't imagine that many people thinking "Pomp and Circumstance" is unmanly.

There definitely are genres of music that are manlier or at least perceived as more manly than other ones. For example, music that is aggressive (metal, hard rock, etc) will always be seen as manlier than pop music of softer music, even though that doesn't necessarily define your masculinity.

That being said, I did blast Lady Gaga one time while driving downtown with the windows down, and a group of chicks stared at me. I couldn't tell if they thought I was cool or if I was gay. Probably the latter, but I still got a kick out of it, though.
