  1. The thing that I have always wondered about is why men who have feminine mannerisms are sometimes considered "sissies".
  2. I have noticed that a lot of things that are considered girly are seen as something negative if men do it. If my girl-friends and I talk sweetly to each other and give each other endearing compliments, or cry easily or something like that, then this seems to be received much more positively than if guys do it. And if I wear some pink glittery shirt or something like that on it then that is seen as "cute", whereas it seems to be viewed as negative if a man does that.
  3. I have noticed that I have mostly got positive reactions from boys when they have found out that I like metal music. There have been a handful of times when I have felt like they have wanted me to "prove" that I am a serious fan, but I have been a fan for only a few months so far, so I haven't had enough time to become very familiar with everything. 😋 Other than that, they seem very supportive of my interest in it, and they apparently think that it is "cool" when I try to headbang a bit and move my hair around.
  4. I have heard a few guys say that metal music is considered more of an "aggressive" genre, and thus usually appeals more to guys since guys are believed to have a more aggressive nature than girls. I have noticed a few signs of that on various occasions, like for example of two guys get into an argument then there is often this feeling that they could get into a physical fight at any moment (and sometimes do), whereas if girls get into an argument then it is a lot more verbal. I have also noticed that my female friends and I will often spend a lot of time on having intimate discussions about our romantic relationships or on how we feel and things like that, where guys seem to be more closed about that and focusing their attention more outward and being more rough with each other (in a playful way, but still).
  5. Yes, I also feel that it is probably more accepted for men to enjoy metal, since it matches the biological/cultural characteristics of men. The typical gender characteristics tend to be that men are tough, unmoved, aggressive and commanding, whereas women are sweet and tender, non-confrontational and meek, so metal is probably more associated with men for that reason. I would say that I personally have a very typical feminine personality in that regard, so people often seem surprised when they find out that I have learned to enjoy metal.
  6. Yeah, I mean The Beatles had a lot of stuff lying around for a very long time before they released it, like for example the tracks "The One After 909" and "When I'm 64", so it makes sense that Metallica may have also had some songs "on hold" for some time, for similar reasons.
  7. This is something that I have always been curious about; I know that Cliff Burton wrote parts of the track "To Live Is To Die", however did he know about any of the other songs after Master Of Puppets apart from that? I feel like some of the songs after that album could have been "in the works" shortly before he died, like maybe some riffs that they had played around with or something like that.
  8. There used to be one very successful artist in Sweden who was really popular throughout his life until 1997, who was called Ted Gärdestad, and he wrote a lot of really beautiful melodies (his brother Kenneth Gärdestad wrote the lyrics), and this is one of my favourite songs with him so far - it always makes a huge impact on me:
  9. It was in small steps, but pretty recently. I had a boyfriend a year ago who listened to a lot of that type of music, and he would sometimes tell me that it was called "thrash" and all that, but we didn't talk about it too much. We don't date anymore, but I started thinking about this genre more and more, since I had secretly found it interesting. However, I didn't tell anyone about it at first, since I felt a bit awkward about being seemingly the only girl who was interested in this genre; I guess it is a little bit like how guys might hesitate to tell people if they like boy bands, but for me it was the other way round, if you know what I mean, haha - it didn't seem "sweet" and "cutesy" enough, I guess. I have however learned that metal music is more popular among girls than I used to think, and this forum is one more stepping stone for me to get more and more familiar with it. ^-^ I have noticed that guys are generally surprised in a positive way when I tell them that I like this genre; their reactions are usually like "wow, you are a fan of that?" with a smile, and start asking me how I like it with great interest, and that is very sweet of them.
  10. Thank you, blaccckdoommmmfan. 🤗 Ah yes, I have heard the Metallica songs from their first 3 albums, and they have been really good. I am still getting used to it, but I feel good about it. It is a very different experience for me, in a lot of ways; partly because of my personality, and partly because of the kind of music that my friends and I have been into. My personality is about as far away as one can get from the attitude of thrash metal music - I am really really meek and non-confrontational, pretty quiet, and moved to tears really easily, and my friends and I have mostly been fans of slow ballads and boy bands. So I am very fascinated by thrash metal, since it is so very different from all that. It was a bit scary in the beginning, but now it is mostly energetic. ^-^
  11. Ah yes, that sounds very logical. I think that in my case it is largely because thrash metal is like the complete opposite of my personality; I have always been extremely meek and non-confrontational, and also quite a bit shy, so thrash metal feels like a burst of energy in that way, if that makes sense, haha. It is quite funny when people do figure out that I enjoy this genre, since I tend to come off as this delicate girl who probably listen exclusively to slow ballads and boy bands or something of that nature. And while I do enjoy those kinds of bands, I have also found a new passion in thrash metal. ^-^ I am not really bothered by my core personality, except a bit when I know that I should be more assertive, so I am not really trying to use thrash metal to "change" myself in that way or anything - but it is an uplifting new experience. ^-^
  12. That is nice to know. ^-^ I am not sure why I have been "concerned" about whether there are a lot of female fans or not, but for some reason it felt important in some way - at least when it comes to the fact that I seem to be alone with this passion among my friends. But it is great to have a lot of fellow fans on this forum. ^-^
  13. I have been watching a few old Mr. Bean episodes lately - the ones from between 1990-1995. He is really funny.
  14. Ah yeah, you are right.^-^ I have also noticed that my friends and I tend to have much more personal conversations than the guys that I know how hang out, like long talks about our feelings and concerns and giving each other advice about boyfriends and things like that. And also calling each other "cute" and saying "love you" to each other. I don't typically see guys act that way, even though they are of course usually nice to each other - but they often seem more rough and tough with each other. So this might make them more drawn to thrash metal on average.
  15. For me, my newfound passion for thrash metal has a lot to do with a discovery of a new type of mood and attitude. I am the kind of person who has always been considered really meek and shy, and I never get the least bit angry at anyone if it isn't something really really serious, and I am very easily moved to tears by things. So thrash metal feels quite liberating in a way, since it has a lot of energy and intensity to it.
