Either way, I've never heard of homophobia being associated with Metal.
He has.

And maybe it's just because I'm from Texas, but the old breed of metal seemed to have a bit of homophobia in it. You don't see it as much these days, what with the internet and the youth of today bringing new blood into metal.

I've heard it associated with rap and county but not any of other kind of music I can think of.

I don't know.
I'm from Toronto, so... everyone is pretty accepting in general. I knew kids who were out in middle school and never once got bullied. I've never really known or seen homophobia at all; except for like, when my sister watches Glee.

We all know that that isn't true, or at least isn't correlative.

I think he means that a lot of it stems from religion. A person doesn't have to religious to be homophobic though. I definitely know a lot of atheists who are very homophobic.

It's mostly just ignorance

The concept of being attracted to your own gender is of no concern to me. Do what you will.

Most of the gays i meet are really nice and helpful, honestly. There are some, though, that could probably use some therapy.

Religion is more of a niche of ignorance, and in many ways religion and ignorance are very different.

EDIT: People already mentioned it, but you don't have to be religious to be homophobic. You do have to be ignorant though, and I have never seen/heard anything/anyone which could disprove this.

Well without the millennial homophobia caused solely by religion we wouldn't have anywhere near the problem we currently do have.

Edit: Saying that homophobia is based purely on ignorance is being far too lenient on homophobes. Ignorance is nothing wrong; homophobia requires ignorance, sociopathy, desire for control over others, etc etc. It's not a question of ignorance, not solely.

You know, there's a pretty good reason why Rob Halford stayed in the closet until 1998. Part of it had to do with his bandmates wanting to protect the image of the band, apparently.

Oh, and homophobia requires someone to be a complete insecure pussy, did I mention that?

good point

metal is pretty much the worst genre for homophobia, & that's on top of the misogyny & other shitty stuff that's already there
