Surely hip-hop would win out? Freddie Mercury, Paul Masvidal, Rob Halford....

Edit: I don't believe I've ever heard the word 'faggot' in a metal song...

From what I remember from some thrash metal documentary I watched awhile back, there was lots of racism and homophobia in metal back in the '80s.

Things have changed a lot since then.

Sounds about right.

This is a bit off-topic, but this sounds a lot like Jew hate. All of my life I have never understood why the Holocaust happened. From what I have gathered over time, it sounds to me like people got jealous of Jews making more money than them and decided to level the playing field like a bunch of children. Can't think of a better reason than that, but honestly I haven't really researched it that much.

Lots of this comes from watching Family Guy; that's all I've got...

There are a lot of very stupid people who have been taught by their stupid parents to hate gays.

I myself hate it when any "minority" gets offended by every little thing then calls people "racist" or "homophobe" (<--- they can't even say it right), but I don't hate the "minority" itself. I am not alone and stupid people should listen to us.

Sounds about right.

From what I remember, that type of stuff was prevalent in the punk community too, until some groups took a stand and literally fought the homophobes and racists out of the venues.

They use it as an insult to non-gays, but when Frank ocean came out, the industry was actually very supportive.

Everyone? I'm looking at wikipedia, and it looks like there's at least ten central members plus about fifty occasional members.

Queen aren't really metal, idk who Paul Masvidal is, Rob Halford had to stay closeted for years 'cuz the band feared people's reactions. & there's gay guys in hip hop, i.e. Frank Ocean who got loads of support when he came out

in my experience, the metal circles locally are unsafe for queer people. i assume it's the same way most places.

Heavy Metal subculture isn't a homogenous subculture. For that matter neither is the subculture surrounding rap and hip hop, which makes these arguments even less productive of anything interesting and more redundant than they were in the first place.
