Hallo poppets

Beyond the obvious examples of Manowar and Judas Priest, I love the blatant homoerotic elements in metal, a genre which is supposed to be so masculine.

Most bands full of burly, muscular men.
Most audiences full of sweaty, long-haired men - who are either shirtless or clad in leather.
IE Morbid Angel - all their early 90s posters featured them in open leather vests, staring into the distance wistfully, ignoring the women at their feet.

Also, Freud would have a lot to say about hoardes of men staring at one man frantically working his fingers up and down fretboards - IE any lead guitarist ever!

Please, share your thoughts on this! Highlight any other homoerotic examples of metal!

I can't think of any homerotic examples except, for the metal forum's very own Magero
I want to go as far to the edge without going over. Out on the edge, you can see all kinds of different things.
#3
Well ah, Freud said alot of things...many which I don't agree on.

But yes many things in Metal are, ahem, "homoerotic", but so is King Kong and alot of other things if you really want to find it.

Like singers putting their mouths very close to a suspicious looking object...

Haha I have that Morbid Angel poster. And plus, Id expect the tuff-guys to be more closet homo than power metallers. Surely all that machismo is just a facade.

LOL Do you have it proudly displayed over your bed like my mate's brother had? I couldn't agree more my little possum - it's a well known fact that with each level of machismo you reach, your secret longing for erect penis increases exponentially.

For example, Rob Flynn!

This is clearly because you have been illegally downloading peoples music too much/watching too much porn and have picked up a load of adware. Unlucky!

You're losing interest because you're simply not gay enough. Which leads me to believe you aren't cut out for metal.

Ok, Ok, semi-serious post now. I honestly think your view has been slightly skewed - as far as confusing masculine or as we call it around these parts MANLY with closet homo tendencies. There IS a difference, only reason to think otherwise would be either:
A) You're taking the piss.
OR
B) You are insecure about such things/topics.

So, let us all know if you're taking the piss or are serious reading too much into all this homoerotic business .
#31
I don't think he mean closet tendencies, I think it's more unrealized ones, if that makes a lick of sense.

Well, yes that makes sense, but I'm just covering all grounds here, still saying that masculine = homoerotic is only in the eyes of the beholder. (no IMO there, just fact).

LOL what ae you basing that fact on? It is your opinion, you are not omniscient and you cannot declare your opinions as fact.

That's probably a better description. Still, "ick."

I guess, as someone mentioned elsewhere, the nude blasphemy pics of Havohej and the video of them masturbating on the Bible and then slurping up the semen could be seen as homoerotic.

But I love posting them on Christian boards.

One metal band used GOATSE as its cover. Does anyone remember who that was?

Uh, he was stating it's in the "eye of the beholder", meaning up to opinion...he wasn't stating his own opinion, just saying it's up to whoever's looking at the masculinity to decide for themself whether they want to interpret it as homoeroticism.

^I didn't know there was a strand of literary critical theory known as "queer theory".

And I can say that because
masculine or "MANLY" =/= homo
I can see how someone can connect the two, but to say that anything symbolizing such things are automatically gay/queer/homoerotic is just someones view, not mine.

But, feel free to educate me on this "queer theory" because I have no clue what it's all about. [seriously, go for it]
(especially since I listen to Metal for the Music, not to get all homoerotic )

it wasnt his Opinion its clearly the facts.

The Definition of the word Masculinity
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masculinity

Clearly has nothing to do with Homoeroticism.

its Your Opinion that Masculinity = Homoeroticism (Which is Not stated in the definition). therefor, it is your opinion that manliness is Homoerotic (Gay!).

maybe you like male bashing? who knows.
Quote by Karl Sanders

metal is kinda like the sport of wrestling, etc. it may seem gay to those who are looking at it that way from the outside, but its always been almost more of a celebration of manhood than it has anything else. the moshpit for example, where everyone smashes into each other and releases their aggression yet still has fun because they're not there to purposely fuck someone up (or they shouldn't be).

And TS the metal concerts u've been describing, isn't just cause its a metal concert but it must be because of a vibe you give off or something, where gay men think you want to be touched.

for example: i don't think any man who considers himself straight has ever been sexually imagining another man at a metal concert. I know I haven't. If you are... you're not straight, and its not the concert you're at, its you that has different likes.

by the way, that comedian was hilarious.
