Just found this in my referrer logs and LOLed myself half to death. Apparently some Canadian girl started a column “inspired” by my “PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: Girls Don’t Like Metal!” post on Metal Sucks a while back:
The inspiration for this column came from the title of an article published on Metalsucks in October of 2011: “Public Service Announcement: Girls Do Not Like Metal!” The article, written by Sergeant D of the infamous Stuff You Will Hate site and intended as a piece of satire, posited the idea that women don’t actually enjoy heavy metal, but rather pretend to in order to attract male attention. While it was framed as a piece of satire, the tone of the article contained a snarling meanness that made me wonder if this opinion is something that the author genuinely believes (not to mention the slut-shaming). But even more disturbing than the article were the comments that followed. It was clear that many of the readers actually shared the (debatable) satirical opinion of the article in a very real and distressing way.
I love it that she thinks my “girls don’t like metal” post was satire!!
