I don't get why it should matter. It's definitely a male dominated genre though. But there are probably more female metal fans than we know off, they aren't just as vocal about it.

And I hate it when girls dress metal.

I don't understand the topic...

I'll tell you what kind of women I *do* have an opinion on... Redheads and ones with big round butts. I like em and I want em [all].

I have an opinion on females in Metal...

Lita


Doro


Pamela Moore ("Sister Mary" - Queensryche, Operation Mindcrime)


....my opinion is...hell yes! While Lita isn't the greatest of the vocal spectrum, she's earned her place. Other 2 examples have voices that hold their own with any guys out there IMO. Tons others out there as well. Ya, females are fine in Metal, even if it is a male dominated genre.

I think a lot of things *are* gender-specific although I feel most things shouldn't be. We create boundaries in our minds and let that limit us. It's a shame. It kind of bugs me that whenever a woman DOES do something noteworthy musically we just want to objectify her and talk about how "hot" she is and effectively push her into the group of talentless pretty faces.

But all in all it shouldn't really matter. People just like to make something out of nothing. I suppose it makes the day go by faster.

I don't know what contrived means, so I'll just..

Obviously I don't say anything, they can dress however they want. I'm just not the least attracted to it. Sure there are exceptions, but they are very few.
I also believe I'm the only male alive that doesn't think redheads are attractive

So you mean I created this dislike for metal dressed women and that it's not something I'm just not naturally attracted to?

I'm confused

Nope... Other way around. That a lot of "metal chicks" do it for attention rather than actually being into "the lifestyle" or whatever the hell you wanna call it.

But with the style of dress aside, men are equally diva-like. Example: Axl Rose.

Oh, well sure, some probably do. But I doubt a lot of them do it to be popular or whatever since it's not cool at all to look like a metalhead. At least not here. People are very unoriginal in how they dress here, both guys and girls.
You see the least and the most variety among girls, kinda weird.

Then again, the women/girls who DO have that style... They're often unattractive to begin with, and it all just becomes a complete fail because they pull it off really badly. In my eyes it doesn't help their case.

For some reason I feel like a lot of American women do, but I could just be a cynical douchebag. Completely reasonable assumption.

Popular culture is different where me and you live. I bet it's more accepted but at the same time not to be a metal fan in America.

Awesome contribution...

By the way... Sheila E doesn't really get as much recognition as she deserves if women in music is to be considered amazing.



Also, which Ibby model is that? I swore I didn't like any of their new X shapes, but that doesn't look too bad.

This.

And Kat Katz has all of my respect.




She is nothing but awesome. Her and Julie Christmas are rare in that they're women who don't come across as trying to capitalize on the fact that they are women who are making (heavier) music. And yeah, there's a lot of women out there who don't do that and get thrown into that category anyway and it's bullshit, but they're two that I know of whose work I ....ing love.

I can still remember reading the interview with Gene Simmons where he said "Women can't play rock & roll".

Angela Gossow is one of the few truly genuine Metal women. She's authentic all the way down to the bone.
