So, this is something I've been seeing more and more being in the metal scene: guys always being "manly men" and making homophobic/sexist comments. They'll (almost) always deny being actually homophobic/sexist, but they'll still be extremely disrespectful towards women/gays, and any time they don't like something it's "gay". I guess what I'm asking is: Is ridiculous, over the top, chest-beating manliness a requirement of metal? Are all/most metalheads actually homophobic/sexist? Am I the only one that finds this completely ridiculous and pathetic?
