Prejudice against people who listen to metal, rock, etc..

Please view my introduction voice thread

People who don’t like metal, rock, or other genres similar to these like I do have many opinions on other people. Some people do say things about people who listen to music that they don’t particularly like. I do think there is a prejudice against people who do listen to it. To some people it can be mean and hurtful and in most cases untrue.
Some opinions I found are that people who listen to this type of music are emo( if you don't know it is what some people refer to others who listen to thins music), scene( this is also what some people refer to other who listen to this music), depressed, antisocial, are mad at the world, hate everything, and self harm. Also, what was said is everyone who listens to this has long black hair, only wears black, and has a bunch of tattoos and piercings. People also assume that they are atheists, worship the devil, and are going to hell. This is not true. Yes, there are people who listen to this music that do self harm, are depressed, and all the other things I have stated, but it is not everyone. I listen to this music a lot and I have never harmed myself, I am not mad at the world, and I don’t hate everything. Some people do have tattoos and piercings, but not everyone does. I don’t have any. Also, not everyone worships the devil and is not atheist, like I’m Catholic. It is said that if you listen to it you have a bad music taste. I don’t think it is true. Music is made for people to enjoy. If you don’t like a certain type of music then just don’t listen to it.  
To me it is a prejudice because people are stereotyping others. Most of the things people say about these people is not true and unfair. People should just leave their opinions to themselves and let people be!.

    I think this is a great post and is very true. Is this true with all genres of music or just heavy metal and rock? Do people think prejudiced thoughts about people who listen to classical, pop, or country? Great job!

    1. I think there is a prejudice with any kind of music not just the type I wrote about. I don't think any prejudiced thoughts about other people even though I don't listen to the music they do. Everybody is different I'm not going to put anybody down about it.

  2. Nice post. I agree with what you are saying and that people shouldn't get based on what kind of music that they listen to.

  3. Hello!
    I think all the points you covered are very true. Your statements are right to the point. I can relate to your ideas. I love classical music. You might think I would be "Geek" like but I'm not. What made you right about this? Is this prejudice active where you live?

  4. Yeah your post is true, that people shouldn't judge by what genre of music you listen to. Everyone is unique and likes different type of music.- Casey P/SGGS
