Yesterday, Paul Masvidal and Sean Reinert spoke at length for the first time about being gay. Metalheads are usually stereotyped as knucklehead neanderthals so I was curious to see what the reaction would be like from fans about this development.
Looking at the comments of our post, I was shocked to see comments like this:
I was very pleased to see some respectful comments on our site. So I thought maybe Blabbermouth's comments might be bad. This is what I found:
Well, that was a pleasant surprise. How about on MetalSucks?
That last one made me chuckle. Indeed, a pleasant and shocking surprise to see how inclusive metalheads are. The next time somebody you know calls metalheads close-minded assholes, you send them this post. Today, I am proud to be a part of the metal community.
