At some point in my life, I have listened to pop-punk, TDEP and ETID. I can categorically confirm I have not once had thoughts of killing seven people because their music has distorted my perceptive reality. I'm sure there are many others like me who could testify the same thing. I sure hope you have evidence which supports your assertiveness over pop-punk contributing to misogyny, such as a case study, and that you are not merely a incipient internet theorist.
what's so wrong with this? do you always have to have a scholarly approach to being offended by something or noticing a trend in a specific movement?
|The media looks to Hip Hop as a fuel to violence because the media is comprised of asinine individuals who, when devoid of ideas on what to present to the masses in the aftermath of a tragedy, immediately target a subculture for blame. Similarly, you're now doing the same thing on a website with foundations in pop-punk. Its almost as if you're attempting to be controversial.|
I'm interested to know what your take is on individuals who console in the music they listen to? Individuals who have confessed to the fact they wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for specific bands/artists, some of which fit into the genres you have specified.
he's not blaming a subculture, he's insinuating that the lyrical tendencies of a particular style of artist can, in fact, have an influence on some of its' listeners, especially in a genre that has always been marketed toward a younger and more impressionable crowd. no one is saying all these 16 year olds are gonna go kill 7 people. but if a teenager looks up to artists who constantly play victim in an ironically possessive and demanding sort of way to the female object of each song, and feels as though he/she can resonate with such misguided bitterness on a subject that many teens can relate to, it can negatively shape the way they view the opposite sex and handle relationships with them.
you can't honestly be saying you don't think it's common for pop-punk/poppy post-hardcore bands to approach break up songs in an attitude akin to "she was mine and how dare her slip out of my grasp, here are all my wildest fantasies of what should happen to her etc. etc."
