Is there a possibility to compress the two first options into one ?

If not, there's no way I can vote

Hey SixAngryStrings, powermetal is not gay! I admit some dress fruity, and some bands are garbage but thats to be expected from all genres. The music is great and I don't think its "gay" at all. Stick wit your opinions but, I feel power metal is a very good subgenre and it should be given the respect it deserves.

I like power metal as it is played by American-German bands.
I am not into this Rapsody stuff, although its good music. Yet its not metal. I prefer stuff like Helstar, Shadowkeep, Paragon etc...

Those three bands are pretty sweet! I like Rhapsody but not as much as those three.

I have done that already, its an old post:) But it seems like a pretty offensive adjective since it stirs all you up so much so it can't be to much of an uneffective adjective, it packs more punch then saying something like "gastly" or "vile". But I agree its over used.

Power metal is homosexual. Latex wearing men singing as high pitched as they can- does it get any worse? Only redeeming factor is occasionally good solos, but otherwise I definately don't like it.

After some deliberation I've decided not to provide witty rebuttle to this, due to the potential of it deteriorating into a flame war, which isn't pleasant.

I was merely pointing out how "gay" is being overused in posts. I don't care about its meaning, it is just an annoying word!

Time to pull a thesaurus out methinks......

<<Power metal is homosexual.>>
Homosexual music ?
Interesting concept, I never noticed that music had genitals.

<<Latex wearing men singing as high pitched as they can- does it get any worse? >>
Worse than power metal ?
... tough one ... What about grind and primitive black metal ?
Who still wears latex nowadays ?
Wake up man, we no longer live in the 80's

It's about time people figure out ways of expressing their dislikes without using 'gay'.
'gay' doesn't give any indication about what's wrong with the music, nor about the style.
Calling a genre or a band 'gay' is like telling nothing, it's of no use to anyone.
Aren't you able to build a valid argumention, with better chosen words ?

Or is solid argumentation 'gay' too ?

PS : almost forgot, I'm no power metal fan
