    Have you noticed sexism or racism in media preferences?

    I'm not talking about as a product the song is sexist or racist. I'm wondering if you have preferences that you may consider sexist or racist.

    Personally I can't stand listening to any female singer. I know many people appreciate their songs but I find it's like listening to a rusty nail groping and rubbing itself all over a tough rock. Like Miley Cirus. She's got a decent band backing her up, then she starts singing. shudder

    Wouldn't really consider Miley Cyrus as the epitome of media quality ;P

    I don't think I've ever listened to a song and realised I don't like it because it's a woman/man singing, same goes for ethnicities (though I don't really know how you can let race influence how much you like a song, unless it sounds blatantly ghetto yo). I just don't like some songs because I don't like some songs.

    Though I think I understand the not liking female vocals thing, Kieryn here on DD is a sexist faggot too and doesn't like female voices. Though I think he's toned down the fascist now.

    Re: Have you noticed sexism or racism in media preferences?

    It's not really sexist or racist, but I've been turned off from a few female singers just because of their appearance. Like "CocoRosie". I was pretty interested by their music and was going to give their album a second listen, until I found some pictures of them. It's a shitty way of going about listening to music, but they're just so gross. : (

    I've also experienced the opposite. I won't be that into a band, but the singer is a cute chick so I put in the extra effort to get into them.

    Re: Have you noticed sexism or racism in media preferences?

    I never really thought about the whole female or male vocal thing. I personally don't really care what gender the singer is, if it's a good song, I'd like it.
    I'm the same as Picto, If I don't like a song, it's because it doesn't appeal to me.

    Also, a bit off topic but my personal favourite female singer currently is the lead singer from paramore. I just love this song by them:

    I'm on the same boat as Picto. Songs that don't appeal to me, well, just don't appeal to me. Nothing to do with race or gender.

    Re: Have you noticed sexism or racism in media preferences?

    I could probably name a well-known artist of any race-gender combo (well maybe not bengali transgender or something) that I dislike and I feel is much more successful than they should be. There's obviously some sexism when it comes to attractive female singers but I really don't think it's enough of an issue to care about when you think about how long it's been going on.
