I do not subscribe to the concept of guilty pleasures. If I like something, I’m man enough to admit it. Or rather, I have the confidence to stand by my choices because this is obviously not gender specific.
When I’m hungover I crave a BigMac. Despite me not being positive in any way by the low end fastfood options, like McDonald’s, my brain is wired to crave this somewhat sorry excuse for a burger or even meal. But I’m not afraid to admit it, because that’s who I am.
I also listen to all kinds of weird music, from metal, via gypsy punk, to hardcore electronic music. If I like it, I’ll listen to it whenever it suits the mood I’m in. So if you try to heckle me for listening to anything from Coldplay to Skrillex - your efforts are completely wasted on me.
In the end it comes to two major things as I see it. First of all, we humans like to put people in boxes - this girl or guy, is this type, so and so - including our expectations to ourselves. And while it probably applies in some respects, very few are that stereotypic - we’re all the sum of a lifetime of adverse personal and cultural impressions.
So no matter if I don’t understand if you’re a brony or emo, I will respect it and I won’t assume that your life doesn’t entail other interesting aspects. And that brings me to the second major point: If you like whatever you’re into - and as long as it doesn’t harm any unwilling - do NOT give a fuck what anyone else thinks. Own it. Do NOT accept other people’s bullshit. And have fun!
