Metal 101- The Metal GRRRL by LusoSkav Metal 101- The Metal GRRRL by LusoSkav
Since this has been coming up a lot lately and i get tired of repeating myself

-This is satire, not meant to offend in the first place, i really have no problem with any of these types of people here portrayed (except the guy in the pantera shirt cos he's a dick), i'm not judging, simply caricaturing;
-Most of these are male simply because most metalheads are male, that does not mean that a 'male' archetype cant be applied to a female metal fan.
-The female archetypes are portrayed as such because they are specifically female archetypes, non-applicable to males, and while they may seem 'insulting', they aren't meant to be any more insulting than any of the other ones, since i make fun of guys just as much as i make fun of girls.
-This is an ongoing series, and as thus, more archetypes are to come, females included, meaning that the female archetypes i come up with aren't all 'negative'

-If, after all of this you still choose to be offended and find this sexist, well, then that's beyond my grasp and you should just lower your political correctess-related sensitivity switch for a while and chill. I'm not really here to pander to or coddle those easily offended anyway.

Thank you

Bout time we slipped some tits into this sausage fest. However fret not, my good friends, for this is not the sole female archetype in this sweaty, hairy subculture.

So, after a few years passing, and many, many metal shows attended, i couldn't help but to notice the diferent archetypes and demographics in the metalhead culture that i kept coming across.
And since i never saw any kind of descriptive charts that accurately portrayed the metal subculture i so dearly know and love, i decided to do it myself!

So, based on people that i know, people that i merely saw, often or not that often, and on blunt personal experience, i began scribbling out a few, and constructed many more in my mind, which is to say, that there will be quite a few before i'm done.

Also remember this is not meant to offend. It's all harmless satire, more often than not :)

So yes. Hope you enjoy Luso's Handy Guide to Metalheads

And that's why I don't go into the mosh. It looks like fun though... Maybe we should start our own girl-only pits to avoid this problem

I might be that girl XD.
Although I do not go into the mosh pit for exactly this reason - I'd love to, but I'm afraid everyone would try to protect me, and I don't want to ruin their fun.

This girl is supposed to be a readily mockable poseur more than anything else, no?

I'm not short or skinny and I hate arch enemy, wish you'd done one about girls like me xD

I hate arch enemy too. I didn't know other people would agree with me though in a civilized manner so I kept it mostly to myself. XD

Honestly, I couldn't help mosh with girls like this. It was fun, especially at a Slayer concert.
