Or maybe a Romanian guy (see how it’s easy to dog-whistle politically without being overt?) might not want to create vast generalisations about the quality of US music (which you called “garbage”, remember?) being caused by women being mentally ill and on drugs.

Yes. You used several words in your comments that are only used the way you did in alt-right contexts. I’m not going to debate whether using “triggered” instead of “annoyed” isn’t a political act because that’s playing into your trolling.

Criticising ideological **** in a forum is indeed political, I’m for one not pretending it’s not. I’m happy for my comments to be taken down alongside yours because I own that fact.

You literally said that new music was “garbage” because of women being depressed and drugged up with “hallucinogens”. You brought this up, don’t play coy.

Obviously yes! Jeez it’s like Grunge “I hate myself and I want to die”, Nu Metal “I flirt with suicide, sometimes kill the pain”, and Emo “love is watching someone die” weren’t the some of the biggest forms of rock music for the last three decades?

Honestly I would even agree that there is a relationship between the type of music and the mental health of people. What was sexist about your comment is to assume it was garbage because of the gender. What about all the sad guys, is their music and music taste garbage?
