So after just recently buying my first violin, and posting a picture of her on facebook for all my friends to see because im so proud.....a friend of mine commented on it and said that playing violin seemed girly for me! Well this got me pretty upset! Sure i listen to a lot of metal music, mainly Thrash metal, a lot of Blues music, but i also listen to orchestral music and Irish folk music, classical music and so on....I was about ready to have a verbal fight on my hands. I let it go though and explained it to him in a pretty stern manner that in no way is the violin girly, that music is just what i chose to listen to and only effect it has on me is what concert tickets i buy, and he can chose to support me in this part of my life, and be an actual friend, or he can keep his useless comments to himself and not talk to me about this again.
Does it really matter what type of music people listen to? Has anyone else had a similar thing happen to them?
