I posted this on my livejournal a while back, but it's very long, so I'll just link to it: alycus - Everything I like sucks.

Simply put, I find it hard to continue liking what I like with all the criticism and controversy flying around them because of some problems they may have. Any advice?

Find a group of people who aren't arseholes so you don't have to worry about getting laughed at, like what you like, and stop reading reviews written by people who don't.

I don't like Metallica, so I'll skip over that. But for God's sake, when they go after the Simpson's and America, they've gone too far. However, from alot of sources like TIME, Newsweek, etc. it is a fair critisism of the modern US and our problems that need resolve and reform, and not outright or true hatred of America that is spreading among foreigners.

Don't point the finger at us 'foreigners', buddy. Look internally and you'll see there are more than enough people who 'hate America' enough to damage it within the United States. Worry about them.....

If you base what you personally like and dislike on what other people think, then you'll never be interested in anything as there will always be someone who disagrees.

I am a sheep, and I am on the internet. On the internet there are a lot of elitists. Being a sheep, I followed the trend, and have never regretted it since.

For me this is mostly music related, I used to like a lot of mainstream stuff, like Trivium, Slipknot and stuff, but I was taunted so much I was converted to this myself.

In criticizing, the teacher is only trying to teach.

IMHO it is a show of character to believe in something and hold true to those beliefs.

Not saying being asshole is OK but if you like something and no one else does so what? What matters is what you like. If its something bizzare and off the wall you may not have very many people admiring what you like with you but if your happy thats what matters.

March to the beat of your own drum.

Did I say all foreignors, no. I said it was spreading among people in foreign nations, which is true regardless of how you look at it. Anti American sentiment is growing in foreign nations. The people who do the most damage internally are those who love red, white and blue but hate that whole democracy thing that goes with it.
