Abstract

The story of gendered issues in metal is a hot topic of analysis and is often brought up when discussing heavy metal or its culture at all. The treatment and representation of women remains a popular topic in metal studies, especially with the increased visibility and participation of women in academia. It is our opinion that the study of gender in metal remains an important topic, and continued study should be encouraged. It is for those reasons we would like to address the antiquated methodology and opinions of Deena Weinstein in regard to gender in this article, in lieu of politely, and quietly, ignoring them. We believe that some of her claims are harmful to the current direction the metal music studies field is taking, and as feminist academic scholars, we implore the field to hold Weinstein to the same standards as any other academic. This article focuses on the problematic aspects of Weinstein discussing gender and utilizes modernized gender and heavy metal music methodology and theories.
