Music Shaming


Everybody loves music. Everyone has their own preferences though. Some people make fun of other peoples preferences. This is called music shaming.

According to the Hawks, no one likes it when they are shamed for their choices. Ian Allen, a freshman at Hardaway, said ” I don’t like it when people hate on me for liking Taylor Swift. She’s a queen.” More Hawks said that it’s unfair to criticize people’s musical preferences just because they differ from your own. It’s a problem that is rarely thought about, yet it happens often. What is the point of tearing others down for expressing interest in something they enjoy?

So my advice to you Hawks is be considerate of other people’s feelings. Just because they listen to pop or anything else that is considered “lame”, doesn’t mean you need to express your rude opinion on their choice.
