Why people grow out hobbies like games, anime, metal, etc after a certain age? Anonymous 5408[Reply]

Silly question out of curiosity, and no, I don't care about what others think neither I intend to stop liking what I like just because society thinks I should.

I was just wondering a few days ago. I'm 29 years old, older than most miners I believe and I still like the very same things I used to when I was a teen. None of my highschool friends, who liked the very same things as me, like it anymore. I don't think it has anything to do with time as I probably work harder than most of them and hang out just as much (even though that's not that much when compared to the average person). Also now they're into other media (mostly western Netflix TV shows) that require lots of time too.

So, I was just wondering. Are anime, games, metal and things like this actually made for kids? Why do people stop liking them after/during college. About metal I can understand, most of your angst is gone, but the others still might be fun. Do you think it might have something to do with how society sees people with the so called "manchild" hobbies?

I don't think OP is talking about all-time classics like Black Sabbath or Judas Priest when she mentioned Metal; she's clearly talking about edgy stuff.

I'd Black, Death, and Folk Metal are mostly for angry teens. Overall, anything heavier and more violent than Venom can be fun to listen sometimes, but is cringe af. I also think Power metal is for teens even If it's not that heavy and agressive because it is a very cringe genre with limited musical qualities.

I do listen to all these genres sometimes, but I don't think it's a secret that most people abandom them during college. Hell, "grow out of metal" is one of the oldest /mu/ memes.

>I don't think OP is talking about all-time classics like Black Sabbath or Judas Priest when she mentioned Metal; she's clearly talking about edgy stuff.
That still doesn't make much sense. "Edgy" is a highly arbitrary and kind of vague term that people throw at anything remotely challenging the conventional idea of music.
>I'd Black, Death, and Folk Metal are mostly for angry teens.
I don't get it. I mean it did start as a youth subculture, but the amount of grown men that are listening to these genres as of today contradicts that. I guess cannibal corpse/mayhem etc. can fall into this category, but as some people posted above, they don't even cover the wide umbrella of sub- and subsubgenres(is that a word?) that sound pretty different from each other. Metal isn't memed for having 150 specific subgenres for no reason.
>Overall, anything heavier and more violent than Venom can be fun to listen sometimes, but is cringe af. I also think Power metal is for teens even If it's not that heavy and agressive because it is a very cringe genre with limited musical qualities.
It can only be as cringe as the person who listens to it is. Which isn't uncommon, but doesn't stop music from being good. What's heavier and more violent than Venom? Electric Wizard? Windhand? Cathedral? It's pretty subjective, for example all the Venom fans I've met were the edgiest, most pretentious teens I've met, because they take their music too seriously since it's a "classic".
>I do listen to all these genres sometimes, but I don't think it's a secret that most people abandom them during college. Hell, "grow out of metal" is one of the oldest /mu/ memes.
Abandon is a strong word. I think most people are just tired, not of the music but the life in general. There's less time and energy to spend on your favorite hobbies, and since metal is very passion oriented it becomes noticeable when they're not as passionate anymore. I've seen a lot of adult or even old metalheads who didn't look like it at all because it's not about the image for them anymore.

I think there's a few kinds of people that grow out of hobbies. There's type one who are only really in the hobby to fit in and when they don't need it any more they drop it. Type two who are just depressed and can't find enjoyment from it anymore. Type three who basically burn themselves out on a certain hobby by going all out on it and basically only having that as a hobby, so as a solution they go in the extreme other direction and drop it. Finally there's type four where they've become so picky nothing new satisfies them any more and they've done the old stuff to death.

Do you think it's bad to like characters that were designed or written to be sexually or romantically appealing to moids? Where do you draw the line?

A bf I had, who was into video games much more than anime, said that he hates random fanservice of the sexual kind. Like anime girls having stupidly sexualized designs, obviously for no practical reason other than make men horny, especially if they have little personality aside from being hot, that kind of stuff made him uncomfortable.

And to contrast that, he used EVA from MGS as an example, since EVA has a perfectly logical reason to wear her jumpsuit open like that, and to act flirty like she does, plus she has more personality than just being seductive, is actually competent, and has a much larger role in the story than just "love interest" or "sidekick". So her design makes sense in-universe, and it doesn't look out-of-place at all, it's as realistic as MGS designs can be. He struggled to tell me what it was about her that didn't bother or distract him at all, but in the end these were his reasons, basically.

>I'd expect a grown ass man to be able to control where he looks lol what the fuck. That's retard behavior.
I could easily spin this and say you should be able to control when your body drops its period. You know that's a dumb statement, so based on the explanation my old boyfriend gave me, it seems like a dumb statement to treat men like their sexual desires and wants are binary and can be easily controlled like the flick of a switch.

Everything he said correlates with the globally shared religious ideals of male abstinence, that the "cure" all these groups tout varies from women covering up, to just avoiding women altogether.

That's not to say those supposed solutions aren't sexist as fuck, because the very clear answer is teaching male restraint and handling those urges in an adult manner instead of putting the blame on women, which is what my old boyfriend did, and what many men do. He didn't go around molesting women who happened to be showing skin, he simply shared how powerful the urges are when surrounded by that sort of display.

Your article is nonsensical garbage by the way.

"Fiske and colleagues asked 21 heterosexual male volunteers."

21 volunteers isn't even scratching the surface of a well researched and documented paper. That's pseudoscience, that's so bad you'd flunk university if you crafted something on that level. Also, scientists know basically nothing about the higher functions of cranial activity and how that correlates to each part of the brain, especially not back in 2009. This Fiske person is talking straight out of their ass, pretending they know how X input correlates to Y output on brain scans.

I think this is just a high libido issue rather than male exclusive. Men simply happen to be high libido 99% of the time.
It's horrible, but I was the same as a teen with both men and women and still kind of am. The situation described by your ex with that lady has happened to me with people of both sexes. Other coomer-chans may be able to relate. For what it's worth, it's a nightmare for the person experiencing the attraction as well.

Doesn't excuse rape or harassment, obviously. As an adult you learn to control yourself because you want to be respectful. But a horny person can't stop thinking horny thoughts even if they become a shut-in.

Actually listening to the other songs in this thread it seems Sofijahs music would be closer to the kind of sadgirl vibe you were getting at. Its authentic coming from a place of real suffering and sounds like its made by an individual. And it will probably sound nostalgic even if not invoking personal memories, due to it sounding like representative of simpler times
