After becoming quite familiar with the social psychology of ingroups/outgroups, subordinate/minority groups and dominant/majority groups, I have come to identify with other minority/subordinate groups. This is actually a common response to being a member of a minority group.
I went with a friend and saw Straight Outta Compton. I remember this one line in a press conference in the movie where I think it was Icecube who said that the music was reflective of the lifestyles and everyday occurrences that they lived amongst in Compton, CA.
I was like yes it totally is. I relate with aggressive music, mostly the really dark ■■■■ like Marilyn Manson, Slipknot, Korn, Avenged Sevenfold, Breaking Benjamin, Stone Sour, I could name more, but mostly very aggressive music often about psychosis. Yes, these artists had psychotic experiences with drugs and withdrawals. I mean seriously, Slipknot’s bassist died of an opiate overdose, Korn’s lead guitarist was knee deep in meth and found Jesus, still came back to drop a sick album with the band, it is pretty obvious.
Here is what I am listening to right now, for example.
This is a music video taking place in a mental hospital (more like an old school asylum) and it’s about psychosis. Like it is explicitly about being psychotic.
I find myself identifying with other minority groups because we people with scz are like what 0.7% of the global population. I just respect the ■■■■ out of saying it how it is, however it is. That applies to everyone.
