SmartGirls submit their questions, and we post them! Here are some of the results.
We posted the following poll on SmartGirl.org:
Question: What type of musician do you listen to most?
:D, age 15
60 SmartGirls responded.
We asked SmartGirls to guess what the most popular response would be:
(a) Most SmartGirls voted that other SmartGirls listen to male and female musicians equally.
(b) However, if there was a preference, more SmartGirls thought others would listen to mostly male musicians over mostly female musicians. Were they correct?
This chart shows how SmartGirls voted in the poll:
Was the prediction correct?
(a) Yes! SmartGirls correctly predicted that Most SmartGirls listen to male and female musicians equally.
(b) However, contrary to expectations, more SmartGirls said they listen to mostly female musicians than mostly male musicians.
No SmartGirls said they don't listen to music at all.
Some SmartGirls gave the following reasons for their responses:
Because female musicians have a better voice.
I feel that I can relate to them more because I am a woman.
I just do... I have a few more female favourites than male favourites.
I'm not sexist, but they don't talk about booty this and booty that like male rappers do. It's all about sex.
To me it seems like more of the popular music is by females and that is why
they sing better
cos I just do.
They have better voices
Equal male and female musicians
I like both. Sometimes I like when they have both in a song. I really like Taylor Swift, though. But if I'm listening to the radio and a song comes on with a dude in it, I won't turn it off. I'll sing along. :D
cuz I like musicians! I love listneing to their music! =D
they are both nice music no matter a boy or a girl.
I like just about all music. I like female musicians because I can relate. But males have so much fun music, too. I like anything. ^^
I listen to songs I like. Female/male doesn't affect my taste in music.
Whoever has a nice voice, whether it's male or female, I listen to it
I believe that it is the music that calls you. I've heard male songs that were redone by female singers and vice versa, and if the music and the vocalist are good, it really doesn't matter.
I love music!
There are many different types of music I listen to ranging from punk to pop, so there is a balance of female and male musicians that I listen to.
They both have great voices. Just because I am a girl doesn't mean I don't like to listen to male singers.
I go with how my moods are!
Both male and female musicians can be equally talented.
Everyone is talented like Taylor Swift to Eminem or Lady Gaga to Justin Bieber.
I like any type of music.
Naturally, it would be gender-biased to pick either male or female because good musicians can be either.
I like all musicicans.
I love music, it makes me feel good XD !
cause I just do that
Because I can
BC I think male and female r both good singers??
I don't listen to music
When you listen to music, do you think about whether or not you're listening to a male or a female? Do you make an effort to listen to more male or female artists? Is your favorite artist male or female?
