It's fine if you like that style but I for one actually like some melody and clarity in my vocalists. It doesn't make someone a pussy because they like their vocals clean. It just means they know how to appreciate singers who actually wanna try and don't go out there and do uniteligable screams and grunts into the mic that make them sound horrible and make them come off as if they don't know what they're doing vocally. Which in most cases I believe that to be true.
I think clean vocals completely kill "heavy" music. I'm totally fine and it's awesome for bands like Iron Maiden, Blind Guardian, etc.
But other than that? I dunno, man.
