Goat cheese haters?

Hi everyone, first time poster. I was just curious about how many members find goat cheese (or maybe another food) completely, extremely, ridiculously horrible.

I am a big fan of all kinds of food and cheeses. I made a mistake of assuming all cheese is heavenly and I have sampled goat cheese two times in my life. Both times, I was overwhelmed by disgust, if I didn't know better I would swear it is poison - I am not exaggerating! I can't even swallow it and couldn't even explain how I think it tastes because it was like overwhelming bitterness until I spit it out (the aftertaste was almost as horrible, for 5-10 minutes). I found this very very odd, as I said before I am not a picky eater at all. It was so bad, and not a normal "I don't like that food" reaction that I wonder if this happens to anyone else. I have heard about a gene that makes some people feel this way about cilantro (a genetic thing), except they can tell it tastes like soap. I was just curious, thanks for reading!
