Just a quick comment to the OUAT and particularly the OQ fandom. I know that we’re dealing with big issues here, and that many of them aren’t dealt with adequately on the show. But if we could all give each other the benefit of the doubt, and speak to each other respectfully and without condescension?
So instead of assuming that everyone who wishes OQ could have a biological baby is anti-adoption and didn’t understand the point of “Mother”, could we just assume maybe they kind of wanted to watch Regina carry a baby? Can we stop thinking there’s something inherently wrong in being a little disappointed about that? Can we stop thinking there’s something wrong with people who are glad we won’t see that?
Instead of assuming people who weren’t happy with Robin these past few weeks “don’t understand complicated relationships” or “don’t want OQ to be real people” or whatever, can we recognize people’s right to dislike writing or plots or moments?
Basically, instead of insulting people personally, and sanctimoniously explaining to them why they’re delusional and dumb or whatever, can we try to keep to talking about the story, and be nice to each other?
