Nope. Sorry babe but your attempt at shaming me will not fly. Here’s why: for three years your friends (the same group of snarky individuals who claim to love David but mock him whenever the opportunity arises) have either laughed with or excused those who call Duchovny a potato. And never once have you or any other apologist on this hellsite for that matter have stepped forward to CALL OUT those who perpetuate unnecessary DD hate. You want to be a ddga fan in this fandom? Then yeah you gotta voice the outright bias. I have. Numerous times. For both D & G. Yes, since 2013! Stalk my blog’s archives and anons and personal posts idgaf. Please go read what i have ‘flipped my lid’ over. God, I welcome it!
Contrary to what the snarky few believe, I am a decent human being. I don’t go looking to hurt fellow fans on purpose. I don’t start cruel threads and tag them with Gillian Anderson or David Duchovny or Gillovny so that their fans will see it and be upset by it. Not my style. And I certainly do not pretend to love Gillian and then the following day mock her intelligence or her looks or the fact that she is aging like the rest of the world.
The problem with this fandom is that somehow only a small fraction of big voices have been allowed to voice their bad opinions. And we are all just supposed to follow them like fucking brainless robots. Sorry, but HELL NO. I will not comply.
Those who I call “fandom bitches” have either lost my respect or never had it. For reasons I have explained plenty of times, with my name and url attached. I never once have sent anon hate. I, at the very least, tried to speak with some who were or are mutuals, in private, when I felt there was a scrap of humanity left with which I could communicate. A few blew me off completely and returned to their shitty ways, purposely irritating/offending Duchovny fans especially. So, I stand by my judgement of these fake DD fans. They are NO friends of mine or David’s or Gillian’s. So they can stop deluding themselves.
As for Pickled Pete, the dude is a sourpuss. Plain and simple. Gillian’s choice. Fine. It’s her life. Not mine. But he has no place other than a significant other?? within our fandom. None of us actually know much about him. David, on the other hand, is 1 of a 2 co-starship in this fandom. The X-Files fandom. Not The Crown fandom. To constantly criticize Duchovny for things he said in 1998 is a bitch move & a majority of you out there know it. The man, like any other person, has grown significantly since his late 20s and early 30s. So has Gillian. Neither is a god, free from flaws and various phases in their lives. Shit happens. They have discussed this publicly. How filming 14 hr days, all week/year round, for years, nonstop, took it’s toll on their psyche & on their relationships. And yet here we are, 20 some odd years later, STILL dredging up old quotes from 1998 and calling David a potato in retaliation like WTF?? Who are these so-called fans anyway? They are haters, that’s what. Hating on D since the 90s and holding grudges against him for whatever reason.
Want to know my crime? I have called PM Pickled Pete like a handful of times. Do I accuse him of abuse. No. Do I criticize his writing. No. Do I write nasty things and tag him on social media. No.
Anyway, this is boring now. David Duchovny is a beautiful, sentimental man who has given his fans and costars and family nothing but love and ❤
Apples and oranges. There’s no comparison. David deserves a helluv a lot more apologies and respect than some dude that’s virtually unknown to any phile!
