im in my 20s and i get creeped out by some of the adults in these discourses. seeing other adults basically groom 13/14/15 year olds into getting into toxic discourse is so gross. i see it with antis and also in @ce d/scourse too. then the kids get harassed and attacked and the adults dont even have the common sense to tell these kids to turn their ask boxes off or to just step away. they just add fuel to the fire instead
bless your fucking soul my dude. but this is literally what hurts me the most because they know that these people would believe anything that they say. when you join a fandom, you want to make friends. some people can’t even find friends irl, this is their escape. why do you think so many adult antis love to bring up safe spaces? because they can manipulate anyone in their own private space.
they were there before, some people just don’t learn from the mistake but learn from the process.
its this fucked up cycle. i say “i hope things change” even though shit like this will always exist.
