You know what’s kind of dumb? When fans get all uppity about being associated with the ruder members of their fandoms. Then you get them spewing things like:
“Don’t blame EVERYONE in this fandom for that, gosh” “Not everyone in this fandom is like that, stop being rude!”
Just saying guys, what you’re basically doing is disavowing the bad part of your fandom; you’re slipping the assholes “get out of jail free” cards, then complaining when others call you out for letting these people act like complete dickfucks. It may be the douchebags sullying your fandoms reputation, but it doesn’t help your guys’ case when you do nothing to stop them.
Believe me, I’ve met more than a few good fans in my time here. But you guys need to stop getting uppity when people associate you with the assholes, and you need to start telling said assholes to stop being such gigantic assholes.
It’d probably make the general tumblr community view fandoms in a more positive light.
yeah sansa, i mean you only watched your father get beheaded in front of you, were physically and emotionally abused for years and were forced to marry someone you didn’t want to, you’ve had it so easy stop complaining!
Supernatural fandom: sent death threats to wife of Jensen Ackles. hoped for a miscarriage. harassed Misha Collins about Destiel to the point where he closed his panel at a con. constantly harass the cast members about Destiel. admit that they like to hurt themselves and express their desire in suicide due to the show. also queerfetishizing. Cumberbatch fandom: physically assaults him during greetings. someone stalked his house and live tweeted the entire thing. “ship” him with a coworker with ferocity. also queer fetishizing. (there’s more but i can’t list them all down) Hiddleston fandom suffers from similar traits. (no idea who Groban is) Doctor Who fandom: hijacks posts. elitism throughout the fandom. bullying of other members of the fandom who display dislike for characters. (mostly internal problems, i suppose, but i don’t know all that much about them)
get your head out of your ass. every fucking fandom has it’s problems. deal with them, don’t try to hide them.
you have got to be fucking shitting me. i have no words for how insensitive and utterly disrespectful this thing is. thank you for belittling a mental disorder for your fandom’s needs. i hope the notes was worth it for you.
