I don’t get what’s wrong with hipsters? I mean I’m not one myself but every fandom seems to have a vendetta against them for no other reason besides “They don’t post fandom stuff”.

I mean what’s so bad about them? All they do is post poetry and photos and artsy things and stuff, what’s wrong with that?

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.

Just sayin’.

A Conceptual Look at the Difference Between Hate and Critique
  • Critique
  • Person A:Hey, do you want this cheese pizza?
  • Person B:Nah, cheese pizza is a bit too plain for me, I like a little more with my pizzas.
  • Person A:Oh, okay.
  • Hate
  • Person A:Hey, do you want this cheese pizza?
  • Person B:OMFG NO. CHEESE SUCKS. GROSS. PEPPERONI ALL THE WAY MOTHERFUCKERS. *knocks all the pizza over*
  • Person A:Dude what the fuck is your problem?
  • Person B:What? I can have opinions. FREE SPEECH.
Being a Fan of Something Does Not Mean That
  • you have to love it unconditionally
  • you cannot say that there are things wrong with it
  • you have to quantify your love for it
  • you cannot live without it
  • your entire existence revolves around it
  • you have to be in a fandom

if you like something, you like it. if you love something, you love it.
thassit.
you ain’t gotta prove anything to anyone.

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.

Sensible Reasons to Dislike a Character

  • They were written with the intention of you disliking them
  • They are underdeveloped
  • Idk, you just don’t like them…?  Like maybe they’re an idiot or a Mary Sue/Gary Stu or just plain annoying?  Your choice, bro.

Nonsensical Reasons to Dislike a Character

  • THEY ARE FEMALE
  • THEY ARE MALE
  • They get in the way of your ship
  • THEY ARE A PoC
  • THEY ARE WHITE
  • THEY ARE HETEROSEXUAL
  • THEY ARE QUEER
  • They have emotions and cry when they are sad

The rain beats down hard on my back as I dejectedly stand outside the fandom headquarters.  They’ve kicked me out.  I’m an injustice to the fandom community.

“IT’S TRUE!”  I sob into the suffocating darkness.  "I’VE ONLY WATCHED THE MOVIES!“  

There is no reply.  Far off in the distance, I hear a cry of "can u not” but I ignore it, too preoccupied with my own fate.
