I’m so sick of having to say this.
When we use the word, “fandumb”, we are not referring to the entire fandom. We are referring to the select few assholes in that fandom.
We use the word “fandumb” so as to not associate the genuinely nice people with the assholes. We started using that word because people were complaining about us generalizing.
And now people are complaining about us using the word, “fandumb”.
Heads up: We’ve changed many things about the way we run our blog because our followers suggest it. We’re already being incredibly accommodating. So for people to throw that back in our face is not only rude, it’s annoying as fuck.
So we’re going to continue using the word “fandumb” because we acknowledge that not everyone in the fandom is a bad egg. And if people are going to complain about it…well there’s the door.
