Perhaps it’s wrong of me to be so critical when this is a recent development in an approach to the things I love, but really?
“If you have issues with something, STOP WATCHING IT!”
Hey guess what. guess. what.
It’s possible to acknowledge problematic elements of your fandoms and their source materials and STILL ENJOY THEM AND APPRECIATE THEM AND BE PART OF THE FANNISH COMMUNITY.
Do not say we are not real fucking fans just because we see issues you don’t. I will always admire thoughtful criticism and provide it when I can, and I don’t need to be validated.
