I'm addicted to Studio Ghibli films, anime, video games, Disney and all things nerd.
As a member of many, many fandoms I see a whole lot of hate about them. This is especially true on Tumblr, where everyone has entitlement problems because, “Hey, look! I’ve made my own blog and the entire blog is dedicated to telling everyone else to fuck off!” Yeah, okay, you’re not a fan. And that’s totally fine. However, your opinion probably either has nothing to do with the actual genre/show/comic/book/person (“well, the fans are weird and I don’t want people to think I’m like them”) or you’re saying it’s bad because of either false issues or issues that don’t actually matter to the fans. I am not saying you are not entitled to your opinion. I’m saying that your target audience (the fans) doesn’t give a shit.
As an example: Fangirl that I am, I never got into Doctor Who. I have watched it, I just couldn’t get into it. Thus, you could even go so far as to say that I don’t like it. That said, I don’t come on Tumblr and write rants about how it’s bad and why. It’s pointless. Doctor Who is entertainment and those who are entertained by it don’t really give a rat’s ass if I’m bothered by some sort of minor little nuance. It makes absolutely no difference to them that I have a differing opinion on something they love. You need to figure this out, haters, and you need to deal with it.
I like what I like. You like what you like. You just need to figure out that’s how the world works and spend more time enjoying what you like and less time bashing things you don’t like.
