I love that you can be a fan of a show but not necessarily be ‘in’ the fandom. I’m a fan of BBC Sherlock but I’m not at all in the fandom.
yeah i’ve tried to really “fandomize” myself and a lot of people in fandoms are not people who have great ideology so….can’t really be around them. nothing wrong with individuals that are in fandoms, it’s just that some people ruin the whole idea of fandoms for me
the only irrational phobias that exist are phobias against the human person. if you’re afraid of small garden gnomes i don’t really care, i don’t need to know why. but if you’re a homophobe, islamaphobe, transphobe, etc. you are irrational, you are discriminatory, and you need to grow up.
