So I think I’m going to leave tumblr for a while. Maybe just a day or two, maybe longer. I really just can’t deal with all this hate.
And it’s not because it’s hate. It’s because of how those of you sending it have directed it. You’ve made it about me and why I’m such a horrible person rather than your disagreement with my ideas. When I form an opinion, I base it on what I see, what I here, and - shockingly - what I’ve experienced. Those of you telling me how stupid and horrible I am are essentially telling me that what’s happened to me isn’t as important as what’s happened to you.
A few days ago, I made some stupid Glee related post. Like a stupid little rant that I just wanted to get off my chest and didn’t actually expect anyone to read. And naturally people freaked the fuck out. And guess what? I listened, I read your comments, and I conceded some of your points. But apparently that wasn’t good enough. I still got tons of messages - anonymous and not - about how I’m such a fucked up person who condones date rape and is blinded by my ships. And I really can’t deal with that.
Yeah, there were some people like accio-fandom, who basically just messaged me to let me know not to worry because the fandom is so fucking insane, and others, like longlivethekumcanoe and a few anons, who were incredibly mature in letting me know their opinions on the situation, you know, like decent human beings. But a lot of people just wanted to tell me how horrible I was for saying what I said, even after I amended my original views.
And I see this happening all the time. I guess that’s why I’m basically tagging all the ships and everything in the fandom. It’s ridiculous that someone can post an opinion, which - by its very definition - is not right or wrong, and suddenly that person is awful. Really, I’m ashamed to be part of this fandom sometimes.
So I’m going to leave tumblr for a few days while this cools off, because I really can’t deal with all this misguided hate. Hate on my opinions all you want, I wouldn’t call them opinions if I didn’t expect people to disagree. But don’t let that mean that I’m a horrible person because, call me biased, but I don’t think I am.
Sorry this is so long, but I wanted it out there for people to read, not hidden beneath a cut.
