Amazing how people can get away with targeting someone and ultimately making them feel unwelcome and it’s totally okay.
It really makes me feel bad about the fandom in general and I’d love to find another place other than here but the show and the fandom are two very different things. It confuses fantasy and reality. This mix of negativity with the positive things that the show projects is unhealthy and shows that only specific people are welcome in life. Being weeded out and dictated by corrupt authority to intimidate a show of power is the reality. To encourage others along with this behavior solves nothing and just ends in chaos.
It makes me feel that this site only accepts specific people, not just anyone. Most would leave it, but what about someone like me who tries and tries to find good in it when at every corner there is disappointment?
I suppose forum sites with healthy engagement and welcoming everyone and supporting those who struggle in a positive and non-condescending way are unheard of, at least to me.
So with that said, I’m going to try to put every negative aspect of the troubling and concerning things on this site in the back of my mind, and try to focus more on what the show actually is, living in a fantasy.
I’ll try not to put any effort to talk about what concerns I have for this community, but my willingness and resilience to such issues are really hard for someone like me to dismiss and those that don’t understand my motive will continue to fight against me out of spite.
