It’s only depressing if it’s 2021 and you still give a shit.
I gave up on the Lily drama about January of 2018, and tried not to look back since. Meanwhile, the E4B made it their mission to cover her every public lapse in judgment like it was the freaking Super Bowl: Down with Molestia, November Knockdown
, Guard Break, Kaboom, #RespectTheArtist… the fact that I even know what these stupid things are just prove how easily I let myself get invested in it. And certainly didn’t help that Jojo wrote about this shit like it was some kinda Warhammer fanfic.
As for Lily herself… look, it was 2016/17, and I was very much an “SJW” by the metrics that this thread qualifies that term (although I think people call them “wokescolds” snow). I had put a lot of stock in Lily as one of the only voices on Brony/Cartoon YouTube that was willing to point out parts of the community that were gatekeeping people out that didn’t think about sexism or homophobia that much. I got invested in the drama because I wanted to stand up for her.
But as victims of her abuse were speaking out, it became clear to me that she was very much beyond repair. This whole whole entire controversy (from Down With Moslestia to maybe the ToonKritic drama in early 2018) was not worth participating in, and I hate that it took some overdramatic dinguses on Tumblr to make me realize that.
