This isn’t unique to TW, obviously. I’ve pruned my follows and participation in the SPN fandom to the things that aren’t fractious. That means I’ve had to unfollow some BNFs, but it’s for the best. We have the right to be fans AND enjoy the show.
You are completely correct. The same thing has been happening in SPN too, though for me to a lesser degree. I have unfollowed people in both, some BNFs (or at least in their mind’s.) But I will say, I feel uninspired in that fandom as well. I failed to do anything for masquerade outside of the banners. I neglected to sign up for artpaperscissor, which I was actually looking forward to. I have no inspiration for RBB or the Xmas exchange. It’s gotten to the point where I haven’t even picked up a pencil or stylus in nearly a month all because the joy and inspiration I found in my fandoms has been sucked dry. And I have a hard time even spending time on Twitter because of all the “Carver blows,” and “Oh God, The 200th episode Atrocity,” bullshit, so I find myself increasingly spending time with my kindle or playstation. :( It makes me really sad, but fandom is just NOT the thing for me lately.
I acknowledge Teen Wolf Season 4 has issues, some major, but I’m still watching. I acknowledge that it isn’t nearly as good as it used to be and Jeff has made very questionable decisions, but yet, I’m still watching. I’m still a fan.
But why am I not really participating in fandom lately? Because of the fandom, not because of the show. The fandom has become destructive, over analytical, quick to judge, quick to anger, quick to accuse people and the show of very serious topics, it takes pride in vitriolically ripping every aspect or character to shreds, and generally speaking is just not a positive place to be.
If I wanted to be in a hate watch fandom, I’d join Glee fandom. If I wanted to over analyze and debate very serious matters and actually go about changing the world, I’d turn on CSPAN and write my Congressmen or join an advocacy group.
What I refuse to do is label yet another fan a racist/sexist/homophobe just because they don’t like the same ship as I do, and not take the time to hear out as to why they don’t like that character/ship. What I refuse to do is point out every single inconsistency in the show in real time, and then casually disregard when I ‘m wrong when it is actually addressed on the show, all because I think I am ~superior and Jeff is a hack, or that this character is a bad friend/person all because I have made an earlier judgement and refuse to change my opinion on the matter because “I AM RIGHT GDI!” What I refuse to do is keep my opinions to myself and a low profile in fear of the Borg mentality fandom has developed attacking me for liking/not liking what they deem as acceptable/unacceptable. My list of what I refuse to do to be known, ‘popular,’ or hell to even feel like I can even engage in this fandom is large, and frankly isn’t worth submersion into the negativity I have to endure to be a part of it.
So yeah, I still watch. I still enjoy. I just don’t talk about it as much anymore. I don’t feel like sharing anything I draw anymore. I don’t feel like participating anymore.
Blame the show and Jeff all you want, but realize that some of us blame you, The Fandom, far more for what you’ve become.
look kiddos: due to tumblr’s half-baked tagging system (where only so many tags count towards actually categorizing a given post), tags on this site have evolved into an acceptable form of dispensing and sharing commentary, but that is not the case on other websites — ESPECIALLY AO3. tags on AO3 are intended to be functional, not conversational, and not only do excessive paragraphs of tags like these look patently ridiculous and sell your work short, they also make life harder for the site’s tag wranglers who volunteer their time to keep the tags organized so people can actually find your fic.
in short, knock it off.
This is something I would never, ever say in almost any other circumstance, but if you tag your fic on AO3 as if you were tagging a tumblr post, YOU ARE DOING FANDOM WRONG.
FYI guys this makes me actual facts bonkers and I’m not even involved with AO3 beyond posting there. You are actively driving off readers when you do it. If you won’t do it for yourself, do it for your poor fanfic, which we are ignoring because of its tags.
As most of you probably know, someone somewhere dumped a deluge of purported nude photographs of a number of female celebrities online yesterday. The victims include the likes of Kate Upton, Victoria Justice, Ariana Grande, Kirsten Dunst, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Krysten Ritter, Yvonne Strahovski, and Teresa Palmer. But the focal point for this story has been Hunger Games/American Hustle actress Jennifer Lawrence, since the Oscar winning actress is perhaps the most famous actress on the planet right now. Without going into sordid details ( Justice and Grande have claimed their respective photos are fake, others have confirmed they are real), I’d like to make two very specific points. Ms. Lawrence and the other victims have absolutely nothing to apologize for in terms of the contents of the photos or the nature in which they were leaked. The story itself should not be addressed as if it were a scandal, but rather what it is: A sex crime involving theft of personal property and the exploitation of the female body.
Outlets as mainstream as People and CNN are referring to the photo leak as a “scandal.” All due respect, it’s not a scandal. The actresses and musicians involved did nothing immoral or legally wrong by choosing to take nude pictures of themselves and put them on their personal cell phones. You may argue, without any intended malice, that it may be unwise in this day-and-age to put nude pictures of yourself on a cell phone which can be act and/or stolen. But without discounting that statement, the issue is that these women have the absolute right and privilege to put whatever they want on their cell phones with the expectation that said contents will remain private or exclusive to whomever is permitted to see them just like their male peers. The burden of moral guilt is on the people who stole said property and on those who chose to consume said stolen property for titillation and/or sexual gratification.
