Seriously, which is it? by Chrysalislover Seriously, which is it? by Chrysalislover
PLEASE read before commenting

This is just something I often like to ask people. They say that they hate something (often something that is popular), but with that being said, I tend to question if they truely hate/dislike what it is they're talking about, or if their anger is geared more towards its fans? I bet there are a lot of things out there that wouldn't get anywhere near as much criticism (and may even be praised for its actual quality), if not for the fact that some members of the fanbase (not even saying most/a lot of them) take things WAY too seriously.

Also, keep in mind that I did NOT make this stamp to encourage hating on anyone just because they're a fan of something. Even if they're a rabid fan. I also don't mind if people truely do "hate" (though I find that a pretty strong word) something, as long as they have logical and respectful reasons for why.

Feel free to fave, or to leave any sort of comments :)

I think it's really unfair to hate a fan for liking something that person hates. What if the fan turns out to be a super nice and decent person? I've been disliked simply for being a fan of certain things and it's not a good feeling :( Oh well. Sometimes the best thing to do, hard as it maybe, is to just ignore people who are too full of hate that they generalize an entire fandom. Those type of people aren't worth the time or energy ^^ :heart: You like what you like.

Oh, yes. There is no problem with being a fan. This stamp is just about how some people criticize certain fandoms, when I feel their hate isn't actually directed towards the fandom itself, but towards the small few fans who can maybe be annoying. Most fans, though, are perfectly fine people :)

Oh now I see: Sorry I tend to misread things ^^; But anywho. I think you're absolutely right. I think some people, just don't like a few of the insane fans out there. I've met my fair share of good fans and bad fans of multiple fandoms so I don't hate any fandom or fan really. I only dislike the really loud, obnoxiously vocal ones but that goes to haters also.

This makes sooo much sense!! Take Hetalia for example; I love watching it to death but some people refuse to watch it because they don't like the fans or they don't like the plot without watching even an episode. So I agree with this stamp alot!!

nice stamp
theres very few things i hate, but the things i do hate i honestly do not like. ponies are a good example. i never liked MLP even when i was a wee bugger but i dont hate the fans of them, like you and a few other DA friends.

Thanks :)

And, that's understandable. As I said here, I don't really have a problem if someone really does dislike/hate (again, though, I tend to find that word awfully strong for something like a simple fandom of sorts) something, especially if they actually gave it a fair shot and/or can give good reasons for WHY they dislike/hate it.
