people on here make fun of nerds for screeching about and gatekeeping pop culture shit but then also turn around and do the *lip pinch* "dont ever say anything bad about my favorite Franchise" thing a lot...

you can rebrand it as "let's all be positive and uplift art we like yay it's way more valuable to let people enjoy things haters are just jealous" all you want but at the end of the day it still just sounds liek rabid uncritical pop culture consumption to me

i mean yeah it's not "impressive" to dislike something but it's weirdly defensive to think anyone Not Liking a VERY POPULAR thing you like is some kind of posturing lol
