Maybe fandom isn't all that toxic


Recommended Posts

Recent reports have shown Russian bots active in a lot of the Star Wars backlash, representing up to 51% of the backlash against Kelly Marie Tran. Sure, 49% is still a lot, but you also have to consider the racists and horrible people who will just jump on, or do things like leave negative reviews for a book they never intended to read because it has gay characters, I think that fandom is getting a bad rap.

I think we have always been an Ouroboros, this self destructive behavior might just be more easily heightened in these modern times. To paint a super geeky image: we are the married couple that Egon is studying in Ghostbusters 2, the internet is the room we are in and the bots are the temperature.
