Haha, thank you! Thank god idk about that resistance tbh (I prefer not to get in too deep with the fandom). I just searched it myself and I didn’t know this blog appeared in the search engine, haha. I’m glad you find this enjoyable though. :)
when fandom adopts a headcanon and it spreads and gains traction and you just do not agree with it but it’s everywhere and you just
Not really? I mean, that hasn’t really been the main focus of why a lot of people in this fandom are annoying. It’s more along the lines of some fans being in complete denial that Loki is a villain, being way too weird/creepy/sexual with the comments on Loki/Tom, etc. Although this has lessened right now and I’m not complaining yet since Captain America is in the spotlight atm, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
please love celebrities without invading their privacy please love them as people and respect them please love them but don’t feel entitled to them or their life they are not yours they are theirs
the most aggravating fans are the ones that become huge fans of a villainous character but just can’t handle the fact that the villainous character does villainous things and instead said fans invent a million assbackwards headcanons about how the villain is TOTALLY not a villain at all and is some tragic blob where nothing is their fault even up to and including murder and genocide
i am just so baffled by this
i haven’t been paying attention to reblogs at all but i was surfing my dash and
tumblr we need to sit down and talk
Things you get to do as a fan:
Buy their music
Buy their merch
watch their music videos
request their music on the radio
cry with their selfies
laugh with their interviews
Things you don’t get to do as a fan
choose who they should date
hate on the people they date
act like you own them
be an asshole
submission: One fact that people seem to be overlooking, on both sides of this argument, is that what Loki did didn’t actually happen. It doesn’t matter if Loki killed 80 people in 2 days because it never happened. And fangirls would not be into him if he did actually destroy New York. Let people see him how they please.The issue is that fangirls are always fangirling over him in obnoxious ways which I, even though I am a Loki fangirl, find annoying. Fangirl to your friends; there’s no need to spam others.
I just heard about fans chasing Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch to a restaurant following a performance of Coriolanus. have been meaning to have a mini rant about this for a while and hearing that, now seems as good a time as any. so here goes….
I am a huge fan of Tom Hiddleston and of Benedict Cumberbatch but I would never ever dream of chasing them down the street or harassing them. For goodness sakes people, have some respect and some dignity! Do you really think any of your idols or anyone else for that matter will respect you as a person if you go wailing and screaming after them down the street???!!
And use your common sense, if an actor has just spent almost 3 hours or whatever performing live Shakespeare they are probably exhausted after and just want to go home. Yes it’s entertaining for us but please don’t forget this is their job. It’s like someone doing a days hard work and then trying to get home and being bombarded with people screaming and chasing them.
If you go to an event where there is the slightest chance of you meeting your idol/hero don’t go looking for them if they aren’t already there signing things or taking photos of their own free will. If they aren’t there then it’s pretty obvious that they probably just want to get home!!! If they are not there after/at the event meeting fans of their own free will they aren’t trying to engage you in a game of hide and seek so don’t go hunting high and low for a door they might pop out of, take the hint!!
They are not obliged to sign things or take photos with anyone and they don’t owe you anything.
Of course if you have the amazing experience of meeting someone who you are a fan of it’s difficult to not get excited and ‘fangirly’ BUT the person you are meeting is a human being just like you, them being famous does not change this, and they deserve respect, politeness and their own privacy and personal space as much as anyone else. And there is a huge difference between being a bit giggly and excitable and screaming at them and following them around. Use your brains and put yourselves in their shoes!
The only other people who act in this way are paparazzi and stalkers! Do you really want to be grouped in with people like that??
Acting in this way towards celebrities is probably very stressful and creepy for them. I know it would freak the hell out of me!!
This sort of ‘fan girl’ behaviour (and I mean the crazy crying screaming chasing fangirls) makes you come across as highly irritating,creepy,rude and intrusive and is giving us normal fans a bad name.
If you admire your idol as much as you purport to, then respect their privacy, feelings and personal space. They are human beings for goodness sakes.
Ah, I haven’t kept up lately but what exactly happened? You can rant about it here if you want.
Edit: Okay, I get what’s happening now and wow. That sucks for both Tom and Benedict, but unfortunately not surprising that some fans did that (i.e. supposedly chasing them down the street after the performance and just generally acting crazy).
