inside my head...

Stuff that leaks out occasionally and infects my world


Sometimes I feel so lonely in this fandom. I like everything about Who. Both old and new. And even though the companions have their flaws and some stay out their welcome, I love each and every one of them for their strengths. Same goes with the Doctor and his eleven incarnations. All I see is hate and passive aggressiveness in this fandom [and so many others.] Why can’t we just agree to let opinions and ideas be, why must one side trash another side just to lift up their own soapbox?

As fans, sometimes we need to remember that the things we like don’t define our worth as people. So there’s no need to defend them from every single criticism or pretend they are perfect. Really loving something means seeing it as it really is, not as you wish it were. You can still be a good fan while acknowledging the problematic elements of the things you love. In fact, that’s the only way to be a good fan of problematic things.
