ichiman replied to your post: Thoughts on the recent Tolkien Elitism…

I am new to Marvel Comics and I was welcomed with a big FUCK YOU FANGIRLS on various blogs u_u I guess that most elitists get nuts whenever their fandoms gets new fans because of movies and mainstream series etc. But a lot of fans are also nice

A lot of us were greeted with that. “Oh, you only came here because [character] is good-looking! You’re not a true fan because you haven’t read all [solve for x] comics!”

Or, some of my favorites from other fandoms:

Every barrel has its bad apples. You’re going to be met with elitist assholes in any fandom you enter. You just have to give them the finger and remember that the only thing that constitutes whether you can be a fan or not is whether or not you have a love for whatever the topic of the fandom is.
