tbh geek culture as a whole makes me feel pretty nauseated because there’s a huge difference between saying “don’t apologize for being passionate about something!” and saying “you’re better than other people because they like football and partying and you like a tv show! they’re assholes!” and i don’t really think they’ve really figured that difference out yet
Repeat after me:
Just because YOU see specific subtext in a show it doesn’t mean it’s there.
Just because YOU think two characters are more than friends it doesn’t mean the writers see it that way too.
Just because YOU want something to happen in a show does not give you the right to be an asshole to the crew when you don’t get what you wished for.
