We are not the members of a TV show cast, a movie series cast, or band members. Although we become caught up in their real lives, real romances, fictional stories, ships, fandoms . . . we have no right to expect them to conduct their personal and business lives in a way that suits us.
Over the last, oh, five years at least, I’ve seen a lot of anger directed at celebrities who don’t do what fans want them to do. I’ve seen celebs harassed off social media. I’ve seen threats of physical violence towards fellow fans with differing opinions. I’ve been threatened. I’ve seen threats from “fans” towards the adored celeb not behaving as the “fans” wish. Hello, what the absolute fuck is wrong with you that you think a real human being should have to live his or her life in a way that suits your dippy fantasies? Hey, that person you broke up with two years ago? That pisses me the fuck off. I liked watching the two of you make eyes at each other. Get back together or I’ll stalk you.
Now you think I should be committed, right? WELL DON’T BEHAVE IN THE WAY I JUST DESCRIBED IF YOU DON’T WANT PEOPLE THINKING THE SAME OF YOU.
DON’T tell people they have to stay in dead relationships because it turns you on (what the fuck is wrong with you?)
DON’T tell writers that they have to force your favorite characters into a relationship that doesn’t flow naturally with the damn story I swear to god I will kill a character before I bow to that pressure.
DON’T threaten other fans who disagree with you, don’t be a hashtag troll, don’t seek out what makes you angry because it’s gonna get you locked up. Think I’m kidding? Fuck up one more time.
If you spend your time looking for what upsets you, you need help. No, the entire world is not wrong. You are wrong. You are too involved in a fictional world. Speaking of fiction, writing pornographic fanfic that forces your OTP to be together forever is one thing, but if they’re real people, get the hell out of their lives and into a psychiatrist’s office.
Stop it and GROW UP. I don’t care if you’re 60, that’s even worse, GROW UP.
Go see a mental health professional. No one owes you anything
