On one hand I’m just glad that XMFC/DoFP isn’t as big as SuperWhoLock because we’d never hear the end of how liking it/getting something out of it makes us awful people. It’s astoundingly racist, sexist, and I have to use trigger warnings for two of the people involved in making it. So yeah, I don’t think we have any room to talk bad about those other fandoms.
On the other hand, it does make me wonder if I am in fact an asshole after all. Not that I think any of you are assholes, I assume you handle the contradiction somehow.
I refuse to feel bad about liking something because assholes had a hand in making it, especially if that something is a giant enterprise that would have worked out just fine without those two people. I refuse to feel bad about still liking Sherlock, even though I screamed at the screen in rage for two solid minutes because of 3x01. I’m not going to sit in a white room, watching paint dry, until the One True Respectable Work of Fiction descends from heaven to bathe us in its pure radiance. And frankly anyone who wants to yell at me for finding something to enjoy in a piece of entertainment I happened upon can sit on a cactus.
