silly kneejerk peoples...

Dear people freaking out about #boycottstarwars,

The only reason it trended on Twitter was because you were using the tag when you were freaking out about it. There were not nearly as many racists (or trolls. Pretty sure a lot of them were trolls) as you seem to think there were.

Sincerely,
A bemused fangirl

Making their own trouble, are they ~?

Yup. And even more dumb, there are actual news sources writing articles, and the actors weighing in, all with the same assumption that every single tweet causing the trend is a racist asshole.

Exactly how I feel. In fact, I literally did when it started popping up in my FB feed.

(Tinged with a bit of that bitterness I feel over fandom's descent into madness)

Oh for the days when the major fighting was over, say, what parts of the EU were really canon ...

although those wars were entertaining *twelve*

Exactly! And that is what fandom should be about. Getting butthurt about canons, characters, uniform colors, and the scientific feasibility of giant bipedal robots. :D Not this constantly talking about why every member of (insert sex/orientation/race/class/etc) is terrible.

Alas, somewhere along the way fandom decided en masse that it could get a better and sweeter hit of delicious smug nerdrage by screaming like madmen about supposed "social justice".

Which is especially aggravating because all that dross drowns out actual legit social justice subjects and issues *facepalms more*
