Last week I talked about The Wrong Kind of Fan. This is a concept I’ve been thinking about for quite some time but one that, when I bring it up, people tend to call me an elitist. Or asshole.
People call me an asshole a lot.
So let me explain what I’m talking about when I talk about The Wrong Kind of Fan. The Wrong Kind of Fan takes the fun out of the thing you love. The Wrong Kind of Fan brings really negative attention to the thing you love. The Wrong Kind of Fan is a walking bundle of stereotypes many, many people have worked hard to negate and The Wrong Kind of Fan is really fucking obnoxious. The Wrong Kind of Fan is these things, but taken to such an extreme that you’re left wondering if you should stay involved with that thing you love so very much.
The Wrong Kind of Fan comes in many shapes and many sizes, and over the coming days, we’re gonna take a look at some of them.
And I’m probably going to come across like an asshole in the process.
