PSA: No fandom is perfect. Every fandom has idiots, jerks, people who overreact to things, trolls, and various other forms of people who are annoying. You can still be IN the fandom and not associated with them. You do NOT need to leave a fandom just because a small handful of people are doing something you don’t like, or because a few people are being jerks. Every place you go in life will have these people, and sometimes you simply cannot “leave” a place or a group just because of them. There are other ways of dealing with them besides “leaving.” Shocking as it is, you do not have to associate with these people even if you stay in the fandom. It is possible to denounce what they’re doing and still be in the group. Amazing, isn’t it?
