Sorry guys I just.. now I really need to vent. Because I'm reaching my limit with this shit.
I've kept quiet about this way too long so let me get this straight now.I'm getting fucking FED UP with people complaining about people complaining.
No hard personal feelings here, but when I (or anyone else) can't devote a few tweets or whatever to expressing dissapointment that YFCz will be doing the soundtrack to Moon Saga without condescending reactions along the lines of "OH, this FANDOM........" popping up everywhere, then something is definitely wrong.
I don't mind people disagreeing with me, but don't make it sound like people's frustrations are what's eating away at "this fandom".
What's eating away at it is the childish INTOLERANCE
of another's opinion or emotions that is rampant and shows in the way people are pointing fingers and whiteknighting all over the place, sometimes with people really getting hurt.
We've had to deal with less-fun comments from people outside the fandom through the years, but here we're dealing with a fandom that has been quite divided on the inside
about something for quite some time. I understand it's hard reading things about beloved artists that you'd rather not read (whether it's about YFC, Gackt's hair, Gackt's sexist slander on Twitter or whatever), and feeling the need to defend them. We need to accept that as long as Gackt's attention is divided, we as a fandom are going to be divided.
But just because Gackt has feels about things like every one does, that doesn't mean I'm not entitled to mine. It doesn't make me a lesser fan, a troll, a YFC hater (which I am not, I'm just done with them), or someone who deliberately spreads negativity.
To be frank, the way Gackt feels about YFC matters little to me. If I told that to him he would probably shrug and carry on. If I told him that I want him to spend a bit less time channeling a messiah which is making him pressed as hell right now and contribute to the soundtrack as Gáckt, he would shrug and carry on. Doesn't matter, that's what he should do because apparently that's what he wants to do.
But that doesn't make my wants and feels any less relevant and true to mé. Gackt isn't making me very happy lately, excuse me for lamenting that and wanting to go back to times when he did.
With this atmosphere of "the way of LOVE EVERYTHING or the highway/stfu" I feel limited in my freedom of expression, and that does hurt, because you are all dear to me.
