So basically, earlier today, I reblogged something Thommy related that one of my other followers had posted. For anyone who didn’t read it, I said (although I’m paraphrasing here) that I pity Thommy shippers who honestly think it’s going to become canon. As a result, I got a number of messages from an anon who felt that what I said was condescending, and instead of leaving it alone, I kept replying, trying to explain myself again and again.
Look, regardless of the fact that I disagreed with this person’s views, I had a good think about what I said, and now, I wish I hadn’t said those things. You know the whole intent versus impact idea? The fact is, it doesn’t matter what I was trying to say. What matters is that that anon was right about my attitude. My replies were condescending and rude, because I outright said that that person - and other people like them - were deluded and irrational because of the way they felt. Yes, it is wrong to tell other people how to feel. It’s especially mean when it’s about a topic that might seem trivial to you, but actually means a lot to another person.
So this goes out to that anon in particular. You don’t have to forgive me, but I’d like you to know that I’m sorry. I take full responsibility for my rudeness, and there’s no excuse for it. I won’t do it again.
Anonymous said: "I don't see Thommy as slash." Um? UM? Do you even know what slash means, other anon? I'm so sorry you have to deal with these people. I was once apart of the Thomas fandom before it was overthrown by the Thommy apocalypse (and I'm sorry I'm using such harsh terms, but I'm still bitter about it.) But just so you know, I agree with you 100%. They're known to attack and get very emotional about people who don't agree with them.
THANK YOU, Anon 2! You are my new best friend.
