A rantI've noticed this on the internet for a while, but only in the past 3 years or so has it really exploded.More Like This
Why do people online feel the need to be "marginalized" or "oppressed"? There's this overwhelming current of "I'm special, I'm different than the rest, pay attention to me." This is present in fandoms, blogging, and social media in general. It's like being disadvantaged has suddenly become a thing that people want. It makes no sense to me.
For example, "bronies". Don't get me wrong, I think MLP is great, and I'm a pretty big fan. But I don't call myself a "brony". I don't wrap my identity up in the fact that I watch a cute show. I'm not "breaking societal norms" or "being oppressed by others" because I watch a damn show. It doesn't define me. I've seen bronies online talk about "coming out" to their family and friends about being a brony, and equating it to the struggles of LGBT people's "coming out". This is extremely offensive, whiny, and reeks of privilege.
