Homestuck Fandom: You're DISGUSTING

:bulletblue:You're sending someone anonymous death threats
:bulletblue:You've harassed, no, assaulted someone in real life
:bulletblue:This person is now too scared to leave her house because of you assholes.
:bulletblue:Just because she doesn't like homestuck.

99% of the people I have seen that like Homestuck are complete and utter shit.  It's why I cannot stand that poorly drawn, poorly written, steaming pile of shit that has the gall to call itself a web comic. It's right up there with Penny Arcade. They both have fandoms that can go fuck themselves.

Here's a newsflash- some Homestuck fans make fun of Twilight fans for being crazy when it comes to people who don't like Twilight. Guess what? Your fandom is now lumped in with them. The thing you mocked is now the thing you have become.

If you think what these shitfucks did was right, then say so right now, so I can block you and be done with it, because if you think that's OKAY, then you're a PIECE OF SHIT not worth the space you take up.

I follow so many quality people on tumblr, that just so happen to like Homestuck, and I swear, Homestuck brings out the worst in them. I've had a couple unfollow me just because I don't like it. I've never experienced anything that bad, but I've only ever heard bad things in regards to that fandom. I think there was an instance a while back where someone's costume was ripped apart on the spot at a con by Homestuck fans. And she was cosplaying someone FROM HOMESTUCK. Sickening.

Ah, gosh. I'm a homestuck fan, but many of my friends don't read it/dislike it and I'm OK with that.
People have opinions and I suppose some people in the fandom should realize that they cannot control others opinions, but they can control their reactions.

And that's what separates you from an OVERWHELMING majority of the fandom I've dealt with. Wish I could have met more people like you before I developed a major distaste for the fans.

Sadly I've seen a lot of overly obsessive homestuck fans who will kill you (metaphorically speaking) if you don't like it :/.

You seem like a nice, honest person. I'd love to KIT with you.

I'm not saying what those people did is right. In fact, it makes me sick.

"99% of the people I have seen that like Homestuck are complete and utter shit"
Excuse me?

What it says on the tin.

I have interacted with a specific number of people from the fandom. Only ONE of them that was obvious about being a fan wasn't a dick, nor did they give me shit for not liking Homestuck. The rest quickly found themselves being blocked.

Don't get your panties in a twist. I'm not making a generalization, I'm basing it off personal experience. Getting your feathers ruffled just proves my point- if it didn't apply to you, you wouldn't get mad.

If not, be a better person and tell your fandom to sit down and stop tormenting people for not liking the same thing you do.

I'm not mad. Not at you. I'm mad at the people who have done these things.

I can't tell the fandom to sit down. It's not mine, and they won't listen to me because I'm small and unimportant. But that's not going to stop people from hating me.

Your comment indicated as such, but I'm glad this wasn't the case. I know an entire fandom isn't comprised of hateful people- like the Mass Effect Fandom isn't comprised of people who hate Bioware- this journal was aimed at the people I have had the displeasure of interacting with.

And it wasn't so much a "YOU have to tell them," so much as a general "The sane fans should be letting the zealots know what they're doing is wrong." (Kind of like what the Mass Effect fandom does on forums, tumblr, etc.

Ah, I see, although I have known several people in my meager lifetime who have argued that there are no sane Homestuck fans.

*snerk* There's always at least a handful of sane fans in any given fandom. They're just hard to find.

I feel that most fans in Homestuck are sane, they just APPEAR insane to others.
Kind of like me when I go 24 hours without sleeping. My hair looks like a dead something that died, my eyes are bloodshot, but my mind still functions pretty much normally.

Wow ... I wasn't aware of this and, actually I think I'd rather not go into depth here, I'll just feel soooo bad afterwards. What's wrong with people anyway? Why can't we all be kind to each other instead of pick at each others' differences and opinions?

I have no opinion on Homestuck itself at all myself, but...

People who do terrible things like THIS to a person no matter the cause (and in this case because they insulted their fandom?! WTF IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE). But they are bad eggs, really bad eggs, and not representatives of the entire fandom as the people above said.

I do know fans of Homestuck who are friends of mine, and are good people...and they'd see this Homestuck fan's/fans' actions as horrible.

I hope there is some way for that girl to get justice. That's horrible that she has to live in such fear, and has had to go through that traumatic experience because of some asshole or assholes who have a differing opinion with her. :( My heart goes out to her, whoever she may be.

For some reason the paint throwing thing reminded me of an incident I had heard about where a Twilight fan threw acid on another girl simply because she didn't like it...

Anyway, there is no way in hell that any of this behavior should ever be acceptable in any fandom, much less society itself. How these people ever developed the idea that doing these things was a good idea is beyond me. -.-

Whatever happened to "everyone has their own opinion"? I mean, sure if it involved something that may affect someone else's or their own life (like drugs and other things I can't think of at the moment), I can understand them trying to change their minds or something, but over something as simple as liking or disliking a show or something? Sure, we're all fallible human beings, and it's part of human nature to be fallible.

But like my Dad said once: that's also what worries me.

I would never associate myself with these types of fans. People like them are one of the big reasons why so many people think Homestuck and its fanbase are shit. I'm a Homestuck fan and i happen to agree with you, despite the fact that you hate Homestuck. However, you can't generalize an entire fanbase based on its assholes. I would never threaten someone simply because they don't like Homestuck. It's a stupid thing to do and it has a retarded reason behind it. I would never judge anyone's opinion even if it's the opposite of mine. I don't think Homestuck is perfect. I don't think its fanbase is perfect. Every fanbase has its share of uneducated asshats and the Homestuck fanbase is no exception. You can hate Homestuck all you want. But, please. Don't think every single fan of the series are pricks like these douchebags. If i need to say more, tell me.

Completely different person here, and I have had the same experience as ChristineFury. I have never, ever, seen the kind of bad, bad insanity from any fandom that I have seen from Homestuck fans. Yes, I know there are Homestuck fans who aren't bad-crazy. Evidently there are a lot of them. But evidently, what they aren't willing to do is 1. stand up 2. and be VERY LOUD 3. and tell OTHER FANS AND THE CREATOR OF THE COMIC that the kind of bad-crazy shenanigans that are being pulled by fans are UNACCEPTABLE. Instead, what I have seen, over and over, is the people who aren't fans who bring up the problems get yelled at for "overgeneralizing" and "not all the fans are like that!"
If you aren't like that, cool, you're not part of the problem. But there is a big, big problem there, and that problem is THE OTHER FANS. If you want to be part of an actual solution, you--yes, you, individually--can do something about it. Stand up and tell the other fans that their behavior is unacceptable. Tell the creator to put something in the comic saying "hey guys, this is unacceptable." Telling people who are pointing out the big, obvious, crazy problems with the fandom that "not all the fans are like that!" is not helping at all.
