The internal bully-culture among fans


Recommended Posts

This will be my last post here, I just want to write this first. 
I think that there is a very unhealthy and aggressive culture going on within this “army”, and I am not talking about “fans” “harassing” people in the conservatorship, I am talking internally towards other fans or supporters of Britney’s human rights. 
I have seen this several times now, how “stans” silence and bully those that have opinions they don’t, simply. Instagram profiles who block and delete comments that are not rude, just normal argumentation that adults are supposed to be able to handle.

The actual witch hunt on people who have the“wrong ideas” about someone or something, or witch hunt towards people like Wade Robson or Sam Lutfi. While they are often yelling at and insulting people for criticising Lance Bass, Jamie Lynne etc, calling it “harassment”, “hate”, “going after” etc, the same people can write the most vile and disgusting things about Lutfi and Robson. It is so hypocritical. And I just can’t with this anti democratic culture, where you are supposed to be quiet and just obey some self proclaimed gurus or people who have been given the “power” of being a moderator for example (and then just abuse it af).

I think this kind of mentality showing up in our fandom is more just an indication of the larger cultural climate we have now in the USA, maybe even globally. People no longer agree-to-disagree; anybody who has an opinion different than ones own is now the enemy. It’s sad and I think the people who pull the strings actually want it that way - divide and conquer. 
It’s important to choose positivity, to know when to make an exit where you’re not welcome, and to find a group of people who share your own views - here, and out in the world. Some people will always see you as the enemy no matter who you are, but you don’t have to get down and dirty with them.

100% agree with you. In this time and age, there is no grey area, it's either black or white.
