Coming into a fandom early and watching it become an angry clusterfuck
Being in a dormant fandom that suddenly comes alive again after a new book/movie
Don’t forget about those who come in the midst of a fandom war.
Accuracy at its best
Being in a fandom and not even knowing there’s a war going on…
all of this shit…lol
When You’re Not In The Fandom But You’re Nosy AF
When you get into a fandom only to discover it’s dead
This gets better every time I see it.
Being in a dead fandom…
Or being in such a tiny fandom that it feels like youre the only one
The accuracy hurts.
Being in a fandom that had a shit ending.
When you’ve been fangirling long enough, you’ve experienced all of the above.
Being in a fandom meant for kids.
This just gets better..
When you realize that joining the fandom has ruined you
Fandom hell in general
When you want to research everything about the fandom after you just joined
AOT ha ha
IT GETS MUCH BETTER EVERY CYCLE

And the answer is that, depending on species, the males look about the same, just with different-coloured hats.

I keep seeing people invoking “ad hominem” as if it is some sort of magic word that totally invalidates any argument.
Like… “ABRACADABRA! You’re wrong now!”
Often they don’t even understand what it means. They aren’t great at understanding when to use it. And they don’t realize that challenging their personal beliefs is not the same as randomly insulting them.
This goes for all of the “debate etiquette” rules. Every time I hear “logical fallacy” I just roll my eyes now. It can be a useful term, but lately when I see it, people are usually using it in bad faith.
Not everyone is going to make a perfect argument that follows some made up code of conduct. If the only way you can dismantle what someone says is to point out disqualifications as if they are in some sort of high school debate competition… then maybe you don’t have confidence in your own ideas and beliefs.
Honest debate can be messy and emotional and it might not always be rooted in perfect Vulcan logic. I do think it is important to try and have accurate facts to back up what you say and to consider other viewpoints before taking a solid position. But trying to discount someone’s point of view on a technicality is super dumb and people who do it are total idiots.
BOOM! AD HOMINEM’D!
Froggy why are you hanging out in Fl@t Earth subreddits. Nothing good ever comes from there.

People who sell Pokéballs in the Pokémon series are probably rich because their customers are too stupid to pick up ones they missed with.
