Two Words: Punk Rock

And no, I'm not talking about "pop punk" or any of that shit.

I'm talking the "real punk" and especially the scene surrounding hardcore punk.

The punk subculture is nothing but smug pretentiousness, political sperging, constant autistic purity spirals, A-Logging anyone who has a positive or even neutral opinion of metal or prog rock, and pseudo-intellectual bullshit in general.

Seriously, fuck the punk subculture.

The problem with fandoms as a concept is that they're inherently tribalistic and myopic. A lot of people think that joining a fandom entails signing some metaphorical binding contract: you must dedicate all your time, energy, and sometimes money into this fandom and you must agree with the opinions of the trendsetters (be they the people involved in making the work the fandom is based on or the highest profile fans), and you must despise any and all of this fandom's agreed-upon boogeymen, lest you be cast out of the group. As someone who's always had fairly diverse interests, I've never really clicked with fandom culture for that reason: In the real world, no one's stopping me from being interested in, say, Pokemon and Wicked and Red Letter Media. I can explain to you the plot of Kingdom Hearts but I could also spend the same length of time explaining to you why Sunset Boulevard is the greatest film ever made or I could talk about this new eyeshadow palette I just bought. But, really, any one of those fandoms (except maybe the RLM crowd) would shoot me weird looks at best and rant about why my other interests are terrible and a waste of time and that I'm a fool or a traitor to the fandom for liking them at worst. Even quote-unquote "normal" people that I meet in real life usually have trouble understanding why my Spotify playlist simultaneously has modern R&B and classic rock on it. A lot of fandom people think literally any other thing you can spend your time on is a dangerous threat to their fandom, and aren't open to the idea of people simultaneously enjoying it and one of the fandom's nemises (I've heard this complaint a lot from people who simultaneously like some part of nerd culture and professional sports, a classic non-dichotomy people continue to insist is one. The jocks have mostly buried the hatchet with nerd culture, it's the nerds who are still hostile.) It's tough to say which fandom has this problem the most, but cartoon people (especially fans of modern Western cartoons) see literally anything that's live action as a threat to their precious animation, and anyone who prefers live action works over animation is a cultureless pleb. The worst parts of the anime/weeaboo fandom is similar in that even the worst anime is still superior to the greatest Western masterpiece. And any fandom with a strong superiority complex (*cough*Rick and Morty*cough*) get a kick out of putting down stuff they view as unintelligent.

TL;DR - don't be a dick to people with different interests than you. Pretty please.

Steven Universe. No questions asked.

Any fandom that drives a teen to attempt suicide because she drew some fatass character's arms too skinny deserves to be dumped from a plane into an active volcano. The fact that such a supposidly #woke fandom had no guilt complex about how horrifyingly ableist they were being is pretty telling. Steven and his space rock moms would never bully someone to the breaking point. But fat arms matter so I guess the end justified the means. Didn't some guy who turned out to be 27 try to find out what hospital the artist was at so he could harass her? The entire fandom is trash.

I watched the show in its early days and kind of liked it. Now I wouldn't touch it with a 50 foot pole.

Bronies. They always have, and always will be the cancer.

Hockey fans, the fanbase of teams like the Winnipeg Jets are particularly bad as they've had one decent season in a decade and legitimately act like they were favorites for that period. You also have situations like the St. Louis Blues' cup run where they were the fan favorite team until people watched them play, because they were constantly whining about being "fucked" by penalties to the media and people felt sympathy for them but after people watched them they realized 80% of the team should face suspensions or match penalties every single game.

Hot take: Bronies were never that bad. At their peak the worst that would happen would be running across a pony version of your favorite character or a pony reaction image. They flooded /co/ and other cartoon sites, but after a year or so, once they founded their own spaces, they really kept to themselves.
Props for also making active efforts to keep their porn away from children in the community.

Not saying they aren't fat, smelly, weirdos, but I think they are overhated when they mainly keep to themselves.

I'd have to say the RWBY fanbase is pretty bad. Whenever they don't like the way the show's going, they always use the whole "that's not what the dead creator wanted!" excuse. And then there's the big debate in the recent season, where if you say you like a certain character being demonized in an obvious political allegory by the writers (mainly the whole ACAB debacle), you're called a facist bootlicker, no matter what you say because most of the internet doesn't even know what fascism actually is.

Tell that propaganda to someone who didn't have to deal with their sped idiocy for 10 years.

Anime by far. Every single time some faggot starts shit on Twitter they're an anime fan. You think Steven Universe has a bad fandom? They've done some shit in the past worth criticizing (I would know, I'm part of it and cringed at every example) but they pale in comparison to an anime fan with a chip on their shoulder about Western animation. God forbid you ever say anything to the contrary about anime being the best entertainment medium.

Koreaboos definitely deserve a place in the poll. The most autistic teen girls gravitate toward K-pop.

I can’t stand that certain section of the anime fandom either. It’s been infested by woke autists, feminists, and troons. Give me the old school anime fans any day.

I'd say capeshit/Disney because it's so omnipresent and influential. I can avoid pretty much everything else in the poll pretty easily, they've all been mostly (self-)quarantined to their little dark corners of the web. You can't dodge capeshit consooming, it's metastasized into the very fabric of public life like an aggressive bone cancer. Complaining about a few thousand degenerates whacking off to cartoons in their cyber hidey holes feels pretty quaint compared to the spectre of megacorporations effectively monopolizing culture, and being applauded for it by mindless adult children.

Not to mention that a fan’s experience can only be enriched if he actually explores interests outside of the fandom. I’ve observed that the best kind of fan takes and balances ideas from multiple sources.

Michael Jackson fans, flashback to a couple of years ago when Sam Smith said he didn't like him as an artist, man was bashed all over Twitter over just a simple opinion.


On Youtube, all they do is spread lies the guy told to people and then lose their minds when someone says the truth. I wish i archived comments that they have bee saying on YouTube but I don't know if they are still around anymore.

Theres even videos exposing these autistic psychos:
