I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been threatened with physical violence simply because I expressed enjoyment of a new TV show, movie, series, comic book, etc.

I’m so sick of being afraid to tell people “I love _____” because I fear the repercussions that might come from people who believe their favorite fandom is theirs and theirs alone. The fastest way for a fandom to stagnate is to try and dictate who can or can’t enjoy it.

Life is short. Like what you like.

Bunny Hat = Bob's Burgers
Fez Hat = Doctor Who (or Fez)
T-shirt = Steven Universe
Candy Colored Horn = Homestuck
Scarf = Ravenclaws from Harry Potter
Red Shoe = Wizard of Oz (or Pacific Rim)
Green Boot = Super Mario Bros 3
Magnifying Glass = Sherlock

Sadly, I've been threatened with physical violence on a few occasions for drawing Character Y from X fandom in a way that he/she/they didn't like. And I'm not even popular or well known by any means.

That's right Tommy-boy, never give up even if there's some hardcore fans trying to beat the s**t out of you.

I count myself very lucky that I have never encountered anyone with the delusion that they "own" a fandom...
