|02:07 pm - Respect = Love|
Okay, the incomparable dodger_winslow has come up with a very creative approach to something she, and I, and many other fans, have become increasingly aware of and troubled by: the lack of respect that is often shown in fandom to both the actors and to other fen.
Her response, specifically targeted to the Supernatural fandom (but quite applicable to all) can be seen in the icon on this post.
Her thoughts on the subject, and on this project of promoting respect within fandom, can be found on her journal, here. Please, go and read it.
Feel free to snag and use this icon, with or without credit to dodger_winslow. DON'T use it to start wank, or associate it with any one specific issue, please. DO use it to show your support of the actors, and your desire to respect them (and others in fandom) as the real people that they are.
Current Mood: pleased

I honestly shudder to think what kind of whacked-out wank's going on in the SPN fandom.
As in - what kind of disrespect are we talking about here?
But... wait. I don't wanna know.
People are crazy. This I know all too well. Lookit some of the crap we had to deal with in the old days of the VS, hm?
But hey, I can totally get behind respecting the actors. I can also totally get behind the actors. *whistles*

Re: Thankee, hon
Heh. You can go hunting for the wank if you want to; I tried briefly and then decided it wasn't worth how upset I was going to get. It's hard to make dodger_winslow
this up-in-arms, so I *know* it got bad.
But hey! She used all that anger to come up with an awesome idea!
I'm curious as to what specifically prompted this icon. 'Cause having seen and been on the receiving end of the lack of courtesy and respect in fandom . . . yeah, that's one of the reasons I got fed up with all of it.
After reading through some of dodger_winslow's comments and responses, I get the general idea.
And it makes me very sad for so, so many reasons.
And yeah, maybe I *should* dust off "Drawing the Line" and get it out there. Somehow.
Yeah. It's similar to some of the stories you've told me about TS fandom, back in the day.
And oh yes please, do dust off "Drawing the Line"! We'll figure out some way to get it out where people can read it...
