So, when people ask me why I won’t shut up about racism in fandom and let people enjoy themselves, I’m going to think back on this moment.
I log onto the Internet, eating my favorite pasta and looking forward to Elementary, when bam, racist bullshit shows up as a reply to one of my posts. This shit happens at least once a day, and that’s a good day. Yet no one seems to give a damn about my enjoyment of fandom. Folks want to talk about fandom being an escape, when I can’t even safely escape there?
