The idea that JD is the meany of the show and fans’ feelings were hurt by him voicing valid frustrations is bullshit, to me.
He had legitimate concerns for legitimate reasons, and rather than support the guy who’s done more for TCGS than almost anyone, some fans—people who didn’t even understand why he was frustrated—decided their own feelings were more important than his.
I’m sorry, but fuck that. If anything is wrong with the show (which I do not think there is) it’s certain fans thinking the show owes them something.
Forget for a moment that JD didn’t actually disrespect us at all… but If you want respect, you have to show it first, and you don’t do that by making demands of the people and show you’re supposed to be admiring.
We fans, as a whole, need to stop trying to insinuate ourselves into the fabric of TCGS so much and stop trying to appropriate everything else. There’s a big difference between being invested and feeling entitled.
For the record, I do agree with everything JD said.
justdreamingaway, Dammit now I feel a little bad for making this.
