Because it bears repeating  
In the broad church that is fandom, anon hate memes are the Westboro Baptists.

If you can't bring yourself to ignore them, make amusing signs, dress up as a super-hero, stage a same-sex kiss-in in response, but for the love of bunnies, don't let them get you down!

My friend Jadzialove calls me her friend from the future, alas, no use for lottery results. I've just booked my flights to Italy: TWO Wednesdays! But, alas, I lose a Monday altogether ;-)

THIS. Amen, and amen.

We would so be in the Good Fandom Church Choir (it would be one of the ones in a nice old church with good old hymns, but breaking out in the occasional soul and rock number and be fine with the gays and the atheists ;-))

As I said to you before, this is the best analogy ever.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on September 26th, 2010 05:30 pm (UTC)
I think we need to spread it. The nasties are making perfectly fab people sad, which is ridiculous. Fab people should be happy about their fabness!

I seriously hate that shit.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on September 26th, 2010 05:44 pm (UTC)
It brings them joy, and since they are clearly not going to find that in genuine friendships or satisfying sex, we should let them grab it where they can, at the same time as ignoring them because we can. Unlike the actual WBC, who are more actively loathsome (though still unlikely to pull a satisfying shag ...)

I don't think I'll ever understand how people can find such pleasure in hate memes. But... whatever... mine is not to reason why.

Or some such shite.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on September 27th, 2010 12:03 pm (UTC)
Look, I'm not going to begrudge anyone a good old whinge, but yes, anonymous hate-ins on the internet are, well, a bit sad. Having said that, I am vigorously opposed to any of my friends being brought low by them, because they are numpties, and my flistees are lovely.

That is all.

And I love you, which just goes to show we have excellent taste.

There is a bonus to my vow about not participating in wank - I miss all this shit.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on September 27th, 2010 12:06 pm (UTC)
They've just been making a few of my flistees miserable. But it's like having Tony Abbott criticise you, or being hated by the Daily Mail, one should in fact be proud that one is disagreed with by the numpties!

I have no idea who the Westboro Baptists are, but a same-sex kiss-in deserves a Halleluja, at the least. :)

OMG I just exploded in a burst of envy. I so wish I didn't know either.

Don't look them up. They're depressing as fuck.

Wow, reading about them is just so... depressing. I can't believe they did all that - esp. all the picketing at people's funerals, that's just horrible. :/
blamebramptonblamebrampton on September 27th, 2010 12:31 pm (UTC)
HUEY! It was not an invitation for you to go and look at yet another bunch of eejits!
creme_bun on September 27th, 2010 01:48 am (UTC)
I love bunnies. I love my part of fandom. I (occasionally) write happy (hoppy?) little fics. I read fluff (mostly). Ignorance CAN be bliss.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on September 27th, 2010 12:35 pm (UTC)
People who don't like bunnies are beyond me.

I love fandom, there are a few mean bits, but we should all just ignore them and they will either go away or else enjoy themselves being bitter in the corner.
Corinnaelissande on September 27th, 2010 07:12 am (UTC)
I got as far as googling the Westboro Baptists. The search results were depressing enough I didn't follow any of them. Haven't seen any hate memes either. Hope it stays that way.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on September 27th, 2010 12:37 pm (UTC)
You and hate memes are not to be thought of in the same sentence -- nor are you and the WBC. In a nice response, though, the WBC has been bringing people together in anti-protests, which is good!
