Star Wars fandom is becoming a toxic cesspool that is eating itself alive. There are a few islands of serenity perched upon the vile waters, but mostly it’s the putrid undulating ocean of filth that gets all the attention, not the small tranquil plots of positivity.
Love ’em or hate ’em they are just movies. I think a lot of the problems stem from the sheer amount of new Star Wars websites and blogs that sprung up when the news was announced that Disney was starting to make more movies. After that there are a hundred different reasons for these sites to become toxic sludge factories but if it all is over not liking a movie that’s pretty damn sad.
Another sad fact is that once you start the toxicity and you get a positive response to your negativity, it’s hard to turn back. You keep being more and more negative and to get even more of a response you have to one-up yourself and lay it down thicker and thicker. Damn, its starting to sound like the Darkside a little bit.
Anyway, Chris and I take another look at the negativity plaguing the universe of Star Wars fandom. We even go as far to compare how fans of another popular science fiction franchise seem to handle change better. Hope you enjoy!
Oh, and again I screwed up the auto….ugh.
