Ooph, I really love Godzilla, I'm kind of excited for the movie coming out next year, yet kinda dreading it. It's a relief for Godzilla fans after being movie-less for more than ten years. But, that means that it may gain a bigger Godzilla audience, which you may know every large fan-base has it's loonies. I don't want to see Gigan face-fucking Baragon.
I don't hate popular things. I just happen to "not like" stuff that everyone else seem to adore and worship like their lives depend on it. The reason for this is that since literally everyone else goes gaga over it, it's suddenly isn't so appealing to me. I don't hate it. I just... don't care as much as the rest. And why the fuck would anyone hate their own fandom? That's just stupid.
Hating something JUST because it's popular is the perogative of an asshole. Hating something that is popular because you genuinely think it's a load of crap is just fine. The reverse is also true. Loving something popular because you genuinely like it and think it has merit is just fine. Loving something JUST because it's popular is the hallmark of the shallow and soulless.
