- "You're not a REAL fan....."
Ummm. Yes. They are. And fandoms are for enjoyment. Are you really telling someone they aren't enjoying it the right way? Can you actually believe that you are allowed to say this? And knowledge doesn't make you a "better" fan. My brothers probably knows more about comics then I do, but they don't really care. Just because you have knowledge doesn't make you a fan. And just because your a fan, doesn't mean you have to know about every detail of everything.
- "The people who mock girls who like comics or say they only go to watch the movies because of the lead male actors"
I'm not kidding. 45% of the people who went to watch Guardians of the Galaxy II were women. And what did they "experts" say?
They went for Chris Pratt.
Seriously? Seriously. For the record I went for a talking raccoon and epic sword fighting. And baby groot. And spaceships.
And the guys who come up to girls and start quizzing them on the comics to see if they're a "real fan."
Stop. Just stop. Nobody quizzes you on the band shirt your wearing and start asking you if you know the lead singer's favorite color or favorite subject in the second grade.
- Cat callers.
Oh, I have a wonderful idea. You know how when your bike riding and a dog runs up and starts barking at you? You're (amongst other options) supposed to take your water bottle and spray them in the face with it. You know what I say?
Next time someone catcalls you, spray them in the face with your water bottle and say "If your going to treat me like a dog, then I'm going to treat you like a dog." and then walk away.
(Note to self: Carry water bottle with me everywhere)
Secondary choice. Throw a doll or stick for them, say fetch and then tell them.
- When you have to eat GF because your allergic or intolerant and somebody thinks your just doing it because it's popular. Like wise the people who do this. Gluten Free food is DISGUSTING. Why, WHY would you do that to yourself?
Also the people that think you don't NEED to eat GF because your ONLY intolerant to it. Ha ha...no. Some people with Gluten Intolerance have worse reactions then some people who are allergic, They just react differently.
- Teenage Boys.
I don't actually HATE them, I'm just very very annoyed with them. Probably because I have encountered boys who fell under the last 4 things on this list.
I know that there are nice teenage boys somewhere. SOMEWHERE. But not here. I don't know many amazingly polite teenage boys. I think I know ONE guy who I would say was a polite helpful person. And he still annoys me.
