one of the whole problems with “cringe culture” is that no one can fucking figure out what it even means. people are allowed to dislike you or not want anything to do with you or your interests if they’re genuinely harmful, OR if they are uncomfortable with them! for example: someone pointing out that homestuck has racist history and andrew hussie is a piece of shit isn’t something i can rightfully be upset by, because they’re right, and they have every right to dislike that and anybody who enjoys homestuck.
something i don’t see a lot of conversation about is the acceptance that you do not need to convince people that the media that you like isnt Actually That Bad. you dont! its not your place!
