if you are part of a fandom that receives heavy criticism for bad things such as misogyny, harassment, etc
instead of complaining that "not everyone in the fandom is like that!" whenever someone criticizes it
turn against the people who are
making your fandom like that. weed them out and make it a safe space for everyone.
even just a small handful of people putting garbage like that in a fandom is too much and shouldnt be defended at all. especially if your fandom is one originally designated for young girls.
