Fandom issues

Fandom has a lot of issues.

Take, for instance, ars_belli who fetishizes Nazis, a hobby which literally gets people killed at worst and is inhumanly amoral and unempathic at best.

Meanwhile, on the 'why?' scale, fandom's got people sending you death threats for shipping John/Sherlock because 'that's pedophilic' because John is shorter.

There is something seriously wrong with fandom's priorities and it and the world increasingly frustrates me.
