No. Being a fan does not mean you have to like everything or must worship their every step. If you like what they put out, good for you, but it certainly does not give you a right to belittle other fans for disagreeing. Criticizing does not mean one is any less of a fan. It simply means one is being objective and has personal standards. Fandom needs less childish attitudes like this confession and simply learn how to agree to disagree. Stop trying to censor the so-call ‘negativity’ that is merely different opinion. Quit being butthurt just because someone is criticizing your favorite member(s). Accept that not everyone’s gonna like Ohno’s choreography, Sho’s rap, Aiba’s ideas, Jun’s direction, Nino’s composings, etc.

basically i am seconding everything the lovely toumeiningen has said up there. people tend to forget that we’re all equally fans of the group; there’s no hierarchy involved here.
as for the confession itself, well, saying things like ‘go find another less real and dedicated band’ and ‘you suck as a fan’ doesn’t get your point across, it only succeeds in showing people how rude you can get when someone merely has a differing opinion than yours. you can say you’re just being protective towards the boys and their hardwork, but that does not excuse your behavior. and i don’t think many are aware of that, considering how many likes this one confession got. it’s alarming how many people in the fandom actually agree to this line of thinking and believe that it’s even justifiable.

Reblogging again because these two lovelies sum up this confession way better than I did.

Fandoms are not under dictatorship or something. We don’t need to be 100% agree on everything. Why are people talking about opposing ideas and different preferences like it’s a bad thing?

Blind love won’t take you anywhere yo.

oh the drama /shrugs

I often talk to the members about this, but I think the basic foundation is that we’ll still enjoy doing what we do now. Whilst growth must be accompanied by change, the basics still remain the same.
