If you're unfamiliar with the DragonCon Buffy/Whedon Track wank, please move on. Otherwise,
I've got something to say.
For the love of all that is good and naked, please shut up.
Because I generally get along with everyone, I've had to hear from both sides about the various moral affronts that have taken place, ones which, to be perfectly honest, aren't that serious, especially from my point of view. Not to resort to cliché, but what we've got here, essentially, is a failure to communicate--where knee-jerk reactions have only served to escalate this mess into an insipid us-versus-them situation. We have the melodramatic admissions, the shocked betrayals, and the tittering laughter of one group at another.
To be perfectly frank, it's like we're back in high school again, and I fucking hated that part of high school with a fiery passion.
It's rather surprising to me, but this stupid feud has made it so that I'm actually rather glad that I'll be attending a wedding some ten states away on the dates in question.
If you wish to publicly antagonize those people who have different opinions than you do, do not do so around me. If, from your perspective, these individuals are going to shoot themselves in the proverbial foot, let them shoot themselves in the foot
I will take any sign that you're doing otherwise as an indication that you've the all the maturity of a sixteen-year-old hopped up on sugar and hormones, and I'll treat you accordingly. And while I realize that the loss of my friendship is hardly the most effective deterrent, it will at least allow me
some peace and quiet over the next several months.
