So What If I Like Wrestling?
I'm about to go off on a rant, and please keep in mind, I am not referring to any one person or website. What I'm ranting about has happened before, and it will probably happen again. The burden of being a wrestling fan....
I have written about wrestling -mainly the WWE- on several of these websites. I use these types of websites to blog, and you're supposed to write about what interests you. Well, the WWE interests me.
When you write on multiple websites, there is bound to be people who have to tell you it's "fake," questioning why you like it, "how can to you watch it," etc. I have made hints that my WWE posts are mainly for the people who follow me and like the WWE. I usually let the comments roll off my shoulders, but after a while it kind of gets irritating.
Okay, for starters, I don't like the term "fake." It's scripted and pre-determined, but please don't call it fake to me. Someone just passed away a few weeks ago over the injuries sustained in a match that went terribly wrong. Others have had concussions, broken bones... one will never walk again. I just find it disrespectful to them, and a bit disrespectful to me too, even if it wasn't intentional. But let's also keep in mind, it is no more scripted than other shows and movies.
It doesn't matter why I like it, how old I am, how I can watch it, etc. There is no age limit to watching something you love. If that's the case then maybe we should -all- give up what we love and sit around watching paint dry. Sounds fun, eh? I like it because it's fun to watch; -I- find it to be entertaining. I have had amazing experiences and met some of my best friends because I'm a wrestling fan, and I have no regrets.
Now I am not talking about innocent comments, but when I get the vibe that I'm being looked down on because I like wrestling; I don't like that. I would never down anyone for being a fan The Walking Dead or The Fast and The Furious series -for examples. You like what you like, and it's good to be into something and to have some fun.
I am not asking anyone to watch it with me. Trust me, I have my friends who watch it with me. I'm just asking to be respected for something I like. You're never obligated to comment my posts, and if you don't want to comment my WWE/wrestling posts, then that's fine. If you do comment, please just let me like what I want. I’m already thinking about just sticking my WWE-related stuff on certain blogs, and not so much on others. -Sigh- It’s not really fair to me, but it is what it is, I guess.
While it may not seem like it, I -CAN- handle other opinions, but it’s just the way you put it, ya know? :-/
Thanks. I’m sorry if this comes across as mean, because I'm not a mean person, but everyone needs to vent sometimes. I'm going to go to bed, my laptop is about to die anyways. Goodnight. Take care.
