I'm not really upset, per se. I do agree that I don't really believe anything jess says, but it just seems like evertone is furious with Mark, and while I am suspicious and disappointed, I am not as angry I guess? It just makes me feel out of my place.
I stated my case in my previous wall of text lol, there may be more than what we see right now and I think everyone may be jumping so conclusions quickly.
P.S. I still think you guys are great, just that I don't fit in right now.
I get that. For all its frankness, GG can be a bit on edge sometimes.
I don't blame you for stepping back, as I've done it myself here a few times. But you'll always fit in here.
We all disagree on a bunch of this stuff and some have had to take a breather, but I appreciate the fact it's still fairly civil. We're all a bunch of misfits here, but that's what makes us stronger.
And I'm not angry, as I mentioned before, just very disappointed. Mark finally broke the silence after 2 1/2 years, but in such a way that it condemned the portion of his fanbase that had already been harshly bullied on tumblr for asking the "forbidden question". And now that I think about it, I've never actually seen such an innocent question met with such hatred by any other celebrity's fanbase, ever
. And we're talking Hollywood-level stars, not a Youtuber who still isn't that well-known outside of the gaming world.
Unfortunately, his silence paved the way for his own fandom to react in such a volatile fashion every damn time someone asked if he was single. He saw it and did nothing. Until now, that is. And when he did, it was in such a way that those same fans now feel justified to attack anyone who ever had a passing interest in this mundane question of whether he had a girlfriend. So yeah, not angry at him, just disappointed. It's those pretentious fans who keep posting hateful, violent things about anyone who dared to ask that Forbidden Question and "sullied their cinnamon roll" I'm angry at.
Others here are
angry, but that's a real and valid response to this too. Much of that anger sprang from hurt, and no one can deny his words were passively caustic. Like he doesn't get why it was a big deal, when his utter silence the past few years tell us he thought it actually was a big deal. That hurt has also bred mistrust, of his motives and his future actions. And despite the tumblrites who keep throwing shade at GG, the fact they keep lurking here tells me they not only know exactly what we're talking about, but that some of them are hurt, angry and mistrustful over this too...and it has nothing to do with Jess.
And it's true that there most likely is
more going on behind the scenes at this point. And that's exactly the problem.
