Xydexx's Axiom of Fandom Enjoyability

Part 1 - April 18, 2002

The following is a public service message.

Xydexx's Theory Of Fandom Enjoyability states thus:

If you hang around with a bunch of people who go around saying how much furry fandom sucks, you will eventually start to believe it's true.
If you try to convince a bunch of people who enjoy saying furry fandom sucks that it isn't true, you're wasting time that would better be spent hanging around with people who are actually fun to hang around with.

You know the type, they're all part of the same sad downward spiral and it's best to avoid them before they drag you down too. It's all a lot of wallowing in angst, because they think it's cool to say everything sucks for some reason. They continually reaffirm each other that Furry fandom sucks, yet they're still here, whining and complaining and miserable, and can't understand why other people are having such a good time.

Here's a clue: We're having a good time because we hang out with cool people and not the folks who want us to stay with them on Planet Misery.

Ultimately it's up to you what path you want to take, and what you want to get out of this fandom. You get back what you put in, and inevitably that will lead you to finding cool and interesting folks to have fun with, or grumpy curmudgeons to be miserable with. I prefer the former, myself.

Jim Doolittle said it best.
