Syfy and Supernatural: Opinions and Bullying

2 Apr

Hey, guys!

Ok, I’ll admit that I’m a sucker for an awesome syfy, supernatural, or fantasy show or movie! And I’ll also admit that I’ve got several opinions from close friends that weren’t so inviting… I must ask, because I clearly don’t understand, why is this such a big deal?

It’s not like watching super awesome, action-packed shows is a crime. I mean, someone can have an opinion, because everyone is entitled to one, of course. The issue, in opinion, is that most of these people are technically bullying me, and possibly other fans, too. I’ve been recently called a “geek” and a “nerd” amongst others. So I watch an assortment show genres, your point is? That I’m a “nerd” or a “geek”? First of all, those aren’t politically correct, and second of all, that’s plain bullying. Although I choose to politely ignore it, sometimes it does affect me, naturally. It’s almost inevitable, I suppose. Even still, why should they have all the power?

The truth is that bullies, not matter how tough or strong they might seem, are insecure and probably have had bullying done to them as well. I know that we’ve been told that all the time, but I’ve actually experienced this myself. I’ve been bullying most of my life at school, and I had been personally affected by it. This one bully had bullied me for like my whole high school career. He told me that I’m “worthless” and “wouldn’t make it in this world” (add cuss words to that), but deep down, I knew he was wrong. I mean, he knew me before for like half a semester. Anyway, one day he confessed, not to me, that he was having trouble at home and his family was messed up. That’s when I knew it was true what they say. Bullies are insecure and feel the need to put someone else down to make them feel ‘better’ than they are. But, you see, we’re the ones who are better, because we don’t bully anyone, even if we feel insecure. Everyone has their baggage, even me.

Obviously, being a fan of anything is no reason to be bullied or feel afraid of what other people might think. Hey, I’ve told practically everyone I talk to that I’m a syfy, supernatural, and fantasy fan! (They read my blog.) Give it a shot! You’ll end up with a lot more friends than bullies, just by sharing honestly and putting trusting them. You can choose your own friends and create your own rules, so why not announce your love of the action-packed (and super awesome) tv and movie shows? I’ll always be here to give you support and advice!

Happy watching!
