Judging the Fans
This comment was posted under "Random Thoughts" today. Since that article has moved down the page quite a ways, I decided to post it here. The comment was submitted by Kristin and I think it speaks volumes.
To whoever said this: "The fact is most of KON'S fans are uneducated white trash fundies who think smacking your spouse is ok."
I cannot believe someone would have the audacity to make such a judgment on the fans. It is completely absurd! I am a highly educated female who is currently pursuing a Masters Degree on a full academic scholarship and I happen to be a big fan of the show. My college professor and even several other women in my graduate level classes are fans of the show as well.
No, we do not all agree on how everyone is portrayed but we are educated enough to know a few things. 1. Things are edited. 2. Not all parents are perfect 3. Other parents will do things you do not agree with and 4. TV is entertainment.
People need to take the show for what it is... You can have your feelings about the show and Kate but be mature enough to let others have their own views as well.
