Socially Conservative Fans

Postby kbfreakc » Sun Jan 12, 2014 10:27 am

Do you consider homosexuality to be sinful? Are you horrified by such concepts as Polyamory and BDSM? Are you a member of the NRA and like to hunt and fish? If you answered yes to each of these questions and consider yourself to be a part of fandom then the chances are that you are a Socially Conservative Fan. Clearly socially conservative fans are a minority in fandom, and for that reason alone they tend to hide and are not very outspoken. What place do Socially Conservative fans have in Fandom? How do we fight back against the charge that we are hateful? How do we walk the fine line of being more outspoken but not offensive within fandom?
