when really great artists follow u and u don’t want to mess things up

So there’s a panelist’s description of DashCon from the inside which is far less scathing than other accounts but definitely still covers the bad but one point struck me:
Was the crowd full of annoying people who represent the worst of Tumblr?
Why doesn’t Tumblr just come out and say they want a chance to rip on teenage girls? Why not just make it that upfront? The vast majority of attendees were first-timers and were teenage (or early 20s) women. The fact that Tumblr has decided that out of every demographic in the world, girls at this con are the worst is just straight up misogyny to me. I don’t care that you find fandoms annoying. I’m going to be protective as fuck towards most of the people who came to Dashcon looking to have a good time. They are not remotely responsible for the problems it had.
A lot of people focused on the attendees when they shoulda been focusing on the admins
i love GIRLS and i love when girls LOVE THEMSELVES and i love when girls LOVE OTHER GIRLS and this is so AMAZING
