Are you freaking kidding me?

I've been MIA from pretty much all fandoms for about 9 months due to the addition of a love life. That love life went up in flames a month ago and so i returned to my beloved fanfiction world only to find that its gone to crap in the meantime.
What the ever-loving hell happened?
I wanted to catch upon Sherlock memes only to discover that the entire fandom seems to have fallen under the bridge. Apparently only trolls need apply. JohnLock has become some sort of psycho cult that  targets everyone who has a different opinion and tries to drown them in a miasma of offensive posturing about how progressive their views are and how homophobic anyone who disagrees is.
It's reached epic proportions when they are calling it heterocentricity and demanding that the show concede to their demands like sexuality terrorists hellbent on altering the world to their viewpoint.
FYI guys that turned out so well for Hitler.
Flicking through various sites I've never seen such hatred for one sexual preference, anyone who is heterosexual and continues to be the gender they were born to be is now called a cis or cishet and, if not overtly ridiculed, is now treated as a second hand citizen. Its a complete about turn from the seventies when homosexuals were demonized. Now if you are heterosexual you are in the minority and seemingly just as maligned as those who stood up for 'equal' rights in terms of your sexuality.
Hetero is used as a derogatory term and anyone who has an opinion against the norm is automatically "homophobic."
So well done all those altgender Nazi's who've managed to circumvent the equalizing of sexual preferences and made it into a pissing contest to see who can be the biggest bitch.
I'm not a CIS. I'm a human being, Who I love is none of your business, I'm not automatically more 'progressive' because I like girls, nor am I homophobic because I prefer boys.
I don't care if you're trans, bi, pan, pseudo, asexual, genderqueer, whatever if you have respect then power to you. I don't care. But when you try to alter my sexual orientation because I'm not of the same mindset you are, then you are just as bad as homophobics, without ignorance as a excuse.
I think I'll find a more accepting, mature and unbiased fandom.

FRISTER!!!!! I have missed you. I am so sorry you've fallen into the pit of gender-policing. I personally hate it. It's impossible to participate in any online discussion now that I first have to spend twenty minutes identifying myself as a cisgendered heterosexual woman and then delineate all my various other privileges and apologize for them, by which time I have forgotten whatever point I wanted to make. I do understand the feeling of wanting to make up for all outsider voices being silenced in the past, I really do, but it's gotten a bit out of hand.

I hear you. SJWs run amok are ruining fun.

Come back to Doctor Who. The old school amongst us are still sane.

I am so sorry that happened. That fandom has really gone to hell and it's gotten out of hand in a big bad way. There's never a ship big enough that you should be alienated from something you like. I don't understand why you would get cis hate for not shipping JohnLock, that's just ridiculous because there's not a trans!issue related to them. If they're calling you cis as a way to try to show you're homophobic, they're being ignorant. And if they're doing it over a stupid non-canon ship, they should go to hell because no one should ever be shamed for being lucky enough to be born in the body they feel like they belong in.

Glad you're back, but so sorry to hear that your favorite fandoms have become so unwelcoming. :(
