It only makes a difference here because like I said the internet has it’s own language that “outsiders” just can’t understand, it’s like a whole ‘nother culture, which is why it was a bad idea for them to even TRY for a “Merica Day”, Let me give you an example, “I may be a ship glutton but I still only have 5 true OTPs (I say “true” because I have fandom OTPs like Sterek but that’s different), which are, in order, Klaine, Spirk, Merthur, and Dryler PLUS my IRL OTP which is CrissColfer, but I believe they are in a league of their own, you know because RP. Let the dang teenagers have their funny, ironic Merica Day and be done with it. It’s about USA pride. Close.

I see you know your Colorado (I’m a Denver native and went to college in Greeley). I can see people totally mocking a school for that, and I would give benefit of the doubt and appreciation to a school official who was trying to stay out of a media brouhaha. I agree. We needed permission; not “oversight.” The adults are in charge, and they would be the ones called out publicly for allowing this in the school. that was a beautiful story, i’m so touched.

Oh, no, I would never say they did. At least to me. I’m horrified by some of the crap coming out of both sides, and usually slightly more horrified by some of the stuff coming out of the “conservative” side (who seem to have forgotten what “conservative” means when it comes to anything but taxes).

And she know’s different things than we do!! Why would you be proud of wilful ignorance? Technology for understanding the digital world and mitigating electronic threats. They jump out of their seat and scream when their team gets a touchdown, and I don’t get that.

He doesn’t need you to defend him, or his life partner or his ship or whatever.

So we were taught a lot of respect for our country & flag. No probably not, but I never said it was, I just said that just because you don’t understand something that doesn’t give you the right to go cray-cray on those who do. 26.

I didn’t believe they were real, until now….or at least…knew how to find the internet beyond the NRA website.. . Just because someone uses and understands the internet doesn’t make them a neanderthal (are you 80). Please excuse my passion, and Chris DOES know about and acknowledge his Stans, (he loves us btw), he says FanFiction (stories written by fans with him in them) is like the ultimate high-five, he likes his fanart, and even reads his FanFiction (which is both awesome and terrifying for us writers), so don’t worry ’bout him k. Look I know you don’t get it (as that’s what this whole conversation has been about), you think I’m crazy for knowing so much about certain actors and characters and understanding how the internet works, and ok whatever, but there are guys out there that know every single thing about certain football players, and spend REAL money on the sport and obsess over who will win and scream at the TV when they watch a game!

It is for me, too, apparently. A) they change it to America Day, or B) they keep it as ‘Merica Day and each student writes an essay, or participates in a debate regarding the matter.

You know, ‘merica. So I agree with your comment on that level. It helps keep things in perspective.

ANYWAY, back to the flip’n point, I’m not comparing Chris Colfer or CrissColfer or Star Trek or ANY fandom to Italy, this is not about FANDOMS, I don’t know how you came up with that… This is about the INTERNET, and how people who don’t really use the internet don’t understand all the things that come from it, and just like Italy or Scotland or Canada, it has it’s own culture, is it equivalent to the taj mahal?
