Official-nhl’s “article,” in which he claims responsibility for creating a hockey fandom on tumblr, is basically just him saying, “Oh this demographic of young women are only fans because I made them fans. This community only exists because I made it so. Women aren’t real sports fans, they’re just a mindless mass I’ve been leading for the past four years.”
When will men stop disparaging female sports fans? When will they stop pretending we can’t think for ourselves? When will they stop taking credit for our passions and achievements?
Honestly it’s disgusting, this idea he has of himself as the sole reason all these women on tumblr are hockey fans.
Hockey fandom on tumblr is a community of strong, opinionated, and passionate women who love this sport because WE love this sport, not because some dude with a computer made gifs faster than anyone else. Don’t belittle us, and don’t try to take credit for a community WE built and a passion that is ours, not something you manufactured.
Only man who deserves the credit of making me a hockey fan is my father.
so you can suck it fuckboy.
