Backlash Against The Backlash Against The Backlash
At first there was a backlash against the changes that Disney was making in its parks and company.
Now there appears to be a backlash against people who are vocal about their complaints and criticisms of Disney.
I would now like to start a new backlash against the backlash of the backlash...
What I'm really trying to say is that I'm getting increasingly frustrated with the threads that are complaining about people who are vocal about certain dissatisfactions with Disney.
Often these threads paint groups who complain about Disney as fanboys, Walt would roll over in his grave, and end of the world types.
While there are definitely people like that I would argue that, for the most part, these are people who are quite reasonable who are simply voicing their disapproval over certain issues.
Labels, like those previously mentioned, as well as statements that people should just get over it and get used to it are highly dismissive and kind of unfair.
I myself am okay with Be Our Guest restaurant serving alcohol and am also kind of adverse to the main street bakery being replace by Starbucks. Some of my reasoning for and against these changes are good, and some are bad.
I just don't like that people feel they can judge and dismiss people voicing their opinions without even knowing who these people are.
We don't all believe our vacations will be ruined over these changes and I for one voice my concerns with the hope that there are enough like minded people like myself also voicing their concerns and that Disney will notice and adjust accordingly. If not then that is ok too.
But please people be respectful of others choices. Listen, and if you disagree, then offer your counterarguments.
I find so many threads about such simple issues becoming super heated. We all have opinions lets all just be friendly when we disagree.
