*sigh* Does wanting to start wank make me a bad person? I've never been afraid of confrontation before but am generally polite enough to avoid it if it's not needed. And I don't assume that confronting something will lead to wank but with fandom it often does so I try to limit what I do here. I tend to let someone else start the wank and just comment on it afterwards but lately I've been wanting to start it myself :S

I just... today has been filled with so much *flail* on so many different fronts. I think I'm getting myself too worked up. I've been on this path for weeks. I don't know how many rants I've had today, but I can count at least 10 differnt subjects (and I know some of them were repeated more than once).

I almost said that I should just go hide in a cabin in the woods for a while to get over some of this, get it out of my system but I really don't think that would work. I'm someone who needs to talk things out but I can't help but feel anything I say on the matter will invite wank and I really don't want to get wanky despite my opening sentence. Gah. Why so hard?

By "wank," do you mean controversy? They're rather different things, IMO.

In all honesty I think I little of both? The wanky part is wanting to call some people on their shit but the rest of it... is just stuff that's sensitive and I know would devolve into wank. And while I really want to talk about this stuff I don't know if I'm in a place where I can deal with it getting out of control and I have a feeling it would, since I've brought it up with a couple of friends in person and we still managed to offend each other.

I'm just used to fandom doing their thing and normally I can follow on the sides of the conversation or just agree with people or post links on my journal. The podfic community though... I think we're too new to publicly discussing meta and people skirt too much and are just too damn nice sometimes. So the conversations that I feel need to be had aren't happening because no one wants to be the one to bring them up. Or they're happening in very isolated places and I don't think the people that need to get involved even know that they're happening.

That's a tough spot to be in. If no one broaches the issue, it never gets discussed or resolved, but no one really wants to be the person to do it. Not awesome. :(
