Ladies First Examines Toxic Fandom Behaviors

In today’s episode of Ladies First, Kori and Taylor discuss toxic elements of fandom and their connections to Internet culture in general. Our topics include fandom discourse that reflects binary, black-and-white thinking associated with religion and the social justice movement, and how we talk about women in the public eye.

Authors

  • Taylor is a writer who will always jump at the chance to blur genres. So obviously she can't pick just one to fangirl over. Though if she had to choose, she would narrow it down to science fiction and fantasy. Currently, she is most interested in women-centric stories and the depiction of trauma in media. She is also an aspiring YA novelist and aspiring Taylor Swift scholar.

  • Kori is an entertainment writer and Managing Editor at the Fandomentals. In her spare time, she is a fragrance and watch enthusiast, lover of Eurovision, and Yanni devotee. Find her on Instagram at @fmkori
