Recently I read about vulture culture being just a “fad” stage and I’m like????????
Seriously, who gives a shit? As long as the Vulture is being responsible about where their collection comes from and they are following their local laws, I don’t see what the big deal is in it being a fad.
Can we please avoid elitism in VC? Because I saw that shit ruin previous communities I’ve been in and it needs to be avoided.
I agree, seeing that really bummed me out last night. :/
Also, people who weren’t aware of the new collective phrase for the hobby/hobbies covered might just be discovering the vulture culture community. So it might seem to grow because people are beginning to gather.
Annnd even if they are just setting out because they’ve read about it online? So what. How did anyone else get into these things? They read about them or know someone. Let everyone try it, let those who want to become seriously invested do that. Let those who want to keep it as a casual interest do that. Let those who tried it and realized it wasn’t for them do that, too. Don’t start getting pissy because you’re a real, hardcore, in it from the beginning, vulture.
Be excellent to each other. That’s pretty much it. Oh. And follow the law. That’s a pretty important as well.
YES. (it also rather bummed me out when I saw the original conversation :/)
What does it matter if people are just now entering the vulture culture community? Only just getting involved in the online/tumblr community since being inspired by what they’ve seen online?
Also, who gets to judge other people for their interests? Isn’t that what a lot of vultures were hoping to get away from?
People show different facets of themselves online (or even to different people) (I wonder what my followers think of me … o_o) so to judge people for a snapshot of themselves (ie. excited posts regarding new items which arrive in the post) and then assuming you know more about that person (ie. they only love getting new skulls)… Well, that’s just rude :I
