Listen to me. Read my words: It’s OK to like junky stuff.

FOX / Via

If you like something it’s because it brings you joy, that’s enough of a reason to like it. Full stop.

Enjoying whatever makes you happy is what makes the world bearable, and that’s important.

You are NOT stupid for enjoying trashy shows, and anyone who says you are is condescending.

Also those people never have any fun ever and that's a fact.

And while it's true that many of these shows have problematic elements, it's OK to acknowledge that and enjoy them anyway.

You can know in your heart that the female representation on a show is severely lacking and still be into it. You are vast and you contain multitudes.

Like what you like, love what you love, and anyone who thinks it’s trash is the real trash bag here, if we're being honest.
