It's a simple message that people don't seem to understand. Slenderman is not cute.
Slenderman, from the very beginning, has been a horrific monster, some people even believe he is a demon, me being one, who traumatizes and scars children throughout their childhood and then takes them away and does horrible things to them and assumingly kills them. He is not a sweet little guy who just wants a hug, 20 dollars, or a friend. He is an evil being that wants nothing more or less than to take you away, torture you, and eat you.
"oh, but i'd enjoy it! i'd let him eat me ;D"
"he'd never hurt real ppl tho!!!!!"
"your being mean!!!!! he's just misunderstood!!!!!!"
It's not exactly hard to misunderstand when he's ripping your intestines out, is it? Oh, wait, but it was just an accident, right? I'm sure he'll call an ambulance right away and tell you all is going to be okay. You'll be just fine and after you recover, you'l laugh it all away. Hahahaha - no.
Now don't get me wrong. Some cute drawings of Slenderman with a teddy bear or giving a child a hug are very nice and I like to see them. But it's really disappointing to watch a Slender group expecting horrifying art and then get anime-kawaii-desu-blushu and ponyfied derpy Pinkie Pie Slendermen 99% of the time. It seems that anything horrifying and murderous can't stay just that anymore - everything has to be justified and turned cutsie. Even the slashers - Jason, Freddy, Ghostface, Leatherface, Pinhead, they've all been butchered to death (no pun intended) by forever alone, me gusta, and other meme faces and chibi smiles and godforsaken PewdiePie rape jokes that it's hard to appreciate the original horror aspect. 11 year olds either want to seem brave or impressive by saying they are in love with Slenderman, which isn't so much as cool as fucking annoying beyond belief. Which is very sad, because I used to love Slenderman for who he was. I have a cosplay of him and drew him all the time and even made a horror movie about him. But now I just can't look at him without seeing the meme faces and pink blush.
You're not original or funny by making Slenderman cute.
You aren't making him better by completely THROWING AWAY his very characteristics that make him what he is.
You are ruining him, and giving the Slender fandom a bad name.
I just wish everything would go back to the way it was, when horror was horror and slashers were slashers.
Also, if you plan to go onto a huge big rant about how I am so wrong and that Slenderman is cute, go ahead, but I don't care. I'll just ignore you unless you actually put up a decent argument with valid points, not just "OMGZ!!!!! SLENDY IS LIEK SO CUTE AND U R SO MEAN!!!!!!!!! HE IS MY BOIFREIND AND HE IS CRYING RITE NOW!!!!!!!! U MADE HIM SAD, U BAKA!!!!!!!! I DO WAT I WANT!!!!! BAK OFF!!!!!!!!" So yeah. Come at me, 11 year olds. I'm ready for your sorry little bratty asses.
