Just because you liked them first does not mean you own them.

Just because you liked them first does not mean you own them.

I need a place to vent. I would have normally done this on deviantArt but she has an account there too. Anyway. My friend likes this band called Tokyo Police Club. They're kind of hipster, not that popular. She kind of got me into them. I don't like them as much as she does, but I think they're good. So, I made a stamp (http://i796.photobucket.com/albums/yy241/Bella108amel/bb/tpc.png) and she was like, "You've got to be kidding. I can't believe this. There are certain boundaries that one should not cross."

So I replied with, "I'm not allowed to like them just because you liked them first?"

And she said, "Like them as you please, but you don't have to go around advertising it everywhere."

I pointed out that she does fan art of them too, and she didn't reply.

Listen, if you didn't want me to like them, you shouldn't have showed me their music in the first place! You do not own them no matter how much you like them. Just because you liked them first does not mean that no one else is allowed to like them. So build a fucking bridge and get over it.
