@FanSince09 You can thank Henry Ford. He was scared of kids being influenced by jazz and/or brown people so he used his power to get boards of education to make wholesome square dancing part of gym class curricula. And it’s still around in a lot of places.

These sorts of people are not new, of course. It's just that they used to only operate railroads, shirtwaist factories and mines. Now they live on libertarian message boards and get physically excited at the prospect of telling parents how it's their fault their kid got injured.

It's been very clear for a long time that these people care very little about park safety issues. This is far more about The Cult of Personal Responsibility folks who fetishize the notion of self-reliance and deny that there is any such thing as an unreasonable hazard.

It's been an ugly week in a lot of ways and there are lots of reasons to be grumpy, but the response to this from BTS fans has been sweet and heartening and it's a good reminder that there is more than negativity in the world. @BTS_ARMY

I went to the store and came back to find hundreds of replies from @BTS_twt fans from my thread this morning. They have been uniformly sweet and positive, even if some of it skews a bit sharply into the kind of fandom . . . not everyone has. A refreshing end to an ugly week.
