Apparently, there are fans who appear to also blame Michael Jackson for hanging out with little children after he was accused of sexually molesting 13 year old Jordan Chandler. Additionally, these "fans" like to appear as though they are critical of Jackson's behavior and don't let things slide, opposite to other fans — upon doing this, they tend to accuse by slamming his behavior and saying that it was "his fault" that the allegations came about, because he shared his bed with children, and paid them settlements. Seemingly, these "fans" like to appear as though they still enjoy Jackson's music and electrifying performances, which to an extent, and are not just "fans" because of their mere liking for his dance moves, but because they generally like Jackson.
Do They, Though?
Okay, not really. These fans may not like Jackson "generally" — however, they still enjoy his performances. Obviously! How could they not — after all, they became fans of him through his moves, if not him (which is obvious from their critical analysis of his behavior; which is not so critical). Why accuse Jackson of behavior as such? Possibly they do not want to appear as the "rabid, delusional, and crazy" cult followers of Jackson as deemed by various "detractors" of Jackson who are in no position themselves to criticize Jackson's fans for their "cult-like" attitude.
Sure, while (*) some of Jackson's fans do tend to "criticize" his behavior, most are in adamant defense of him. After all, it makes sense why someone would defend the one whom they are fans of, instead of criticizing them all together. This is not about the fans who admit that possibly sharing your bed with children may not be ordeal; this is about the "fans" who go on a whole other boat when talking about Jackson, at least with some others who deem his behavior as inordinate. What does a whole other boat mean, though? Well, that leads straight to the next point...
A Whole Other Boat
A whole other boat... What does that mean? Well, this is indeed a critical analysis of those who launch the same type of endeavor with Jackson, except this is not about the public "detractors" — this is about the supposed "fans" who like the singer (according to them) or at least his music, who do not accept Jackson's behavior. Hey! It's fine to not agree with Jackson's behavior — but this? C'mon guys. What is the "this" that is being discussed? A whole army of those who pretend to be the singer's fans evidently, while also trashing his behavior completely.
Some of Jackson's fans think of Jackson as their musical robot and nothing else other than an eccentric guy, who who had somewhat abnormally strange friendships with children, according to them. This is not an overstretch, because there are always "fans" who self proclaim themselves as such, who simply criticize Jackson solely for the purpose of either trolling, or just blending in with what just about everyone else is doing, i.e. making critical statements regarding Jackson.
Speaking of a whole other boat, most fans of Jackson are pretty different in regards to their views on him. Okay, maybe that isn't the case... However, that really doesn't matter once you view that there are still portions of fans who think differently on Jackson and his lifestyle. Of course then you also have the ones such as — "Oh, Invincible is MJ's best album, while Thriller sucks!" — and then there's those — "Thriller is the best! Invincible is the trashiest album in MJ's discography!" — these types of people are on one boat, but still virtually agree with everything (mostly) on Jackson's lifestyle, and do dispute mostly on the music, opposed to his lifestyle.
Do not get this wrong, however. There are still some minorities among the fans of Jackson, who dispute like this — "MJ shouldn't've dangled his baby in Berlin. Stupid choice!" — and then there's these guys — "MJ did not do it in the way the tabloids presented it!" — these types of fans dispute on Jackson's life like this, though rarely are there any arguments on whether Jackson molested those boys or not, because if they were to truly believe that (openly at least), then they wouldn't be part of Jackson's fans. There are of course, some who believe that Jackson made poor choices regarding his handling with particular matters regarding children, but they might not think of Jackson as a molester. However, the ones who are a totally different boat, are those who speak in a way of Jackson as though he committed those crimes, yet still manage to hold their position as a "fan" among Jackson's fans.
Blaming Michael Jackson for the problems which happened in his life to him is not fair — why? The things which happened to him in his life was something serious, and if it were anyone else, all sympathies would have gone out to them. The man suffered many problems in his life, which really do make him a sorry case. Here are several points which show Jackson's sorrow and suffering in his life, paramount in understanding why he is not to blame.
Sufficient enough points? Clearly. Jackson should not be blamed for the things which happened in his life, because if you see what happened in his life, it's clear that Jackson did not have control over the actions of what occurred in his childhood, which clearly impacted his adulthood. Jackson should not be blamed.
They Still Don't Get it
Sure, while Jackson sharing his bed may have been risky for his reputation, the children inside of the room were in good hands with Jackson. This is an undisputed fact, which was told by many adults who were inside of the room with both Jackson and the children. Jackson sharing his bed with children doesn't not equate guilt, and while it may have been a poor decision on his part, it still could be explained very easily. In 2003 Jackson already explained to Ed Bradley that there is no problem with sharing your bed with children. Not only in the 60 Minutes Australia Interview did Jackson open up about this, but also in a 1995 Primetime Interview featuring Jackson and his then wife, Lisa Presley, did he open up about sharing his bed with children, aside from the infamous Martin Bashir 2003 documentary Living with Michael Jackson, which gained notoriety for Jackson based on what he said.
If you do not agree with Jackson's ideology of bed sharing being acceptable, that's fine and no one really cares about your opinion. So there's really no need to be making a whole website expressing how much you disagree with a deceased pop singer's ideology about sharing his bed. That doesn't matter. However, if you are a fan and do this, then that's also fine. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. Surely everyone has their own opinions which differ from that of others. Yet some still do not get it and instead make websites, or attack Jackson based on this ideology which doesn't matter since that is what Jackson himself thought. Besides, the man was acquitted in the court of law on June 13, 2005. That should be respected, at the very least, if not accepted.
Dear Michael, it's all your fault!
As a fan of Michael Jackson, it's safe to say that it is all your fault Michael! You did it! But don't get tricked by the wording. It's not Michael Jackson's fault that these allegations came about against him — it's his fault that he opened his house up to such greedy people, who would exploit him. It's his fault that he cared about children so much, which led to these allegations and slanders. It's not his fault that he was accused; it's not his fault that he was slandered shamelessly by the media; it's not his fault that he did plastic surgery; it's not his fault he had Vitiligo; so "fans" of Jackson, Jackson could've did anything he wanted in his life and it's really not your place to judge Jackson on the decisions he made in his life, which were according to his own past experiences and trauma.
