I think it really is a personal thing, not just like personal for me but in the sense of the way people/I connect to the music, and the fact that it's the whole reason these people are even in the spotlight. I feel such a strong connection to these people and the art they create that to me it's actually disrespectful when all people care about is that they're pretty, and that they're fine with actually disrespecting said art by being all "oh the music sucks but they're so gay omg squee let me write porn" - I think my reaction to that is probably similar to yours re: people who openly admit to disregarding canon, it's an equal mix of wondering a. if they're really that stupid to admit to that and b. what the fuck they're doing here. I think it's not quite analogous with regard to your Draco comparison though, because in order to get there you have to at least read the books, whereas in RPS people literally will just see some pictures and think they're qualified to write fic. And then I find them and burn down their houses. \o/
Plus if you don't like the music, then you're probably not going to go see shows, and if you have no desire to experience the actual canon when you can, I mean, seriously, just gtfo because I hate your face.
