being in fandom is not inherently wo/manchildish but there is a fairly large correlation between participating in fandom and being a massive wo/manchild tbh, and most of the anti, pedo, asexy etc discourse thats part of fandom now (on both sides) is just a lot of people's denial of adulthood being pushed to the fore

most people in fic-writing fandom are women

there's no set adulthood where everyone is owning a house, with a stable 9-5 and having kids

this is pure armchair shrink shit, no offense, its sound like a parody of a baby boomer rant

anti, pedo and asexy shit is very influenced by society, particularly americans and the puritan attitudes embedded in society, that attitude isn't new, its the same thing as people who banned books and panicked that women would get the wrong ideas

its not even unique to activism either, a lot of the fandom discourse about feminism and sexuality and shit is straight from the 70s
