We all know someone who loves something so much, they turn into into their ENTIRE lives and can't talk about anything else. Yikes.
"I went to someone’s house once who was obsessed with Disney. I wasn’t warned about how obsessed they were and literally had to stop in the middle of the room because I was gaping at the sheer volume of Disney stuff they had. Every inch of the walls and surfaces was covered in Disney paraphernalia. The sad/weird thing was that these were extremely wealthy people, so they had things like original Disney stuff from the '30s–'40s and actual valuable objects just crammed next to some tacky plastic plates."
3. "Some fans are kinda scary. Their whole life becomes dedication to a celebrity’s. And it’s not just their personality — they make everything around them about that person."
"Posters, music, merchandise, weird things bought on the internet — supposedly related to the subject of their obsession — and so on."
6. "Horses. I don't think I've ever met someone who owns horses whose entire existence didn't solely revolve around the fact that they own horses."
10. "Harry Potter."
"I love Harry Potter too, but there's a difference between loving the books and films and using it as a framework to examine reality. No, the politician you dislike isn't just like Voldemort. And no, people aren't divisible into four sets of character traits."
14. "Their music taste."
"I was like that as a teen. You don't listen to heavy metal? Why not? I enjoy listening to heavy metal; therefore, I am somehow cooler and better than you. I liken it to going to a buffet and only eating chicken breast. You're not impressing anyone, dipshit, you're just missing out on a ton of other cool flavors and textures."
17. "Their boyfriends/girlfriends."
"'J.T. has my ❤️. 👩❤️👨4.18.2014. 💍7.02.2017. 👰♀️1.22.2020.'"
21. And finally, "The generation they're born in."
"Ugh, I can't stand the smug 'I'm a '90s kid, you're not' thing. It's nonsensical. This culture didn't suddenly start in 1990 or suddenly stop in 2000. Decades blend into each other, and we only really differentiate them later on. Plenty of things associated with the '90s were still popular in the early 2000s. It's fun to reminisce together, but the whole cliquey gatekeeping thing is pretty cringeworthy, imo."
