We’ve been calling phan aesthetic, when really, they aren’t.
Aesthetic is just about beauty. And only beauty. It serves no other purpose than to decorate/look good.
Phan are not just beauty. They are much more than that. They have served a much better purpose than beauty.
They have helped countless fans get over depression, given motivation and they have had a huge impact on many people’s lives (including mine).
So please, the next time you call phan aesthetic, use another word.
Thank you. <3
