So... I got a bit heated and I blew up about Dan and Phil
I was in a debate with my aunt a while back, and it irked me. She’s the type of person who is very conservative and doesn’t understand how internet culture really works. (Even though she HAS her own fandom and talks to her twitter friends daily) The main thing is that she doesn’t get is how the YouTube community works. Or more specifically, why I love Dan and Phil so much.
Because when I told her that they were 29 and 25, she blew up at me. Saying that they’re gay and living together (I literally feel your eyes rolling, I know me too) for years without being married-to women- in that time frame is a waste. That I was wasting my time liking someone so much older than me (Only 5 and 9 years. I’m closer to their age range than the average subscriber, but she didn’t understand that and got even more frustrated) She mentioned that they were “pedophiles” and lurch on the younger audience attention so they can get paid for “acting like idiots”
not to sound like i still live in 2007-2010 but i would much prefer to have scene kids come back and be embarassed years later then those little viper prep children who stay the way they are with no phase that they look back on
