I saw both of these things in real time.

Although I don’t consider myself part of fandom now, I was part of it at both of the times that this meme references and… no lies detected. If anything, this is just one of many reasons why I’m glad my kids’ access to the Internet is as limited as it is. Them getting into things like… this, like this, at the ages some of the more impressionable members of fandom were when they were either their loudest or most impressionable is not something I think I’ll be dealing with, and I am exceedingly thankful for that. (At the most, they watch television on the actual thing, or videos via YouTube or YouTube Kids, which I’m alright with and thankful for!)
