I am outraged that I was expected to serve myself food from steam trays, and decide my own portion sizes! That put my health at risk, and is worthy of retroactive protest!

Seriously, there's a thread on this.

I was fanatic about Freeing Britney, because I'm mentally myself! I consider that my unhappiness with the world and poor coping skills are a serious anxiety disorder and clinical depression, and I was afraid that if Britney wasn't freed my parents would be able to put me under conservatorship!

It never crossed my mind to read up on conservatorships, or on what kinds of mental illness are serious enough to make conservation necessary. I really believe that all mentally ill people are like me.

I'm Youtube personality Chantal Marie Olive Sarault, aka "Foodie Beauty". Chronologically I'm thirty-eight, but otherwise, my behavior is more indicative of fourteen and fifteen year-old trailer trash. I'm an ignorant, racist, homophobic, transphobic, hypocritical, misogynistic, anti-semetic, greedy, lazy, filthy, psychologically & emotionally stunted super morbidly obese pathelogical liar, and a HUGE fucking cunt.

I faked a suicide attempt at fifteen, when my mother wouldn't let me go fuck my twenty-something "boyfriend", while trying to avoid his then current girlfriend (also a twenty-something), who SHOWED UP TO MY SCHOOL TO BEAT MY ASS.

My sole area of interest is "BEEZING", which is a term I apply to EVERYTHING, including eating massive amounts of food & taking drugs on camera (despite my ever-iincreasing laundry list of comorbidities), driving under the influence, cursing paying channel members out & deleting them, scamming people on other platforms, and desperately trying to hold onto the Egyptian criminal crackhead I'm supporting financially (when he's not forcing me to eat his new girlfriend's grey pussy).

It's okay though. I got them back. I later bragged about intentionally soaking her mattress with my own piss while hooking back up with the Egyptian while she was at work. So fuck her!

Seriously folks, if you haven't heard of her...perhaps you should avoid Chantal altogether. But if you're STILL curious, check out the linked documentary. It's somewhat dated now, because it was produced two years ago, and a lot has happened since (including the Egyptian Pissy Pussy-Eating arc mentioned above).

"I don’t think having an interest in something juvenile makes you juvenile. ACTING juvenile does."

I agree, adults need fun, and the more stressful their lives are, the more harmless fun they need! If I'm busting my ass in an ICU and fighting losing battles, I don't want to come home to dreary art house movies, I want some fucking escapism, and that definitely includes Marvel and Star Wars!

Which isn't to say that there aren't infantalized adults by the wazoo in the fandoms, like the needledicks who sent racist messages to the young lady in the "Obi-Wan Kenobi" show, because they didn't like her performance and she was, in their favorite phrase, "RUINING OUR CHILDHOODS!!!!!!!".

I'm 53 and I'm just about to sell all my old Star Wars action figures and toys from the 70's and 80's that I had when I was a kid. I know some of what I own is worth some $ and frankly, I'm just sick of being this age and still holding onto this plastic junk that I should have let go of years ago.

To be honest, I used to collect a bunch of Star Wars shit and after confronting my own mortality this year (cancer) I realized how silly it is to hold onto "stuff." None of that shit goes with you when you die and the rest are left to be picked over by family who will likely just toss it all after I'm gone because they won't want to be bothered trying to sell it. Plus, downsizing and getting rid of as much stuff as possible makes life just easier.

But I'll always be a Star Wars fan. At this age, I really don't care if people think I'm "infantilized" because if I was to tell you the shit I have been through in my life, it would make your head spin. Been on my own since 18 and have been successful in my career and have always found a way to get through any trauma life throws my way. If I want to put on my VR headset and pretend to be a Jedi with a lightsaber fighting Darth Vader for an hour on the weekends, well that's what I will do. Life is too short to not have something that helps you feel like a kid again.

Liking Star Wars or having stuffed animals or watching superhero movies doesn't make one an infantilized adult.

Not being able to maintain relationships, hold down a job, pay bills on time every month, figure out a way to get your ass where it needs to be without constantly asking for rides, making the rest of the world responsible for your health and happiness - THESE are the characteristics of infantilized adults.

If somebody can manage all of the above, it doesn't matter what they like to read or watch or collect, they are still adults. Just adults with different interests than you.

Liking light entertainment doesn't make a person immature or arrested. Everyone needs fun in their lives, very intelligent and competent adults can enjoy silly stuff, knowing perfectly well that it's silly.

Having no life outside of your appreciation of the silly entertainment, on the other hand... ever met a hardcore incel Star Wars fan?

So I've always aspired to be a stay-at-home wife, what I really want to do is cook, craft, work out, have a social life, and keep my man happy, instead of slaving away in a toxic work environment. But when I told my husband about my dream, you think he was supportive? No, HE quit his job, saying IT was toxic, and now he just sits gaming all day and all night, and *I* have to pay all the bills!!

So how do I get him to be more supportive of my dreams? If he won't man up and support me, I'll have to move back in with my parents, and they're even more toxic than my boss...

I spent years busting my ass in an ICU, and FYI the hard-working and intelligent doctors and nurses there tended to be insanely serious about their hobbies. There were a couple of Star Wars nuts, someone with a makeup blog, a cosplayer, a motorcycle nutter, golfers who'd argue about clubs as long as they were allowed, and even yes, a stuffed animal collector.

They weren't infantilized people, they were people trying to deal with stress with "healthy coping mechanisms". And yes, if you're seriously stressed, then consider that collecting stuffed animals to deal with stress IS healthy, and the good old-fashioned manly coping mechanisms of drinking yourself blind or driving in a road-rage mood are not.

Yes, well-adjusted people have interests and hobbies, but we are talking about the extreme ones who merge their entire identity with their extreme interest in this stuff. When I think of Disney obsessed people, I think of the crazy ones with Disney princess collectables everywhere or incels with anime characters tattoos who have no life outside of their hobbies. Those are the ones people are making fun of.

"OMG, Trump is SO Darth Vader. And Trump Jr is totally Kylo Ren!"
