    Re: This is how you can tell I live alone

    Is it really taboo to watch kids shows? A person's gotta be really shallow to impugn anybody's character over that. There is some legitimate overlap between that "creep-base" and the LazyTown fan-base. But even fantasizing about young girls is a private thing and doesn't make somebody a creep. I'm used to people thinking there's something wrong with me. I like the weird looks! It's better to be honest, have people think what they will, and ultimately be defined by your actions.

    Re: This is how you can tell I live alone

    You are partly right about the thing with ones fantasies being a private thing, and that we shouldn't judge people by their thoughts, but rather their actions. But if you want to hide these fantasies away from the public, it's best to not talk openly about watching the show in the first place. People will make assumptions, and even though these may be totally off, you will still fall under what people might think.
    I know we're different, but I still gotta disagree strongly with you on the part about 'fantasizing about young girls' not being creepy. I'm 20, and if I have to be honest, I must admit that I have seen some 16 yo girls and thought to myself that they looked good. But if you're 24, and thinking a 13 yo girl is sexy, it is wrong.*

    About watching a childrens show being a taboo, I would have to argue against you again. These shows are made specifically for children, and if we're honest here; it shows. What does LazyTown really try to tell the audience? Eat healthy, be active, don't lie, be loyal, and just in general to be good here in life. Clearly things marketed at younger peeps, and something that adults should already know.
    So it's a taboo to watch childrens tele as an adult, because you are supposed to go through the process of growing up, and becoming more mature. That's also why a child can get away with playing gameboy an entire day, or pretending their toy car is real, and race with it on the carpets endless evenings. Imagine a full grown man asking his boss to have 30 minutes play-time at his office.

    Now, I understand that you are not really into what other people think about you, and you actually enjoy the strange looks you get by them, but you got to keep in mind that we are very different people in here. I actually care about my reputation, and what not only my friends, but also just people that know my name, think about me. Just coming out of the teen years, I have build quite a status in my network, and I have quite a few people, not only respect me, but actually look up to me. That's why it's so important for me to not come across as a creep, a weirdo, and certainly not as a pedo.

    N.B!
    After this rant, I think I owe a short little disclaimer. I do not in any way think that LazyTown is childrish, and I do not view it as a taboo to be watching this specific show. After 6 years it still baffles me how well produced this show is. This being the actors, singers, puppeteers, the musical aspect, or just the cinematographic shooting of it in general. But.. That is only because I have actually seen it, and focused on how good it is. From other peoples view, this is just yet another childrens show, and all the points I just mentioned immediately kicks in. From their point of view, I could might as well be watching My Little Pony.

    *This was just an example because of how this discussion started, and I do not in any way have these thoughts about anyone. Especially not about you.

    Re: This is how you can tell I live alone

    Seems we all do wrong things daily. Sucks, especially when u can see your mistakes. For example, I'm into Babe from Game Shakers right now and my age will be 29 soon. So, w/e I don't know how old she is but obviously she's small. Likey likey?

    Let's not kid ourselves here. LazyTown is a children's show. A well made one, but it is most definitely a children's show.

    I know mang, but given the fact of the position that my fandom stands in, I think I'm better off keeping it to myself. Sure I have all the episodes, and is constantly searching for the best quality of these, but in all fairness I sometimes skip all the small talk, and fast forward directly to where the song is. You on the other hand.. that is another story. The fact that you actually went ahead and visited the studios really proves your dedication. Something I can only look up to, and kick myself in the head for not being the person with unlimited access to Mni's holy grail.

    As I also said in my post. It's marketed for children, but the professionalism about the show makes me say that watching it is not childrish/a taboo.

    You were right.
    Especially not if the show suddenly became socially acceptable, because of some goofy internet fame.

    Re: This is how you can tell I live alone

    Even though I'm a kid. I'm 11. and I think thats a little old for a kid to be watching a show made for preschoolers, but that cant stop me! I feel like its less weird for me, but seeing all of your experiences, I think thats true.

    I'm almost 19, but I do enjoy kids shows a lot, this being one of them. I'm pretty open about the stuff I like, heck my whole room is dedicated to my Disney collection, which has a lot of Lion Guard things in it.

    Yeah, I get how you feel. I'm not as open with LazyTown as I am with Hamtaro/Pokemon/Disney. I mean, at least you could argue the others could be somewhat enjoyable for all ages, but it's much harder to explain why you're into a preschool show when you're in high school

    Re: This is how you can tell I live alone

    It's odd how some kids media is more 'acceptable' to enjoy as an adult than others. For example, suggesting the Lego Movie (a great movie) to my fiancee's family had them saying no, because it's for kids so they shouldnt be watching it. Yet they will happily settle down with a Disney movie?

    To be honest I think it's more childish to not watch 'childish' things for fear of being childish. As C.S LEwis said: “Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”

    a bit long sorry. But I love that quote

    Re: This is how you can tell I live alone

    I was slightly open about my LazyTown antics. I mean, I don't always bring it up or flamboyantly show it off; but people who know me well enough know that I now have an 'interest' for the show, despite it being targeted for kids. And pretty much, not many people care.

    However, I was once cyber-bullied about it a few times on Twitter (especially in 2016 when LazyTown was 'deemed' to just be and always will be a meme). But tbh, I really don't care anymore about their opinions and it took them a while for them to accept that I'm now part of the fandom.

    But at the same time, I just keep the fangirling to my self 90% at the time because... I need a social life. I once sang We are Number One to a few of my uni classmates during an overseas internship and they thought I was drunk (it was breakfast when it happened). But I'm lucky to come across a handful of people who's cool with me for liking the show.

    As for my family... it was a really awkward situation for the entirety of December but they slowly accepted that this was now a thing... still wished I'd grow up though.

    Re: This is how you can tell I live alone

    I made a huge mistake when I first joined the fandom posting memes everywhere on snapchat and facebook where everyone from my high school is in because I thought it would be socially acceptable since it was a huge meme and I sadly regret it now, I tried my best to keep it to myself but I was excited with the fandom and I didn't know what to do then and I got bullied a few times and it carried on to later on, in fact the last time a few months ago some boy was threatening to get someone on me to "get me to stop" and he one of the "friends" I lost then I went on a long rant confessing and thinking I should get out the meme and "let it die" cos I was so offended and a in that day a girl was giving me abuse, it was heartbreaking I tried to not say i really enjoy the show and the fandom (I tend to keep that private) and i said it was only for the memes, the boy said he was only helping me looking back i think hes right but the girl was giving me a lot of hate for the memes and i had to say it was for the memes but she got triggered at the m word, school is starting back and im planning on being mature, dont get into anymore drama (I was in alot even before lazytown which being in the fandom helped a lot) and grow up be a better person and apologize to the people i've done wrong, its really tough and hard and im actually kinda scared to go back incase anyone notices the whole lazytown forever and it gets worse ;(

    Re: This is how you can tell I live alone

    I'm so sorry to hear of people being bullied for something they enjoy.
    I was bullied for having a fringe!! that's how truly and utterly pathetic bullies are. Also, I refuse to subscribe to the clich "be nice to bullies, they have a sad homelife". Unless you have tourette's, you CHOOSE what to say and CHOOSE how to act, for those are the only 2 things it's within you to control.

    Yeah, thats true. I may have lost a few people but I gained new ones at the same time. And that's something I look forward to, finding and talking to people who will accept every part of you... even if you have an interest for a kids show.

    Yeah... people will heavily judge this or anything really, but there will be those who will find it really cool that you enjoy it and etc.
