    Finally someone has some common sense here to make a video about all this fanfiction shit. You literally said everything that I would say. Well done man. :)

    i dont understand why people are so obsessed with peoples sexuality, why in gods name is that even a thing?? it has to be the younger people who do this, because i know that normal adults dont care about peoples personal life to that extent.

    This video was very pure and will be extremely influential for many of your subscribers. I could tell that you related to Dan and that you were personally hurt by the Phandom when they made Dan feel so trapped in his own sexuality. I don't want to assume anything about you so I will just say; people are obsessed with putting people in boxes. I know I am guilty of being obnoxiously curious about peoples sexualities. I am bisexual and I always want to know if someone is a part of the LGBTQ+ community like me. Don't let the pressure get to you, but opening up and being vulnerable is usually way more scary in your brain than the real deal. Anyways... I am not even an avid watcher of your channel I just got sidetracked from you seeming to be at war with yourself in your head. Have a nice day!
    EDIT: Jk I realized that you have already addressed your sexuality briefly on several occasions. You do you!

    The phandom is crazy. Just let people live their lives, don't make such a huge deal about someone being gay because idk from my perspective as someone who is a gay trans man I don't want people making a huge deal abt that, like I just want to live my life we normal and I assume that's what lot of gay men want as well. To just be accepted and move on, and not have their entire Identity made out to be "he's gay uwu". So like please stop fetishizing homosexuality @phandom

    No offense to Dan but like.. why do people care at all? Unless someone is sleeping w me personally or someone I know, I just don't care. How can people write fan fiction ect about 2 people that aren't even in their personal lives

    It happens to me quite often that people just assume that i'm gay and they start gossiping about that. One woman didn't even want to believe that i'm not and she constantly reminded me that is okay. Fuck, first of all ... this doesn't concerne anyone but me and just imagine people attributing you to something you don't identify with ... almost all the time. It is fucking annoying. Even hearing people say that i might not know it yet due to the fact they knew i dated women ... I don't know why people care. I strongly believe that there are more interesting topics in life than that.

    I'm honestly ashamed to say I used to ship them. I was young and didn't realize how harmful it was. I think it's very easy to forget that youtubers are real people. I loved them so much, and just thought it would be cute if they were together. I wasn't super crazy about it, like some fans, but I did definitely ship them. I eventually took a break from watching them for awhile. I grew up, got a bit more mature and, especially after Dan's new video, I realized just how toxic and horrible it is to ship real people. But, I was once in those people's shoes, so I try not to be too hypocritical, since I shipped them once too. But I'm so glad I grew out of it, and I hope all of those people who ship them do too.

    I’m a lesbian and this has happened to me in my friend group. Me and my ex girlfriend had dated for 10 months. They were all ‘shipping’ us and eventually we broke up as they were putting too much pressure on us. But what also doesn’t help me is that I have this ‘friend’ who says she’s bi (I don’t think she is) and she asks everyone out, shops herself with everyone and she sent me this really weird TheXvid video. It was slightly perverted as well. And this was two days after me and my girlfriend broke up. She is so creepy and is ruining her friendships with everyone.

    I don't think people realise that Dan and Phil are real people with real lives. Just because they're gay and they're friends doesn't automatically mean that they are dating. Leave them alone and let them live without all the toxicity.

  • Kamaria Az-Ibo

    imma say this in the most polite way possible. this vid..i don’t completely agree it.
    1. yes shipping to a certain extent could be dangerous, but there is nothing wrong with thinking two people could be good together. as long as you don’t bother them about it. most people in the world say “oh so and so would be so cute together”. THATS ALSO SHIPPING.
    2. dan never said that “teenage girls” were what kept him from coming out all these years. it was mostly the fear of not being excepted.

    • Kamaria Az-Ibo
      Kamaria Az-Ibo 9 days ago

      i know u meant well and i truly appreciate this video as yes dnp are real people who have lives outside of youtube that are none of our business. but plz next time do a little more research because u kinda didn’t please many people of the phandom with this video. (i honestly could care less cuz i never watched ur videos in the first place, i just saw the thumbnail with dan and clicked)

    • Kamaria Az-Ibo
      Kamaria Az-Ibo 9 days ago

      a few people and putting them in the mouths of so many others
      3. fan fiction literally isn’t a problem for them they’ve made their own. they literally always say they appreciate it cuz it is literally creative writing.
      4. u making a whole video about how him coming out isn’t about phan is making it about phan. he wanted people to understand his story by telling it wholeheartedly. he mentioned phan literally twice in the entire vid. literally the entire phandom said his vid wasn’t about phan (minus some people who literally i don’t even understand them). but you accused a lot of people of this and that’s kinda messed up.
      5. (last one i promise) ur kinda making “phannies” look bad. they aren’t just people who want dan and phil to f**k, it’s legit the name of their fan base. we all(again minus a few others) congratulated dan and said how proud of him we were. the phandom (for the most part) made him feel comfortable as he needed that in his life.

    • Kamaria Az-Ibo
      Kamaria Az-Ibo 9 days ago

      and putting words into his mouth that he never said is messed up. yes people going into his personal life held him back. but it wasn’t the majority. plus ur talking about a problem that was major 7 years ago. literally anyone who says anything about them dating now gets a huge amount of backlash from the community. you are taking the words of

  • Jen and kevin Waterhouse

    Where I'm at:
    Dan and Phil have a good relationship and That's all we need to know. It may not be romantic, but it's nicr to see them happy where they are. I don't "ship" them. I'm just saying even if they wete together I'd support them just as much as I do now.

    • Olivia Paulsen
      Olivia Paulsen 10 days ago +1

      @Number 4 yeah but jus because he didn't talk about it doesn't mean he doesn't have an opinion on it. it's not imalexx's place to make a whole video about how dan feels lmao. i think shipping real people is gross, but that doesn't mean i get to talk on dan's behalf.

    • Number 4
      Number 4 11 days ago +1

      Dan isn’t speaking for himself though. He didn’t mention any pet of a relationship with Phil and neither did he so clearly it’s not something they’re comfortable with being open about. Shipping real people can be really harmful to them and any friendships or relationships they may have.

    Two gay people can live together and be soulmates without having romantic relations.
    Take Christina and Meredith in Grey's Anatomy, They are each other's people, they understand each other and help each other through life. And neither of them are Lesbian.
    Similar to Dan and Phil in the way they go about their lives.

    Gay folks relationships always tend to get fetishized by straight people of the opposite binary gender. Straight women are just as predatory and gross to gay or bi men as straight men are to lesbians and bi women. I'm honestly so over it

      CagedKitty &Friends unfortunately many bi women and even some lesbians treat queer men like objects for their own sexual fantasies/entertainment as well, not just straight women. there are many non-straight females in the phandom, but yet the very same females fetishize dan and phil the most
