    The thing is I like writing fanfiction so do many other people but I draw the line at real people fictional characters is fine because they are obviously fictional and you don't hurt people by Googling information if you do that with someone real I have no empathy for you if you dig into someone's personal life for your own enjoyment you disgust me

    Shipping culture really makes me cringe, especially when it's fuckin 24 year old grown women or sum shit. But honestly most shippers are like 12-16 or somethin and tbh I don't think that's creepy bc they're kids and they don't really understand that it's inappropriate. Like 18+ year olds who ship real people and pry into their lives are gross, but when people publicly attack children, tweens and teenagers who ship people THAT seems weirder to me imo. anyway Good video dude and I 100% agree!

    There is definitely a line with shipping people, if you just say they would be cute together that’s fine in my books but if you are angry that they aren’t together and harassing them it’s not fair and can destroy relationships.

    I came here praying no one would hate on dan and I’m not dissatisfied. Because I love Dan and Phil both so much.

    I think you’ve made a good point but it’s not just on the internet I’m afraid to say I’m bi instead of saying I’m a gay because as soon as I came out people were wondering who am I going out with and all I got were questions asking oh are you going out with blank and I said no
    Also a new boy got a roomer saying he was going out with my friend which weren’t true

    What is there to talk about?

  • Ivebeeenthinkntomuch YT

    Okay so I just deleted my comment because like... people are negative and honestly just please everyone stop assuming things. Dan is a real person and it’s demeaning to take his struggle and say “omg phan is confirmed” that’s not what the point of that video was, you are literally destroying the whole point of his video

    I used to like fanfics up until I realized “this genuinely affects those it’s written about.” And that was when I stopped shopping Dan and Phil. I stopped using Phan when talking about them. I rarely read fanfics anymore and if I do it’s around fictional characters (Harry Potter and Twilight mostly)

    honestly same. like I ship them but I’d never be intrusive about it. that’s a terrible thing to do. don’t write creepy fan fiction, don’t comment “OMG PHAN IS REAL!!!” under every video, don’t be creepy. that’s disgusting.

    one of my ex friends fetishized gays and it made me incredibly uncomfortable, I myself am gay and she went out of her way to make friends that are gay. She used to flex the fact that she had gay friends and would tell everybody that i was gay essentially outing me. She also is straight but hates straights. it was incredibly strange but the main thing that still keeps me up at night is how she told everyone i was gay even tho i trusted her with my secrets. I just wasn’t ready. Rant over

      i’ve been a supporter of dan and phil for 5 years, and have never once written the “sex fanfiction” (and dan said he’s okay with fanfiction about him so that’s a non-issue anyway) nor am i crazy. as a young adult who is queer, dan’s story gives me hope for the future as an lgbtq person, as does his relationship with phil. i’m not sure why you are so determined to describe dan and phil’s relationship as a “beautiful friendship” when dan clearly states in his video that him and phil were “more than friends” and take his statement that the relationship was “more than just romantic” as being “beyond romantic” (inferring platonic) , but i really don’t dan would appreciate you using his coming out to push this agenda, when clearly he meant to subtly come out about his romantic relationship with phil in this brief section of his video, as well as demonstrate the importance of one person showing you support. i also don’t think he would approve of you demonising his supportive and loyal fanbase, the majority of whom are queer themselves, by painting them as creepy and invasive “phangirls” who sexualise dan and phil’s relationship.

    When people are fetishised for their sexuality it makes them. Feel like people around them or their fans value them for nothing more than fuel for fanfics and erotic fantasies. Girls who fetishise gay men, or even straight men in gay relationships, are the equivalent of straight men wanting to have a bisexual girlfriend so they can have a fantasy threesome, or wanting to watch two lesbians fuck.

    Yeah, you are right, wanting to look inside someone private life is annoying and can make you feel very uncomfortable, but in my personal case I did look at someone sexuality on Google or clinching on videos with "gay" in the title because I like the feeling of not being alone, seeing people having the same experience and struggles as me... even if they live in the other part of the world I can relate with them through their sexuality.

    On the game Dead By Daylight there is a perk called kindred and it allows people to see where each other are. A soul mate does not mean lovers it can mean friends who see eye to eye and connect on a different level offer then love. So when Alex said that don’t take that the wrong way.

    Also go subscribe for shit. That’s right I did just plug my TheXvid channel that has like no subs and I plugged it on a comment which was supposed to correct people. Get over it I’m sad :).

    Dan's video meant a lot to me, because the part about saying he's bi just to not have to be seen gay moved something in me and brought me a step closer to telling my mom that I'm not into guys. And seeing people turn the whole video around so it's just about their relationship and what they are to each other made me really sad.

    i love dan, i love phil, but the phandom is a very scary place and thats why i go nowhere near it.
    edit: even if dan and phil are together or were together who cares just enjoy the content, we've been enjoying the content with us knowing them as straight, it shouldn't change because they announce they're gay. it also shouldn't change if they announce they had/have relations. boom.

    Legit I’m so damn tired of random ass people commenting weird yaoi/fanfiction shit whenever I post an Instagram picture with my boyfriend. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TALKING ABOUT THIS. Everyone seems to be ignoring this issue, I was starting to feel like it was just me who was effected. It means so much that you’re using your platform to bring light to this issue.

    i agree that invading dan and phil's privacy is horrible and so is "confirming" that phan is real but you'd have to be part of the phandom to understand that dan and phil don't mind the ship or phanfics or phanart unless it goes way too far. for example; the incident in 2012 where the phandom literally drove dan insane with the ship. this fandom is honestly very persistent with these sorts of things though you can't fully hate us because we were the ones the have really helped dan in the long run as well as phil helping him as well of course

    I remember when I was friends with this guy in high school and we were like extremely close and he was touchy so he would always hold my hand and sit in my lap and our friends jokingly started shipping us which was fine but then the fujoshis of the school got word there were two gay dudes holding hands and it blew up to the point three years later I'm uncomfortable to even sit close to one of my guy friends, and even then I can't even begin to fathom what Dan and Phil have gone through emotionally with their friendship, and it baffles me more that people can see and hear the damage they caused and still think it's ok =/

  • daughter of posiedon god of the sea

    I read fanfiction but... like, they have said they were fine with it, I don’t read smut (that’s kind of creepy tbh) and I would just like to also say, I don’t even really read it in the context about them, I just want something to imagine myself being able to feel. I want the feeling of love like fanfiction, but x readers are just terrible. If either of them ever, and I mean ever, said that they were uncomfortable with fanfiction I would stop reading it. I absolutely did not only take the Dan and Phil maybe dating from this video, that was barely a minute of the video. You can read fanfiction and still be a good person. AND, please, don’t just pin all this on one age and gender. It’s not just teenage girls. That’s messed up and makes me feel like a dick for just being a female in the age range of 13-17. I’m so proud of Dan. And Phil too. They have helped me so much with my sexuality.

  • banana fish

    What really had me bothered is when i hopped onto tumblr to see what people were saying and there was a bunch of posts by phans saying stuff like: "if you keep saying that dan and phil arent confirmed to be boyfriends then youre homophobic" and "people who told shippers to stop shipping dan and phil must feel stupid now" and "every moment between dan and phil in their old videos is different now because its confirmed romantic or sexual". Like bruh. No. Stop obsessing and acting like his coming out is justification for you to vocalize your creepy fantasies.

    I fucking cried when I watched that video because just as Alex said, Dan put into words something that I’ve been struggling with for years and made me finally feel like I wasn’t alone and I love that dan did that because without that video I would not be in a good place and people shouldn’t push TheXvidrs into feeling like they can’t be honest about their sexuality because when there’s no representation young lgbtq+ people feel so much more alone

    its okay to ship real people, as long as you keep in mind that they're actual human beings with feelings and don't write smut about them, don't attack them with questions about said ship, don't harass them and PLEASE don't tag them in posts you make about them. honestly, if you think two people look cute together, that's perfectly fine. feteshising them and trying to turn it into a thing, ruining certain aspects of their life is NOT thank you for coming to my ted talk
