Yes, I was referring to Peter Pan syndrome, and I know doesn't typically involve being a peter pan fan. It was meant to be humorous. The way the oc referenced it as the sponge bob tattoo being a statement that she'll never grow up, like an absolute. Spongebob = icon of peter pan syndrome. Made me think of spongebob singing "I won't grow up, I'll never grow up!" Also? I enjoy opportunities to link to randy constan, remind people he's still alive, even though his bowl cut is likely a wig now, and it probably takes him much longer to pull on the peter pan tights.Are you referring to Peter Pan syndrome? Because that diagnosis doesn't involve an actual obsession with Peter Pan except for old man Randy's case. It's not like having an obsession with Spongebob is a sign of a nu-Peter Pan syndrome. Becky doesn't have an obsession with Spongebob, or one single cartoon or band either. She likes Spongebob but it's not to an autistic level.
Of course her interests in vidya, cartoons and graphic tees are childish. Not going to argue that. But someone can have childish interests and be an adult the rest of the day. Becky does not.
Spongebob doesn't have to mean that, of course. Marc Jacobs has a spongebob tattoo and various other iconic, pop characters (I think he has the M&M characters), items and even movie scenes.
