Why do so many people these days tie their sense of self-worth to fictional media? - The phenomenon of consooming man children


Fair enough. What do you think I'm missing?
In writing this post, I never intended to defend Disney or any of the corporations that produce the media that I mentioned. In fact, I was critical of how they encourage the unhealthy obsession consoomers have with said media, and I’d go as far as to say that Disney is the corporation whose practices are the most egregious in this regard. At this point, they don’t care about artistic integrity, just pushing out a line of homogenized products for their fanbase to lap up. And the fact that they own so many assets entertainment-wise and keep expanding their reach further and further just means that we’ll be seeing more of this crap in the future.
