>having parasocial relationships with ANYONE except fictional characters

Terrible idea. I have a lot of SJWs who use youtubers to fill the void left by real relationships in their lives, and they've all gotten their hearts broken when those youtubers said one unprogressive thing or another.

Standard lolcow shit, like Contrapoints refusing to validate enbies and PewDiePie paying Indians to hate Jews. It's funny when you're not attached to them. But if you've built a relationship with these people in your head and then it turns out they're not their character, it's a crushing disappointment.

Lmao what the fuck. I get doing it with 2D where you have absolute control, but doing it with real people is just retarded. The safest bet with real people would be shit like K-pop idols who have little freedom of opinion.
