i tend to just read or watch whatever i like and go down whatever path that would take me though that being said even as a child my interest aalways leaned in toward the macabre dark and more mature themed so to speak so probably my thoughts on the matter should be totally disregarded but i think i m on a similar page

i don't wanna sound mean spirited here, but i genuinely dunno how some adults can consume solely children's media without getting at least a little tired


I couldn't consume solely children's media as a child without getting tired.

Now just look at my avatar.

tfw watching princess mononoke as a kid made me feel like an edgy adult bc of all the gore.

i think there are reasons someone might only be comfortable consuming children's media, so i don't inherently see an issue in it. could end up being a problem if you're using it as an excuse not to engage with the world around you, but that's honestly none of my business. adult media can still be used as an excuse to avoid responsibilities.

"children's" and "adult's" media feels like a somewhat arbitrary category to me. the categories seem to be used more for advertising than anything. i'd prefer to see a rating system that focuses more on giving a warning about potentially disturbing content instead of deciding something is purely for adults or children.


edit: i do want to make it clear that i think it's fine if as an adult, you don't like children's media!

Me, I just love animation that’s all, kids or not, for me it don’t matter, if it’s great who it’s for should not be important and live action don’t make everything better, in fact I consider especially with the remake trend that it make it worse. I hate what «**adult**» animation generally mean, I want a compelling narrative with gorgeous art not something hideous, crude and gross with hyper violence and sex..I’ll rather get more Primal or Castlevania(Netflix) so yes, what I do watch do end up being often for «**kids**» because that’s the sad state of animation in general.

This is far from the only decider of what's better for which audience. My favorite example of this is A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.

It's literally a movie about Mr. Rogers. There's very little violence (I think a guy gets punched once), and no profanity or sexual content at all from what I remember. On the surface, it's one of the cleanest live action movies to come out in the past decade. Yet I would never call it suitable for children, because the plot and themes are too complex for children to understand or engage with. It's an adult's movie through and through, no question about it.

I think children's and adult's media are pretty appropriate descriptions most of the time.

There's not really a fine line between what's "for children" and "for adults" outside of marketing, no, and I don't think how graphic a work is should be positively (or negatively) correlated with any real measure of maturity. But even with the limitations of sorting in that way, I feel like you can at least make some sort of rough distinction enough to describe, I dunno, adults who seem to exclusively read and talk about YA novels? If that makes any sense. And unless it manifests into some sort of hostility towards stuff outside your scope, there's nothing necessarily wrong with that, but my point is that it seems like it would get exhausting limiting yourself to that. Maybe you could draw a connection from this to a more general resistance to what's seen as "traditionally" adult? Like anecdotally, from years of being on this site and other similar kind of fan circles, I've noticed this sort of outright mistrust towards live action films (maybe excluding big tent Hollywood blockbusters?), seemingly put on as a defense mechanism against the mainstream's nose-thumbing towards less-accepted forms of media/genres like animation, video games, SFF, etc. And while I can sympathize with that, as well as more personal reasons for sticking to one's comfort zone, I mean what I'm saying less as a judgment of character, or even a broad judgement on the content people enjoy (I think many things that are 'escapist' or 'for children' are valuable, and media taste =/= someone's worth as a person of course), than a kind of general confusion. I don't take issue with someone sticking to what they like, I just don't get how not branching out in some way doesn't eventually get tiring.

Knowing that I have no idea how translating myself even work(aside for doing the translation), would having someone do it for me be better? Even being bilingual, I admit of being worried of making mistakes that a native english speaker won’t do as french is my native language.

Will have to find some sheets of paper to write the translation, then type into Word(with likely a folder for the english version so I know what’s what and don’t post the wrong version in the french story)(however how can I show it? I don’t see a way to send files.) For the place, as FF.net is a mess to use as it throw everything together, will use archive of our own instead as it’s simpler.
