When I was a kid, I thought of Disney as a general collection of epic cartoons that sort of came out of a wormhole or something – they’d always been and they always would be. They weren’t new or old, they were just Disney magic.

Now that I’m an adult, I think of Disney as a multinational conglomerate with a very realistic eye on monopolizing the entire entertainment industry.

But also Bambi though.

I’m not alone in my struggles with Disney fandom. My thoughts. My borderline obsessions. There are dozens like me, dozens! And many of them are hanging out on Tumblr.
