I think I have some minors following me and just be careful on the internet guys. I made a lot of dumb internet mistakes as a teen and I have younger siblings that are approaching those years and it makes me worry for everyone who's around their ages.

It's easy to think you're mature for your age but just be a kid. Hold on to that for a while.

just some tips from a veteran to ward off creeps, scammers, and other online hazards:

  1. don't doxx yourself. nobody needs to know your last name. or the names of friends, family members, your school, or workplace. those last two can ruin your life if you say or do the wrong thing.
  2. don't try to get into 18+ spaces. there's nothing mystical or badass about them. you can end up with a messed up or traumatic perception of things like sex, violence, drug use, etc. and if you get caught faking your age, it'll put you and others in legal trouble.
  3. don't take sexual photos, even if you don't send them. the laws around it are dodgy, and neither your phone nor the connection between 2 phones are totally safe. it's prime blackmail material and it's not worth it!
  4. don't post photos or videos of identifiable places where you live, especially if you go there often!
  5. your photos contain EXIF data. it's mostly harmless, but it can include personal and location data. there are apps that can scrub that information, but if that sounds like too much work, fiddle with your settings to see if you can turn those 2 things off.

Also. The block button is your ultimate boundary enforcer. If you try to set boundaries and those boundaries are ignored (or worse, the other person tries to make you feel bad for or afraid of enforcing your boundaries) you are allowed to block them.

But also don't be afraid to enjoy the things in fandom spaces. Make your Ocs, awkwardly photoshop your OTPs together, and listen to fan songs on loop. Don't worry about the "cringe". Don't worry about having "mature" takes. You can still be a part of fandom! Just please be safe while doing it!
