I don't really disagree with the larger point you're trying to make, but I think "edgy millennial thing" is a weird phrase to ascribe to a very human reaction. If anything, boomers (and zoomers) are way more likely to implode when met with any sort of prolonged negativity (in different ways, lol).IMO there's a contingent of bread tube whose content or philosophy is centered on personality, and perhaps having also enjoyed a degree of celebration and its unique associated costs, have doubled down on the vagaries of self and somewhat atomized perspective to their detriment. I can totally appreciate that a whole bunch of disproportionate hate can maybe make one's senses go a little haywire. I also just think that culture moves really fast now and that in retrospect she shouldn't have been elevated so high in the first place, because it's not really like she ever was that substantive to begin with ideologically, and her stuff is kind of about her. But I'm also kind of sick of this edgy millennial thing of not looking all that far beyond themselves and then suffering serious injury to their person when someone finds an issue with something that they say. I feel like I'm too old to care about personalities, I'd rather just not have to hear about this shit. But that just seems really hard to avoid. Like if your primary appeal is based in personality then you're courting an appeal that's fundamentally volatile because it's essentially based in charm or image than anything all that valuable (imo).
