    FANDOM Over the years since television came into the world shows came out after months and years, but over that year, some shows got more attention than any other and that started the fandom on mainly shows that ”intrigued them” and that had started the fandom. Now I wonder how were they created and why they were, not just because they just like the show or movie. How were fandoms created and why people hate them? From what I learned at first, Fandom is a word used to refer to a group composed of fans characterized by a feeling of empathy and chat with others who share a common interest.

    According to Wikipedia's general definition, a “fandom” refers to a group people whom are fans of a certain form of entertainment (i.e. a book, TV show, movie, etc).

    Throughout time, “heroes” have come and gone each leaving their mark on the world around them. A sociologist, Orrin Klapp, has noticed trends and patterns in how we as a society define our heroes and how we follow them. In the example of entertainers, he said it was their “box office (ability)” (Klapp 54) that brings in their fans and that can in turn lift them to the status of heroism. I feel it is not just the natural ability of the entertainer that elevates them to the status of hero but also…

    They perceive Brony behavior somehow detracts from a young man’s masculinity. Yet there still remain delineations about acceptable norms for being manly while still actively participating in a fandom depending on the genre.
