Hey, everyone. I was wondering whether or not you guys think there might be some potential for an entry about fandoms that get mixed up by non-fans. What brought this to mind was the “Jedi Mind Meld” thing that’s been trending. Just thought that that particular event touched on a broader topic that might have a place being documented here. I just joined today, though, so I’m appealing to the more experienced members of this community: is this idea worth pursuing/has it already been done? (I’ve been checking some, and it doesn’t look like there’s an outright entry on this site dealing with it).
I think that while an “accidental fandom mixup” is indeed a THING, I don’t think it qualifies as a meme, or an event, or a person, or a site, etc. It’s not trending, unless you mean to chronicle people’s reactions to specific gaffes.
Though “Accidental Ignorance Exposure” seems to happen all the time, it’s where “Idiot Nerd Girl” comes from, so there might be something there.
