Two-part unpopular opinion: I actually like Tyler's videos, they grew on me after watching them for a while, but I feel like her channel is tainting the western comm, so to speak. For some strange reason her channel attracts a lot of people who aren't lolitas, who take her word as god, and then flood here and every other online lolita comm when they're either lolitas at heart, larpers, or awful newbs who don't want to improve because they think they've got it set due to Tyler. Cgl has always had roleplayers/larpers, and since r9k came back we have lots of robot-trannies/scrotes too, but there seem to be a lot of summerfags that sound exactly like the comment section on Tyler's videos and it's fucking infuriating sometimes, especially in coord-based threads because these non-lolitas are only exposed to Tyler's AP style sweet so they flood discussions about other styles with tons of misinformed comments. Also I've noticed recently the generals have been polluted with lwln plot twisted into ~personal stories~ and it shuts down actual discussion about lolita faster than tranny- or fatty-chan bait. Tyler is also getting more hugboxy like Lor (not as bad yet but I don't watch Lor), and while some of it I agree with, it's fueling this fire harder in a way that I think she didn't anticipate, it's giving people false confidence to settle for ita instead of inspire to be the best lolita they can be, and then the western comm gets diluted to people who are really just a fan of a show than the fashion itself. Sorry for the incoherent rant, this shit has been bothering me for a while to the point I can't even accurately describe what makes me mad. I've gone through this with retro gaming and the popularity of avgn, so maybe my brain has given up after seeing this happen in another hobby I thought would be safe from half-baked know-it-alls because they've watched a few yt vids.
