Fandoms as Help
A lot of people owe their lives to fandoms.
Having people love the same thing as you and be just a strange and crazy about something helps keep a lot of people in the clear.
It helps a lot of people make new friends on the internet while they can't make any connections with people irl (in real life).
While these tight-knit fandoms get along well with one another, they tend to fight with those who do not share their love and interest for a specific group or person.
This leads to conflicts between the fandoms and occurs often during awards season when two fandoms debate on who deserves the award.
