If you're over the age of 12 and I hear you use the word "Stan" I'mma immediately assume you're the result of not having bullying.

Grow the fuck up and talk like a normal person.

    @Demolishun afaik it's a mixture of stalking and being a fan, but I might be wrong. Twitter and tumblr teens are out of control nowadays

    Okay, I did my own LMGTFY:


    TLDR - obsessed fandom, possibly dangerously obsessed

    I know twitter stans in rl and they're the most mentally unstable people.

    I mean, you'd have to be to dedicate your life to that.

    I can't say I entirely disagree, but this has big "Old man yells at clouds" vibes

    It's not about "tHeYrE jUsT kIdS" it's about how fucking retarded these people are and act.

    @Stuxnet I've seen really 2 divergent uses at this point. There's the "twitter/tumblr stan" communities, which steer closer to the original stalker-like meaning, but in broader circles it's gotten a more "big fan" kind of meaning, in the same vein as "trekkies" or "whovians" or what have you, but without the specific domain. And like a lot of niche lingo, there's always the "uses it ironically, until at some point it stops being ironic" crowd.

    Idk what the "stalker fan" combo bullshit is but it's definitely 100% from Eminem's song "Stan" because of how crazy a fan the guy Stan was. That's the only definition I approve and accept. Kids these days smh.

    @jbrandona119 My first thought as well. The song started playing in my head as soon as I read the rant. But who knows? It could be "Satan" and they made it "short" in the most incomprehensible kind of way, as always.

    Hail Stan.
