Sorry, I'm not running a pol on who would win in a fight, I'm talking about the fandoms (and not which one would win in a fight either). A few years ago, I got in an argument with my ex-wife, who was a big fan of Star Trek. The argument was about how being a Trekkie is a lifestyle, but being a Transformers fan (or junkie and she called me) is just that, a fan. I couldn't begin to tell her how offended I was by the slight. What makes one a lifestyle while the other is just for kids? Both have a long history with established, interesting characters, so what's the difference? So I guess my question to you all is do you think there's a difference between us "Transformers junkies" and all the Trekkies and Warsies (I guess that's the Star Wars fandom name)? Do you think being a Transformers fan is a lifestyle?
