I believe I just figured out why it disturbs me when I hear that someone is a “fan” of someone else so much that they devote time, money, and resources in the pursuit of said fandom.

The words “stalk” and “fan” are remarkably similar.

I believe the only difference between stalking someone and being a fan of someone is the fact that being a fan can be done in public.
