Default Did it ever become an issue to Beatle fangirls which is their favorite Beatle?

I mean did they fight just because of that simple reason? Did it ever become an issue in the fandom? If so, did they evolve into more mature beings?

I'm just contemplating about several things and about today's generation.

What a silly thing to fight about. Individual taste is individual taste and is not right or wrong.

I understand what you mean. I was just assessing if there were similar instances in the past because some of the fan girls of some boy bands today fight over a silly thing such as that. I am sorry for such a silly question.

When I was interviewing fans for my book, "Happiness is Seeing the Beatles," this was something that came up a few times. Typically in a group of 4 girls, they would each pick one Beatle to be their favorite. Your best friend and you would never have the same favorite.

You have to remember that we are talking about 11-14 year old girls here. And developmentally females (and some males) at that age go through a stage where they "fall in love" with someone that is unobtainable. So those girls in 1964 that were "Paul girls" truly felt that they were going to marry Mr. McCartney someday. So to have your friend believe the same thing, was just unheard of.

Not a silly question at all to me! I love the history of the Beatle fans. I think it is fascinating.
