i'm afraid the uk it certainly has been seen that way since its conception
From what I know (mostly America), it used to be normal Techno music. But who gives a **** anyway lets just get rid of that HU Bieber's relation and I don't care how childish people consider it as long as I can have normal ravers.
By the way, what do your people call childish again?
(Some people call this form of Hardstyle, some Hard Trance, and some (like me) Hands Up.)

That Justin Fletcher's track, in fact, is not that childish at all. The thing is about "propaganda": it's their favourite pedophile dancing and pedo-ish singing to kids-appealing kick+bass line with simple cachy euro-ish melodies (thats not happy HU-sort) in a colorful childish video. If, for exmaple, the video was different, less kids would like this, and people would consider it less childish. Vocal sounds seriously childish, so add a female vocal instead of pedobear's and it can even be considered by, for example, DJ Magix - a commercial HU DJ.

Justin Fletcher track in first post is not that childish on it's own. What makes it really childish is JF's voice, childish music video and fact that the track was meant to be childish.

haha of course. Just that some elements increase the chance for something to sound childish.
EDIT: Also, considering there are different forms of Handsup, this one is not theoretically sortable under happy HU, which is most likely to sound childish to people. In fact, this would be HU (or HS or JS, whatever) following classic Eurodance tradition (from it's electronic era). But still, video and propaganda give a different message
