So if getting a fast lens runs me the risk of getting my photos out of focus why is YouTube so adamant about fast glass and bokeh?

First, YT is populated by lots of people who don't know what they are talking about.

100%. Also filled with people giving opinions on products that they don't use or own, but have only fiddled with it for a short time. I'm glad you've mentioned YT realistically.

Bokeh looks cool

Bokeh doesn't mean blur ...

It needed to be said, and needs to be repeated.

Bokeh is the quality of the blurred areas - are they smooth or rough, what shape are out-of-focus circles and so on.

This is an example of harsh bokeh, where the "circles" are actually rather jagged.

I'm glad you brought this to people's attention.
