oh come on Wapanese..Weeaboo?? Who cares?!?!
I personally don't find anything wrong with taking a liking to Japanese Culture or Anime or their Language. I show interest in it cause its different from my own. I want to learn the language cause i think its fun, and i watch anime cause i like it...thats all there is to it.
Why dont you look at it this way, maybe there are people who are really learning Japanese, say, so they can understand without the subtitles... and by posting their messages half in Japanese and half english, they're just trying to use the words more frequently. If someone doesn't like such comments, don't read them. As simple as that. Its just a question of being tolerant thats all.

Not necessarily. I mean, a lot of people like being categorized under geek, because of their obsessions over anime, video games, etc. So why should wapanese be offensive?

I guess I can see why weeaboo is offensive, after all, the topic poster said weeaboos are classified as people who can't tell a good anime nor bad anime a part, someone who says their fluent in Japanese because they watch anime, and someone who is ignorant of Japanese culture. So that is offensive, but the term wapanese isn't, because that's just an obession over Japanese culture.



Since you stated yourself that you are obsessed with Japanese culture, you wouldn't understand that wapanese is meant as an offense as well...Being "obsessed" with it, just means you are not just a harmless person who is interested in Japanese culture, but that you are failing to notice that it's just a society with as much negative aspects as any other. It's not all Pocky and cat ears >_> A geek is not trying to be someone else at least.


but who really thinks that japan is an ideal land of perfection, full of pocky and panty shots? are there really people who think that? of course there are problems in japan, as there are anywhere. and you can get pocky here btw, so that's not really a draw haha.

i for one am not trying to be someone else (hey, i am one of the few people here who actually uses a picture of MYSELF for an avatar haha), i am just trying to add to the collective knowledge & experience that makes up my personality. i am a geek, and a nerd, and i am very nosy and love to learn new things.

I really don't see what is wrong with loving another country, such as Japan. I know so many people who say stuff like "America is the best country", and how that I shouldn't go to Japan, and should just stay in America. It's hypocrytical. America is not the best country, so why can't I move away from it. I prefer Japan's culture over America's, is there something wrong with that? Do I have to take pride in my country, and demean all other countries because I was born in America? One country that can be the best for one person, doesn't neccisarily make it the best for another. I don't like it how people demean others for becoming obsessed with another culture, because to me it just shows how prideful they are of their own country. There's nothing wrong with loving your country, but you shouldn't demean other countries because of it.

I know there is a lot wrong with Japan... Japan's christianity rate is very low, many people there are not saved


btw i kind of think it is a bit insulting to people who practice religions other than christianity to put not being christian under the category of what is 'wrong' with japan.

OMg! I know a weaboo! (Im not a weaboo btw) It would be offending to them but its a harsh truth, especially for this girl. She keeps telling me that shes soo obsessed with Japanese stuff, manga and anime and stuff... And she said, she likes asian stuff too...
~First, I explained to her, how Japan is part of asia.
~Then I asked her, "Now, if you really are obsesed with these stuff, where is Japan? Or just tell me Asia in particular.

Her Answer:

Umm, Isnt that like in, somewhere in Europe, right?


(It was very annoying since she had this really sharp and loud voice.)(Ugh)
```````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````
~There is also nothing wrong on being obsessed with country that is not your birthplace, but being like that girl, who thinks Japan is in Europe. That's way too much.
~Also, some people dont use their real pictures since, they dont want to exploit themselves to the internet public. You dont know the dangers of the internet. (Maybe you do, but whatever)
~ I havent used that term to demean anyone nor will I ever use it.
~About the religion thing, I seem to have passed by someone talking bout it. Practicing other religion isnt bad at all, I mean, are you sure, your religion is right? Im catholic, and Im pretty sure, that there are mishaps and confusing things on some issues.

^^ I believe anyone who is not saved will go to Hell. That's a bad thing, and I wouldn't never want that to happen. So what's wrong with me thinking that a lot of people in Japan not being saved from their sins as a bad thing? Should I think that them going to Hell is a good thing? Of course not! So to me, it is a negative side of Japan, because of what I believe. I'm not insulting them, I'm just worried for them. Just like how I'm worried about most of my friends, because most of them aren't christian. Why would I insult my friends for not being christian? I'm simply worried for them, because I worry that they might not become saved. That's all.

Christian? It is referred to any religious group or any person who belive in christ.
~First, other christians, segregate catholics from them. Point: Catholics believe in christ (Wouldnt that make them christians?).
~Second, being a christian is not an ultimate thing. Again, how are you sure, your gonna be saved?

~Now, Why are we discussing about religion. This is supposed to be about "weaboo"~

^^ If you seriously want my opinions on those, pm me, but I'm not going to post a response because it's way too far off topic. I was simply replying to someone's question who took a setence I had in an explanation I had given when someone told me I can't say whether or not wapanese is offensive because I'm obsessed with Japan, and the person assumed I thought Japan was perfect, when in reality I know that no country is perfect. I'm sorry for leading this topic off-topic. Let's get back on topic.

eh, I should just not post anymore. All it leads to is assumptions, arguements, frustrations, and pointlessness. I'll stick to posting in the drama section for now on.
