I always figured it was that it's a cartoon thing. Everyone here and myself know the differences between Anime and cartoons as we as viewers define it and maybe even as those who "grew up" would lump everything together as generic cartoons. I don't talk to anyone in public about anime as they would rather talk about the next time they're going to drink, and that's alright with them. If they make fun of what I watch then I'd make fun of them being a lush.

It's because of those awkward moments where you're watching an anime and suddenly it's depicting something like two children, related by blood, who kiss each other with overly visible spittle. Oh god, why. This isn't what I signed up for.

Also, because people like me decide to show them Excel Saga first.

But seriously, it's mostly the child pornography and such.

Because close-minded jackasses despise anything that comes from outside of their own ignorant little world. It's not one group of people that does this, it is many.

I don't think anime is frowned upon; it's just an interest that a subgroup of people enjoy; granted, the subculture itself is steadily growing.
It's like basketball. A certain group of people like it, a large group of people hate it. For me, I could care less about sports.....but I have friends who are super into it, so I try to respect their interests as much as possible. Thankfully, those same people who are into things that I'm not into try to be courteous with my interests as well. Every hobby, or interest, has a fair number of haters. There will be people who will blast you for it; when that happens to me, I just simply ignore it. After a while, they give up, because they come to realize that I'm not really interested in what they say or do.
