I Love Anime and Manga and i love to Cosplay and I always have ever since I was Kid, over the years growing up people would treat me like shit and bully me just for being a Fan of Anime, i'm now 27 years old and i got a job and a apartment and i still get treated like shit just for being a Anime Fan people call me Weeaboo,stupid retarded all kinds of names, my next door neighbor calls me a weeaboo when i go to work and it pisses me off so why do people insult Anime Fans? why can't they just respect us and treat Anime Fans with respect? i understand some people don't like Anime but they don't have to insult people and bully people who do like it, i love Anime and i'm very passionate about Anime i just wish these kinds of people would back off and stop.

sorry about some of the language by the way, i just wanted to get this out of my system because this is something that has been bothering me for a long time.

I don't even know what a weeaboo is...lol. But yeah, I get where you're coming from. They pretty much put us on the same level as the brony fandom for fucks sake. I'm going to have to agree with BeyondTheGrave. It's just sheer ignorance of the Japanese culture.

Unfortunately, it's always easy to target the "other". Using terms like weeaboo to insult another, or to groups like furries by using their own fandom name as an insult, it's quite common.

My favorite approach has always been to not let it get to me. When it's words alone, happily standing while in cosplay in front of someone who tried to use it as an insult, or watching anime in full view, that's my favorite revenge. And it sometimes gets people to think.. or even convert over to watching anime as well.

Why do people insult Anime Fans? The answer is easy,
They think we are too old to watch cartoons.

Because it lets them feel superior by comparison without putting any work into actually bettering themselves.

People insult other people over many things.

People have different tastes, and weaker people judge and insult based off tastes.

Do not mind them, and enjoy what you enjoy.

Don't repay ignorance with more ignorance. All of those shows are excellent examples of good American media. Blurting out that American shows are stupid is just as low as someone mocking your taste for anime.

In regards to the OP, if your neighbor seems like a rational person capable of human kindness, I suggest politely expressing your discontent. However, if he strikes you as the belligerent type just ignore the guy move on with your life. It is my honest belief that most people will not mock you for your taste in media. Don't let one or two ***holes shape your view of non-anime watchers.

its all opinion based

i could never get into those shows

the only things i could have gotten into was Anime that's about it nothing else really entertains me as much

and

every person reacts differently in a situation than they say they would when they write about it ~~~ oh i hate psychology so much & statistics prove nothing in my eyes

People seem to like being assholes to others who don't follow their exact lifestyle.The People who are like that do not have an opinion worth caring about,and should just be ignored/told off.
