I think people insult Anime Fans because they believe that all anime is hentai or is perverted, even though not all anime are like that.

Ignorance on one side not fully understanding the fandom as a whole I think...also, some people like to make themselves feel better by mocking another group of people for no reason. Best way to deal with it? Don't let it get to you and continuing enjoying anime. I've been the subject of criticism myself, even more so considering I also cross-play but I just shrug it off and continue going about my business. The 'haters' thrive on getting any sort of reaction so to ignore them is to deny them any sort of satisfaction they might get from trolling as it were

People like that aren't worth dealing with. It kind of ties in with the 'people fear what they don't understand' but instead of fear it's rejection. If they won't take the time to remotely understand the medium, why should you take the time to listen to their shit? You shouldn't, the best advice is to ignore them. Anyone who dislikes you for what you watch is a piece of crap who isn't worth the time of day.

Ignorance is the basis for all misunderstanding.

It's not people insulting anime fans. It's people insulting people. They get a rush from the illusion of them having power over others. They don't really have power over you, so ignoring them and not letting it get to you breaks the illusion for them. People are dicks, leave them to wallow in their own miserable existence and don't let it affect yours.

Actually furries creep me out. Don't worry, I don't make fun of them. I just distance myself from them. I am usually open to most types of things. Neither Yuri no Yaoi bother me. Furries though, I dunno, there is just something about them, something that gives me chills.

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 know. Why can't Anime Fans Respect, Furries, Bronies, or Trekkies.





i respect everyone, i respect Furries, Bronies and Trekkies in fact i know people in my own Family who Trekkies and I respect them.

Do whatever, just don't give them the satisfaction of a reaction. That way all they achieve is wasting their breath and will annoy them more than anything.

Back in the day. Furries and Anime fans shared the same unofficial spaces in the backrooms of Sci Fi and comic Conventions. Now anime is nearly mainstream and the anime fans seem to want to throw furries under the bus.

Have you actually talked to any furries?

Closed minded people will very often put down anything that isn't normal.

Watching a sports game while having a beer is "normal", while Anime and cosplaying is "not normal".

People nowadays are very, very ignorant. I have only recently began watching anime, because i recently finished school. I was never brave enough to watch anime, or confess to watching it, in school. I felt like i would be intimidated by it, i would be picked out and made a mockery of because i like something that isn't the same as what everyone else likes.

It's quite simple, people are idiots. Anything new or different is always put down, and that has happened many a time. I am a dubstep fan, and i get put down by my music taste, i am learning to program, so apparently i am just a spotty fat kid in front of a computer, i am an anime fan, so apparently, i am a perv.

Come on society, stop judging things because it is not the norm!
