Would you consider someone a pervert for watching harem, ecchi, yuri etc... anime?

Considering the yuri genre is not inherently focused upon the sexual aspects of lesbian relationships I can't see a particularly strong argument that consumption of yuri works is a sufficient basis to call people perverts. Furthermore, the idea that consuming sexually charged works is sufficient grounds to consider the consumer perverted is questionable as well. The term "pervert" is supposed to have a strong charge, it's supposed to refer to things which are so far removed from social conventions as to be considered seriously problematic for either society at large, the person accused of perversion, or both at once. The same applies to the term "deviant".

All told, the whole "You watch harem/ecchi/yuri/yaoi, therefore you're a pervert!" thing seems pretty dubious, being both a clear commission of the hasty generalization fallacy and a dilution of the term "pervert" to near obsolescence.

uh... yeah doesn't mean a person is good/bad for watching it, just means a person is a perv which most of us are to some extent.

"Perversion is a type of human behavior that deviates from that which is understood to be orthodox or normal.
Although the term perversion can refer to a variety of forms of deviation, it is most often used to describe sexual behaviors that are considered particularly abnormal, repulsive or obsessive.
Perversion differs from deviant behavior, in that the latter covers areas of behavior (such as petty crime) for which perversion would be too strong a term."

So no; watching cartoon boobs does not make you a pervert. Mild deviant maybe lol but not a pervert.

hahahahhaha lol. This thread made me laugh when I first saw it.
I am totally not a fan of ecchi stuff. But I do watch some harems. Does that make me a pervert? No (At least, not a hardcore pervert). I mean, I watched Seitokai Yakuindomo, and that was FILLED with dirty perverted sex jokes, but I wouldn't classify myself as one. But maybe its also because I don't just watch only harems or whatever. I also watch other genres too, like action. So no, I wouldn't call someone a pervert for watching these animes (not unless that's ALL you watch, cuz if it is, then I might have to reconsider).

I consider it normal. Isn't everyone just nothing but perverts? Even people who claim they are not perverts are just closet perverts (just open their closet lol).

I think if you DON'T watch the occasional harem, ecchi, hentai, yuri,etc you are not normal. I also believe that most people who claim to never watch such shows are lying sacks of sh*t. We all are a bit pervy and like a good sexual romp, in one form or another.

I wouldn't consider them a pervert, but more like a companion. It doesn't matter anyway, we're all a little bit ra--i mean perverted in some way or form :3

You're asking a bunch of ecchi and harem watching pervs if watching ecchi and harem makes you a perv?

What kind of responses did you expect? LOL!

Yes, it makes you a perv. But we all are. Welcome to the club.

As someone who isn't an avid fan of the genres mentioned (outsider), sure you're perverted by most others standards, but that in itself isn't bad. I watch porn (shock and awe) which I consider more 'perverted' than 2D cleavage. Of course it gets complicated when you start to factor in age, mental state, whether there is a disconnect between fantasy and reality for that person, what the scene in the show implies, etc.

For the most part however I don't care too much. I've enjoyed Kill la Kill and Monogatari Series which I think some consider ecchi or harem. Watch what you enjoy and as long as it doesn't harm you or others around then I think it's alright.

Again I know people who think that if people watch the above said anime types they are perverts... and well I watch those animes a lot, so am I a perv? Cause I wouldnt consider myself one...


There isn't a single area of this world that doesn't contain some sort of perversion. That being said, the degree of pervert you are for watching this genre of anime, is very minimal. Welcome to the anime world, its 80% ecchi. *holds up a hand for a hi-5*

I consider them honest with very ambitious sexual desires.
