Proud fangirl right here :)

Of course people are going to judge what you like to watch, but no matter what you do SOMEONE somewhere is judging the crap outta you! So why not do wht you want and let them judge for that(:

Therefore i am not afraid to be a proud loud fangirl of BL <3 <3 <3

My quote boxes got mixed up with other peoples when I put spoiler tags in. (I am the one that said it was beautiful btw who cares ) Anyhow, I suppose anything taken out of moderation is gross, esp fandom.

Don't get me wrong. I love YC. There's some wild stuff that goes done there. The Bishounen Bingo...the auction...all good stuff. Saw a woman with a hat that said "Smile! You're someone's reason to masturbate".

Also, this is what I received in my goodie bag...



ok i know yaoi is a huge thing but a yaoicon?

i'm actually kinda interested

I'm quite the opposite; I tend to keep a lot of secrets. Not a single one of my friends is aware of the fact that I like anime (well, there's one or two exceptions, but yeah). I'm actually a bit proud of that fact, given that I've been watching anime since the age of 8.

Fandom is to appreciate something, obsession is crossing the line.

I do slot of blogging, typical girl thing right lol, and I just blogged about this topic! Its really understandable why a lot of people don't like to show others they like anime or their types of anime they prefer. It's an interest that gets bad rep for people who enjoy it. But sometimes it's just something you like to keep to yourself (: I'll keep it to myself as well unless someone asks me about it, then I don't really see the need to move mountains keeping it to myself lol

You ever do MBTI? or at least have a sense of how extroverted you are? just curious. I wouldn't be surprised if part of what you're talking about, overtly identifying yourself with a fandom, isn't in some part a trait of extroversion, and how much group identity means to you or other more overt fans.

I only give my opinion and enjoy talking to others about various things over the Internet. I guess some would say that would be identified as an extrovert. Yes, I enjoy being part of a fandom and talking about it with other people but isn't it a little self proclaimed to assume someone is that way because of enjoying their social enviroment? Being overt about things does not mean it should be catagorized into the extroversion shelf. Am I wrong?

Fans period can be scary. Doesn't matter what gender, race, or cultural origin. Though I do have to admit that some fandoms have a higher chance of hosting the more fanatical type than others. I know this from experience.

Heck, some weird guy stalked my friend at AX just this past year because he dressed up as Casey Jones from TMNT. The crazies cross all sorts of lines. All this said, if you like something, go for it, just try not to make it at the expense of others.

I have a feeling I've said similar things to this somewhere else in the forum before.

Sorry to have been offensive. It was just a hypothesis. It can be right or wrong, and I didn't mean to assert it as being right. , I just was thinking of it from another angle, and trying to figure out why some people are so adamant about their fandom, while others, like myself, are not.

My theory was that basically that the fandom itself does not matter, it's the behaviour outward. And being a fan, it's... hmmm. It's like you want others to know about it. You want define yourself in context of the fandom. (hence, "I am a fan of X") It has just weird socialness to it. It's about groups that you identify with and how important they may be to you. The group aspect to it, as well as its importance, and the external proclamation to others of your fandom.. It's all outside of the self. Hence why I wondered about extroversion.

I feel as though it's fun to be so open with their fandom of choice. Of course it's not wrong to keep to yourself and it's how they want to present themselves. But ju st because someone is more overt then you are doesn't mean it's something that needs to be over thought. That's just how some people are with what they enjoy In life. I'm sure you have something you enjoy doing that when someone asks it sends you into excitement and you love talking about it. I love hearing what excites someone and that's why i, personally, enjoy being open and talkative about it.
