You shouldn't be (I'm not), but society doesn't like it when you go outside the "norm". Like me. See my age?? People think it's weird that I watch Anime and read Mange. Now, I read a crap load of other books too and watch a crap load of other movies/TV, so I have a broad range of gulity pleasures.



I think its more to do with you're a female of that age. Most people don't bat an eye of a guy in the mid to late 30s watching anime or reading manga/comics.

Most things that people find guilty normally are because of society itself or possibly morals too (most likely the same)
For example, take lolicons; some people have guilty pleasures for them and it is frowned upon since yeah, they're basically little kids




Guilty pleasures tend to be fine. Some broseph might be like "I have a guilty pleasure, I like some Michael Jackson albums" or some high school kid who likes metal and has friends who like the same stuff, he might be like "Actually, listening to some Elton John is a guilty pleasure of mine."

Guilty pleasures tend to be more ordinary stuff like that. But if someone has a guilty pleasure of liking anime loli porn or something...or has some erotica and pornographic anime figures in their room...yeah, they better keep that to themselves. Especially the first one, that could make their life difficult.

The way I see it, it can only be a guilty pleasure if it's illegal. And I don't see how things like Taylor Swift and reality tv are BAD for you. They might be bad, but I don't think they can actually harm you.
