How do you respond of think of people who hate anime before they've ever tried it out? Or judge anime from just a few. Those who think every anime fan is a sad weaboo. Today I logged into steam to find out that one of my "friends" on steam has invited me to a group claiming that anime is gay and fans should hang themselves. I just told them to watch bebop and not judge all anime. They said they would dox anyone who was a "weaboo". This is just gonna be troublesome. I unfriended that guy, and reported the group. Anime haters can be so annoying sometimes...

For folks who are mostly just looking for a way to create a "part of the club" feeling through mutual ganging up against something/someones else, I'm not sure there's a lot you can do.

Since I don't encounter this situation, I don't have any real response that I actually use, so I can't claim this would be effective, but rather than saying "just watch [show you think is good and worthwhile (which maybe they honestly won't)]" maybe point out that saying that "Anime is 'gay'" (boy do I hate the use of "gay" as generic derogatory word--that alone is enough to put someone on a "not a friend of mine" list) is like saying "Books are gay"; "Movies are gay"; "TV is gay"; "Games are gay" ...etc.

Basically getting folks to understand that there is a variety of content covered by the term "anime," much of it not worthy of derision, maybe that can lead to less of a tendency to hate on it.

I guess. I'm not really scared of them as they shouldn't be able to trace anything back to me.

Maybe I should've just not said anything to them in the first place. EDIT: I just deleted that comment. No one may have seen it.

People are stupid until proven otherwise--it is a philosophy that has saved me a lot of grief. People will have different likes and dislikes, but unless the subject is illegal or immoral than taking an extreme position against it is, frankly, stupid. My philosophy on this is: It's a Baskin Robbins world with 32(+) flavors of ice cream because not everybody likes vanilla.

I dont really care lol.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions.

Only time I take offense is if someone hasn't even watched a single decent anime and is generalizing an entire media form as shit.

Most people judge anime based on stuff like Maken ki instead of masterpieces like Legend Of The Galactic heroes.


Also, there is nothing wrong with hentai lol. I hate when people say that hentai is the reason why people dislike anime.

Thats like saying, all movies and t.v shows are shit because porn exists.

I usually ignore them, anyone who doesn't have an open mind I tend to avoid. So many arguments can be saved.

some people refuse to watch anime because "it's too childish"
and then they proceed and watch Hollywood animations aimed at kids like Toy Story, Monsters Inc and Frozen.
