Not one show in-particular, but there is a friend I know who gives everyone crap for watching anything that is post 1995 and enjoying it.

Not watching in particular but reading yaoi/bl fanfic, manga, and doujin is probably closest. 2nd is watching sports anime as people would automatically think I watch it for gay ships (I'm a fujoshi but I make it a point to NOT ship anyone in sports anime because that might ruin the story for me), and watching some mainstream shows.They don't target me exactly (since I don't join in forums wherein the hate are) but seeing other fans aside from myself getting berated and insulted.

Yaoi fans are accused of being rude to actual gays due to the portrayal of gay relationships in the stuff we watch/read and many people think were sickos.

Not all girls who are into sports anime are there solely to ship the boys with each other. I, for one, actually enjoy the shows for what they are because I think they're pretty awesome. Same with most anime with 'gay vibes'. Not all girls watch it solely cause of those you know.

Need I explain how people think Naruto fans are automatically 'retarded 12 year olds'? And as people pointed above, liking SAO makes others think you have crappy taste in shows just because they didn't like it as much as you did (I don't care what people think, I like SAO)

Actually, liking anime in general would make people (non-anime fans who doesn't understand) think you're either super childish or a pervert/violent for liking the stuff.

Not just anime actually, watching cartoons, too. There are awesome ones now out there but people would think lowly of adults who like kids shows from Disney and CN (case in point, one of my fave artist drew a fanart of Star Butterfly and there are people commenting on how he shouldn't be watching or posting 'kiddie Disney sh*t'). Much worst if you're part of the My Little Pony: FiM fandom and you're too old for it and especially if you're a guy (I'm a girl so a little less hate, maybe) because people would automatically think you're some kinda pedo or something and needs medical help.

Yes. Sports anime.

Everyone thinks that I'm just watching it because of the gay ships. I find it really frustrating because my favorite is Ace of Diamond and I literally have no gay ships for that awesome series. I feel like it's underrated because everyone just assumes that it's gay just because it's a sports anime. Haikyuu! Is the same way with me. I have no gay ships. Free!? Yes, I have gay ships. But I feel like one anime ruined the status quo for all of the others. Like I said, it's really frustrating to me whenever I try to get someone into DnA and they won't watch it because they think it's like Free!.......

How is this even a thing, the art style doesn‘t even raise any flags both are also 255% straight 100% through the series. Now i know why CR users are so adament about ignoring sports.

Well, not that I can think of. Of course, while I am willing to watch all sorts of stuff, there are just some shows I avoid like a plague that I would probably be criticized for watching. But more often than that I get criticized for what I'm not watching as opposed for what I am, though in that situation everybody understands that time is quite limited, so at least that's not as big a deal. But in any case, to each their own seeing that I can't reasonably expect everybody to be on board with the masses.

Two times.
my friend broke me into ecchi with stuff like ikkitousen, golden boy, highschool dxd when i use to not even look that way but he judged me for watching Strike witches or Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai! the later i only got 2 episodes into before i dropped it because it was not enjoyable having eye balls drill into my back for watching a so called little girl anime.

The other thing i was accused for by the same friend was watching nothing but gore after watching Higurashi and probably a couple years later Another which highly annoyed me considering you really have to dig if you want horror. It was just kind of a 'really' thing where i had to sit back and stare at him for a bit than continued to enjoy myself.

But now that i live by myself i could care less.

My friend thinks I'm weird for liking shojo but I don't care B)
I'll continue to watch Yona of the Dawn, Ouran High School Club, Fruits Basket, and Cardcator Sakura

You don't even have to have a feminine side to enjoy shoujo although i won't deny it. Show your friend My Love Story, he'll probably get it after that.

For watching mainstream shounen. I'm pretty sure even people who hate naruto watch naruto but just don't talk about it. How can you love anime and have never seen NARUTO

Well i could turn that on your head and say Dragon ball Z, One piece, Slayers, Yu yu hakusho the list goes on and on Shounen is just that much of a mainstay.

I think everyone wants your grandma.

I like to read horror manga but watch slice of life and romance even some yaoi sometimes my son gives me grief and he wants me to watch parasyte with him but I have my own system and watching yaoi he leaves the room lol

The big question is why aren't you Dad? One you're watching anime with your son and two it's PARASYTE, that's like double the win and living the dream.

Interesting people can get criticized for watching anime.
When I was in the anime club in my high school, no one really cared about any kind of interests.
