Grass is greener ideology follows culture too.

The ridiculous nature of the __aboo falls in not respecting where they come from and inexperienced conjecture that ____ place is better. Yeah, it can be annoying. Ignorance and arrogance will always walk with adolescence. So I try to look at it in amusement, and ignore it when I can't. These people will grow up. I used to fancy moving to Japan myself. Eventually I came to realize that while culture is different, people are the same everywhere you go.

Self expression though, is a fun and beneficial part of life. Don't be too quick to judge someone just because they enjoy a culture or intellectual property. When someone is enjoying themselves with new ideas, they're spreading tolerance and generally going to project positive energy.


Some people think Jaden Smith is a fruit or a nutcase for mixing "female" clothing pieces or wearing his best formal Batman outfit to a wedding. I think to some extent the kid is doing something right. If you're not required to wear a uniform and can pass a dress code then wear what you want. Just be prepared if you run around in an orange jumpsuit and ninja gear you better "Believe it!" that most people are going to think you're weird. Some old ladies may call authorities too.

You know what I'm talking about. Teenage girls obsessed with Doctor Who and Harry Potter faking British accents on a daily basis. Who wear Harry Potter earrings ----------




Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaait. Wait a minute.



If that's what the average teenage cumbucket is like nowadays, why are there so many defeatist posts around here by the younger forumites about how they can't get dates or whatever.

So what are your experiences with Teaboos?

What do you think of Teaboos? Do they get on your nerves or do you just not care?

The closest experience I've had would have to be the encounters with the "Naru-tards" ( A term my classmates coined for the people who were in the more specialized special ed. programs ( emotionally disturbed, mentally slow, mutes, etc. compared to the special ed. students who were capable of going to normal classes ) and were also into the Naruto anime ( only the first one was out at the time, I think ) that proceeded to dress like the characters, etc. ) who seemed to roam around the high school in groups of three or four. One classmate in particular always wore her headband, a replica of Naruto's outfit made of what I believed was felt and did a good imitation of the English voice actor. When they weren't simulating Ninja Battles in the hallways they were pretty cool people and they made our school's Video Gamer's Club livelier even though them joining the club ( to play the various Naruto-themed fighting games ) sadly brought the special ed. teachers with them which ( I believed ) caused the club to start dying.

When I joined the club as a Freshman with my friends One-A and Two-B the only school staff involved were the Librarian and Principal. It went on that way for until the middle of my Junior year when the Naru-tards ( having seen One-A and I, both special ed. students capable of going to normal classes ) decided to join the club which had an open-door policy to anybody who had a gaming console. These special ed. students that required more supervision brought more teachers and caused the rest of the club members to have to censor their content ( we went from being able to bring games with any rating to not bringing anything rated above a T ( for teen ) ESRB rating. These teachers also began to change/dictate how the set-up and take-down was done for our events: Before the Naru-tards the club's members could show up, eat the dinners they brought with them and then begin setting up the televisions/game consoles; this took about an hour. After they joined I remember my friend Two-B and I showing up, starting to eat ( it was about 5:15 PM, the club activities officially began at 6:00 PM which would have left a half-hour time for set-up, which didn't officially begin until 6:00 PM anyway even though it was often done before so we could have a solid four hours of gaming time excluding our 12-hour lock-ins. ) only to have one of these teachers walk in and go "Jae, Two-B, should you both really be eating now when you could be bringing TVs to the elevators?"

It wasn't long after that event ( and similar events with others ) the Librarian decided to leave the club; possibly because of all these special ed. teachers changing how the club functioned even though she was pretty much the founding teacher. Other people also began not showing up to club events or only showing up to the 12-hour lock-ins held twice a year. What was a good thing was simply discovered by our school's version of Teaboos and because of that we lost our club. With that said I don't blame the Naru-tards; they themselves were a good addition to the club ( and very well behaved, fit in and/or got along well with a lot of the other club members ) but the special ed. teachers they brought with them ( who really didn't need to be there given the principal and librarian were both more than qualified to deal with individuals with special needs ) made things rough on the rest of us. A few years ago I heard the club was no longer running. This is the closest experience I've had with those of a teaboo-like mindset.

P.S: I mean no disrespect to both fans of Naruto or special needs individuals when I use the term "Naru-tard."

So you can avoid misunderstandings that could otherwise result from your inevitably incorrect use of the homonyms.

Ehh unless your an idiot you should be able to pick up the correct meaning through the context. I mean Latin is entirely built around that.

I've been to England and love it. If I decided to, I would move there but I'm not sure how easy it would be to get manga and anime there, so... And I hate these kinds of people because they do not act British at all. They barely have accents even, they're probably more rare than most people think. Before I start rambling more I'll end it here.

I've been out of high school for a while now, so I've never seen or heard of them. Is this a real thing, or is it a minor subculture that gets exaggerated online?
