Why is the sex "subculture" the only thing that matters here?

As much as I'd love to go all Ero-Sennin on a 28yo female I don't really use the social functions here so at least I'm one pervert you don't have to worry about.

That would explain it. It's not a fast process. It happens over time. I didn't even start getting added by other users until after a long while. Most of my buddies are people I've added.

I just don't accept any requests and hide within my fortress of self imposed isolation. Its safer that way.

Then once in a while I stare out, sigh wistfully and hug my cat.

Honestly though, I do find it a little weird when I get a buddy request from someone out of the blue because I commented on their post in a thread once. And I do mean once. Is buddy count some sort of status symbol around here? Are you suppose to be racking them up like CR points? -.-

I tend to get people trying to add me if I post in a handful of threads at night. Happens every time I do that.

There's only a few select people I would add if they sent a buddy request, and they're not sexual or fake.

Umm. I get adds every now and then.

I even have a backlog that I've been too busy lazy to even look over.

Welcome to reality.

And secondly, why would you look for friends on the internet?

and third, why are you talking about trying to make friends on the internet?

I come here to talk about things. I've learned that people are to needy, they demand something from you, and even if I try it's pretty much pointless.

People are fucked no joke, but so am I, and I wish people would see that so they can stop expecting me to be someone that fits their expectations. Trying to have a normal conversation and I can tell already they don't know what to say. I still have my select friends on CR, You know the ones where they can always give you a reply every so often when you feel like you haven't spoken with them, since it's been a month or more, you know; people that actually live their life for themselves.

Fuckin hell man, there is no point, there really isn't.. I would rather draw to be honest, or write. At least there is consistency, not this bullshit game of tug of war. I myself have really grown tired of it, because in the end all I really want to talk about are my dreams and goals, and I would love to hear what other people want in life as well, but the thing is, they Don't fucking know!

,People my age are predictable, and it just sucks the life out of me, like one track minds sucking you in. There were only 2 people here on CR that spoke with happiness behind them, but even then I wasn't good enough. Just shows you how worthless I am A worthless asshole.

How very true and sweet life really is, and all you can do is look back and just say to yourself, what a selfish piece of shit you are.

I love the internet, I really do, slowly consuming me.

Yep, it's disgusting and creates a toxic environment. Part of it is the ridiculous way females are depicted and often downright objectified in so many anime titles.

It only takes one (or a few) bad apples to spoil the whole barrel. If someone continues to harass you, even after letting them know their behavoir is not welcome, then please report them and hopefully they will be removed from the community. That's the best way to deal with bad apples. And it will help make CR a friendlier place for everyone.


Objectification of Women in Anime

The issue is mindset. The objectification of fictional characters can leech into reality if you embrace such thinking. Or fictional objectification can strengthen compassion toward that character. Fiction reveals to us our deepest thoughts. If you are turned on by some fictional women being exposed or put in compromising situations, these types of thoughts will interject themselves into reality. Fictional objectification can show us aspects of ourselves that we may not see otherwise. It is a safe place to realize our proclivities. Realization is the first step to changing behavior we dislike. So in this regard, anime’s objectification of men and women can be helpful.

I generally avoid anime that has girls’ clothes shredding. I specialized in character design in my undergrad animation degree, so I drew a lot of female anatomy. Nudity does not bother me. Circumstances of nudity does. Clothes get ripped in battle, but efforts to objectify a strong female warrior shows more about the viewer’s and writer’s mentality than the character’s personality. Namely, this objectification is aimed at reducing the threatening feelings a strong female character can invoke in a male audience. Many men are troubled by women who are too strong. These women cannot be possessed, bossed, or otherwise need a male. So, in order to make them more acceptable, these strong female characters are objectified through boob shots, up skirts, and similar nonsense. Are you a fan that feels threatened by strong female characters?

By the way, if you want a good anime with a strong female lead that avoids objectification, check out Moribito.
