You know these people.  "Japan isn't that great." "Wolves aren't that cool." "Yaoi sucks." "(Popular thing) is overrated!" Etc.  People who express these opinions loudly, not just because they feel that way, but out of spite for the people who do like these things.

When dealing with them, remember this - a person who tries to bring you down for simply enjoying something is usually just attempting to prove that they are a better, more sophisticated person than you are.  And in that very act is the proof that they aren't nearly as sophisticated and mature as they wish they were.

So fuck 'em.  Like what you like, and don't change under pressure.  Because in my eyes, giving up something you like just because it makes you look like a stereotype is weak - holding on to it and proving you're more than that is strong.

Honestly, I can pick people like that apart. Actions like that stem from lack of self-esteem and respect. So in order to feel better they try to provoke others or knock them down a notch. It's all really predictable :/

I never thought of it that way, but it would fit right in with the way that I always thought they seemed to be. x3

I remember a teen summer camp I went to when I was 14. Some little punk-ass b**** named Aaron was ALWAYS trying to pick a fight with me. I cannot remember a day where I didn't want to punch his face in and then stomp his nuts xD
Seriously, I had more than several inches on this kid, and he was acting like he was in control. I told him off once and he just got even more pissed off. Here I am thinking, "You little prick, the size difference is obvious enough, you are lucky I can control my temper or you would have your ass flat on the ground.
Seriously, he and his little buddy were badasses when none of the counselors were around. But if I even SAID anything close to a vulgarity, they ran to the counselors to tattle. Sometimes I regret not punching their lights out xD
I may have gotten kicked out of camp, but they needed to be taught a lesson.

...But I wonder how he is doing, today...? x3

I don't really care.
My guess is being a pain in the ass, not very useful. Proooobably on his way to jail. Lmao, I know that's just awful of me to say, but you had to see him for yourself to get my point of view!

:P sorry but WoW will never be a cool game...The artwork and concept artwork is pretty but that's about it. The game steals lives and I know a bunch of people who are living on the edge of being broke most of the time (or living with their parents in their mid-late 20's) and complain about not having enough money YET still manage to pay for game time. *eyeroll*

LOL Well that was pretty random, but I have to agree on the idea that it can be a tad on the unhealthy side. I played it for a week straight -- barely sleeping, and the only other thing I did was go to work. The rest of the time I was a zombie. That was my first week, and after that I decided my life would be pretty bleak if I kept it up, so I quit. Cold turkey, never looked back.

Games like that are fun and engrossing, but they can be dangerous if the wrong person is playing them. I've seen WoW ruin lives. x3

I'll admit, though, that I still love Final Fantasy XI, even if it's the same kind of thing - the difference is, I can walk away from FFXI and not feel the NEED to sit there all day. I'mnot sure why - it may be slightly more boring? I dunno. xD But it's not as addicting.

The internet did that to me way back when...like 1999/2000 when I frequented yahoo chatrooms...4-5am bedtime, wake up about 7-7:30am go to school. Zombie my way through. It totally screwed up my sleeping abilities XD;

Addictive games depends on the personality I guess.

D8! Have you seen the video of the boy who had his WoW account cancelled by his Mum, his brother put a video camera in his room. This kids (teen) had a MAJOR sad @_@...For me WoW seems way too toony so I won't even touch it :\....Rather spend my time playing Mass Effect and Bulletstorm XD;

:P I usually keep things to myself from certain things I don't like or find it strange. For example, I ran into an art of a busty anthro fox wearing skimpy armor and a big-loaded sword, I didn't like it but didn't speak out in public and rather share it with closer people, like my cousins. I used to hate on Ben 10 so much (but not the aliens) because of the fandom and cross-overs and pair-up stuff, but I didn't intentionally waste my time hating on something and move on or share my opinions with those closer to me. I even drew a political picture of one of the aliens smash Ben with a trash-can with tag "Impeached." I deleted the art because I don't want to look like a hater. Well, I had to criticize less but then, I'm not even trying to be a loud-mouth wannabe person. KEEP THINGS TO YOURSELF. Usually the people that irritates me are fetish people, but then I leave them alone. :)

I'm not a fan of Ben-10 either, but it's got more to do with people at my job, and bad decisions they made... x3 It's a bit of a long story, but in the end, although I don't like Ben-10, I don't need to make stamps about it. xD Which is, I think...how it should be. x3

Amen to this!

I HATE that people condemn things only because they're popular. It doesn't make any sense! They try to convince others how "unoriginal" popular things are, which also makes no sense. I love that another person sees things how I do. All hail loving what you love for yourself and nobody else!

When I don't like something, I only say I don't like it if I truly don't like it. For instance, I HATE yaoi. Not because it's uber-popular and I want to be a so-called "cool kid", but because I truly hate it. If somebody posts a stamp saying, "I loooooove yaoi!" I won't jump out and say, "OMIGOSH I HAAAATE IT AND YOU'RE SO STUPID FOR LOVING IT!"
The people that do that make me laugh. :XD: Oh, people. :D You so silly.

I agree with this. every one must do, like whatever they want as long as they don't hurt others with it. As for me for example, I don't like Yaoi, I prefer Yuri but that doesn't mean people who do are stupid or something. If they like it, then have fun, I've got no problems with it :)
(I love Japan and wolves =P just felt like saying this =P Have fun with your interests everyone! :lol:)

Interests and hobbies are for fun. So they should stay that way!

My fav would really be Yuri. I havn't watched Yaoi but don't have teh urge to do so too. there are SO many animes, I really have to make priorities. And new animes air too so I really have to make priorities.

I agree with you :D

Nyaasu Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Haha, I totally understand! I have my priorities, too, especially with video games. I could play so many that my friends recommend, but my priorities come way before that. xD

Also, have you seen Strawberry Panic? I am watching that with my boyfriend and we love it, it's so cute! We are almost at the end. It's Yuri, so I figure you've seen it. ;D
