So, the other day I was lurking a DA "appreciation" forum, because, let's face it, terrible MS Paint Animuz is fucking hilarious. Anyways, everyone was just poking fun at sparkly-eyed monstrosities, all was good, until suddenly, someone found Darthglacier's art for whatever reason. Everyone was revolted at her fangirl-ey pictures of her and Cell, going on about how "sick and twisted" it was liking a guy in bug-like armor. And you know, that's not the only time I seen things like that happen. I remember seeing Zim fangirls get loads of hate before Invader Zim became super popular and it was typical, and there's Jet fangirls that get bashed because "he's not as sexy as Spike" (Cowboy Bebop). I guess you can call me butthurt about this, I am, after all, a "weird" fangirl myself. But seriously, there's only so much bullshit I can take before flipping my shit and bitching about it.
So, people who are bothered by some stranger's interest, I have just one thing I gotta tell you. You ready?
WHO THE HELL CARES?
Seriously, why should anybody give a shit about what someone's favorite character is?! Why? Why should you waste valuable seconds of your time complaining about what some girl on the internet likes? I could understand being revolted by someone jerking off to a little girl giving a man a blowjob, or some guy who's raping his German Shepard, but a Cell fangirl? Please.
Really, the only fangirls that don't get bashed are the ones that like typical bland bishies or other "sexy" characters. Fangirls of characters like Death the Kidd, L, Vegeta, Sebastian, or Edward are left alone, although they do occasionally face stereotypes of being stupid or irrational fangirls for liking such superficial characters. And you know, that's the key word there: Superficial. I'm sorry guys, but not everyone is into wangsty, sparkly-eyed toothpicks. Beauty is incredibly subjective, one person's "hot" is another person's "Ugh she's too fucking skinny". So saying a fangirl shouldn't like a character because he's ugly is pointless. There's obviously reasons why she would like him. Maybe it's his personality or behaviors (I know it's a stereotype but there is such a thing as attractive personalities), or maybe it's his attributes or attire. (I know lots of Alucard fangirls that love his badass longcoat) Or maybe, you know, she thinks he's honestly sexy, even if you don't. There's plenty of reasons why people like certain characters, and it's not fair to judge other people's opinions because they're different than yours.
And even then, if you're still not convinced, the idea of fangirling or finding a character in the least bit sexy is still considered weird to the "normal" people. Whether it's Faye Valentine, Vegeta, or Captian Ginyu, it's still Toonophillia. So why are we suddenly picking and choosing what imaginary character is ok to like? It's ok to like this made-up character, but not this one? I'm sorry, what?
Bottom line is that nobody should give two shits about someone's hobby. Maybe if it's affecting someone's life, it would be understandable, but what somebody likes is nobodies business but theirs. Really, if it bothers you that much, then don't hang around them. It's not like they're flooding the internet with it (Which can't be said for the "sexy" character fangirls...).
So, sorry for being a whiny butthurt baby about this, but it's been bothering me for a while. Carry on with your lives.
