what's the worst thing other people have said about anime?

i hate it when other people say someting bad or stupid on someting that they havent even seen. when i ask people about anime, they say 'i dont watch cartoons anymore except the simpsons'. but the worst thing someone has said about anime is 'i dont like pokemon and digimon".

First off, anime isn't just Digimon and Pokemon. Their are tons of other animes.

All anime is just porn! I kid you not, someone said that to another person who talk about it at another board.

One person said "Isn't that the same thing as Pokemon?" Either that or, "Why do you still watch cartoons?" I get so angry with the people who say things like that,and it's hard to believe how ignorant and closed minded some people can be.

True story: I was once drawing Ayanami Rei (oddly enough) and some guy came up to me and asked if she was from Sailor Moon. I almost burst out laughing.

The worst I've ever heard is probably the porn thing as well, from some delightful religious fanatic who took great joy in telling me what a sinner I was every time she saw me. Naturally, coming from her it meant nothing to me and I wasn't offended or upset

I've heard it before and I'm sure I'll hear it again very often

"Aren't you a little too old to watch cartoons?"

Worse thing I heard said about anime..., probably from the aquistion guy at Manga Video in the early 1990's..., after watching trailers for My Neighbour Totoro & other Miyazaki films..., it was claimed that he said that Totoro & the ilk couldn't be anime, because it had no tits, or tentacles, or rape scenes in it..., what a moron..., :

I remember late in High School, I had to take this stupid basic computer course that I was already light years ahead of in terms of computer skills, but I had to take it anyway because it was a required class (we're talking 25 WPM to pass the class when I was doing 80 WPM).

In the middle of the class, we had to make a Power Point Presentation about ANYTHING you wanted to. It didn't have to be shown to the whole class, it was just 'reviewed' by the teacher and 2 to 3 other students just to make sure you knew how to make a PP presentation.

I decided to make one about Evangelion. I didn't want to save a bunch of stuff on the School harddrive, so I just copied and pasted some images into the PPP for use (I later deleted the whole thing since it was no longer important). On one page, I pasted a wallpaper sized image of Rei Ayanami an streched it out to where it fit the entire Presentation page perfectly. A girl sitting next to me looked at it and asked how I was able to do that, and then she said: "Oh, isn't that like Pokemon characters?"

I responded: "No, this is a lot different from Pokemon characters."

She responded: "Oh no its not, that's like pokemon."

She said this even though she had never seen Evangelion and probably not any other anime besides Pokemon. Of course, the smile on her face may have indicated that she was just teasing me, but I don't know.

It's true alot of people say that stuff just to get a rile out of you ^.~

The two most common ones have already been mentioned:

Cartoons are for kids.
and
You're a girl, why do you watch that animated porn? How can anyone get off on a drawn girl?

::shrugs:: Most of the people who think that, will only have their minds changed if you force them to watch something they'd enjoy.

Most often commented from people who see my pictures: "Oh is that Sailor Moon stuff?" I don't get Pokemon or Digimon comments as often unless they have young brothers/sisters/children.

"Anime? I tried to search for that once, it's some kinda porn thing ain't it?".

"Ain't you a little too old to watch cartoons?".

"Oh, it's like Pokemon!".

"Anime?"
---------

Those're the standard comments ... ignorant little twerps.
