Creepy people attend anime conventions, film at 11.
Or, Bitches and Whores!
So New York Anime Festival was nearly a week ago now, but the wank lives on, as it is wont to do.
These are mini-wanks, really — fun-sized, like those little candy bars you get in bags to hand out to trick-or-treaters, except instead of nougat they're full of stupid. Which is not nearly as tasty, but at least it won't rot your teeth, just your brain. Wait, maybe that's worse.
Anyway, the first one comes from the official NYAF forums, where one young man by the name of wawawa22 posts a topic entitled "i hope she sees this." Apparently he has seen a beautiful Yuffie cosplayer, and he has never been this crazy about a girl before! He "cant remove her off [his] head" [sic], it seems. So of course the logical course of action here is to post a picture of her (now removed) and beg her to contact him.
Several people offer moral support, while others say "Dude, not cool." Our intrepid OP is sorry they're creeped out, but it's not healthy to bottle things up, guys! Things continue in this fashion for a while; eventually concerns are raised about whether it's okay to post the girl's picture. wawawa22 feels remorse and takes the picture down, though leaving the text intact.
Then along comes Kita. Kita thinks people are overreacting, because anime fans have no social skills and thus think that people are interested in them when they're not (note that she's talking about the people who are creeped out here, not the ones doing the creeping). Also, cosplayers don't like having their picture taken. She knows this because of her learnings. Cimi tries to debate this point, only for Kita to reveal that she's an internet psychologist.
Also on the creepy front, we have Hiroyuki, who tells us that women who show too much skin are asking for the attention and if they are not interested in you, personally, then they are clearly stuck-up bitches. Kita disputes this, revealing in the process that Internet U's psych degree includes a class on ladder theory.
Rurouni Idoru comes in and makes a rather awesome, if tl;dr, comment explaining exactly why this is creepy. Many people agree, including Kita, surprisingly enough. There is a musical interlude. Amidst all this, asianwolverine decides to share with everyone an anecdote about how all women are psychos if you turn them down. Also about peeing.
Finally wawawa22 returns and reveals that he was drunk at the time and has already forgotten the unfortunate Yuffie cosplayer; he also claims to have learned a lot from the replies. Hooray, happy ending! Or something.
And as a slightly smaller side-dish with a similar but distinctly-flavored brand of fail, over on the cosplay.com forums someone posts a topic about a girl who was letting people grab her boobs for $5. Opinions are divided over whether this is funny, disgusting sluttery, illegal prostitution, or OK as long as she's hot. There is also some ranting on the related (?) topic of the dangers of paddles.
