Why Do Girls Get Judged For Reading These?

Simply put, people [namely, many teens I've met] nowadays are arrogant little prats that can find nothing better to do than to jump to conclusions. Chobits and Love Hina are supposed to be shounen/seinen, so when people see girls reading a manga with girls on the cover featuring large breasts, it's pratically mandatory for them to go "LOL SHE'S A LESIBAN".

That, and children nowadays can't accept anything unorthodox. Oh no, doing pot and sleeping around are perfectly fine, but reading manga!? Heresy, sheer heresy!

I think it's like the whole "boys don't cry" thing. If a girl reads something that's remotely fan-service-y pertaining to girls, it goes against the norm. Kinda like if a girl was seen reading Playboy, you know? I've never done so or run into anyone who has, so if I did and was ignorant, biased, or what have you, I would find it really weird that a girl was reading that. (I wrote this without reading Fushigi Rockna's comment beforehand. Sorry 'bout that, but I'm glad to know that someone has the same logic as me!)

I read Playboy for the articles. :D

But yeah, that's exactly what I was trying to say.

Mind you tho, it does make sense if someone thinks you're a lesbian because you're buying yuri manga. Female fanservice is one thing, full fledged girl on gril can be another story :P

Maybe some people think it's a tad strange to see a fangirl read something like this?
I really don't see anything wrong with girls who read Chobits or something. Though parts of the manga CAN be a bit dodgy..... Maybe that's why people stare at them...?

"Normal" people that I work with make fun of me and we all laugh at my being a nerd. My best friends and I spend most of our time insulting each other and then laughing hysterically because we know it's all in fun. Are people saying these things to you in a mean kind of way? If so, that's not cool.

Well put.

somebody thought I was bi becuase my hair is semi short(around my jaw, I cut it to be a bit more original) and I read shonen. Its like if I go to school dressed in all black people automatically think I'm emo or goth. Though I dont see how these series would matter as long as we are not sitting there staring at the female fanservice pic's for hours at a time. I mean I dont know about love Hina but isnt chobits a bit on the 'cute' side at first glance, Im shocked guys dont get judged for these just as much if not more then girls do.

Funny, I never have been judged by the anime/manga I watch/read. And oddly, nearly all of my favorite anime/manga is shonen/seinen, which includes Claymore, FMA(yep, that's included of course), Wolf's Rain, Berserk, Rune Soldier, Escaflowne(though considered shojo as well). I know a lot of girls who enjoy shonen/seinen, and I even know guys who read shojo. XD

I personally don't see anything wrong with it. But then again, I'll probably watch any anime that has to deal with fantasy/scifi, action, and/or history. In that case I always ignore the demographics and go by my own personal interest instead.

o.O

But I actually enjoyed reading/watching Love Hina. Yes, a bit on the perveted side but that's just part of the humour, and we can all take a little dirty joke...right?

And I'm a bit peeved off that people automatically assume that all girls enjoy reading shojou series. Heck, I absolutely despise most shojou manga. Just because a certain anime/manga series is targeted at a certain group, it does not mean that people who do not fit into that group need to stay away from it, nor does it mean that EVERYONE from that group MUST enjoy it. Unless there's some crap about illegal stuff for minors like pr0n...

A friend of mine used to make fun of me because of the manga I read. It was a Love Hina one, and Chobits. He said he enjoyed the cover art though(I bet you can guess why). It's hard to believe that Love Hina is shounen though. A lot of times, when I read Naruto, people are like "That's for little boys." Well, I can say it is NOT for LITTLE boys. Because of.....some content.

To me manga is manga no matter how you look at it.I like reading most manga as long as it interests me though shojo isn't my favorite.

Heh, a friend of mine(as mentioned above) was looking at the cover of Love Hina Novel Vol. 2. All he said was: "Are you gay or something?" For the record, I didn't choose the cover tongue.gif.

manga is made for both genders .. it doesn't matter but if it keeps on bugging you
then ...


simply look for another one that is better ! smile.gif

boys are even mistaken to be gays if they read shoujo manga, right?

it means that something suits better and that you're not alone smile.gif)
