Anime 100%
It's just a really toxic and elitst fandom from my interactions with it. You can't even say you don't like anime or the animation style without being attacked. It's full of children and porn (always a horrible combo). Plus since it's considered more "normal" than the furry fandom most of the people are so obsessed that it takes over their every day life so they feel the need to talk about it and shove it down your throat. Plus it's not an accepting fandom, I've heard of fursuiter a at anime cons getting attacked and stuff so I 100% do not want anything to do with that fandom ever.

Us furries are weird but at least we admit it and don't attack other "odd" fandoms
I agree
I've had terrible experiences with that fandom
I've only seen like a few anime but I'm not really in the fandom
Its toxic
There's lots of pedophile related stuff in it too
People think shipping an adult and a child is cute
People think shipping incest is cute
Its not
Definitely not
A lot of people in it are guys who fetishize lesbians and girls who love "hot yaoi"
It is by far the worse

Well, you're focusing on the bad, but remember not everyone who is in the fandom is horrid. And anyways, there is no "anime fandom." Each anime has it's own fandom. And some fandoms are made without even consideration of sexual content. It's a misinterpretation, of anime that is talked about here. Remember what people outside the furry fandom look at furries as. Would you like it if someone came and posted those misinterpretations here?

I have to agree mostly with this, although I enjoy going to anime cons and watching the occasional anime. The fandom is just no, to me.
(I also see way more shota/loli porn and incest and its just a huge turn off for me. Its also a shame a lot of them like to pick on cosplayers that don't fit the "role", like they make to where it seems like you have be an asian stick in order to cosplay a character from an anime :/)
There's also way more theft in the anime crowd than there is in furry stuff in my experience(but DA in general is full of theives whereas FA gets rid of them fairly quickly)

I honestly don't get why people think furries are awful. I've seen worse and this is one of the better fandoms imo.

The fandom can be good like others, just the bad outweighs the good at the moment.
(And anime is its own fandom, just like the furry fandom. Its just generalized to anime)

Agree.
Though I love anime, the fandom has probably at least twice as much porn and sexualized stuff as the furry fandom
yet we get all the hate
Like why though
"Furries are all about sex, so theyre bad"
Yeah, tell that to your nekko girl porn collection.

Its not a misinterpretation
I think I'm allowed to express my opinion about it
Sorry if you dont like my opinion
And yes anime is usually generally one fandom
Especially on deviantart and tumblr
And I'm not afraid to admit the furry fandom has problems and its okay to hate furries, not everyone has to like it. Its not the end of the world if they hate it
Everyone is entitled to their own opinions after all

There /is/ an anime fandom. There may be subfandoms as well but that doesn't eradicate the fact that there's an anime fandom. Conentions like Anime North cater to the anime fandom as a whole not specific shows. Also everything from my post came from first hand experiences (except the fursuiter part but I've heard enough people say they've been harassed in the anime fandom for being a furry that I believe it to be true)
Sure the whole fandom isn't like it but there's a LOT of people that are. I haven't had a positive irl interaction with someone in the anime fandom yet. It's a pretty toxic fandom overall tbh
Furries live up to their stereotypes too but at least we accept them and don't try to lie about how great we are

I do have to agree with the the whole anime thing. It's one thing to know how to appreciate anime without going fucking insane, but it's another to... well, you know what I mean. A lot of die-hard anime fans deny that their stereotypes, while furries are just kinda like "oh I'm a furry I'm weird yeah lol"

Let's be honest. All fanbases have some bad and toxic people, so all are bad in some way. It actually really hurts me to see people getting judged on something they like because of a generalization and other people's bad behavior from said community.  But here's a few that get on my nerves personally.

-Minecraft. It's not a bad game, but this game has got really old, and most of the only fans I see left tend to be really obnoxious, and praise MC like it's the best thing ever. Like
no, not really, it's really out of style now, honestly. People should still allowed to like it if course, it's just annoying to see how some people still treat it like a big trend.

-Most band fandoms. I'm surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet? I love music, but these people take it to a scarily cult-like new level. Some band fans are so elitist, and are willing to exclude people from the fandom, call them out, and tear them down for " not being true fans" because "they don't know enough about the members in the band", haven't listened to // like every song, don't understand the meaning behind some of the lyrics, haven't been to any concerts, or don't own any merch. The above can be said for any fandom, but bands take it to a whole new level. We don't need to know about the people in the band- some of us just want to enjoy the music, and that doesn't make us any less a fan. As for concerts, I personally don't go to those because everyone's screaming and that ruins the experience for me. (That's another thing I hate. I went to a concert once, and there was no way I could hear the music because everyone was screaming at the top of their lungs. I thought you wanted to enjoy the music, so why are you trying so hard to make me deaf???) Also, some of these people obsess about the people behind the scenes so much, it's kinda creepy sometimes. And can we get over the whole "I want (insert band member) to marry me!" and thinking that they will actually love you one day? It can be hard to take in, but they are older than you, lead very different lives from you, and chances are, they won't like you back. It can hurt, but hey, it's true.

-Tumblr and SJWs. Do I need to explain?

-True Crime. To be honest, I'm really interested in the psychology behind big-name criminals. It's fascinating to learn how normal people can become such monstrosities. No, I'm not talking about the people who are interested in how these people came to be. I'm talking about the people who justify them. Like, why? Why are you romanticizing and defending murders and terrorists? They killed and hurt people!!! And they don't show any remorse!!! Why would you ever view them as your hero? How would you feel if they killed your friends and family, or even you? How would you feel then?

-Cringe Community. I actually enjoy some cringe videos. I find it entertaining, although I don't know why. But these people really slap a bad name on many different communities, and sometimes make honestly good people look awful, just because of something they did that was embarrassing. Yeah, that person on video? They ARE cringy- but everyone has done SOMETHING embarrassing in their lifetime, even the people who make these things, so why tear people down for it? It's also kinda hypocritical sometimes, considering some "cringe" fans hardly know anything about the people or communities they rant about, slap "cringe" on literally anything (even though there's nothing said with said material), and make general fools of themselves as well. Seriously, some don't even know how to spell???

-Frozen. The movie isn't bad and the hype has died down now, but back when it came out, these fans really annoyed me. They'd rant about how it was one of the best movies ever, even though it was really average. Seriously, what was so groundbreaking about this film? Big Hero 6, Zootopia, and Moana were much better movies than Frozen, and I have no idea why all the attention went to THAT movie and not the others. I remember 6 months after it's release, people were STILL hyped about it, and when Big Hero 6 came out, it didn't get nearly as enough attention. Just annoying, that's all.
And Let It Go wasn't all that good of a song.

Undertale. Heck, from what I've seen it's mostly just a bunch of fangirls "fighting" over Sans, people making edgy OCs and very few who actually just enjoy the game.
I mean, I love the game itself but the fanbase is just... *shivers*
(but definitely not the fanbase as a whole.)

Sims (simmers)
I'm technically apart of this fanbase since I love the sims, but my lord all they do is complain...and then they continue to buy the game. I get it, sims 4 isn't the best. But, honestly neither was the sims 3. If you wanna play an exact replica of the sims 3, then just play the sims 3. Not play 4 and complain about it. js

Not all of simmers are like this, in fact only a select few are like this. I've met some really sweet, enthusiastic and nice simmers in my life. Some just spoil it.

Kpop
Oh boi. The fans can just be so overbearing. Don't like kpop? they will probably get angry or just flat out say they don't like ya. Plus the way they obsess over each singer is ...creepy. Don't even get me started about shipping

True crime
Dani already said everything I would've said about this. Its just creepy.

Also, alot of video game fanbases are pretty terrible. Eh

Not everyone in these fandoms are bad, but I honestly can't enjoy it due to idiots. At the end of the day, if you're apart of any of these fandoms, that's fine! Be yoself ♥

I'm now gonna say bronies. (This doesn't count people who call themselves mlp fans just people who call themselves bronies)
I was looking up "how to make mlp oc" guides because since I saw the trailer for the movie I wanted to make one. In some of the guides they were just angry assholes who kept saying furries have no dignity and they're not worth anything. Or just being unnecessarily rude
I just wanted tips on how to make a pony oc not this shit
