It's been a long time.
Weaboo horror stories thread. (Plot twist, you are the weaboo doing cringy stuff in your story)
>whines about not contributing
>doesn't contribute either
Anyway, i remember an old story like 7 years ago about a girl wearing a terribad gothic lolita milanoo-tier thing with a cheap ass wig and dirty sneakers who tried to seduce a Sephiroth cosplayer and got him outside,in a corner where nobody was (she told she "really needed to tell him something" and he thought if he did he would finally get rid of her...big mistake) and she ripped her dress bodice's zipper open in front of him and lifted her skirt.
According to the poor guy,she was...entirely naked and "wet" down there. She litterally threw herself on the grass/dirt saying she was his sex slave and insane crap like that. It was like in 2009 and not spoken of because the guy was actually so embarassed. One of my friend knew him and told me the story.
He immediatly left and went to my friend and took him appart and told him what happened, then they went for con security but the girl was nowhere to be seen.
Not so much a horror story, but this thread is p much dead anyway so
>Was about 14 or 15, hid powerlevel from everyone
>Friend got super into Naruto and made me listen to all the OPs and EDs, which I didn't mind but pretended not to know already
>'Oh anon! This reminds me, I was listening to these songs on the bus the other day and singing along and when I went to get off I saw I was sitting in front of a group of Japanese people!'
>Jesus how embarrassing
>'No it was great they were so kawaii and sugoi! I said konnichiwa'
Later that year, different friend
>'I'm going to enter the dance show and do a lolita maid version of World is Mine! You probably don't know it haha, it's by this super cool virtual idol called Hartsun Mikooo'
>Ends up getting rejected in the end, so all was well on that front, but she dressed as a 'geisha', complete with cheapass umbrella as a parasol and unsealed kiddie facepaint, on the last day of school, because why not
During lunch one fine spring day
>Go to library to print out stuff, go to pick out a few books while it's printing, lean against shelf to flick through them
>Girl on computer in front of me is reading graphic lightsaber yaoi with heaphones in
>W H Y
>Friend of hers comes in, sees porn, goes over
>'WHERE'S THE DICK'
>The librarian is sitting like two feet away behind a glass door that is very much not soundproof holy shit calm your thirst
And a particularly baffling example
>Bunch of girls do a presentation on something history-related (or something about current events/politics, can't remember)
>Shoehorn Ouran into it in the form of gifs, clips and rose petals
>Kiss kiss fall in love playing in the background while girls mumble their way awkwardly through coursework
I don't know where half of these came from, I went to a very normalfag school with almost no manga in the library (porno girl excluded).
>halloween this year
>in hot topic with roommate looking for specific socks/accessories for costume
>chuckle at the extremely commercialized anime merch that's literally coating the walls
>roomie doesn't know about power level, keeping it pretty hidden as to not make her think i'm weird
>just brush it off as amusing nerd shit, continue helping her with costume ideas
>two skinnyfat girls turn the corner holding hands
>one totally screeches as soon as she sees the SNK shelf/aisle/thing
>one calls the other's name
>responds with "levi"
>realize she's saying "eren" and not "erin"
>continue to listen to them banter as if they are these characters with pausing for disgusting PDA
not the most terrible thing i've ever witnessed, but really creepy and more common than one would expect.
>checking out with roommate right as they're perusing the makeup in the checkout line
>one says to the other "your eyebrows are fleek"
is the pic supposed to be cringier than your weebiness?
what is it about libraries that bring out the weebs? I wear lolita all the time yet the only times I get accosted by weebs is in libraries. Ususally all they do is condemn my baka gajin reading material and direct me to the kawaii manga
I miss these threads, haven't has anything to contribute in years, but have some vintage horror.
It aint weebiness if its not from japan, clearly he said its korean
In the end, everyone who browses this board is a weeb and there's no denying it without making yourself look more like a weeb.
>getting ready for the cosplay contest
>two other grills (one midge, one fatty-chan) come to gush over my costume
>feels good man
>suddenly, fatty-chan sits down on my styrofoam cooler and shatters it
>orange crush cans go everywhere
>fatty-chan runs off blubbering
>pick up sodas while midge just stares
>she wants to tell me about her Homestuck OCs
>tells me about all ten of them while silently farting every few minutes
>listen to this bitch for fifteen minutes while smelling her farts
>suddenly, stagehand appears from nowhere
>cosplay contest cancelled
>olly into the sun
No prob. Trying to find a really crazy one I read years ago,
My personal favorite,
I know this ain't really weeaboo but it truly reminds me of the cringe fest.
>be me outside restaurant on Halloween
>dressed as Luigi and friend is Shy Guy
>talking with group of friends
>friends stop talking and look at me
>two Homestuck girls in my face
>staring into my soul, breathing heavily
>"is there something you need?"
>most likely both autistic
>asks to take picture with Shy Guy
>he agrees nicely
>we all ask if they want us to take the picture
>completely ignore us
>take 3 terrible selfies
>walk away without a word
Here's a story from years ago. Let's call it the Karl Chronicles
>be tiny Asian grill who my friends jokingly call the "loli mascot" of our friend group
>go to a university in a small town, don't know anyone so I'm desperate for friends during first year
>join the anime club
>they seem to be well adjusted people, despite the fact that it seems that I am one of only a handful of female members who I never see for some reason (!!!)
>whenever we hang out and play a game like mtg or super smash bros, they make it into a competition for the right to court me (their words not mine)
>when someone wins anything, they turn around and ask me out on the spot only to get rejected
>I'm flattered at first, but its a joke right?
>I'm decent at gaming so I win most of the time anyway
>there's this one guy who's always desperate to win these mini competitions though
>we'll call him Karl
>whenever he wins a game he always has this triumphant look and I always catch him staring at me like a piece of meat
>note he's not an unattractive guy. He's a head taller than me and has a neat appearance. Maybe I would've gone out with him if my boyfriend didn't exist
>everyone knew about my boyfriend who goes to another university, and yet they still "compete"
>I never really talked to him save for when he asked me out occasionally, which I always reject
>I'm too preoccupied with school work, trying to stay in touch with my old friends and boyfriend as well as making new friends to notice him get progressively angrier
In junior high and highschool I was super into anime. Not obnoxiously, though. I live in a small town so not many people even know what it is. There was a girl from a town next by who is 4 years older than me, let's call her J. J contacts me and we start hanging out. She is sweet and a little awkward, but I brush it off. We become good friends. Then, she insists on dressing me up all the time. Called me "kawaii desu" unironicly and tells me I look like a real life anime girl, small and cute. I assumed she was just being friendly, even though she knew I wasn't straight. She said she was so I didn't suspect anything.
So one night we have a sleepover. I crawl into bed and she crawls in too. I distance myself on the other half and try to sleep. All of a sudden she gropes my breasts, out of nowhere. I freeze and say, "J, what are you doing???" She literally says "you're so kawaii and small but have big boobs, like Yoko from gurran lagan."
I say I need to go to the bathroom and sleep on the couch. Layer find out Yoko is her "waifu" and distance myself. Weird times.
2/? sorry if its getting long, also I fell asleep
>when I reject someone, I try to be super nice about it, like I have a boyfriend that I want to marry someday etc and they're usually fine with that
>as time went on he got violent, like punching walls and throwing chairs
>I overheard him to talking with one of the club execs about how he's gonna dress me up in sexy lolita clothes and gang rape me with his friends until the ahegao face gets stuck as my face
>mfw I was working up the courage to wear my ap pieces to class
>I tell the club president about this and he just laughs saying what Karl just has a crush on me and not to take it seriously
>I'm still creeped out and I tell my boyfriend over our daily Skype chat
>he gets super pissed
>bf is also Asian, but super tall, I barely reach his collar bone. We'll call him Mark
>Mark tells me that his co-op is letting him take a week off for his archery tournament and he wants to stay with me during that time
>I email my profs to get permission for him to sit in for one day
>the next week is quiet at the club, I distance myself from the main group where I know Karl is
>no one is asking me out for the competitions anymore, but I still catch Karl staring at me. Maybe the president talked with everyone?
>fast forward to the day before mark is supposed to come into town
>at lunch time, I take the bus to my house as I rent a room off campus
>Karl is on the bus too? I try my best to ignore him
>he walks up to me and holds the same pole as me, his fingers almost brushing mine
>he apologizes for how uncomfortable he made me and asks how my boyfriend is
>I'm relived so I tell him he's doing fine and coming to town
>he says something like if Mark wasn't in the picture than he could have me to himself
>I immediately regret thinking I could date him
3/? You have no idea how creepy this fucker was
>I'm like, "how can you say that?! "
>he lowers his hand on the pole to grip mine super hard. My hand is starting to hurt
>"Since you're Asian, you've never dated a non-asian before right? I promise you that my dick is longer than his. You'll be submissive like my waifu reincarnated" etc. I only heard that as I was trying to tug my arm out. His face was really close and he wouldn't let go of my hand
>the rest of the passengers I guess were ignoring us
>I feel the bus slowing down and I bite his arm and bolt out of the rear door of the bus
>it was far from my bus stop still but I still bolted home and never looked back
>when I return, I gather my two housemates and we secure the house. The was a robbery a few months ago so our landlord add new locks and braces in every door and window
>one of my house mates (we'll call her Sarah) let's me crash with her for the night
>I tell my boyfriend what happened and he says he'll come over tonight
>instead of taking the train, he'll drive here instead, which is 3-4 hours away
>I stay up with Sarah playing smash till he got there
>he arrives and Sarah goes to work. We fall asleep watching Netflix on the couch
>the next day, we go to class and he's carrying his giant bow case saying that with the competition so close, he feels anxious not having it close by
>whatevs, we take the aisle seats in the lecture halls
>he even has fun in class discussions and I feel so much better
> Be me
> about 13
> go to first convention
> decide that it's best as a fat 13 year old that I go as pic related
> costume is bought from cosplaymagic
> thighs so fat the costume gets stuck around them
> clasps break
> no wig
> choker can't fit around fat neck
> literally wear a braided belt with a monkey tail because hur durr what is putting a tail into a body suit
> cry and eat pocky the whole convention
nigga she was already practically assaulted by him once, I'd have no hesitation carrying my bow along fucking everywhere if I was getting threatened
please keep going storyanon, I need this
>I decide to introduce him to the anime club
>it's awkward at first, but he shows them his bow and he easily integrates with them as though he's known them for years
>even though he has fun with them, he never leaves me alone
>when I go to the washroom, he waits outside. When I got to get a drink, he comes with me. When I go to sit on a table due to lack of chairs, he pulls me onto his lap.
>haven't seen Karl though
>execs tell me he wasn't feeling well
>I have more fun chilling at the club than I had in months
>I leave the room to go to my locker in another building to stash my stuff
>Mark is in an intense game, the n64 controller looks like its gonna shatter
>he tells me to wait for him, but I tell him it's close by so it's fine
>I exit the building skipping
>"hey.... Anon-chan?" No one ever added the "Chan" before
>Karl was hiding in an alcove near the entrance
>"I saw your boyfriend. I'm so much better than him aren't I? He's tall but I bet his dick is small. You love sex don't you? You should just dump him and love me. I became a yandere for you anon-chan. I'd kill him for you"
>he's brandishing an exacto knife
>this part of the campus doesn't get a lot of traffic so there's no one around
>"Since you're Asian, you've never dated a non-asian before right? I promise you that my dick is longer than his. You'll be submissive like my waifu reincarnated
>Japan Expo 2014
>two geisha as guests for the traditional scene
>see a handful f really good albeit classic kitsuke, some ok yukata, some bad "wa loli"
>three fatties in chinese brocade bathrobes, chopsticks in bun, "geisha" makeup looking like pic related
>thankfully they didn't get to approach the scene
>a stupid chick still managed to ask if geisha were prostitutes during the q&a
Nicely enough the translator just refused to translate
>we /k/ nao
An exacto knife can fuck your hand up, the blades are very sharp and thin like a razor on the end of a stick. However they're fairly delicate. Not good for shanking, a pocket or kitchen knife would be a better weapon
Sage for OT
Not really cringey but
>Go to small con with close friend
>She's cosplaying pic related
>She need to drink, buy a lemonade inside the con
>Walk arround the con searching a place to rest and drink
>Girl run to her
>Hug her with a lot of power
>Because a fucking miracle, she don't throw the lemonade
>Friend looks anxious
>"Hey mate, do you met her?"
>Random girl want a picture and says "I LOVE YOU"
>I just hold friend's things and lemonade and wait
>Friend looks with a weird face
JFC. This and the stories from 2011 above could make up the first season of a new horror series on SyFy. "The Darkside of Cons" or something.
Anyway I have to hear how this ends anon. Hopefully with this guy in jail.
Because quite a bit of anime plots involve an "average" guy that's nice to girls and they all have crushes on him. If you grow up and jerk off enough to these plots you have an unrealistic expectation what what life should be like. And on top of it they are probably awkward and have bad social skills.
5/5 sorry it took so long to finish
>holy shit is this bitch srs
>regardless I try to run around him to get back into the building whilst screaming
>I am tiny Asian grill so I know I can't go super saiyan to roast this guy
>I manage to go through the door at the side of the building that leads to the stairs
>the club room is in the lower levels so I run down, not bothering to check if he was following
>I make it to the outside of the room where my bf and couple of other members stared at me in shock as I babble about what happened
>my bf is strangely calm as he bends down and does something to his bow case
>the elevator down the hall dings and Karl steps outside it
>I go to hide behind Mark while an anime club exec calls campus security
>Karl appears at the doorway, no knife in sight
>"Hey anon. Sorry about that. I just wanted to let you know that I'm sorry for scaring you. Can you forgive me?"
>Mark is super pissed
>"You realize that you've been creeping on my girlfriend right?" Mark says as he raised his fucking bow at him
>it's a practice arrow, but those are still scary
>mark forces him to back off and to kneel
>"look man, I thought anon-chan was cute and I wanted to tease her that's all"
>mark is like "so you pull a knife on her and scare her to death? I should shoot you!" He starts yelling at him with the arrow pointing at his chest. Karl starts crying
>campus police comes to arrest him
>I now have a restraining order against him and he got expelled. Mark did all right on the competition and the testimonies of the club members helped prevent Mark from getting sued by Karl's mother
>I hear he's getting mental help now
>now I'm finishing my degree and I live with mark
My AMVs landed me a film editing job. Showed them to the boss on Youtube. I still send them to my mom and colleagues because the scene isn't something to be ashamed of when movie trailers and shit are basically AMVs. Keep going with it, anon.
>listen to this bitch for fifteen minutes while smelling her farts
I think that kind of behavior is more common in smaller, cheaper cons because it's full of young kids who don't quite know better, but in well-established cons, most attendees are older and more experienced.
Oh man, you don't know what's going on here
The most important con in country is full of cringe lolitas neko kawaiis with "free hugs :3" postings.
Pic related is supose to be some "freestyle neko goth lolita". And people shot her. I live in a sad place.
>the next day, we go to class and he's carrying his giant bow case saying that with the competition so close, he feels anxious not having it close by
hardest ive cringed in this whole thread, holy fuck
quite a bit, there was an old homeless guy lived a couple of streets away from where I used to and he got slashed by some guy with an exacto knife when he asked him for change
sliced up one of his eyes pretty bad and left him unable to see out of it, got a bit scar across his face too - that was only a passing hit, if somebody wanted to hurt you with it they could do some serious damage
You're so fucking full of shit your eyes are brown.
Good read? It sounds like a bad self insert fanfiction.
>totally a cute tiny asian loli girl
>my boyfriend is a super tall asian boy and he super cool and does archery
>all the boys wanted to be with me and had competitions over me
>creepy guy followed me around and the my super sugoi boyfriend was a badass with his bow and scared the creep away
Give me a fucking break.
I dunno what school she goes to but I assume she's in the US and most campuses differentiate between weapons and "weapons". My school recently got an archery club and all the members have their name on a list and got a pass they carry to show if anyone asks about why they're carrying bows and arrows. Like there is no reason you should be running around with an AK47 but a bow? Meh.
And like anon above said, you can usually open carry (with mixed results)
Either way, maybe its real, maybe its not. I F5'd for the story anyway.
Shit, this reminds me.
>Doing some shitty dating game show thing at a small ass con when I was younger. I don't know, my friend ran it.

>i read all the cringe and feel bored, finally work up courage to ask for a non-sexual drawing of Hidesushimiyazakikun Bloodsorrow the Unwanted because i want to show off Sephy's work as my profile pic on our RP site, but i can't because my OC is in full ahegao mode in all Sephy's pics

It is worth mentioning that we were not on the same server in-game. We made alts on each other's servers to do any in-game RP, but most of our interactions occured on the RP forum that wasn't server-specific.
>i lose myself in raid life

I don't really have any specifics, but good lord going to art school provides me with a lot of cringe, especially in the weeby respect. I have one cringe story, although it's not so much weeby as it is generally cringey
Okay, I'm down to share
>Be me, freshman year of college with no friends
>Meet a small group of people with similar sort of weeby interests, and we bond and hang a lot
>One of the girls of the group we'll call Tea. Tea is a small, asian girl who everyone assumes is Japanese
>She's really quiet at first, but soon opens up to be a really fun, mildly perverted person
>Then there's one of the guys, we'll call Bruce
>Alex is pretty cringey right off the bat, but he has aspergers so we try to be a little more accepting with some of the stuff he says
>Throughout the year, he talks with us about stuff none of us particularly care about, such as MLP and abridged versions of a bunch of series and we humor him with some of it
>Eventually Bruce and Tea become closer friends, hang out sometimes outside school and talk more frequently
>It's pretty evident that Bruce is interested in Tea, but Tea has a boyfriend and makes it clear that they're very happy together
>The longer time goes on, the creepier Bruce becomes with how he acts
>Tea comes to me and tells me she's becoming very uncomfortable with some of the stuff he's saying to her, such as how she dresses like his ideal goth waifu and sending her pictures of ships saying "I'm X and you're Y in this picture"
>I suggest she tell him that she's uncomfortable, and she does so, telling him she needs space
>A few days later, Bruce messages me asking for advice, specifically how to deal with a friend asking for space
>I tell him honestly, giving said friend some time to think would be the best idea
>He then goes on to explain how he's jealous that she's talking to other people and not giving him as much attention
>Says he thought it was a good idea to "have a cute girl as a friend, but then I fell for her" and dumb shit like that
>Turns out since he wouldn't stop talking to her even after asking for space, she just told him "leave me alone"
>Classes started getting a little more awkward, with Bruce trying desperately to pull Tea into random conversations he would have with us
>Keeps messaging me for advice and I always tell him the same thing; "Just do your best to get over whatever crush you have even if it's hard"
>It's obvious Bruce doesn't give a shit about what I'm saying
>Eventually in one of out facebook chats, another friend of ours chews out Bruce, we'll call this other friend Jake
>Jake is in the military, not exactly in shape but he's still a pretty big guy compared to Bruce
>Jake pretty much tells Bruce to fuck off and quit making Tea uncomfortable
>Turns into Bruce messaging me with whatever sob story about that and how everyone thinks he's the antichrist etc etc
>He tells me about how his parents say that Tea is entirely in the wrong, she's not in a real relationship because it's long-distance, which turns into this theory about how Tea has parent issues which gave her a loli complex, something giving her a big brother complex, and turning to online relationships because of past abuse
>I'm very uncomfortable and cut off the conversation at this point because I don't want to hear that shit
>Over the next week everything continues like this, constant messages from Bruce asking for advice because he's still messaging Tea but "doesn't want to seem like a creeper"
>Then we have a bad day in class
Well fuck. Couldn't you just trace over one of your shooped pics though? It'd be better than waiting for some insane lady to give you non-jizzface trace in return for google-inspired rp.
Glad you noped the fuck out of that one.
>One day in life drawing, Bruce decides that hovering around me, Tea, and another friend is a good idea
>keeps asking awkward questions, Tea is very visibly uncomfortable
>After about another minute of hovering, Tea bolts from the room to a different classroom, and all of us are kind of in shock
>she messages me apologizing, saying that she was just too uncomfortable and that she had to go to another room because she started crying
>Tea winds up leaving school early, with everyone else in my group being extremely distant from Bruce at this point because we didn't think it'd ever get this bad
>Bruce begins messaging me asking if I think he's a bad person, how he hates himself and so on, but he eventually begins insulting Tea while he's talking to me
>I'd held my tongue up until this point because honestly I was always mildly scared that if we all stopped talking to him he'd bring a gun to school or some shit
>I finally tear him a new one, telling him that he can't blame anyone else or try to get asspats at this point because the damage was done
>He continues with the pity messages and asking if we can be friends, which I say is fine because in my mind, him talking to me distracts him from trying to talk to Tea
>Spend the rest of the year listening to dumb jokes about Jojo abridged or how I should draw some crossover or something
>Tea, Jake, and I go into classes for our 3D major while Bruce goes into classes for illustration
>We don't see Bruce much anymore, but still get secondhand cringe stories from another friend in illustration
It's not the cringiest thing, but during the year it was pretty bad. He still tries to hold conversations with me and tell me how he doesn't have a job/his parents are paying for his supplies which he blows on comics, and he always tries to talk to me about husbandos and shit. If it adds anything to the story, Jake from my friend group went to Dashcon and talked about how much he enjoyed it
>Jake from my friend group went to Dashcon
>he enjoyed it
What the fuck.
I'm going to try to keep this cohesive, but I knew this girl for about 15 years so it might get off. Sorry.
>hung out mostly with weeb/geek group in school
>we had the fortune of being mostly aware of our own geekiness and thus could self-police ourselves and only let the weird shit out while in the group
>except one girl, who I will call Sugar
>Sugar would swear up and down that she was not like us, she was not a geek, she just liked hanging out with us
>yet no one squealed as loudly during romancey or ship-teasing moments in Anime Club
>no one bought half as much dvds or merch

Never once saw her wash her hands so I was scrubbing doorknobs and doorjams and counter-tops with Mr. Clean shit for like 3 days.

did i strike a nerve? Please, tell me more about my mother from my one sentence post, internet freud.
I just wanted a free pic from a "good" artist; it was more my own vanity than anything. Learning she just traced it all deflated any prestige I attached to her work and made me realize how low I'd sunk for attention.
>mfw she wrote like shit, stole art, and i wasted months on her because our OCs were probably so insufferable that no one else would put up with us
People don't know common regs. Most states and schools allow bows in a case. It is also bad luck to not keep it close. Even in high school our archery team kept their stuff with them.
posting some weeaboo horror
kind of confused with 2 threads active, i will try to separate them appropriately
SHIT YES I DO
I hope this is what you were referring too.
I dated this guy a few months ago. He was like really cringy. Best examples:
> he has a Shadow plush hanging from his car rearview mirror and asks it for advice
> he dedicated a bunch of anime openings as "love songs" to me
>he wanted me to speak Japanese during sex even though I don't speak the language.
>he consistently compared himself to Kirito and looked up to him as a role model.
Anyways I broke it off with him after a few weeks and he went completely crazy. He started harassing me through texts. Then he got mad at me for not cosplaying Sword Art Online with him. He said, "I guess I'll just be a Sword Art Online single looking for love that might not ever come." Lost my shit.
not exactly a weeaboo story, but it happened at a con and remains to be one of my weirder con experiences. happened in 2012
>go to homestuck meet because my friend organized it and i wanted to hang with her
>notice an "eridan" cosplayer which was just some fat kid in a whatpumpkin shirt wearing a purple towel as a cape
>watch kid go up to a jane cosplayer who was giving away candy and asks for a lollipop
>watch him proceed to lick the lollipop then stick it on his head
>kid keeps it there for like a minute before forcefully ripping it off and resuming doing this
he did it at least another 5 times. you could actually see sticky bald spots on his head where he managed to rip out a bunch of his hair.
I love that one, someone please post it
I go to an art school too anon. Doesn't help that our biggest major is animation and has twice as many kids as the next biggest major. Yesterday during dinner in the freshman dining hall I saw two girls cosplaying. There are no cons going on remotely near us and I cringed a little
Here comes my story, sorry if I fuck up, this isn't my first language
>three years ago I was part of a complete group of sailor moon cosplay, I was Mars, mostly friends with Venus and our leader, Moon
>Moon is way too nice, all the costumes are beautiful, made by her professional seamtress mother, we only had to pay for the materials, wigs and accessories, and also making our weapons
>We work very hard on the coreo and want to win the contest at the small local con, I even travel for hours to get to the rehearsals bc I'm away at uni
Beggining with the proper story and cringe now
>First day we all meet, some old friends and new faces
>Two people I've first met, Pluto, a trans woman with annoying high pitch fake voice, and her gender fluid tomboy bff, Mercury
>At first they seemed fine to me, can dance pretty well and have some ideas for the coreo
>After rehearsal we all eat and talk to get to know eachother better, Pluto and Mercury start to talk about boobs and are quite noisy
>They start to say how big my boobs and Venus's are. lol ok, we are used to it.
>Then Pluto suddenly grabs my tits and I tell "her" to stop. "But anon, I've seen Venus touch them, and I'm a girl too!" yeah, my friend for years does, that does not mean you can too.
>Takes my rejection as some kind of joke and proceeds to try to touch Venus's breasts, but she backs off visibly uncomfortable, and then they go away, no more of this bullshit with us in the following rehearsals
Now the con is very soon, so we have a final rehearsal with complete costumes and to check if everyone has done their jobs.
>Everything looks fine, we are very proud
>Then I overhear a coneversation between Moon, her husband and Venus about Pluto and Mercury and join to ask what is wrong
>They look pissed and finally tell me that Moon has paid for both of their wigs (she did it to make sure they would get quality ones) and also accs and weapons, but they promised they would pay her before the con
>I get really mad, but my friends ask me to not tell anything yet bc they dont want to ruin the mood untill the contest, bc the rest of girls would get mad too etc.
>I accept, but I'll make sure this is sorted out right after the contest
Then comes the con, and here was a bonus on my hate
>The day before the contest I'm wearing a steampunk costume I made myself (shitty desu, but I was proud)
>When Pluto and Mercury see me they come running and screaming "SUGOOI"
>I was like, fuck now I have to be nice to them... and then noticed Pluto had a coffe in her hand right after they clashed on me
>Coffe all over my clothes
>I get super angry, and they are like "Oh anon, I'm so sorry, pls forgive me, I was just so exited to see you..."
>I tell them to leave me alone and go to the bathroom to clean my costume in tears of pure anger
>At least it was mostly black so the stains weren't too noticeable
And finally, the contest day, everything goes well and we get the second prize, so we are really happy. After the celebration, Moon and Venus go to talk to Pluto and Mercury about the money.
>They claim to be broke and say they will pay little by little
>What the actual fuck. We all knew they had bought some merch at the con, and supposed they had the money to pay her too, even knowing they were poorfags
>There was not much we could do right there, so Moon accepted
This is when shit turns ugly
>As moon is too nice, Venus gives them some friendly reminders to pay her, and after MONTHS they give her only a part of the money
>When Venus asks them when can they pay the rest Pluto says she wont, and obv the other girls in the gorup get mad and talk to her too
>After this, Venus starts to get threatens online by Pluto, saying she knows where she lives and will beat her to death, that sort of things
>Reminder that is a trans woman, who happens to be almost 2 meters tall, with man muscles, and venus is quite small, so she gets scared
>Pluto claims that she has paid all that she owes to moon and that they are trying to steal from her and to make her look like the bad one
>Nobody believes her bullshit exept for Mercury, who defends her
In the end, Moon asked us to let it go, she didn't cared about the money, but was mostly pissed for what happened to Venus. Now they don't show up at cons bc everyone knows the truth about how fucked up they are.
>all these "I'm a damsel in distress" stories
Give me something that will make me cringe for real. Not self-insert fanfic tier shit.
I don't know if this counts as weeaboo horror but this happened a few days ago and I really need to share it.
>be university student
>weeaboo/koreaboo girl in my major has started clinging to me when she found out I wear lolita, let’s call her Weeb
>keeps calling me kawaii, talks about how she wishes she could fit sugoi Asian clothes, seems convinced that I am somehow part Japanese or Korean even after seeing photos of my 100% white trash family
>so basically the usual weeaboo nonsense
>follows me into study group
>one Asian girl in study group, let’s call her Karin
>Weeb starts obsessing over her, wondering “what kind of Asian” she is
>openly fantasises to me about how she would become bffs with Karin and be invited to visit her glorious homeland and have adventures just like in her animes and dramas and maybe even meet some bishie oppas and get married and have haffu babies
>“Even if she’s Chinese that’s okay because she could help me navigate Taobao!”
>refuses to just go and ask Karin where she’s from for whatever reason
>fast forward to thursday
>dude in study group is reading the news on his laptop, goes “hey have you guys heard about the terrorist attack in Asia?”
>Weeb’s ears prick up when she hears “Asia”, probably concerned about her bishie oppas
>everyone starts crowding around the dude’s laptop
>attack on mall in Jakarta, Indonesia, not sure yet how many dead or wounded
>Weeb lets out an obnoxious sigh of relief when she sees it happened in Indonesia because that’s apparently “not really Asia”
>she says this while staring straight at Karin for approval or something I guess
>meanwhile Karin is staring at the laptop screen with her mouth wide open, tears welling up in her eyes
>turns out Karin is Indonesian and used to visit the mall in question with her family all the time
>rest of study group tries to console Karin while I wrestle Weeb out of the room and scold her in the hallway for being a heartless bitch while she’s angrily mumbling something about “fake Asians” and how Karin misled her
>I think I managed to convince her to go and stay go since she was nowhere to be seen yesterday
>if not and she shows up again next week I guess we’ll just have to see what happens
Karin later managed to contact her friends and family in Jakarta and nobody she knows got hurt, fortunately.
I'm not even that bad usually and I managed to say 'good for him' after a friend told me about how someone he knew being killed in military training
for context: an ex I am still close with is going to military training very soon, part of why we broke up (other reasons being no time to spend together and LDR). mind shut down completely with panic/paranoia and I needed to get away from the situation.
guess that can sort of be considered a weeaboo horror story too..
There's not as much to the Jake enjoying DashCon story, but I'll share at my next break if you guys are interested
Fresh in, guys. My 6AM story about clubbing earlier.
>hears a whispered 'kawaii......'
>I shouldn't turn around
>bitch don't fucking do it
>Girl in a lacy 'lolita' dress with those neko mimi that move with your 'thoughts'
>This girl goes on about anime for almost 40 minutes because she's had about three pills and too many drinks and she just will. not. shut. up.
I wasn't even wearing anything cute, but I dug my own grave by turning around and responding to her. God help me. I thought weebs were meant to hate drugs and alcohol. If you've ever had someone pinging talk to you, then you know how bad it is. Imagine them going on about Rosen Maiden and 'gossu rori' (her pronunciation) because she's sooo lolita.
>Mixing menstrual blood in valentines day chocolates
I will fucking marry you for that. Holy shit.
>I thought weebs were meant to hate drugs and alcohol
You honestly believed something like that?
Idk when I was thirteen and still a member of the local society they all did except for the neckbeards who smoked outside.
And this is including the 18+ people. They drank, but together, and never went clubbing. That was seven years ago but idk I thought it would be the same here, we're very very small.so I thought that stereotypes would stick with their stereotypes and not deviate so extremely.
Ask and you shall receive, anon
>one of the first days of class, before I really got to know anyone

>another girl at the table freaks out a little, makes jokes about the ballpit and all the other memes from right after
>Jake insists that it wasn't that bad and how everyone making jokes wasn't actually there
>follows this with talking about how he had to call his dad to borrow an extra 200 dollars for the missing money fiasco

>crazed fans even take pictures of these love letters

It was a huge deal back in the day right along crazed "anti-fans" that blinded one female singer with chemicals in a water gun and another who tried to kill another boy band member with super glue injected into a bottle of drink.
More sad than anything, but my sister used to be friends with a very, very obese girl who lived and breathed Sailor Moon and Naruto. She had a shitty life and they were her escape, and her parents and step-parents made up for not giving her any sort of positive attention by showering her with gifts on her bday/Christmas. One of those presents was a Sailor Venus cosplay.
On the last day of school, they were allowed to wear normal clothes instead of uniforms. What did Sad Girl wear? Why, her Sailor Venus cosplay, of course. But it was more original than Sailor Venus, because she had modified it into Sailor Sexy No Jutsu. It was from eBay so it was pretty much splitting at the seams and painfully short, so she 'fixed' it by gluing strips from a torn-up orange t-shirt onto the skirt and drawing the Naruto symbols all over the damn thing. In marker. The tiara was replaced by a Naruto headband, ofc.
She honestly looked like a spray-painted, patchy Cheeto with giant ants crawling all over her. The worst part was that the bodice ended up tearing in the middle of class, and she had to be picked up by her mum while trying to hide the enormous split that went up to her armpit and her fat was bulging out so she couldn't even hold it shut properly.
My sister said it basically turned into a school joke, people started yelling 'SEXY NO JUTSU! SAILOR SPLIT!' at her whenever there weren't any teachers around and she had to move schools. We felt so bad for her but she got some new (fitting) clothes from her family after that so it wasn't all bad.
>you could actually see sticky bald spots on his head where he managed to rip out a bunch of his hair.
She was a major pain and an asshole to people for a year before she realised that being a friendless tit wasn't a good career path, so most of the people who were assholes were doing it to get back at her. Still a dick move, though...
No first-hand--or even second-hand--experience with this, thank god, because if I did I'd have killed myself. But if you garglge "honmei choco menstrual" you'll see about 200 stories come up from Feb 2014 about translated tweets and blogposts supposedly from girls talking about how they mix in their "special ingredients" for their "love potion," including blood (menstrual or otherwise), spit, and ground-up hair--but mostly menstrual blood (most magical of all, esp. if you can get it fresh, you see...ah, love). It was probably all bullshit, just female trolls on the 'net having fun grossing out all the guys in their class for once, but god there were a lot of tweets about it. There was also at least one full-up story from a guy that claimed to have melted down his chocolate and found clotted blood, but that too was probably just BS.
Or so I thought, but then I read these stories here, and now I'm having all my sweet images from all the high school anime I so loved being stabbed, repeatedly, drowning in a pool of blood....

Not exactly a horror story or anything dramatic, but it's cringe worthy typical weeb stuff.
I live in a small city and I was looking into starting a kimono club, where people get together, wear their kimono and go to a restaurant, cafe, or garden or park and hang out. It definitely can attract a lot of weebs but it's also an opportunity to meet new friends, so whatever. Plus if there are any particularly awkward people, there's an opportunity to educate them about wearing kimono properly, etc
Anyways through facebook I recently found a kimono group that already exists in the area. Basically they are 3 overweight extremely awkward white women who are into geisha culture and call themselves geisha and even give themselves Japanese geimei (a name given to a geisha when she debuts, it's kind of a big deal and not something some stupid foreigner should be calling themselves) They also say they are an okiya, or geisha house. They pose in dark, messy rooms in photos taken with flash, with their cheap Chinese made fans and paper umbrellas. They all have really greasy hair that is never styled nicely and I just feel bad for them.
The worst part is how they wear kimono. They don't seem to have any real ones, just ones they badly made themselves. The musubi (knot) on the back is falling over and looks their obi looks like it was made out of a thin fabric, not stiff like it should be. They're so overweight that that their obi is bunching in on itself and is tied tightly with no padding (the proper silhouette of a kimono is a cylinder) but instead their silhouette is bunchy and round. They have photos of themselves at a con with clown make up and wigs (complete with glasses?) with kimono that was put on them by another person. As someone who loves kimono it's just really frustrating to see people abuse them like that.
I won't post photos because because that's a really shitty thing to do, but my description really doesn't do them justice.
>grow up in super religious household led by a literally schizo mother
>4 siblings, homeschooled, "poor" (she hoarded money and refused us normal shit like medicine because it was "too expensive")
>schizo mom has a habit of banishing random shit from the house if she thinks it's evil
>anything from Narnia books (magic=evil, and religious analogy makes Narnia extra blasphemous) to Cabbage Patch dolls (the manufacturers apparently dedicated them to Satanic forces) to toys we get "too attached to" (making them idols by loving them too much)
>develop habit of feigning disinterest in things i like, to keep them from becoming targets
>this becomes a neurotic compulsion even when things are less hellish at home

>her rationale, paraphrased: "anon, America is a special nation and the devil has his hands in the entertainment industry here. he just isn't as aggressive in Japan because there are fewer Christians there, so a lot of what gets made in Japan isn't dedicated to evil. it would be a waste of Satan's time to attack Christians there the way he does it here!"

Oh my fucking god
not nearly as bad as some posts in this thread but...

Thank you guys. This was nearly 10 years ago (which is what really makes the anime fanart on his grave extra creepy) so we've had some time to deal with it. Still hurts and I kind of hate going home since I'm guaranteed to run into her somewhere.
You gotta shove some Toonami in there man. Never forget our roots.
Maybe, but a lot of places only carry up to 12 here so I shop at a lot of plus size places. Besides, being 5'11" usually means going up to 16 and tailoring down just to get everything long enough.
>White trash religious homeschool circles are a special kind of insanity.
I used to go to a catholic elementary school. Two of my friends (twins) were taken out of the school because the school started requiring vaccines, and according to whatever drivel their mom told them, it wasn't very catholic because vaccines, I kid you not, were made from 'aborted baby lungs.'
In middle school I used to ride the bus with this girl down the road who lived in a trailer and her family were pretty redneck religious. This was during the big Pokemon trading card craze and she had to hide hers under her mattress until her mother found them and burned them in front of her, saying she had brought the work of the devil into their home.

Holy shit. please tell me you have more of this
uhhh if this is real that's definitely something you need to at least notify the school over. collect everything, print out the convo, and ask your advisor or a professor you trust or someone on how to report something like this because that's the opposite of okay. don't wanna scare you either but how do you know this dude isn't capable of trying to pull off something horrible involving you for real?
if the other art professors don't like him either you might have more standing in trying to prove that he's an odd character that needs to be looked at.
Anon, I know you said you aren't from America but you live here now, so you might not know the laws.
Here we have a thing called "Title IX" that protects against gender discrimination in federally-funded education. It's mostly known for forcing the creation of women's sports teams, but it also protects against sexual harassment, basically assuming that shit like this guy is pulling can harm your education and is not okay.
This seems like a clear-cut case of harassment to me and is protected under Title IX. Your university should have a section on their website about how to report these things. Most faculty are mandated reporters, and if you don't want to go to a professor (though I think you should because you want someone who knows you and him to keep an eye out for you if possible) you can find out who the Title IX Coordinator is for your university and report directly to them.
I don't want to make it sound scary, but what this guy is doing is not at all okay and you can report it. He may not be breaking exhibition rules, but he might be breaking other and more important laws since he seems to be directly targeting you. You need to report that shit before it escalates.
>mfw all that mandatory reporter paperwork and sexual harassment training because of my university job comes in handy on 4chan of all places
>never even had to use that training irl
Oh god. Please, please make them do a traditional dance with live music (by them, of course, because they're the geishas and nobody else would get it right) or make them do a tea ceremony. This shit sounds hilarious and I would honestly love to see these trainwrecks.
I don't have anything particularly funny to share, I was in the usual sort of weeb group that did cringey but expected stuff, the worst probably being literally following a boy from school around the city because "omg he looks like my bishie OC character that is in no way just Kisshu from TMM". But I'll try to contribute a story of my own shame.

>lol no it's just me and bestie using a sock puppet account
>so much time spent signing in and out of our own accounts and this fake one, visibly building a relationship with the fake user and getting the boy in our group to interact with it even though he was cripplingly shy
>after a long time, the boy confesses his love to the fake account in a private chat
>"GOT YOU! Punk'd!" etc, we reveal we've been playing him all along for a fool and laugh at his confession. He tries to laugh with us and denies all feelings proclaimed before, retreats into warhammer, doesn't attempt romance for a very long time.
>now as an adult, wracked with guilt
I still don't know why we did it, it's hard to look fondly on those years without remembering what grade A sociopaths we were. I did get back in touch with him almost a decade after to apologise and he can laugh about it now. Neopets was srs business.
>>i decide arguing is pointless and go download some hentai for Jesus
kek'd so hard. Thank you based anon.
I work with a guy who grew up similarly. His parents are anti-vaccine. Won't allow certain movies and such (Frozen was banned because of magic) also only listens to christian music and and Zelda soundtracks. He is now obsessed with anime it all started with Kill la Kill of all things
Seung-Hui Cho was handing in rape-porn plays like Richard McBeef for class assignments; Columbia University let Emma "Totally Not A Porno Movie" Sulkowitz jerk-off the system with her "regret==rape" "art project." I think you could invoke these two incidents with your Ivy's student conduct office, pointing out the violent rape-porn being handed in for class assignments is directed specifically at you, and you'd get some help. I'm not a fan of schools' Stasi atmosphere on policing sex, but this is a case where you might as well make it work for you, because this is actually serious.
Here's a personal story that makes me cringe at myself:
>9th grade, the height of my weeb phase
>take a global issues class
>towards the end of the year, we are assigned a powerpoint project about different countries, naturally, I pick Japan because ~I already know soooo much about their culture!!~
>powerpoint is meant to be between 20 and 25 slides with specific topics to be covered, such as economics, history, religion, government, etc.
>one subtopic is entertainment
>dedicate 20 slides to THAT TOPIC SPECIFICALLY, filling it with weeby shit
>hundreds of gifs of hetalia, death note, and black butler
>describe anime as "Japan's national pastime"
>while discussing music, heavily reference vocaloids
>show my class the music video for Ievan Polkka
>Ron Swanson-esq teacher doesn't understand my weeb-ness, but is vaguely impressed that my powerpoint is 50+ slides, and it's the end of the year anyway
Basically, I was the weeb other weebs post about in the cringe threads.
Sort of a horror story? More funny than anything.

That girl became a mother fucking queen.

Tori P. is a blessing to this world, every time we went to a convention together she kept the weeb trash at bay. Never had to worry about being harassed when she was with us. Well unless she did the harassing.

Man, this so much.
I'm really interested in the ethics of childhood and specialised in it for a few papers, but because I wear lolita and watch anime i couldn't ever take part in class discussions about it without someone assuming that knowing about this field of laws and legal cases + weeby interests = paedophile.
Geez I'm glad I'm not the only weeb with a purely education interest in the topic. I've actually written about the topic again at the grad school level, but this time around no one knows me as a weeb so they respect me for my knowledge on the issue rather than made fun of me.
Doing research for it is nerve-wracking though, I'm sure I'm on some FBI lists for my search terms.
There are no studies that have shown that legally allowing anime/drawn/virtual CP is causally linked to an increased rate of child sexual abuse. To be fair it is an extremely touchy subject to research. However there are a few great studies that have shown that after restrictions on pornography in general were loosened, sexual abuse rates actually decreased, and this finding was replicated in a few different countries.
A big reason that people are against the legalization of virtual forms of CP is that they think it will make it harder to secure a conviction on people who have the real stuff, i.e; "Oh this isn't ReAL CP it's just a picture I drew/a computer animation" but IMO that's a pretty easy distinction to make.
With the way the laws are now virtual CP is not specifically illegal but it can be caught in the net of the obscenity laws...for example the Handley case where this guy had yaoi mangos and got sent to prison even though there was no way to prove the yaoi boys were even supposed to be underage.
Also IMO alllowing the virtual stuff will help to kill of the market for the real stuff and that means there will be less children abused in the making of the real stuff.
I hear what everyone says about "yeah but if people watch it they will start sexualizing children!" but idk I feel like if you ended up watching that kind of thing you were probably already predisposed anyway.
Some people raise the argument that drawn CP, while not depicting 'real' children, can aid the abuse of real children by acting as a tool for manipulation. In essence, the abuse is normalized to children exposed to that type of media. How true would you say that is?
i have mixed feelings because a lot of horror stories ITT alone involve creepy weebs using terms from shota/lolicon as they creep on anons or anons' friends. dunno how many are true, or how many are just playing on the fear that drawn cp will lead to inappropriate behavior at cons. still, the number that use the terminology of porno manga seems high. without such porn to normalize their feelings, i doubt those autists would act on them so cheerfully.
HOWEVER, i don't think virtual porn of any type should be illegal. but in the weeb market, where chuunis and /r9k/ers and the mentally disturbed flock, i wish it wasn't treated like a big innocent joke.
>Also IMO alllowing the virtual stuff will help to kill of the market for the real stuff and that means there will be less children abused in the making of the real stuff.
Not the previous anon, but I agree 100% entirely. Pedophilia is a shitty thing, and I honestly feel bad for any "good" person who has to deal with it. I feel like any person who isn't predisposed to being a criminal/is a decent human being with no other mental conditions would never, for the life of them, want to sexually abuse a child, even if they were sexually attracted to them. A shitty person who doesn't care about human feelings or the safety of children won't give a fuck regardless, but the people who actually repress all of their sexuality on the basis of knowing what they feel is wrong will benefit.
I agree with the other anon that it shouldn't be treated as a joke whatsoever, though. Being attracted to children is a seriously unfortunate thing to befall a person, especially somebody who is a legitimately good person.
No argument that that's true. however that shouldn't/can't really be used as an argument to ban it completely. What i've seen suggested is that previously convicted child rapists should be sanctioned for possessing it, as in their possession it might be dangerous, but the general population should be able to access it legally.
That is true, I'd never really thought of the issue in the context of cringe stories lol but it is a good example. And interest in porn is definitely a process where you need more and more extreme shit to be satisfied. But again I feel like the people who go down that path in the first place are already fucked up in some way and even if they didn't find lolicon they'd find furry shit or other kinks like that. Also having the lolicon available for them to wank it to is at least a preventative tool for some pedos.
And I definitely agree it's not a joke. But in general I think people treat sexual issues like this (rape, for example) as funny just because it has to do with sex. Need some bigger act than banning anime CP to get people to stop being immature about sexual behaviors.
Seriously so happy to be talking about this on /cgl/ lol my brain has been mush lately so i really appreciate this discussion.

I wear it to bed sometimes if I'm out of sleep shirts but oh my god it's just so embarassing to think about. I also used to draw for the school newspaper in middle school and did shitty Suta-Raito chibi copies with Inuyasha characters, or inserted Edward Elric into every school project where you had to draw shit.
in this vein, my weeaboo horror story, where i was the horror:
>be sexually abused at very young age
>have warped view of world due to paranoid family obsessing over stranger danger after abuser was caught
>forever trying to figure out if any adult who approaches me has bad intentions
>be 13, get into anime
>be realizing i am gay, feel shitty about it because religious family + past abuse = massive guilt and self-disgust
>plots are mostly adult x young boy
>hear the "samurai used to fuck boys" line used to defend such yaoi in online groups
>end up looking into it, find random historic facts about that and boy actors being banned in Japan way back when due to men falling in love with them
>convince myself this is perfectly normal and should be legal because samurai and kabuki etc.
>continue to think and argue this off and on throughout highschool
>can't understand why other people don't understand it or why they think i'm weird when i'm just explaining facts about historic Japan
>realize in the end i was just trying to normalize my feelings and bad yaoi was the only model of "loving" homosexuality i had ever been exposed to
>for that matter, shitty religion had a grim view of even heterosexual "love"
>the concept of a relationship between equals, in straight or gay relationships, was foreign to me, who just wanted positive attention from an adult
i cringe remembering how warped i was and to this day feel triggered (lol, i know) by fans of series like Loveless or Black Butler.
>But in general I think people treat sexual issues like this (rape, for example) as funny just because it has to do with sex
>>8818525 here and i agree with your points. there is a small movement to relabel child porn as something like "evidence of sexual abuse" to reduce the view of it as erotic material and refocus on helping victims. in the case of drawn porn, there is no victim nor evidence of abuse of said victim so it can just stay that: porn.
anyway i have been in a few survivor groups and abusers show regular, legal (for adult consumption) 3DPD to kids to groom them so yeah, access to virtual cp wouldn't change much. outside of weeb circles anyway.
Appreciate hearing the input of a survivor, sorry you had to go through that kind of thing. I'm glad you're going to groups and stuff.
And I was thinking that even without drawn cp predators have tons of other options with which to lure children in. It sucks that they use drawn cp to do it but we can't go around banning anything that might be used as a lure for abuse.
thanks, and again i agree. the stereotype/joke is being lured with candy, but "candy" can be lots of different things. predators gonna predate. if it was easy to stop it would have gone the way of polio.
good luck with your research, it's an important topic people rarely approach with rational empathy.
That's a shitty situation to be in, I don't think you count as the horror in this story desu. Having yaoi manga and ancient pedos as the only things you could use to justify your sexuality must have twisted you up pretty badly. Are things better now?
Also, does your family know or have you not gone near that minefield?
Seconding the search result thing so bad, having lolita as a hobby is no help.
No where near close to >>8818525 but i do partly blame my time spent as a child reading graphic hentai for normalising non-consent to young me, and even glorifying it. Sort of "they can't control themselves because they like me so much!". It doesn't help that even romance in shoujo seems to follow some scary outdated behaviours.
But at the same time I believe that what's important is the upbringing of a child so that they understand how things actually work and the difference between fantasy and reality. I was really well educated about reproduction, but it wasn't until far too late when things had already gone wrong that I realised I had hugely mistaken how humans should interact. Sex and porn isn't wrong, but as we see in the behaviour of cringe thread creeps, growing up on smutty fanfics and hentai without a basis of reality can be just as damaging to your behaviour and psyche as it is suggested that growing up on extreme violent porn without access to normal relationships is. You can't hide porn from kids, they have their own sexualitiies. They should be discussing it safely in class, parents should be sitting down with kids and telling them porn is not real life.
I'm sorry to anyone upset by this discussion. On a lighter note it reminds me of a funny article about people getting back into dating after being in very long relationships are finding current sexual behaviour baffling, because of how wide use of tinder and porn have changed things so much and so quickly. Mostly buttstuff.
I had to look at the covers of the books they're reading, but that is Danny Fenton and Sam Manson dressed as the kid from City of Embers and the chick from Stargirl.
thanks for the support anons, i was not expecting it.
>Are things better now?
>Also, does your family know or have you not gone near that minefield?
yes and no, i chose to have 0 contact with them as an adult.
accept this cat instead
>They should be discussing it safely in class, parents should be sitting down with kids and telling them porn is not real life.
bingo. this is where it all goes wrong. all the creeps and weirdos in this thread, and all of us who had a twisted romantic view of being victimized, truly needed good sex education. there is too much shame and secrecy IRL and a lot of intense, imagination-grabbing porn online. when no one gives you the right message you're just going to believe the wrong one.
>mfw i dropped my cat gif

>Would go around to the most attractive male cosplayers during cons, ask them for hugs, and flirt shamelessly with them despite being underage and usually way younger than them. Most of them were awkward about it but still said yes to the hugs and then epically hoverhanded.

So much cringe desu, at least I wasn't fat either.
apparently she is still relavent? I saw a post of hers going around tumblr, because Neopets stole some of her fanart and traced it for official merchandise. Also apparently Neopets is still relevant
>a female neckbeard
those are called "legbeards"
lack of socially-acceptable grooming is important to both categories
Oh wow. My condolences.
People treat children as idiots. Adults tend to assume that children are the same, mentally, from 5-15 and think that they need sock puppets and a costume to discuss anything more complex or threatening than cake decoration. I'm slightly glad that people aren't telling their kids about porn because it'd most likely just end up as D.A.R.E. but more embarrassing, and would probably encourage kids to go after hardcore porn. If it was handled maturely, it'd be brilliant. Teaching children about grooming and telling them that fantasy is not the same as reality would help cut down a lot of other unpleasant behavior too, because they'd be able to realize when they're being creepy instead of romantic.
Sorry about your family, it must have been hard to make that decision.
This one might not be as horrific as some others in the thread but it was definitely a horror story to me.

>my parents are getting more and more suspicious of B but i continually delete my text messages at his command
>they meet up with him and set up some rules for being able to talk to me
>this includes no dating, no lovey dovey talk, and absolutely nothing too mature for my age
>he says he'll agree to the rules
>it was all a ruse
>soon i go out of state to a competition with my middle school showchoir
>this is when it happened
>B had come over to my house to try and appease my mom by giving her a mother's day present and helping her clean the house
>somewhere along the line mom had to run an errand and told B he could go home
>he didn't go home
>B stays at my house and goes into my room
>apparently i didn't clean up before i left and had left some period stained panties on the ground
>i can only imagine B with his fucked up blood fetish and pedophilia popped a massive boner right there
>he uses my bloody underwear to masturbate on my bed
>he even cums on my bed but cleans it up
>when i get back from the competition B says he needs to tell me something, but he's afraid I'll hate him for it
>i tell him i'll love him no matter what
>he describes this entire situation to me in great detail when i arrive back from the competition
>i'm very shocked but at the same time blinded by my stockholm syndrome induced love
>i'm texting him about this when my mom's Protective Parent Senses are activated
>she asks to see my phone (which was actually an ipod because i was too young to have a phone, apparently)
>instead of admitting to her that i had become involved in an abusive relationship with B, i hide the phone
>at this point, she knows something is wrong
>she tries to grab it and i smash the ipod on the ground to try and break it
>the glass shatters but i can see that the screen still turns on
>i grab it and make a break for the backyard where we have a small pool
>drop the ipod in the water and collapse, crying my eyes out
>my mom is seething with rage
>"you just made a big mistake, anon"
>she drives all the way to B's house and interrogates him, finds out everything
>this was the final straw and i'm no longer allowed to talk to B
>12 year old me is absolutely distraught because B had told me that i would never find love with anybody but him because i was so clingy and immature, and as stupid and naive as i was, i believed him
>i pulled quite a few stunts to try and talk to him again
>some of these stunts included making chicken scratches on my wrist
>my poor parents who had no clue what do do agreed that if i could go a month without breaking the rules they had given B, i could have limited contact with him
>yet this isn't enough for B and he insists that we simply wait until nighttime to communicate
>one night he is fed up with me not sending nudes because he sent me a shirtless photo, "it's only fair"
>he screams at me and tells me he'll break up with me if i don't put out
>guilts me into doing it by saying he's gotten a blowjob from his best friend and his dog, and if i wouldn't at least send him nudes i was no better than them
>mfw i participated in the creation of child pornography
>he send me a video of him masturbating
>essentially had my first erotic experience taken by a weeaboo sexual predator
>cry myself to sleep
>but at least he didn't break up with me, right
>the cycle of him bullying me into sexual favors and then buying me gifts continues
>he even pins me to his bed at his trailer (his roommates kicked him out) only stopping whatever he was going to do when my little sister walks in and asks what he was doing
>he also ended up pulling some similar stunts on my little sis, such as telling her he popped a boner after giving her a piggyback ride
>she was 9 years old when he did this to her
>cycle continues until my mom realizes it's happening again
>i tell her i feel trapped because he's taken my purity away from me and i can't give it to anyone i really love anymore
>mom prints out a list of abuse tactics
>realize B has used every single one
>mom consoles me and i take the initiative and tell B to stop stalking me and that i wasn't going to talk to him anymore
>he's very angry and he sends me images of celery stalks to mock me (at least that part was kind of funny)
>by the time i'm 13 going on 14, about to enter high school, he still isnt over it
We still don't know and they have massive guilt over it today. I wish they had been more strict even when I was cutting over this cunt but I've long since forgiven them since it was partially my fault too
>he attends conventions that he knows i will attend
>sneaks up behind me to try and scare me into leaving
>it worked the first time
>for 2 years after the debacle i had a panic attack if i ever saw him, successfully ruining my good time at cons
>finally my parents bring the police into the picture
>he doesn't know i've deleted every instance of us talking over social media because it gave me flashbacks
>based parents take advantage of this
>they tell him they'll show the police all the evidence of his abuse if he doesn't fuck off forever
>at last, scared by the prospect of being jailed, B ollies the fuck out of my life
>takes 5 years of counselling to get fully over it
>during this time i had developed an intense fear of men and dated quite a few girls, upsetting my christian parents
>still consider myself bisexual but ultimately overcame my intense androphobia
>obviously not underaged anymore and have a kind, employed boyfriend who is willing to wait until i'm ready to do anything of a sexual nature since it still wigs me out
>B is now a genderqueer pansexual child predator on tumblr, constantly complaining about not having anybody to love and flirting with underage snowflakes who buy into his new tactic
>mfw he's completely unsuccessful in love, in his job, in his education, and in his family
>mfw he was completely wrong about everything he said about me
>mfw im living a happy and promising life and he's not
And I never posted a new song to iTunes or met up with strangers at cons ever again.
Never let underage kids hang out with adults.
But anon, some people have reasons for not wanting to bang every willing participant they come across
In this case there were definitely more reasons than usual
The Ouran one is the least cringe of these. One time I had to do a project for a science class about climate change and alternative energy. We were supposed to make a commercial, so I strung together a bunch of sad environmental impact images... accompanied by this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6TWUjtbb9E
Someone later told me I could have a future in politics for pulling this crap.
>genderqueer pansexual child predator
Still if he's creeping around I hope he gets caught. I love these threads and it's safe to say the majority of people don't act like this but im lying if the legitimately bad shit like this doesn't make you have second thoughts about who you talk to. Just a little at least.
Just saw this on another thread, it probably actually belongs here.
Jesus. Fucking weebs.
