And lately /b/ has more waifu threads (filled with my lovely Hanako) than pony threads in /mlp/, so I can see where the attention came from.
Do the waifu threads on /b/ get as strange as the stuff on /mlp? I don't go to either site and am a little curious. And it's not purely because i want more Hanako artwork.
Well... lately /b/'s waifu threads consist mainly of anime's girl's pictures. Now and then a real photograph shows up. From KS, Hanako is always there. Some of the pictures are pretty nice. Others are just meh.

/mlp/ is just. Pure madness.
What's sad is that people see that and assume that's what the entire fandom is. Almost reminds me of another fandom they do that to...

Every fandom of anything ever because no fandom is unique or special or persecuted any moreso than any other despite MLP fans comparing their "struggle" to racism and coming out of the closet? :mrgreen:

Anyway, as long as the new attention means new art, it can be allowed to continue...Even on Reddit...

I was kind of talking about us, actually. And since when is being a fan of Batman equivalent to being a fan of what is often called cripple porn in terms of persecution?

It's not about what you like. It's how you express your feelings on that subject.

All fandoms have cool people, creeps, geeks, spazzes, etc. It's impossible to generalize an entire fandom, just like it's impossible to generalize an entire race of people.

This being the random thread…

You can militarise a whole race of people. Then promote them all to the top! That would mean you've generalised all of them! Hahahaha! (Or maybe, just marshalled them together.) The opposite would be privatisation, I suppose. :lol:

Oh, it's completely possible. People do it all the time. It's just never accurate. :lol:

All fandoms are full of creepy weirdos (tumblr is really into the bad guy from The Lorax...) by the very nature of being fandoms. And the creepy weirdos are always the loudest...Especially when they insist on making documentaries about themselves and how wonderful they are like a bunch of entitled self-important douches.

KS' fandom is unique, however, in that everyone in it is a creepy weirdo by virtue of being into gross cripple porn. That's just nasty. :P

Of course, but certain fandoms come with much heavier stigmas than others. Spiderman has creepy fans, but nobody will bat an eyelash if you say that you like Spiderman. Say that you like KS, however...

Okay, jokes aside, it's probably the fact that saying what this is a hard topic. Imagine describing any topic to a stranger for this idea.

Spiderman: "He's a superhero who has the powers of a spider."
Batman: "He's a superhero who uses technology."
Superman: "He's a superhero with alien powers."
Katawa Shoujo: "Well.... It's a dating sim (first flag for "normal people") about a kid with Arrhythmia (Second flag) in a school for cripples. (Third Flag)"

That one thing made my night, haha.

I would just guess it's human nature to put people into categories.

Things that are more "socially acceptable" go by unnoticed while something that can be viewed as Abnormal is quick to be criticized.

I've been thinking about drawing more recently, both of my parents were artists, and I was an utter failure at art in both Middle and Elementary (1-8th years) to the point where I got the teacher to agree to let me draw the last or the current project in my last year at elementary (5th year). So I'm going to try to practice a bit more every day at both colouring and just sketches, trying to fill a page each day. So, of course, I started drawing a person, started at the shoes, up the legs, drew a shirt, and I ended up with a ghostly version of Shizune. D*mn it. Started on a table then drew a tea set and just sat back and closed my eyes. I also drew hands, legs, etc, but my mind kept autocorrecting anything I drew into something KS related if it could. (Emi's stockings, the courtyard's tree, and Shizune's glasses, Emi's perv face all came up. I'm also halfway through Hanako's hat) Funny how the mind works like that. Started drawing Lilly but stopped myself since the body started as a guy, so there were abs/pecs (easier to place arms and legs for me if I draw muscular features) rather than a girl. This isn't going away, is it?

Just keep drawing, pretty much :D And you should post them on the forums (if we can have a John Travolta/Misha on the fan art, as well as allowing any of my stuff on there, then I doubt there's a problem! As long as you're enjoying it, and the likelihood is that you'll improve over time :)

You can say "damn". Your pastor isn't here.

And just go on and draw dude-Lilly. :lol:

Hehe, I appreciate the encouragement, but nope. I'm keeping the drawing board to myself until I get marginally better, and when I can draw hair. Pervy Emi looks like a cancer patient with an eye surgery from H.P. Lovecraft. Kinda funny, actually. never had a problem with eyes or fists, it's shoes and hands that put me off. Of course, feet are also an issue, but only barely.

Considering how awful some of the shimmie art gets, that's hardly a deal breaker for this fandom. Just put it under the "wtf" tag or say Konflikti drew it. :lol:
