Personally it makes me almost cry for the future of my gender. Then I realize the amount of pollution in the air now and doesn't matter, all men will become impotent from the pollution soon. (I got to stop reading those science magazines, all they do is scare me)

You shouldn't bash gay people. I would think they are at least a coulple people who are gay on this forum. So, I wouldn't say stuff like that here.

Besides, there is nothing wrong with being gay, society is just ruled by a bunch of ignorant losers that think otherwise.

Yeah, that's another thing that get's on my nerv's (hahaha what a funny pun). I don't like it because If I was in that situation, that's how I would want to be treated. Now I'm am confident in my sexuality, and really it doestn't mater what other people think. No offense of course, I understand why someone would think I am gay.

Why, because we can and you can't, or that you think guys are stupid for doing it in general because they have a major crush/obsession with a girl that would appeal to their personalities, and the fact that shes exposed, and comatose and probably wouldn't mind/care if guys "beat it off" over them.



Look, I'm not saying it's bad, and if you have no shame in admitting that you do it, then more power to you, I guess. What I was trying to say was that if I were a guy, it's just not something I'd be proud of. But that is simply just me, so let's... just leave it at that. I hope I haven't just offended a bunch of the guys here... >.> <.<

I can't deny anything, statisticaly 99.5 % of the male population does it, so all guys are wankers! - "Not the verb though" -

Atleast not this one.....

And someone posted something about he/she not minding gay people, - yea, as long as it's the opposite sex! - And NNNOOOOO! being impotent is not better than being gay! Infact, if I had been impotent, I would have shot myself a long time ago!

Play nice, children. My finger is starting to itch.

BTW, did you know that masturbation is an inherently homosexual behavior? So, all you wankers out there (both male and female), remember that you are sexually pleasing someone of your own gender AND (probably) getting off to it, too. You know what that means, right?

Now, stay on topic, bitches.

Here is an article from Newtype that I though fit here nicely. Now you can truly tell if you are a hardcore fan of Eva.
Hardcore in five easy steps
For every enthusiast activity, there’s a pecking order- and anime is no different.
At the bottom are the ignorant passes: These are the people who buy one or two anime DVDs a year, often unwittingly, sometimes by mistake. Above them are the casual fans: a slightly smarter bunch who are familiar with the term “anime” but only follow the most popular, mainstream shows. The next level up are the serious fans: folks who read anime magazines (ahem), peruse anime websites, sometimes preorder their titles, occasionally join an anime club and try to attend at least one anime con a year. Then there are the elite: the hardcore.
Now, you might think that being the editor of an anime magazine automatically catapults me into the “hardcore” category. Well, think again. To be hardcore is one of the toughest achievements in anime fandom. It takes a Herculean effort to trundle through the tangle of contradictory and seemingly arbitrary requirements to join this lofty group. While I might consider myself one of the most “serious” anime fans I know, I am not hardcore.
I’m guessing the majority of people reading this page are in the same category as me-serious fans who fall just shy of hardcore. Bu that doesn’t mean you can’t aspire to hardcore status. In fact, I’ve been doing a bit of research on hardcore fans lately, and I’ve compiled five quick requirements that will help you achieve this goal. While this list is by no means comprehensive, it will guarantee you admission to the ranks of anime elite- if you manage to satisfy all five. Remember, it’s not enough to just have one or two of these requirements under your belt. We’re talking about being hardcore here, after all.

You must have two DVD players. Well, duh. Who doesn’t? And when you include PCs and game consoles, that number jumps even higher. But see, sheer volume isn’t good enough. To be truly hardcore, you need to satisfy three more conditions: 1.Both DVD players must be in the same room, hooked up to separate TVs (or monitors). 2. At least one of them must be able to play Region 2 discs. 3.You must use both DVD players to simultaneously watch an original Japanese release alongside the US version in order to irrefutably prove your assertion that one frame is missing from episode 572 of Sailor Moon, then immediately hop onto your favorite message board to rant about various conspiracy theories related to this missing frame.

You don’t like dubs. Look, I’m a proud dub fan. I refuse to work when it comes to my favorite form of entertainment, and reading all those icky subtitles really makes my lips sore. But this isn’t yet another rehash of that tired old sub/dub debate. Go ahead and like what you like- it’s all good to me. However, to rank among the hardcore, you must hate, hate, hate dubs. You must abhor them with such passion that you’re apoplectic over the fact that the simply exist- even though the vast majority of anime DVDs include a perfectly acceptable subtitle track, complete with an accurate translation and original Japanese voices. Still you must grouse about specific voice actors butchering the performance on a dub track that you apparently refuse to watch. You must know more about dubs than those who watch them, because you’re an expert on everything that’s wrong with them. (Bonus hardcore points: If you’ve ever prattled on about the poor quality of dubs while waiting in line to get a US voice actor’s autograph at your local anime con, then you are among the hardcore elite.)

You know what “ADR” means. It’s not enough to know what an ADR director does. You have to know what those three letters actually stand for. And you have to be willing to do the quick research to find out what other shows a particular ADR director has worked on (then again, you should probably already know). While we are at it, you need to be the type of person who reads every last line of credits, down to the freakin’ copyright, in hopes of gaining some sort of insight into the production process. It’s almost as if, buried in those credits is a mystical assortment of factoids to justify your feelings about a particular show. (Yes, I realize this requirement seems to contradict the one directly above it, since the credits are as much about the US production as the original Japanese one, but if you’re to count yourself among the hardest of the hardcore, you’ll have to accept that you’re a bundle of delightfully enigmatic contradictions.)

Your interest in a US release is in direct proportion to the quality of the collector’s box. What is it with hardcore anime fans and chipboard boxes? And just what is “chipboard” anyway? The way this magical material is discussed online, you’d think it’s composed of pixie dust, catnip, gold shavings and crack cocaine. Now, as a “serious” anime fan, I’ll be the first to admit how tickled I am when a quality show comes in a sturdy collector’s box. I like the way they look on my shelf. I like to collect them. But if I want a show, I want that show. In other words, I want the content of the DVD more than the sturdiness of the box it comes in. But that’s not good enough if you want to be hardcore. You must be willing to walk away from a purchase simply because the collector’s box isn’t hearty enough.

Your complaints are in inverse proportions to your purchases. So you get online and gripe. Then gripe some more. Then gripe about how others are griping about things that you wish you thought of griping about first. But here’s the thing: That title you’ve been carping on? You’ve preordered it- and despite your bilious protestations and furious promises to import Region 2 DVD because it is more “pure,” you will still buy said title.

And there you have it: five easy steps to vault you into the elite ranks of the hardcore anime fan. Think I’ve missed some other key requirements to being hardcore? Send me your thoughts at [email protected], and mark the subject line “hardcore.”

It's all right. You can speak her name without her magically appearing behind you and snapping your neck with her bare hands.

Thankfully, I will never, ever satisfy their requirements for "hardcore". I am content to occupy my own bizarre, undefineable niche -- something so peculiar that it has probably never existed before I hit the scene.

I wouldn't consider myself hardcore. I personally don't own any anime related material except my Yu-Gi-Oh card collection from 3 years ago.
