Topic starter, why out of all Doom unrelated avatars would you single out only animeme ones?

It's a semi-recent fad, like those fish avatars from back in the day. More specifically, according to @Walter confetti, he is the "Starter of 2016 Love Live / anime avatar revolution".

 

Yeah, it all started with me using this picture of Rin Hoshizora from Love Live doing weird faces and then... Important people from the community (like Esselfortium, Tarnsman, Csonicgo and some other people in the forums) started using avatar from this show, liking the wacky and weird nature of cast from that show (iiirc) and then other people in the forums started using anime avatars creating that famous new fad, that like here just opens discussions and even one day Linguica deleted all the anime avatars for some reason I don't remember now...

I think it's cool to hate "anime fetishes" these days.

 

I've seen others using these words to bash users sporting anime avatars in many places.

Just providing some cold, hard evidence for Walter’s claims:

People have Avatars of what they're somewhat sexually attracted to.

 

Mine's a Robot.

 

My avatar is a drawing I made for the sole purpose of being my avatar.

 

So I'm attracted to myself if I'm wearing a suit and a helmet? OH GOD.

Technically the fish avatars were anime pictures, too.

My profile picture is basically a custom figure *not mine* of the Fighter class from Hexen. I do plan on making another profile picture this time though.

At the time I didn't know what the hell was going on with all the avatars and my main point of reference was the 4chan / gamergate obsession with anime girls and the whole thing seemed like an unsavory fad. I had to be convinced to let the anime run free. Also my avatar is NOT anime it is just the two main characters from the Doom movie in love with cartoon hearts for some reason.

What disturbs your prefrontal cortex so much? It's  because you are too pretty for wearing anime avatars?

Frank Zappa is my favorite anime

 

I thought that was Richie Blackmore... Anyways. And I seem like one of the veeeeeery few people who don't like anime at all. Just not my cup of tea, I prefer watching Who Wants To Be A millionaire and sports instead lol. I watch some movies though. 

 

As of what I have picked, I pick a Baron Of Hell on a lot of places unless I feel like I have to place my IRL pic. I don't know why the baron is my favorite Doom monster.

"Why do so many of you guys have Heavy Metal PFP's?"

 

"I like heavy metal okay, it's not satan worship or anything weird, it's just what I like, okay?"

 

"Why do so many of you guys have Cartoon Fish PFP's?"

 

"I like cartoon fish okay, it's not fishy worship or anything weird, it's just what I like, okay?"

 

Spoiler

This topic seems geared to get people worked up, whether intentional or not. Why won't Op-sempai notice us *cries*
