…sort of. Crushable, a celebrity gossip blog, was taking a look at the book Freak Nation, which talks about 1,000 of the subcultures they deem the strangest in America. Sadly, I am not talking about Ani-Bloggers here, as we’re more global then an American thing. Although the author isn’t completely unaware of the world of American anime culture–cosplayers did make into the book.
Crushable from there chose what they thought were six of the weirdest cultures. One of those was the cartoon porndog, people who are sexually aroused by adult comics and/or erotic cartoons.
Dude, we are so busted.
The biggest error I see here is the idea that the most “cartoon porndogs’ are male. Somehow when the author did her research, she manages to miss the outrageous amount of gay porn out there that is consumed by the female populace. Probably because she didn’t delve too deep. I’m not sure if I understand, or am ashamed that a women who wants to do a field guide on her subjects wasn’t willing to do the full out research. To be honest, a lot of the cartoon porn out there scares me!
Still, although I’ve been outed, Ms. Kate has an amusing sense of humor, and my freaky sub-culture gets to also be featured with some other fabulous sub-cultures, such as Rennies, Yarn Bombers, and 501 Legionnaries. I am honored.
