What are some things that people obsess about that you just don't get?

Me: Homsetuck (which will be the new Iceglow of EoFF), dubstep, Mass Effect, TOMS shoes, Tyra Banks, yaoi, and Ron Paul.

Tumblr makes you a very bitter person. :(

Laddy you are my favorite person because the title of your thread reminded me of this

As for me, um... most of the stuff in your post, actually. Also a ton of games like DotA, Dark Souls etc.

Why do so many people obsess about their hair? Especially annoying when you can't grab someone's hair when you're bouncing.

Hmm, anyway. I don't much care for this Harlem Shake nonsense.

Most things to do with fashion.

Also, because I am a terrible, terrible person: Depressing things on the news. I get it, it's bad, I should care. But you know what? I want to live a happy life and if I spend all my time getting upset over the crap that exists in the world, I will spend all my time upset. So, sorry people dying around the world, but... *switches channel*

Designer anything. Designer anything. There are about three brands that I actually like because they fit me well or make products exclusively and so I'm loyal to them, but all of this smurfing Gucci Chanel D&G Tori Birch trout just makes me sick and I don't understand it. Babies. What prestigious school you've gone to that your parents paid for and most of the time, what you studied there. Handbags. Expensive handbags. Having a plethora of handbags.

I used to not get what the big deal about shoes was but I've begun collecting shoes in the past few months and now I'm a little bit addicted and running out of space to keep them.

I'm all for being entertained by someone acting stupid on the internet, but if it devolves to, "LOL LOOK AT THIS GUY HAVING AN INTEREST I DON'T APPROVE OF," that can get annoying.

It's overly girly-looking dudes in poorly-written and often downright abusive relationships.

My parents watch. I live in a cramped apartment with them. Only relevance required... until I can afford to move out.

I'm actually with Laddy on this one. I don't mind gay relationships or if you want to ship two male characters together in a relationship if you believe that they have that sort of chemistry, but Yaoi anime and manga in general is almost always abusive and heads down into rape territory.

A couple of Yaoi anime's I've watched the more dominate male basically puts the weaker male into uncomfortable sexual situations that would throw a real life person in jail. In one Yaoi the poor male was crying and feeling upset so the dominate male just basically threw the weaker male down and put his hand down inside pants and touched his " you know " and basically raped him. And then we are supposed to believe that this is romantic and passionate ??!

No, just no.

Who's saying it has to be romantic and passionate? Some people just have rape fantasies and in yaoi, they can get that!

Laddy

Yaoi is written for straight women by straight women and represents little of what actual gay relationships are like. In the end, they tend to objectify and oversimplify gay relationships to a degree.

Yes, it's a fantasy. I get that, but it's not emphasized enough that it doesn't represent any healthy relationships.

EDIT: They aren't portrayed as rapist and victim, though. These relationships are often portrayed as a pair of star-crossed lovers and an ideal romance to aspire to.

You only need to read thecloudyday89's blog entries to see how rapey Yaoi is.
