    Perhaps not ugly, but they can be annoying and/or immature.

    Anyone else notice (be it on facebook, msn or video games) all the girls who use smileys like =3 and >.> all watch anime, have dyed hair (to try and look like an anime character) are ugly, are teenagers, are tomboys, play video games and share other characteristics?

    Seriously, every time I see one of them (do they have a name?) I know what's up... I don't think I've ever seen a girl use one of those smileys and NOT have this personality
    I know a girl who uses those emoticons a lot, has dyed hair, is obsessed with anime, and pretty much does everything you mentioned in that post. She also happens to be the most attractive person I know. Seriously, she's really beautiful. (And no, we're not dating, so I have no ulterior motive for saying that.)

    And the word you're thinking of is probably "weeaboo". But they don't tend to like being called that

    I like to think I'm not ugly (apparently I'm quite pretty but idk...) but I have to agree with the OP to a certain extent. I love anime (my username makes that pretty clear), I use those emoticons all the time, and I do enjoy videogames :3 I'm not too sure why that annoys you though, loads of people have these interests but they have other interests too, you should get to know someone before you immediately dismiss them as being annoying people that you wouldn't get along with, everyone's different!

    Ok not all ugly, but they share a lot of these qualities. The smileys especially suck
    I do agree with the qualities except for the ugly bit I'm not gonna lie all the girls I know that are like this are attractive :lol:

    It's because it's a stereotype people play to. I don't like any group people try to be a part of, be it scene kid, emo, hipster, chav, etc. Maybe you think that's not the case but I find it hard to believe these weeaboos or whatever share all these qualities by coincidence.

    I know the kinds of girls you mean. I've heard people say similar things, but personally I think it's pretty hit-and-miss, sometimes I really dig it. Also, as long as it isn't used mostly as a way of getting male attention, girls who play video games are the best kind of girls.

    I used to use things like -_- and xD quite a lot when I was younger, I guess I just needed to grow out of it. "xD" in particular I severely regret my overuse of, perhaps because the only other person I know who still uses it is annoying as ****.

    Oh hi there you.

    Mine's going blue pretty soon I reckon. I'm a little bored of purple and pink.

    OP, I use XD etc sometimes, and I'm not ugly. Perhaps not drop-dead gorgeous, but not ugly. And I certainly do not wish to be Japanese. Maybe you should stop stereotyping - you never know when someone will do it to you and be wildly inaccurate.

    Stereotypes are based on actual groups of people. Just because it's not PC to stereotype doesn't mean they don't exist

    When did I say they didn't exist? But they shouldn't be encouraged. It's not nice to stereotype, particularly when they're simply not right. I'm not religious, but "Judge not, lest ye be judged" seems to be apt here.

    I didn't even know they had any connotation to Japan.

    I use them cause they look better than normal smilies. Most of my friends do too and none of us watch anime. :dontknow: Sorry, OP.
