I hate anime

Blah blah meanie snob doesn't like what I like, he's an obnoxious meanie who hates everything. There. I'm summed up what I'm going to type for anyonee who'll bother to read more than 5 words of this.
The idea that people count "anime" as it's own genre is idiotic. It's a type of media. I don't care if you just like anime in general, saying that you like "anime" with zero elaboration on what kind of anime it is, is the most mindlessly vague thing ever. Calling yourself an "anime fan" is as meaningless a title as calling yourself a "music fan" or a "cartoon fan".
It's as if people expect that they'll like every anime they'll see. I can understand if you like shonen or moe, they are terribly cookie-cutter and stale genres, which is a problem in and of itself. Anime is not some monolith of perfection where every single show out there is the greatest thing ever. If you honestly expect to like every anime out there, you have no standards an terrible tastes in shows.
Moreover, most of the "anime fans" on this forum have extremely limited knowledge of what anime are out there. For people who complain about how dubs are shit all the time, it amazing how nearly every damn anime related thing I've seen on here is from something that's already been dubbed. Even when it isn't, it's usually something that's already licensed to get dubbed. It's almost as if the only reason they complain about dubs is to look like a smug bastard who's too good for English dubs. Even when they don't understand a word of Japanese and expect someone else to sub a show for them.
I know I'm probably saying all this to a site filled with people are exactly the kind of people that I keep criticizing, but I honestly hope that at least someone stops and thinks about this stuff. Maybe I am just going on about something trivial and judging people for what they like, but can you really like something if the only reason is because of an arbitrary word like "anime", "dub" or "sub"? Really?
