    Default Anyone else's family not get it?

    Does anyone else have a family that makes fun of them for liking what they like? For example, my mom just asked if I wanted to go see "The American" or "The Town" with her and my brother, neither of which I have any particular interest in. When I declined, my mom made it out like it was because I didn't want to see HER for the week she was in town, and started in on me because "Oh, you just don't want to go because it doesn't have magic and elves and and dragons and Pokemon and all that stupid shit."

    Gee, thanks, MOM. Anyone else have issues with family mocking them for being "childish" or whatever?


    (Sorry if this is the wrong place.. I couldn't quite figure out where it goes...)

    My dad sometimes amkes fun of the fact that I like Pokemon.
    Here are the ways he does it:
    1: He purposly says Pokemon as "PokEmon" and stresses the entire word.
    2: He says to me "Alexandra, I see that you like POKEMON." I practically die from embarassment whenever he says that DX

    And yes, my name actually is Alexandra. But don't use my name as something against me.

    My parents give me shit for gaming all the time (and they don't even know I still like Pokemon...)

    It's annoying but I've learned to ignore them. And I'm away at school most of the time anyways so it's not a big deal.

    Back when I was in my anime-craze days my family made fun of all those "weird Japanese cartoons." I don't watch as much nowadays, so they don't bring it up anymore. My dad finds my like of horror movies odd because no one else in our household does. (And is surprised Pokemon is still going on. When my sister was watching my Orange Island DVDs he was like "Holy crap, this is still on? I remember when you used to watch this stuff.")

    My parents know I like Pokemon but they don't really seem like they could care less. But I do think they wonder why I still like it at this age.

    Who cares what they think
    We are the ones that decide what to like and what to not like

    My mom gets kinda pissy when it comes to my gaming habits, but hey, it's what I like. It's either video games or drugs, and I prefer video games. My mom & I also have differing tastes in movies; based on the previews, I usually decide on a movie I wanna see, but whether or not the other wants to see it, we still go see it regardless. Usually it ends up being great. (Like I didn't want to see Avatar (the one with blue people), but I ended up liking it in the end.)

    Sometimes mine. They mostly don't say anything but when they do it's pretty hurtful.

    Agreed Felly.
    So my parents don't mind.
    But they get pissed about my gaming habits.

    Thanks.

    My family doesn't make fun of me, but my mom says I spend too much time doing pokemon stuff when I should be doing stuff with my friends and helping the community and stuff. But pokemon is so much more interesting. :P
