>>2695>not because it's offensive either
Maybe you haven't seen it before, but in my experience, usually when white people discuss the concept of a weeb, offesivness comes up. >their attitude seems to be to just make fun of the concept
That's supports my argument that it's all in westerners' head.
What I find even more interesting is the disconnect between some American born Asians and native ones. They're embued with western mindsets while still having false pretenses about their identity. They're the ones who get offended when they see white people in a kimono making a peace sign or something. People in the states lack the concept of cultural saturation. They think blood alone makes you one thing or another without understanding the us vs them mentality many foreigners have. Living your whole life among your own and absorbing that culture is all part of their larger sense of "identity". To be considered Japanese, you have to have the blood, nationality, language and culture. Otherwise, they don't consider you be one of them. Same goes for Italians to some extent. Despite that, you still see people getting mad or trying to act as "representatives" without understanding this. Meanwhile, there's Japanese people dressing up as Nazis for fun and not giving a soykaf.
