Anime fans ruined anime for me and I hate it

Same, I avoid being stereotyped in the traditional sense cuz I'm a woman but I'm still not mentioning it in random company cuz DAMN if it doesn't put a fucking target on your back in a different way. Like no bro I don't wanna hear what anime schoolgirl you think I'm like and I sure as fuck don't wanna hear you extol the virtue of female anime fans and how cool and rare they are. Or have some creep be super weird and obsessive over me for checks notes liking a type of media??? Girls liking the thing you like isn't rare, they've just spotted that you were a weirdo way before I did and decided to not engage, in which I wish I had done in many cases lol.
