Weeaboos Are Very Offensive

So I live in SouthEast Asia here in the Philippines and I come from a Jap-Fil descent. I’m very proud of it and while I watch anime and read manga, I don’t take it to the extent to that of weeaboos because I know my limits whenever I’m around people who don’t like anime and manga, but many of my schoolmates still respect me and I have many friends within my batch.

Now, I remember being approached by this girl from my batch while I was practicing my strokes and reading about sentence construction in Japanese (I’ve been studying with my dad for 5 months, at the moment I’ve already memorized Hiragana so I’m moving on to Katakana) and she was this girl who I knew was a huge weeaboo. She tried so hard to get close to me just because I was part Japanese, and this really offended me. She would always say, “Oh my gosh, you know this anime!?” and I would just wave her off saying, “I’ve heard of it.” and continue reading or drawing, whichever I was doing at the time she would come to me.
