Weird anime conversation

This morning I was hanging out on one of the muds I frequent and someone mentioned anime and another person responded that anime was mostly very violent things and lots of sexual content. They said they were a big anime fan and that is what most shows were. I hadn't run into someone who was so unwilling to admit they might be wrong about that in a while. Even when mentioning a list of all the shows that just started airing and showing that there was only one show in there that might come close to this person's definition of 'very violent'. He insisted that I must be incorrect and that he was right. It was frustrating.

I thought anime was starting to get away from this stereotype.

but yeah, unfortunately there are still a lot of stupid people out there. definitely not as many, but hey, we can't stop them all from breeding now, can we };D

No, it wasn't on Dino. I like think people there are a bit more cluefull, at least when presented with accurate information.

well, i grew up watching the kind of anime that had a lot of sex and violence(that's mostly what they played at the conventions;)) i know now that that's not what anime always is, but maybe this person can't let go of his theory that all anime is...rated R? or maybe he is just stupid...but i'm just saying maybe he thinks that cuz that's all he's seen :)?
