Conventional is for stereotypes. I enjoy anthro art, however I don't think I'm part animal, nor will I give myself an asian name and cease to take showers. Anime is a style of art, not an excuse to act like a jackass.
Sure I listen to metal, but not solely metal. Limiting oneself to one genre is ignorant.
I play video games, draw, read, and I have a life. Try it, it's not that hard.
No compromise. Not even in the face of Armageddon.
