Is there something wrong with a man openly displaying his heterosexuality with a G-rated poster of a beautiful female character he's attracted to?

To be honest, I'd find it more strange if the owner of the poster was female, although I wouldn't object to it.

Also, please don't hotlink next time. Use Imgur or another filehost instead.

Not really sure why you think there is anything wrong with it, walls are meant to be covered with posters after all

But yeah, nothing weird about that, I have seen crazier posters on my friends walls before and no one seems to care so, go put it up!

This is good advice, at least as long as you like sports.

Having a touch of "eccentricity" next to "normal" things just makes for an interesting balance and contrast.

It's only if your room is loaded with nothing but anime/anime-related imagery that (most) people will think you're weird.

Some random person might see it as a man displaying his bestiality fetish by having a poster of a furry

Indeed, and it would probably be at least a little off-putting for most people to walk into a room completely covered in posters and filled with paraphernalia of any singular topic. It signifies a certain obsessiveness that few people can identify with. And if the images and items happen to all be of something they're not even familiar with (or might have misconceptions about), then all the more-so.

I realize your comment is tongue in cheek, but I have to wonder; would people react like that to moderate "furry" features such as the ones Holo possess if they hadn't seen anything like it before? I'm too "inside the bubble" at this point to really tell.

Right. Most people are put off by the image of obsessiveness moreso than they are of any one particular interest/entertainment form. A couple anime posters next to a couple sports posters probably won't cause your average person to even bat an eyelash (unless the anime posters are extreme furry hentai or something like that ). But if your room is a veritable shrine to any one particular thing (even if that thing is sports, as mainstream as it is), it'll get people raising eyebrows.

Good point. I actually think someone totally ignorant of anime would assume the Holo poster to be just a nice piece of artwork. Honestly, it's one of the safer pieces of anime artwork you could go with as a bedroom poster, imo.

It's Holo, so it is automatically not weird and perfectly acceptable!

In fact, I would be uneasy if you were to hide it from view.

I wouldn't think it's weird at all. What I'm actually finding weird in my case is that I have no posters at all in my room (the owners of the house forbid me to put up any "to keep the walls clean from tape marks etc."). I'd love to have anime posters in my room, so put yours up for the sake of us out there who can't put up any.

That said, my entire figurine collection and its respective colorful boxes are all arrayed in my room. I even have an oppad as my mousepad but nobody gives me any flak about all these - and I'm not hearing any comments from my family about weird stuff in my room. But posters? Can't have 'em.

You're describing a hikkikomori's room, yes? I'd definitely agree that once you reach those levels, people will definitely question many things. I should upload recent pictures of my room at some point though; even this anime-depraved community has no problems with it.

I think the whole "furries" thing has been blown up ridiculously on the internet, and as such people may react in the wrong way, yes. It's become a derogatory term to anyone that voices certain types of personal opinion, and it'd easily transition incorrectly into real life. However, anyone with a semblence of understanding of what happens in anime will probably have no problem with it.

And hey, do as I do if someone questions it- answer them! Put on your game face and don't be afraid to add a little something that might interest them as well. What you should never do is push someone into liking something though.

Indeed, we were waiting for your voice to be heard.

Your poster is not weird at all, and it is a very nice-looking poster, too. You should hang it up.

In all seriousness, I feel a generic "Be yourself" won't be sufficient. People don't mean ill will when they judge you. They have only their learning and experience to guide themselves on and have an idea of what is supposed to be "proper". Requiring them to accept you would take time and interest, which unless they are close relatives or friends, they wouldn't give you more than the most superficial hints of tolerance. Thus, no, you can't be whatever you want whenever you want, because it's much more easier to regulate yourself then to expand the minds of others. Unfortunate, but that's how it goes.

However, this is your own room, outside the public domain. If you can't be free here, then you can't be free anywhere else. I also assume that people you let into your room will understand you more, and you can adjust as needed.

As for everyone else; well, if they wanted to not like you, nothing will change. They'll find a reason to not like you anyways. But that's okay; most of the people you come across you have no use for, and acting socially acceptable is simply the tool we need to get whatever use we have from those that aren't willing to accept you for who you are. None of that applies when you're in your own room. They can go back to their own room and fuck themselves. (which they will, most likely to 2-d pictures of "real" people but it's still an image )

Tl;dr Let the willfully ignorant remain ignorant. Truth to them would be like poison, and it's not up to you to compensate for what they lack.

What's the limit of the number of posters you can hang up in your room though?

Some of those people would likely epitomize those single-minded hives of obsessiveness , but a strong, focused presence of any sort of fandom in a room will likely have people who see it making snappy judgments, whether they be positive or negative. I agree that it's best not to let that sort of thing bother you, but you have to keep it in mind and be ready for it when you choose how to decorate your humble abode.

There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with that poster: I asked around, and it seems perfectly fine. Some of my friends (who aren't familiar with anime) said it was cool I'm sure there's going to be little flak from this poster: there are more questionable things out there that I shan't discuss.

No, no no you disgusting people.
Walls of a man accept nothing but metal band posters and playboy pin-ups, SHEESH.

Haven't you people learned ANYTHING from the 80s teen movies!?

Sports posters are for jocks, video game posters are for nerds, and anime posters are for pedos. Obviously.

........... Figures don't count!

Do you think that would be weird for a guy to have in his room?
My basic answer is no ... its pretty innocuous for a poster (Horo in a wheat field fully clothed). No more so than having any other cartoon or comic poster. The story is even pretty safe -- merchant encounters a demi-goddess in his travels, he helps her in her quest to return home.

I have several Touhou wallscrolls, and a large display of figures, and I don't care if people see it. Not that I really need to worry about that since I live on my own and don't have random strangers coming in to my house, let alone my room.

If you do have people visiting, they're going to be a stranger or family, in which case who cares about their opinions, or a friend, which can be replaced if they don't take kindly to your hobbies. It's a non-issue.
