It probably is, even I find it a bit questionable at times.


You're asking a community where it's most normal for straight adult men to watch the most cutesy girly things ever. Do you know that most of the fans of "cute girls doing cute things" anime such as K-on are grown men? As well as things like "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic".
A lot of "magical girl" anime, even those intended for little girls (such as PriPara), are also hugely popular with adult men as well. To the point that it's become a bit of a problem among parents of those girls when the show throws in some fanservice for those adult men... Not to mention how careful parents in Japan must be to not let their young daughters fall into the trap of accidentally watching Lolicon sexual-fanservice anime, which often trick you with their super cutesy cover art featuring colorful innocent-looking little girls...
It's normal within the anime community, to like cute things no matter your gender or orientation.
If you play a game like Phantasy Star Online 2, I think people would even question if you're a man, if you don't like cutesy little girls or cute girly outfits on your female character... While majority of the good-looking male characters in the game are female players irl.

Though it also depends what you mean by "liking cute"... if you like cute things sexually, that could pose an issue in certain situations... Then that would be weird or creepy especially among female anime fans.

I would not consider someone who is into traps gay at all (unless they actually are), because the reason traps are attractive to guys is the fact that they look like cute young girls. They're attracted to their femininity (including their wide hips and tiny torso/shoulders), not so much the boy behind it.
Also the fact that many "traps" in anime are essentially looking like loli futas, rather than realistic cross-dressing men.

I think if I showed a manga which features two beautiful young adult men crossdressing, many people who love traps would not like it because even though they look feminine, they look realistic and mature which is not the appeal of "moe trap" at all.

Was gonna say we need more details but going by OPs list I didn't see a whole lot of blatant cute-porn so he'll probably turn out okay.

Don't forget that a lot of anime fans are women, too.
Also not everyone is sexually attracted to every anime character they see or admire as a character. That would be like saying all DBZ fans want to have sex with Goku, Piccolo, Vegeta, etc, because they admire them as characters... Or like saying everyone who likes Fairy Tail wants to have sex with Gray because he strips his top a lot...

Another one of these threads. Seriously?

My superior judgement tells me that yes, it's weird. and you're a power bottom.

Yes, If there was ever a neo light sign saying ''I'm gay'' It's liking cute things.

No.

"Cute" is just another way of saying "aesthetically pleasing."



To worry about such vague value judgements is almost a waste of time.

I'm a grown man (straight) and I prefer cute, girly, frilly things such as this:


to something extremely gory and nasty such as Hellsing or Afro Samurai.

Heck yeah. With headphones on! Those sexy male voices make my heart pound in ways that―

Liking lolis as an adult male is weird, but most things short of that are socially acceptable

There is nothing wrong with liking cute things.
Cute things are great.

Stop worrying about gender roles so much and just enjoy your cute things.

You doubt yourself too much. Like seriously, who cares? You like what you like. Others like what they like. It's called individuality. End of story.

Like how there are guys who like cute things, there are girls who like pervy things too.

So it's completely fine.

Yes.
Stereotypes are not always reality, and there are many girls that watch shounen anime intended for young boys (many shounen anime end up having much larger fanbase of older women), and guys that watch shoujo anime intended for young girls as well (some shoujo anime have larger fanbases of older men too).

It's just people watching what they want to watch regardless of the "gender role". Proving that the "that's for girls" or "that's for boys" is something outdated especially when it comes to non-sexual content.

I think the cute aesthetic is one of the best things in life. Anyone who doesn't like it misses out on a lot.

No problem. Some people, like the person I was replying to, needed extra help with understanding it.
