What makes western otaku fanbases so aggressive towards each other? I'm not saying japanese fans don't fight, but they seem more willing to keep to themselves.
It feels like a lot of western fans are very eager to throw shit at one another. And even if you disregard franchise tribalism there's still excessive infighting within these communities.

Gatekeepign is literally the only thing that kept the western Touhou fandom from turning completly to shit in the 2010s. Gatekeeping also kept vtumors and others from /jp/ before 2020.

because western supposed "otaku" are a bunch of cringe losers for the most part, especially the teenage weebs that think they have a clue and basically grew up watching anime and don't have a very good grip on reality

It's a dying civilization, people just want to use everything as a proxy for power politics to get at "the other".

Are they? I keep myself pretty isolated.

is the Japanese scene anything different? I mean, from an outsider's perspective, it seems that most of them are in agreement that hobbies and realpolitik should be separated from each other. I listened to this obscure podcast before that the Japanese otaku scene was split into two factions around the 70/80s, the otaku people who are more nihilistic on their outlook separated themselves to those who wanted Anime and Manga to be used as a propaganda piece for marxist agenda or something like that but I don't know if it's real or not. I do know that leftist movements were absolutely strong in Japan in the 70s

If you still don't realize what the fundamental incompatibility between Western "culture" and Japanese is, you're never going to make it.
Maybe just stop posting and lurk another 10 years.
