I don't want to be reminded of this. The article implies that many of those who chose 2D over 3D didn't have a choice, as if 2D were some surrogate for 3D. It also gives their readers an impression these men are delusional and somehow need psychiatric help. Obviously it's tailored for a normalfag audience, but what can you do? They think everyone who has a waifu has to have a dakimakura of her. What a joke this is. They always seem to imply that there is a sort of sexual connotation or some kind of pedophilia to all of this. I can't fap to mai waifu.
>I'm trying to pretend that I don't even notice that some of us, even though we have waifus, would still prefer to date real women.
Like I said, to some people with waifus, 2D is a surrogate for 3D. They don't really have waifus. When they say they love their waifu, they don't really love them. It's just a backup plan if they can't get 3D pigs, they might as well have their 'waifu'. For them, they would glady give up 2D in favor of a 3D pig that they feel infatuated with. As for myself, anyone can get a 3DPD. Anyone. It's just that having a waifu and giving up 3D for 2D is a choice rather than some form of compulsion.
>Pretty much everybody mentions how these people (or should I say we?) are insane, that they're pedophiles and that they should seek help from psychiatrists/psychologists.
This is why nobody else I know in real life knows that I have mai waifu. They expect me to get a 3D pig. Because if you aren't interested in 3D pigs, they label you as a pedophile, a creep, or whatever comes up in their minds.
>Why do they even care? It's not like our lives affect them.
They care because the NY Times is a liberal newspaper (which is obviously pro-3DPD) with plenty of 'humanitarian' readers who are 'willing' to 'help' people by donating millions of dollars to terrorist organizations and corrupt governments under the guise of 'feeding the poor children'. They say they don't care about a lot of things yet they still have to give a damn about the 2D thing. They're hypocrites, for a lack of a better word.
People like that are everywhere, it can't be helped.
