GF's little sister came over with a bunch of packs of Korean instant noodles for us to try out, on account the sister being... What's the Korean version of a weeaboo?

These noodles were apparently somewhat well-known for actually having a little spice to them, which she figured we would appreciate. The one version, a "2xSpicy" flavor, is also supposedly part of some YouTube challenge? I dunno, as a millenial I try to avoid anything involving challenge. You know how it is.


I got to eat the 2xSpicy one because I complain about things not being spicy enough. I'm a bit out of practice, so it was actually noticeably spicy! The bag said it's only around 8,800 Scoville, but I guess that's enough to turn on my mouth's automated sprinkler system these days. Winter's ice and snows kinda blocked us off from the one nearby eatery that can actually do spicy food, so this was a nice change of pace.

Weeaboos are white people who try (and fail miserably) at emulating Japanese culture.

Yes, that I know. I mean the meaning of the word itself. Why it's "weeaboo" and not "frankenfurther".

EXCUSE ME SIR we do not exclude non-white people from weeaboo-hood. Anyone can be a weeaboo, if their heart is pure and true and full of western ignorance.

My apologies, of course you are correct.  There is of course, a single exception:  Western gaijin raised persons of Japanese pedigree, who are ethnically Japanese, but not natively culturally so. (But who still wish they could be REAL Japanese.)  These have a special designation, even in Japan.

I've heard the term "banana" before, but that's a slightly broader categorization.

I called someone a dildo-snorking weeaboo once, as a means of differentiating them from other, lesser weeaboos who were also present. I assume this is not standard terminology.

Weeaboo (a.k.a Wapanese) is an English slang used to describe a person (typically of non-Asian descent) who prefers Japan and all things in Japanese over one's indigenous culture.

doesn't this sound exactly like say, white people who run around looking like they're out of hip-hop videos, or like non-Americans who only like American stuff rather than their indigenous culture?

One of the most common attitudes here among dumbasses here is "everything American is better". Which is, USAboo i guess? So, Weeaboos here are called out for having sold out, but not because they sold out, but because they sold out to the wrong thing, when they "should have" sold out to Americanized Hip-Hop culture like the rest of the drones.

We have terms for those as well, though I am told they are considered less ok to use these days. Weeaboos are Japanese-centric, specifically.

No, you like what the people in your home town/country tell you to like, and if you like other stuff you're a filthy <whatever>

Another problem i have with "weeaboo" is the same as with the anti-furry-hate. It's usually other, equally despised by the mainstream sub-cultures "punching down" at what they consider an easy target. It has obvious parallels with one explanation for why poor whites hate so much on poor blacks: by having someone lower on the status-ladder you can pretend that you aren't on the very bottom.

The actual mainstream isn't making much if any distinction between weeaboos and the gamer/geek culture that calls others weeaboos. It's also handy in that the term weeaboo can be a racist dismissal of Japanese culture in general, while pretending to not be racist at all by dog-whistling that you're only "concerned" by the inauthentic nature of white Japanese-stuff fans.
