Welcome to the AnimeFuel Community Forums, I'm the owner of this website Demon fox and lucky for you I'm not here to use my ninja skills on yah, plenty of time for that later I assure you. Instead I'll be telling you a little about this place.
As you should be able to tell by now you are not registered with us as of yet and probably need a good reason to do so. Between you and I we both know you're a lazy bastard and so if you don't even want to listen to the rest of my introduction speech you may as well just go register.
Otherwise here's what you can do on our forums once you've registered. When you register you will be able to chit chat in our forums, entertain yourself with games and share videos with other members. The forums allows you to get access to free downloads shared by members, fast and direct support with video problems from members and staff and make anime requests which are priortized above anyone else's.
There are many more things you can do but our aim is to bring together a community of video fans where you can feel comfortable and make lots of friends around the world. God knows you need them.
So get your butt over to the registration page and join my I mean OUR community. Oh and one more thing watch out for a crazy guy with a gun he's wandering around somewhere in these pages and you'll probably see him if you become really slack with the forum.
This message will self destruct once registration is completed.

Barbie the symbol for looks over brain stereotypes?
In West Virginia, a law maker is seeking to ban the 6 inch doll and others like it (PLEASE include Hannah Montana) from setting plastic foot into his state. His claim is that Barbie is the reason that young girls start early on trying to pamper and prim themselves to perfection, instead of focusing on their school grades or a happy lifestyle.
Even though he knows it's unlikely to pass, he still stands by it.
And this raised an idea: What would actually happen if this bill passed?
Personally, even if this bill does pass, I don't think it will change a whole lot. On t.v. you get shows about stars in music, film, t.v. You have America's Next Top Model. You have movies that perpetuate the idea of beaury over intellect (oddly enough a large number having been from Disney).
If you ban Barbie, you have to ban so much more as well. Girls really only play with dolls for so many years, and then you get into things with much stronger messages.
Assuming all this is banned, then what? In school, the beautiful students will still get more attention, more focus, and the message is there all over again, this time with insult.
So, where do you stand? What would happen should this bill pass? If more like it pass? Is Barbie really the icon that should be targeted?
