Well, we're all a little crazy, aren't we? I mean, we each stockpile hordes of little plastic robots. That's pretty weird in the grand scheme of things. But, like many have said, TF fans are not as "out there" as Trekkies, for example. We're more grounded and intellectual about our hobby, and, surprisingly, most of us even have moderate social skills. Still, every group has its nutjobs.
That said, I don't really consider myself all that normal. I have somewhere around 1200 TransFormers in my room. I write poetry, and one day I'll finish the novel I've had kicking around in my head for ten years. My sense of humor is a bit out there. Don't talk to me about sports, I don't know what you're talking about. I havent seen a full game of any sport (not counting the Olympics) in over ten years. I usually volunteer to work on Superbowl Sunday. I share a house with a gay computer scientist, a dredlocked lesbian, three cats (GusGus, Jack, and the Ripper), and a dog named Mary Jane. I'm a geek, and I'm proud of it.
If you wanna see some truly weird
sights, come visit me and we'll drive down to New Orleans and walk Bourbon Street where you can behold boys dressed as girls, girls dressed as boys, people dressed as statues, animals, fairies, and some that just wear bodypaint. Try having a 'normal' conversation with that.
You know, back in the 90s on a.t.t., Raksha wasn't all that bad. Some of her writings explaining the Decepticons as the oppressed heroes were kinda interesting and made use of evidence from canon. Then, of course, you have BW Megatron's speech from "Agenda": "a day of reckoning with those who made us slaves" etc. Of course, I'm sure Raksha would object to the use of anything BW, even if it did support her case. So she had a snake, I think that's pretty badass. So she was pro-Decepticon, lol, so am I. She was just a really unique person, and, sadly, she was one of those die-hard G1 fans that could not bring themselves to transform with the times. It's worth noting, however, that she (and several others from those days) are largely responsible for building the foundation of the online TF collector community and for making BotCon a reality. Our fandom would not be what it is today if it wasn't for those super-dedicated Geewunners of old, weird though they may be.
