"Normies" Anonymous 8720

What is the actual definition of a normie? I keep on seeing that term thrown around in a derogatory way. Is it meant to mean someone who isn't very integrated into internet culture? Does it mean someone who isn't a NEET? Is it meant to mean someone who isn't into Japanese culture, or someone who was not abused as a child? for girls does it mean someone who's not a virgin?

I always wonder because irl I've had people that don't believe me when I say I watch anime because I "don't seem/look like the type" and I'm guessing what they're really trying to say is that I appear to be a normie. I've used forums my whole life and I am in a STEM major, but I definitely don't look nerdy I'd say, though I'm aware of J fashion (but don't dress in any subcultures) and sometimes keep up with that drama online. I had a decently fucked childhood. I have severe ADHD, is that "normie" or not? I don't like K pop, i drink a lot and I smoke from time to time, I grew up in forced isolation, idk what else to add.

Point is, I'd like a discussion or a clear definition over what that actually is or if it even exists. Sorry for how stupid this question is, I find it interesting.

When I think of normie I think:

>upper middle class or rich, sometimes middle class

>never had financial problems
>never gone hungry
>a loving close-knit family
>get everything they want from parents
>have a really good social and sex life
>not well-integrated into internet culture, or only know the very basics

but imo normie does not = bad person

Anonymous 8725

My view of normies is anyone who more or less follows mainstream culture. Before, maybe pre 2010 that would include internet culture/memes, but I think it's safe to say that memes are pretty normie now.

Chads/stacies are the kind of extreme fratboy/sorority girl type of hyper-normie, but normies also encompass normal people who may have STEM interests but aren't totally off the deep end in terms of social ostracism.

I think normies can be of any socio-economic background. There are poor normies and rich weirdos.

I guess, the kind of average, mild people who you would be shocked to know are interested in non-normie things.

Personally, I don't think STEM is a prerequisite for anything, just that it has a larger than average representation of weirdos. Neither do I think mental illness/disorders are a prerequisite either. I've seen some normie autists/spergs as well.

Anonymous 8726

The definition seems to vary from person to person, frankly. That probably isn't the most satisfying answer but that is how I see it. When I browsed /r9k/ years ago I saw people insisting that deodorant, makeup, and self esteem were normie concepts. When you're so far into your depression or myriad of other disorders those innocent things seem evil.

My childhood also wasn't that great; Mom with unchecked borderline personality disorder who would physically and mentally abuse me and estranged me from my father and his side of the family and only became somewhat remorseful of it this past May when he unexpectedly passed away at only 45. Goth in high school in an area where blonde, white and tan still reigns supreme as the beauty standard to this day while I'm just a hapa. My only friends growing up were boys I had known since grade school because we liked the same stuff: anime and video games. Around 2009, I felt pushed out of the nerd and goth scene once I became "pretty". No more braces, acne became manageable, and while my chest is the same size I joke that god was like, "Here, we'll make it so you only gain weight in your ass and thighs."

I went to therapy and I was able to overcome my ptsd. I'm still working things out with mom, I have a boyfriend who loves and supports me and his family is also wonderful, but I suppose by this point I would be considered "normie" because I no longer sport graphic t-shirts that showcase all of my interests and for how I look. That really blows, too. Because as cringy as this may seem, I kind of idolized those very sexy characters (Black Orchid, Mileena, Jessica Rabbit, Minerva Mink) when I was younger and they stood as inspiration for me to one day be both beautiful and intelligent.

When 2009 came, it was also the time when nerd hobbies such as cosplay and gaming were getting gentrified the infamous fake nerd girls. I felt awful when I was at uni and I tried to join the tabletop club only to be given the cold shoulder by everyone, including this really fat girl who I guess held this weird grasp over all the guys there, until I left. I went to this comic shop in Salem in my work attire since I had just been on my way home and once again, cold service and glares from everyone in there including yet another dumpy chick behind he counter. Like god forbid somebody showed up in office attire? There have been more incidents, but you get the idea. That's when I just resorted to ordering comics online.

Its this annoying shit where you feel made to choose yet you're simultaneously told "what you are", which renders any choosing a moot point.

Anonymous 8727

Same anon, but I forget to mention that once you become "successful" and you don't frequent spaces such as /r9k/ or other 'nerd' type areas with a similar outlook those people tend to turn on you. Some even turn on you the moment you get a girlfriend or boyfriend, get a job, or just try to pick yourself up and do better. My boyfriend and I both know this from experience.

I will say that obviously not all normies are bad people. I may not be able to talk with them the same way that I can with my boyfriend or people on imageboards, but they aren't inherently evil.

Anonymous 8728

>Like god forbid somebody showed up in office attire? There have been more incidents, but you get the idea.

This is hilarious and I know exactly how you feel. I would often stop into the local anime shop after work and people would give me the strangest stares. The truth is, as normie as someone may appear, you never really know just how "normie" they are until you get to know them personally, I guess.

Anonymous 8730

Same anon again, but I want to add that I don't have it out for fat girls even if it appears that way. This is just me venting frustrating shit that I've kept pent up from everyone excluding my boyfriend and therapist. Its the reaction I have because all I did was try to purchase something or try to befriend people only to have it thrown in my face over how I look. I dislike that line of thought that some people have where they think that a person is trying to one-up them in some sorts simply because they showed up somewhere well groomed or taken care of. I dislike how when I was growing up all of the media which I consumed showed me that others "like me" (nerds) would be accepting since they experienced adversity, only to see the complete opposite from 2009 and onward. The whole feeling as if I needed to "choose" between gamergate and feminism a few years back also didn't help shit.

tl;dr I grew up sheltered, shits a mess, we're working on it.

This is my perspective of the term too. Somebody who follows the mainstream and are unaware. As others mentioned, I don't associate them as bad people. The definition seems to vary depending on the community I noticed.

This is relatable.

Anonymous 8744

Okay, see, it's the unaware part I don't totally get. If they go across the internet and engage in it, but don't come across this "normie" definition, they are normies. But what if they become aware of "normies"? Would they still retain their normie status?

Anonymous 8746

NTA, but there are normies who are aware of the term. Some shrug it off and others become irate and set out to be the antithesis in order to prove something to random people online.

"Normie" is a robot-tier term that attempts to minimize the emotional/social/physical problems of people who remember to bathe and have had a boyfriend before. All because someone else wants a special label of victimhood; if one is a normie then it's impossible for their problems to ever be as legitimate as someone who considers themselves not a normie. Normies can't legitimately be interested in certain hobbies or have quirks because that's the non-normie's identity!

It's juvenile in its origins.

IMO a normie is anyone who succeeds in these normie things/has these qualities:

>Many friends

>Good relationship with family
>Loves mainstream entertainment
>Loves mainstream social media
>Isn't crazy for animu and mango
>Only plays video games every now and then
>Has had normie sexual and romantic experiences (had sex in HS, got a GF or BF easily)
>Isn't depressed, or if was ever depressed, it didn't last long
>Doesn't frequent imageboards regularly or doesn't even know about them
>Doesn't have social anxiety
>Doesn't have a heart attack in 5 seconds when the internet provider dies

You're only a normie if you're more than three or four of these things at the same time. There's probably more to add, but I don't remember now.

I agree with you but I think for their hobbies an tastes, it also depends on how much they love it and what they love. I consider a guy who only likes COD and FIFA more of a normie than someone who likes really obscure JRPGs and dating sims that aren't even translated in something other than English, but they still both like video games. Same thing, GOT is mainstream but I don't think I'll see someone who cosplay from the show and post 10 page long theories of the show or books all the time on their blog as a normie compared to someone who just watches the show and occasionally talks about it with their friends.

I mean, it's an exaggeration, but at the same time I knew someone who did exactly that for Attack on Titan when the first season was airing. Shit was weird, but it seemed even weirder at the time because the anime became really mainstream really fast. She deleted her tumblr after getting in fights with other hardcore fans over whether some changes in the last episodes were sexist or not and it seemed to her like it was a matter of life and death.

Anonymous 8818

Not sure I agree with the socio-economic part there. As in, you can't be a normie if you're working class. Now I had a middle class upbringing myself (I mean, I never saw my parents until the late evening and they never got me anything like tutors or dance/art/music lessons so really the only benefit I had was living in a nice house, even if it was in a neighborhood where literally everyone else was at least 60) and since leaving school I've worked part time at a care home. Basically, where I live has three different populations, the middle class who take the train into London every day, the old people who have retired/live in care homes, and the people who work in the care homes. These people are certainly "normie," they have way too many kids, they care more about weekly celebrity gossip than important developments in politics, culture, and science, their speech is crass, they consume trashy media like pop movies and soap operas religiously, etc. Most telling of all is how blown away they were when I told them I don't have a boyfriend, or that I only went clothes shopping a few times a year.

Anonymous 8862

I think people have varying interpretations of the word but you can have "normal" interests without being a normie. Or no interests at all for that matter.

To me, a "normie" is something I grew up around, it denotes a certain kind of small-town mentality and it's really hard to explain but you usually feel it when you talk to someone, even if it's not in person. Like, that person has no capability of understanding others' points of view and seems oblivious to the fact that others' life experiences are different from theirs, they tend to think a lot of things are "weird" in a negative way and will shun people for having any mildly unconventional interests as opposed to their actually being bad/toxic people. They have little depth of thought and usually just go with what they're "supposed" to do in life, aren't very curious and don't like trying too many new things that aren't status symbols, etc. When you talk to a normie you feel like you have to leave out a bunch of things because they either wouldn't understand or would talk about it with their girlfriends over coffee the following morning. They may not be necessarily stupid but they sound as such.

I've plenty of friends who consume "normie" media, dress like "normies", have "normie" interests (well, 4chan's definition of normie anyway) but I wouldn't call them normies simply because they have a certain depth of thought and are accepting of people and opinions different from theirs.

I feel like I'm in the middle between normie and non-normie (or whatever u call it, fembot?). I've always been interested in Japanese media and video games, and still have these interests today. I've been using online forums/not mainstream social media ever since I was little and once again, still do today. I'm a kissless virgin, have social anxiety, and have trouble relating to other normies sometimes.
On the other hand tho, I feel like I do have some normie qualities such as a good decently sized friend group, a good social life, parties sometimes, etc. In addition I guess I look pretty normie aswell, because most people don't know that I watch anime or that I'm obsessed with some video games.
Idk where I was going with this but I guess I'm just trying to understand what really makes someone a normie aswell.

Anonymous 8951

Normie is someone who spends their day on Instagram or Facebook, don't understand wtf an imageboard is or how it works, only like mainstream music and TV shows, has had a relatively normal sex life, gets dates relatively easy and never understands dank memes.

Anonymous 8957

First you have to understand that chan culture is very contrarian in nature so you can count on the definition of "normie" being very broad given the context. In simple terms, it could be used to shit on any practice that is conventional. A conventional social life, a conventional upbringing, a convential taste in music, media etc.
When it comes down to certain aspects the term basically means nothing as society's predilections aren't exactly fixed. It's more of a reason to circlejerk over how special they r 4 lieking different things!!1!

I'm about as shut-in virgin NEET as someone on an imageboard could get, but honestly I think anime is trash and for that matter most other geek hobbies and interests are as well. Some people would probably consider me normie for that.

Averaging both, I'm just an insecure person who used sex to fill the void of low self-esteem in my teens/early 20s. Only ever slept with one "Chad" who was a frat president, but it was so obvious he was ashamed to have anyone know he was spending time around me. Pretty sure it's a frat thing to fuck loser chicks. Other than that, I've never been considered hot or sexy to get anyone above my league.

I've been in the same relationship for four years now so the sex stuff doesn't even seem relevant to me anymore. But the past still hurts, and it's even more shit that people thought I was 'normal' just because I was having sex. Some of the most troubled people I know are sex addicts.

The sex tape is a bit disconcerting but that's because I'm nervous for you should a scumbag ever get ahold of it. Unless finding a significant other and being more extroverted is important to you, I wouldn't worry.

As for normies, i think it's a term made up by people who think their interests ar ~very obscure~ and they are ~quirky~ to give people who do more normalised things kind of a title. Basically it's the reverse nerd.

For what i consider people refer to when calling someone a normie:
>goes out constantly/parties
>is well-adjusted
>has healthy circle of friends and family
>likes pop music and listens mostly to whats on the radio
>doesn't play obscure videogames
>is not (severely) socially autistic
>wears whatever is on trend at the moment/always looks good when they go out
>doesn't spend day on the internet but when they do it's mostly facebook/instagram
>takes hygiene, self-care and hair/makeup very seriously

It's basically a term made by badly-adjusted individuals to "degrade" well-adjusted (or normal) individuals so they can feel better kek.

I'm pretty glad I had those phases though for a few reasons
>discovering imageboards, I think they helped me to think a bit more critically, I'm slightly naive
>having knowledge about obscure nerdy things that I can pull up when necessary
>I really love to dance now, nothing professional though, I think doing weeby dances in my room got me started. I'm great at the club.

The meme "REEEEEE NORMIES GET OUT" has become so mainstream and overused within internet culture that ironically, only normies still use it.

Anonymous 9720

The term ends up meaning something different to pretty much every person with themselves often as the metric. Some people equate it with liking mainstream media or fashion/culture etc.

On /r9k/ it often comes down to social success so they will reee at anyone who isn't a virgin on account of them being socially integrated enough to have someone sleep with them. This also goes hand in hand with their hate for women since not only did they (as a collective) not sleep with robots but robots also believe that any woman can have sex at any time without any social proofing or difficulty on their part and so they'll always be a "normie" by default.

NTAYR, but I can answer that one. I wasn't a true stacy, but I was pretty close to it. There were periods in high school when I'd act all confident and shit - but it was all an act.

I'd actually pierce together aspects of the popular girls and the way they talked/did their makeup/treated boys and applied to my own. Sometimes it failed, sometimes it worked.

But deep inside, I'll always be a fembot. I know it, and I've made peace with it.

alright, what a normie is is quite simple. a neurotypical with a normal social standing. someone who doesn't have aspd, astigmatism and or any other disorders which would make said person awkward in the eyes of neurotypicals.

normie = normal person
robot = autist and or social outcast

My skin isn't perfect, I sometimes get spots on my face, but I've never once had traditional acne (like actual red, pus-filled lumps). "Blackheads" are the closest comparison I can think of.

This is what a normie is to me:
>no mental problems
>good social skills/healthy social life

normies grew up with both their parents
robots grew uo with only one parent
that's as simple as it can get

Anonymous 14481

lmao most robots i know who are dudes have both parents and really manly breadwinning type dads. and in general i feel like most robots tend to have those shitty nuclear family 50s style home lives.

A normie is a sheep. Not merely a person influenced by the zeitgeist as we all are, but one that is DEFINED by it.

normies to me are people who don't spend a lot of time in their own heads. that's the best way I can describe it. people who just exist.

it doesn't make them less intelligent or less interesting, but that's the thing i've noticed the most that differentiates normies from non-normies.

What kind of normies do you know? By this definition I've honestly never met a normie. I don't know about "Chads" but even "Stacies" spend time in their heads, have insecurities and whatnot.

I feel the same except it does make them less interesting. It's like they're less conscious and can't develop a unique personality. The kind of people that only like mainstream stuff.

By that definition, I've met a lot of people none of you would call normie but fit this profile.

The majority of non-normies, IME, have been just as vapid, self-centered, and materialistic as the next person. It's just a matter of if their life revolves around mainstream bullshit, or internet-culture bullshit.

Seconding this, this is probably how I'd define it.
If you can sincerely label someone as a weirdo, otaku, weeaboo, nerd, freak, goth, emo, tumblrina, etc. then they're not a normie/mundie.

"Nerd" particularly as in smart and likes a shitton of video games, anime, or other more obscure hobbies but not your reddit-tier normie "nerd" that likes american comic books (mainstream af), collects funko pops, and enjoys TV shows like Big Bang Theory or Doctor Who (also mainstream).

Liking Harry Potter also makes you normie by default, especially if you only watched the films.

>used to be 156 lbs
>can't seem to leave 164 lbs now
At least I joined a new gym, now I just need to start pushing myself more.

No matter what incels say, life is not on ez mode if you are unattractive even if you have bob and vagene. Ez mode is if nothing in life ever went bad for you beyond your own mistakes.

A normie used to mean neurotypical. To me it means just not being an outcast, being able to "fit" somewhere, follow the social expectations and invisible rules normally. If it comes natural to you, I think that means you are a normie.

I really don't see why anyone would list taking a guy's virginity on the Stacy side of that card. This thing was made by a man but that alone doesn't explain it, men usually understand that the popular girls don't dream of being some fumbling doofus' sex surrogate and therapist. And virgin men are usually more aware of that fact rather than less. It also can't be some idealized gf thing, since a lot of the sexual stuff on that side is stuff a virgin guy would find offputting, if not outright terrifying, and a nonvirgin guy wouldn't care if someone who'd done the other sexual things on that card had also slept with a male virgin. What gives?

>Not a total slut

My life is a lie. This is nothing like in my hentai )": At least I have 1 less thing to be jealous about.
Every time I see someone having something I don't have, I call them normies. It's just a buzzword nowadays.

Let's make a better version of that Stacy/Fembot bingo. I'll shoop it together if needed, but I need suggestions.

Here's some ideas:

>considered conventionally attractive
>has been asked for your number by a stranger
>has irl friends you met without the aid of the internet
>has had a romantic relationship
>likes to go to parties
>regularly invited to parties
>likes to go to clubs and bars

>scared of posting selfies
>visit imageboards aside from lolcow and crystal.cafe
>social media is mostly for lurking
>has a husbando/waifu
>has shipped herself with a fictional character
>has obscure interests
>bad at eye contact
>doesn't know how to take a compliment
>doesn't react to phone/doorbell if she doesn't expect someone

Anonymous 30908

Hmm suggestions…
>goes to gym 3+ times a week
>has been sent a dick pic on social media
>(keep the original square about insta followers)
>always get >100 likes on selfies
>can wear loose, frumpy clothing and still look hot
>confident she could make good money off of nudes
>almost always has perfect nails

>afraid of the gym (may work out at home)
>has orbited someone
>feels frumpy even when very well-dressed
>has weird fetishes
>bites nails

Virginity is pretty integral to being an outcast anon. Just because someone's a failed nornalfag who gets only 99 likes on their social media photos doesn't mean they feel welcome in the uncool kids club.

No, wait. I see what you mean. Yeah that shouldn't be there, but still going to gym only 2 times a week shouldn't exempt you from normaldom.

Green for yes, and yellow for partially. I deleted my instagram, I should have kept it private from the beginning. Lips and eyes, makeup is bad from your skin.

I'm sure there is a definition but assume the anger like "gtfo" is gatekeepinng/hazing because they are trying to push conformity and maintain control. What really confuses me is the way people depict life online. Like a caricature, regular life is different from my experience.

>What is the actual definition of a normie? I keep on seeing that term thrown around in a derogatory way.
A normie is anyone regardless of class, race, creed, and other forms of identification that indulge themselves and genuinely enjoys the mainstream "top of the surface" culture and ideals however it's completely subjective and loose. The reason it's thrown around in a derogatory fashion ONLY in the niche and alternative culture communities is due to elitism, superiority complex, and the microscopic feeling that the only way a community can truly function is if it's small and tightly knit. Normie is treated more as offensive accusation than an identity, and being accused of one is a test to see if someone fits in or is willing to go all the way to fit in.
>Is it meant to mean someone who isn't very integrated into internet culture?
That use to be the case like almost 20 years ago, but now the mainstream somewhat integrated into the "internet culture."
>Does it mean someone who isn't a NEET? Is it meant to mean someone who isn't into Japanese culture, or someone who was not abused as a child? for girls does it mean someone who's not a virgin?
You don't have to be a NEET to not be a normie. There're numerous "normies" that knows more about Japanese culture from mainstream to obscure that can put any anon from any chan to shame. Abused as a child is a huge indicator that someone might not end up being a normie, but there're way more things ranging from mental health to socioeconomics. Only /r9k/ and incel types includes virginity to the mix.

Perception is reality and prejudice rules all. All I know is that if you're very active and hangout in forum communities and chan/imageboards you're definitely not a normie but however if I were to meet any of you no matter what you're personal status is I wouldn't think for second that you are who you are.
