Via Tumblr Yaoi Fight, here are some signs that your child might be under the influence of the substance commonly known as "The Animes":

‚ÄĘmaking an account on deviantART.com - While it appears innocent, this website is actually a black market for different types of "The Animes." It contains the highest concentration of animes abusers worldwide.

‚ÄĘchanging their typing habits - If your Honors student starts typing sentences that substitute "teh" for "the" or uses asterisks for actions (i.e., *noms on you XD*) or starts adding -chan to the end of names, "The Animes" have most likely gotten to a near-irreversible state that requires years of therapy.

So talk to your kids, before it's too late.
