Did the waifu thing start as a joke that transformed in to a sort of serious culture or was it serious abd got mixed up later? How many of you actually have waifus in the serious, dedicated way and how many are just goofing around or doing it ironically?
>>
The waifu thing started out serious but now has become nothing but a joke to 95% of /a/
>>
It started as a joke, became serious, and is now a joke again.

If you just take the microcosm of /a/ I'd say it started off as a self-depreciating joke for mere fun. The kind of joke you do, which hides a slight part of truth before slowly expanding because of the visibility the joke gave it.

I'm not a lesbian. I mean it's ok if I have a waifu, because that's just pretend, even if I do occasionally have dreams about us cuddling and fingering each other, but having an actual girlfriend?

The phenomenon existed even before we had a name for it. People who claim that "it was a joke" don't understand that part of it. Giving it a name did not make people get waifus, it just gave all of the people who already had one something to rally around.

Of course, nowadays, most people DO use it as a joke, which is a shame.

Is it really wrong to make it a self aware joke about crushing on a fictional character?

It is a westernization of a a concept that actually exists among Japanese otaku.

Some people think its a joke. Some people take it seriously. Just like some people take religion seriously and others see it as a joke.

The only certain joke or meme you can take from it is the use of the word "waifu" itself.

It's absolutely serious. I choose a waifu from every show that I watch, and I love them all.
