ITT anime-related semantics

If you RAGE any time someone uses the phrase "Japanese cartoon" or "American anime" and angrily try to correct the person by pointing out that anime and cartoons are two different things, then you are a massive newfaggot. The fact of the matter is that the word "anime" is the general term used by the Japanese to refer to all animation, making "American anime" a perfectly acceptable term. Basically, "anime" is the Japanese equivalent word for "cartoon". In addition, the word anime is actually borrowed from a similar French word.
