As long as no one is getting hurt, I see no reason to be ashamed of your hobbies. Heck, even then, sometimes it's okay. People get hurt skydiving, but they are LIVING their life to its fullest. I guess just do not hurt someone else or do anything illegal. xD We like what we like, and if it makes you happy, go for it.

All animals deserve respect, not just the cute and pretty ones.
Without "bugs", we would lose about 1/3 of our food, be nose high in decay, and entire ecosystems (including everything that supports the popular animals!) would collapse.

I have a few 'hobbies' if you could call them that. Obviously fish-keeping which I don't say much about at school, because people look at you like you've gone nuts. I randomly have about a million HorseLand, HorseIsle and Adventure Quest accounts which I play on whim. I collect Breyers and also books. I love reading! I play LOADS of skyrim, because it's just the bestest game ever and also play Warcraft!

I enjoy basket weaving, hobby farming, and home canning. I think I should have lived back in the pioneer days. haha

Bounce, that is awesome! I have only ever woven one basket, but I used to do baking and canning every year for 4-H Spring Show and the County Fair.

I've been a My Little Pony collector for over a decade. At this point everyone knows about it. Some people don't get it, some people think it's awesome, and I am no longer embarrassed. Right now they're all in a closet (no space to display thanks to the bettas haha). I have about 500 of them.

I don't really have another hobby I guess but I believe in social justice and volunteer a lot with disadvantaged youth and women. I studied sociology of law, crime and deviance in college and I've always been interested in juvenile justice issues.

Ok, so this isn't really a hobby. It is a collector's type of thing.

I have a "library" of books, and I collect figurines and stuff like that and stuffed animals.
