I know this has been discussed here before, I looked on LJseek and couldnt find it though. How does one refer to lolita, when trying to tell someone who doesnt know what is about it? I cant say "I like Lolita", because then people will think I'm a pedophile. I dont want to say "I like gothic lolita" either, cause then I feel like I'm giving the impression that I only like gothic style(actually, gothic is my least favorite) or I could be some creepy fetish person. Same thing can go for referring to it by any other style (Classic, Sweet). Someone can get the wrong idea and think I'm a pervert... Is there anyway I can avoid misconceptions?
