    I saw this novel title while scrolling: I Am Not a Sis-Con! ~ All the People Around Me Call Me One, but Isn’t It Just Because My Sister Is Too Cute? ~

    It's weird, because isn't he basically saying: I am not a sis-con. Because if my sister was ugly, I wouldn't be a sis-con, thus I am not a REAL sis-con!

    There are many novel characters who are sis-con and constantly praise their sister's beauty. But how do they know they are sis-con? All their sisters are pretty, they don't have proof they really are sis-con!

    It doesn't matter if his sister is ugly or not because every thing will be cute to him because he is a sis-con contrary to what he thinks that he isn't is probably how the story goes.

    That's like saying, "I wouldn't like apples if they weren't sweet". But they are, so you do like apples. There's no "if".

    That means you only like certain sorts of apples, just like he only likes cute little sisters
    In both cases, unsweet apples and uncute sisters exist. It's not like he said he doesn't like insects, because he only likes insects with 6 legs.

    He isn't saying he likes his sister because she is cute. The one of the big hallmarks of a sis-con is that usually no matter what they do or look like to the sis-con they are always cute.

    So he finds his sister cute because he is a sis-con?

    I feel like the inherent cuteness is simply enhanced since he is a sis-con.

    Yes but that is not saying she can't be cute it is a rose tinted glass view and an over use of praise such as cute or beautiful depending on if they are older or younger that likely to get you classified as a sis-con

    If all of the types of cons could be erased from this world it would be quite pleasing.

    It might not even be that he is a sis-con it might just be that his sister is unbelievablely cute and he has said it a few to many times so he has been labeled as a sis-con

    That's.......not how it works? This is a different case. Let's say we're talking about a straight woman. It would be right to say that she likes men, but it's not like she likes all men, only the ones she dates....

    Tsk, such an entry level sis-con. A real sus-con *cough* I mean sis-con transcends the purely visual into the metaphorical realm where all sisters are cute. To say that only your sis is cute while all the rest of ours are not is an insult to all sis-cons in the world. Repent on your knees or we'll retaliate by telling your sister that you have a boyfriend. :whistle:

    The best sis-cons are ones who are sisters themselves, just like the best mother-cons are the daughters.

    The easiest way to tell if someone is a ___-con is if they're upset by the idea of that person being in a relationship with someone else. In the case of having multiple "targets", like a siscon with two sisters, that person wouldn't mind them being in a relationship with each other though.

    Anyway, that title's supposed to mean "I'd feel the same way about her even if she wasn't my sister so I'm not a sis-con" but it's still really dumb and I've never given the story a look inside.
