From Encyclopedia Dramatica
A manchild (see also basement dweller) is an adult male who refuses to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and chooses instead to live as if they were a young child, in other words you. It is also a known fact that 99.99% of manchildren are furries, and have hard-ons for Sonic the Hedgehog and colorful cartoon ponies. Naturally, this means that they are gigantic faggots, and invariably furfags.
This is always the result of a "serious mental handicap". As in, they are too fucking lazy to get a job.
It is interesting to note that manchildren, as their name suggest, are almost always male and that there is no such thing as a 'womanchild'. This is likely because the qualities that make manchildren so pathetic (childishness, naïveté, sexual inexperience) are generally considered positive, attractive qualities in women by men and because society considers it acceptable that women are allowed to be parasites that do nothing but laze around at home for the rest of their lives.
More and more, children are becoming a product of gross societal negligence, piss poor parenting practices, backwards educational requirements inferior gene pools and overzealous marketing endeavors. Largely stemming from "Generation Barney", children of the 90s were taught early on that failure was perfectly acceptable. Starting with the "No Child Left Behind" stupidity, kids were suddenly being brought down to the level of the "lowest common denominator" of the classroom, given A+'s for having an "A"ttitude that was "+" positive, it suddenly became more crucial to make kids as happy as possible and with as little disappointment than it was to actually educate them in any meaningful manner.
Kids were taught that it is "okay" to be a basement dwelling welfare leach so long as they were happy and had a good attitude about it. They were taught that it was "okay" to wet the bed past the age of 5, giving an increase of demand on baby diapers that were put on the market last thursday that would have been completely laughable in decades past. Fast food happy meals were likewise super sized, not because kids were actually eating more, but simply because they kept on ordering the baby meals well on into their tweens and teens.
Our society has since degenerated into a form of super acceptance, to the point where failure itself is something to be celebrated and standards of acceptable behavior have downgraded to a near infantile level. Creative new medical conditions and disorders have likewise arisen, allowing parents to raise "unique" little diseases rather than real children. Mommy's little malady, daddy's little disorder, it has become literally in vogue to have a "special" child with a "special" problem, upon which any failures or generally bad behavior can be labeled with a convenient, all encompassing excuse.
The subject in question may exhibit many of these classic symptoms:
- Collecting metric tons of nostalgic toys.
- Choosing to watch cartoons and television shows from their childhood at a time when people of their age should be watching more challenging, intelligent adult programming.
- Reading comic books or tie-in novelizations of popular movie franchises aimed at children as opposed to high literature.
- Inability or refusal to get a job.
- Asperger's syndrome.
- Not having any friends that aren't on the Internet.
- Living at home despite being well into their thirties.
- Erectile Dysfunction.
- Hating everything made after the 1990s.
- Bruised penis head from having the toilet seat fall on it while they pee.

Generally there are two types of manchildren, the emotionally unstable drama whore type and the flippant, fun loving, lazy bastard type. The former make for excellent trolling due to the fact that they'll blow up over the slightest little thing, often have great difficulty controlling their emotions and are generally prone to acting out with little inhibition; most often due to lack of recognizing the potential consequences and outcomes of social situations.
More often than not they tend to float over in the aspie end of the spectrum, while the later category tend to be apathetic, carefree neurotypicals who generally don't take anything seriously...at all. Trolling or flaming that type is not recommended, they'll simply laugh it off, poke fun at you for not acting like them and due to their complete inability to take anything seriously (least of all themselves), any attempted attack or troll will fail before it has even begun.
