Hello. I'm doing a term paper on yaoi fans and such so I'd really appreciate it if y'all could help me out. If you're not a fan or hate yaoi, then this thread is not for you. At any rate, I would like to know:
your age
sex
location
are you working? student? both?
married/single/in a relationship?
how many years you've been a fan,
do you write or draw yaoi-themed stuff,
why did you become a fan or what made you like it,
do you like shounen-ai only or just yaoi or both,
are you ashamed of it/proud of it/don't care if other people know it,
and did it make you more open to real homosexual relationships/against it/didn't affect your opinion to begin with. (you don't have to give your real name).

Mine is like this:

*22
*female
*usa
*2 years
*used to write
*i became a fan because of the story lines where shoujo mangas never dare tread, the feeling of forbidden love somehow made it feel more intense and the eye candy ^_^
*like both
*not ashamed of it but am a bit nervous if my parents will find out
*it made me more understanding of homosexual relationships (men or women)

Thanks in advance to anyone willing to help me

I checked and didn't find any thread like this so... anyway, to moderators pls feel free to delete if this is duplicate or not allowed. peace.

your age: 17

sex: female

location: California

how many years you've been a fan: 5 years

do you write or draw yaoi-themed stuff: yes

why did you become a fan or what made you like it: I watch shounen anime more than shojou, generally because the guy characters are developed better. Better characters = better relationships. It has to be realistic for me, not just any two hot guys, but I really like the depth these relationships can go. They're not limited by normal conventions.

do you like shounen-ai only or just yaoi or both: Both, depending on the situation. Whichever suits the couple best, although I tend to like yaoi better. ^_^;;

are you ashamed of it/proud of it/don't care if other people know it: Don't Care/Proud of it. I don't see any real difference between these relationships and heterosexual ones, so if people don't like it, they tend to be either ignorant or bigoted.

and did it make you more open to real homosexual relationships/against it/didn't affect your opinion to begin with: No effect, I was open to it in the first place, although it wierds my mum out that I write it, so I don't show it to her.

how many years? >3 years
do you write or draw yaoi-themed stuff? >sometimes,, but mostly shonen ai, not yaoi

I rather like shonen ai, because it usually has nice, romantic and touchy meanings of the story..

did it make you more open? >Hmm..I think...Err, I think of course...
