A General Survey on Yaoi Fans
Posted 3/4/08
Hi everyone. My friend raistlin_moeh is doing a term paper on yaoi fans and we would really appreciate it if y'all could help us out. If you're not a fan or hate yaoi, then this thread is not for you. At any rate, we 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:
*19
*Female
*Canada
*I’m a student
*I’m dating
*2 and half years
*I draw , but I’m not good at it (for some reason I can only draw girls and animals)
*I became a fan when I watched my first shounen-ai, Gravitation. Then I watched another one then another and so I become addicted to it.
*I like both, but I rather watch hardcore yaoi
*I’m not ashamed of it, I recommend it to all of my friends
*It made me more open to same-sex relationships. Before I would say, “Do whatever you want, but don’t do it in front of me,” now however, I’m more like “Wait, wait, let me get something and please don’t mind me, I’ll just watch.” *winks*

Thank you so much for helping us out!!

This type of information goes in profiles under "about me." + you double posted.

This thread is unnecessary. Go to a yaoi group and make a thread there, or read one of their member information/introduction threads.

~reported

However, since I am also a yaoi fan I'll be a good sport.

your age: 17
sex: Female
location: Colorado, USA
are you working? student? both?: Both, student at Mesa State College and have a part time job
married/single/in a relationship?: In a relationship
how many years you've been a fan: Less than 1
do you write or draw yaoi-themed stuff: No
why did you become a fan or what made you like it: A friend got me into it, she made me watch some really awesome shows that hooked me.
do you like shounen-ai only or just yaoi or both: Both, the difference isn't quite clear to me
are you ashamed of it/proud of it/don't care if other people know it: Don't give a shit if other ppl know it - it's none of their business
and did it make you more open to real homosexual relationships/against it/didn't affect your opinion to begin with: It didn't affect my opinion, I've always supported gay rights.

19
Female
All over
Student
In a relationship
4-5 years?
I write yaoi fics and photoshop yaoi pics occasionally :P
I had a friend who was hard-core into it and she rubbed off on me. I'm more into real-life yaoi (would that just be called gay porn? lmfao) rather than anime, though, but it's all good. I think it's cute :3 Two hot guys and no undeserving female to get in the way? come on.
I'll take either/or shounen-ai/yaoi, all the same to me.
I don't care if people know I like it. I wear my Coat West shirt for all to see ^_^
Before I didn't care at all one way or the other about gay relationships, but now I see them as couples in love too and think they deserve the same level of respect

location: Northern Illinois
are you working? student? both?: Both, Working full time, going to college full time.

how many years you've been a fan, Just recently, i find it interesting.
do you write or draw yaoi-themed stuff, no
why did you become a fan or what made you like it, Not entirely sure, i enjoy the attractive male art. however, the personalities of the chars is what keeps me comming back.
do you like shounen-ai only or just yaoi or both, Both (i'm so glad that there's someone who knows there's a difference!)
are you ashamed of it/proud of it/don't care if other people know it, I don't care if people know i like yaoi. i'm not making them look at it. so why should it matter what i look at?
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).
I was already half homosexual, i've been around homosexuals for a very long time (lol this question sounds about like my thesis statement for my reserach paper on yaoi for college english last semester!)
