I like some shojo and I'm a dude
could be because of the good storytelling.

And I agree with sabbacc108 about the straight-up "shounen" or "action" series being made right now.

but I still watch MINDLESS SHONEN

My cousin likes shoujo...because of me!
And yeah...shounen has too much action which is something I don't really like, but I like some...Shoujo's pretty good...if it's not too girly or anything....

Well, one of the things that really excited me about anime (when I was first introduced to it) was how well the characters were written. If you trace the history of manga (and anime), it was shoujo that originally introduced the concept of a character-driven storyline to manga. Original shounen comics were basically mindless violence with little or no plot. Over time, bits of the characteriziation from shoujo began to creep into shounen comics, and people bought more of them. What's this? people actually liked having well-written characters with understandable motivation? Who knew! The state of manga and anime today can basically be traced to shounen writers reading shoujo (and liking it!).

That's how someone could like shoujo.

(and I don't see why girls wouldn't be allowed to post here. Although I did ask how many guys like shoujo, I am welcome for opinions on the subject by anyone. I'm not a total asshole.)

p.s. for anyone wondering how I know this stuff, you should read Dreamland Japan, a damn fine book. Look for it at your local library!

Well i can say that as long as the anime/manga is good, ill definetly like it.
Kare Kano - Damn fine anime.
Aizitsure (or however that was written) baby - Damn Kawaii anime.
Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles - probably the most well known shojo to date, rivaling Kare Kano as the standard, sorta like what Love Hina did to Tenchi Muyo.

There is nothing wrong with shoujo. In fact, it was what inspired me to draw.

I don't mind shoujo I catch myself watching that more than shounen, though it sort of depends on my mood. I just don't like alot of the shounen character development it has to be some of the most predictable character development in all of anime.

Shojo rules, I also like shonen, but shojo usually has better plots and character development. shonens that are all action are contrived and predictable and can get boring, like "oh, we just defeated the strongest enemy we have ever faced, now lets take up a couple of episodes for filler before another enemy that is twice as strong as the one before appears suddenly for some reason and we must fight him now" (Dragonball Z comes to mind)
