I'm writing my research paper for my English class on Yaoi. It's a controversial topic, and my professor didn't know what it meant *giggle* (she does now)

I need some QUALITY views on why Yaoi is wrong or bad.
If you like it, PLEASE do not just post you like it, i'm looking for arguments against Yaoi.

And please if you post "it's gay" i'm going to find you and beat you up! I KNOW IT'S GAY! DUH!

Mods: can you please allow this to stay open for just a little bit so that i can get my research information?
This is the only community that i don't have to explain what yaoi is before i survey them..

Please answer the following questions:


1. Do you / Have you watch(ed) or read Yaoi?

2. Do you enjoy it, why or why not?

3. If you did not enjoy it, please elaborate on exacty your reasons for disliking it, or even hating it.

4. Can you think of a relevant argument against Yaoi? Please share.

i dont have a problem with it specifically, but when i see a picture of a hot anime girl, it kind of ruins the excitement when i find out its a guy. so one argument could be: the girly looking guys can be deceiving to guys and then you can explain the source. (make sure you cite me as 'Juddy, Destroyer of Virginity')
tnx,

1. Do you / Have you watch(ed) or read Yaoi?

No, but saw quite few pics, due to rabid fangirls.

2. Do you enjoy it, why or why not?

The art itself is very spectacular but I don't really care for its subject matter, since it's not to my preference.

3. If you did not enjoy it, please elaborate on exacty your reasons for disliking it, or even hating it.

I just don't really like how they make guys in yaoi so feminine that I cannot tell the difference between guys and girls.

4. Can you think of a relevant argument against Yaoi? Please share.

The guys in yaoi should look bit manly, not so feminine but that's just me.

I'm strictly yuri guy but here ya go.

personally i dont like it, but i dont find nothing wrong with it. i dont watch it or read it. i would feel kind of funny seeing or reading that. i have nothing against yaoi, more power to them if they want guy on guy. i just think a couple should be a man and woman together.

1. Do you / Have you watch(ed) or read Yaoi?
I've heard about Yaoi and it's contents. BUT, I never dared watching it myself. I don't know what I'll do to myself if I ever did >.<

2. Do you enjoy it, why or why not?
Hell no! Why? I guess I just don't and when I look at myself, I have no reasons to enjoy it and it make sense. I'm straight, and I'm not sexually attracted to males. And never in my life I will have an unnatural sexual acts with a gender similar to myself. If I can't even do it, then how about ENJOYING it? I guess this topic is for... Eh... No offense and don't hate me.... but... eh... for girls? lol...

3. If you did not enjoy it, please elaborate on exacty your reasons for disliking it, or even hating it.
I don't hate it or love it, Yaoi is there, and there's nothing I can do about it. People like it, and some don't. But I'm not on either of those category, I'm on the neutral side. I just let this Yaoi do what it likes to it's viewers for all I care... But... If I do find my future son watch Yaoi... Oh man, say you're prayers -_-...

4. Can you think of a relevant argument against Yaoi? Please share.
Well, if many males or should I say straight males are unable to get themselves entertain with Yaoi... Would they have the same opinions on Yuri? Hahaha... I haven't watched Yuri, only heard about it. But ah well. I guess I don't really qualified in this part.

1. Do you / Have you watch(ed) or read Yaoi?
Only shounen-ai though (Gravitation to be specific, and some animes that have bits of it in there)

2. Do you enjoy it, why or why not?
I enjoy shounen-ai because I love any good romance story =D! I wouldn't enjoy full on yaoi though because I view it the same way I view hentai or yuri. It puts more emphasis on sex than story.

3. If you did not enjoy it, please elaborate on exacty your reasons for disliking it, or even hating it.
(see above)

4. Can you think of a relevant argument against Yaoi? Please share.
The only one I can think of, is the same kind of arguments they have against pornography and such. It's objectifying people and undermining the act of sex? I don't know if that's something I personally believe, but it sounds like it might be used as an argument.

EDIT: I'm leaving this open just to help out Duster, after awhile I'll close it because it IS technically a duplicate. People will be more likely to see this though if it's a thread by itself, plus, it's more organized for when she goes to write whatever paper she needs to haha.

Yaoi, to me is much better. I mean for example the character details, the expressions, the movements, the emotions are superbly perfect. Not to mention the blushing...Also I have no problem with people being gay, bi, striate, or lesbian. I mean were all different, aren't we? No two people are the same. So why should this be any different? You tell me.

thank you doomy,

I didn't scroll through the other yaoi threads because i dont' need screaming fan girls saying " ZOMG i LOVE YAOI! Sasuke and whoever" and the anti parts didn't go into enough detail for my paper.

This is a college level paper, and it's my Mid term grade.

This community is the best community to ask these questions to, since they already understand what yaoi is, and can give intelligent responses to my questions.

I fully expected the mods to want to close this, but i just need to gather a bit of info for my paper and this was the best way to do it.

I appreciate all the of the feedback and responses to this, and the helpful information is WONDERFUL thank you guys SOOOO much!

I'll Put a post in here when i get enough info and report it so whoever's modding can close it.

Thanks Doomy!
*hugs*

1. Do you / Have you watch(ed) or read Yaoi?

Ummm I've seen Ouran High School Host Club... I dunno what that count as.

2. Do you enjoy it, why or why not?

No cause Male male kissing is big no no unless its a joke. Female Female kissing is also meh... but I accept it alot more =D

3. If you did not enjoy it, please elaborate on exacty your reasons for disliking it, or even hating it.

^ I said up there. I frankly don't like to see Homosexual displays of affection even though I have nothing against gay people.

4. Can you think of a relevant argument against Yaoi? Please share.

No. Its a fantasy, let people enjoy their fantasies...as long as it doesn't bother me.

1. Do you / Have you watch(ed) or read Yaoi?
Yeah, caught a glimpse of it.. Closed the window immediately. =x

2. Do you enjoy it, why or why not?
No~, as a guy.. it feels awkward to see 2 people of my gender doing that.

3. If you did not enjoy it, please elaborate on exacty your reasons for disliking it, or even hating it.
Im a guy, im sure most guys dont watch Yaoi, doesnt mean they DO watch yuri, so, i think im just not attracted by this animes, i guess.

4. Can you think of a relevant argument against Yaoi? Please share.
In Yaoi, why is one of the party, has to look feminine? is Yaoi targeted @ Bi/Gay Audiences too?

~Cheers.
