So I been seeing some pretty nasty comments about the gay anime that's been coming out recently near Gay Pride Day (April 25, respecting a 15 year old student who was killed because of his sexuality). I already said it twice but please, just grow up already. The world is not full of straight people and you just have to accept that. Besides, just because it's a gay anime doesn't mean it's not a good one. So next time you see a gay anime, just enjoy it without leaving behind a nasty comment.

Take this from a straight girl. [:

I've edited your post a little for better discussion.

I think there is another issue here: Bashing yaoi/shonen-ai/shojo-ai/yuri for the express reason that it is homosexual is in poor taste. It's like bashing an action anime for simply being an action anime. If you hate the genre, then there is no reason to even watch it, because it's made for a different audience.. Now if you do watch it because you like action animes, and find that it sucks as an action anime, then it's ok to criticize it. :\ once again, it boils down to bias.

It's true that people shouldn't be bashing yaoi/shounen ai animes simply because of their genre, if you don't like it don't watch it. There are some instances on the other hand where making comments on it is entirely appropriate. For example, I personally don't care for yaoi at all and do my best to avoid it. Therefore when I found out that Monochrome Factor, which in its manga form is not a shounen ai, was turned into a shounen ai for the anime I was thoroughly disappointed and therefore left negative feedback.

Don't get me wrong, i'm not a homophobe. My roommate is gay after all.

I find it kinda weird...how people always bash yaoi/gay series...but you never see any lesbian/yuri series getting bashed...............and that mostly the people who bash the series are male.....is it me or is there some issue with them not being able to keep their thoughts to themselves and not bash things? Just wondering.

Lots of people today are swept up by mob mentality, where the mob dictates what norms there are, such as the mostly anti-gay stance, racial superiority stuff and the like (blamable on organized religion, past cultures, etc.) and they enforce their beliefs fanatically (and rather stupidly). This usually leads to a lot of (stupid) action before any thought, i.e. the bashing.

About the men against gay men/yaoi but not against lesbian/yuri thing... You can blame organized religion.
