It's a matter of who you're attracted to I guess, the fact that most men don't like the idea of two guys together and that most girls don't like two girls together is the other side of the same issue. If you're not attracted to guys then it makes sense that you wouldn't like yaoi and likewise the otherside of the coin with females.

Personally, I don't think it's a matter of being 'against' something, I think that makes a person seem...somewhat immature to me I guess. I'm not trying to insult you or anything but it's better to say that you don't prefer something rather than say you're against it as if you're going to persecute every person who is into it. It's just a pet peeve of mine, since I know way too many people who are like that, nothing to you personally.


i guess your right..



you've got some reasoning abilities...

Wow. A reasonable human being on Crunchyroll. I am deeply impressed.

No more replies are needed in this thread. That one has all the answers you'll ever need.

I still can't stand it..



Pfft, malamang.,
you're a guy. Of course you'll hate to see 2 guys go at it.



*cough* I watch Yuri because of the bizarre complex about the anime.
Hyeah it's exotic, but what about it? It's what gets me interested in some anime.

People hate it just because they dont like or approve of it. It is the only reason for people to hate something.

I agree with you on this point.. I guess the basis of the question comes from the fact that psychologists and modern science tells us that men are "visual" creatures by nature and respond to visual stimulus while women on the other hand are "emotional" beings, thus responding to a more profound and deeper stimulus. In that aspect I can understand why women would respond to Yaoi since its the emotional attachment that they look for more then the visual aspect like men do in Yuri...

Edit: in that aspect it is also easy to undestand the opposite side of the coin. Why men hate Yaoi (well most anyways) is because there is no visual stimulus, and the same can be said for women about Yuri since they might feel that there isn't any emotional aspect to the story..


I agree with you both. I can't say why I like it either. I've seen both sides of the story, I've seen anime directed towards a male audience and I've seen Yaoi. I prefer the story in Yaoi and I'm not particularly fond of the other types myself.

I don't watch Yuri and especially Yaoi. The only Yaoi that I watched is Kyo Kara Maoh; I got duped into watching it after being given a DVD that is labeled Demon Eyes Kyo. I felt sick after a few episodes so I dump it. I've never watched any Yuri yet and I don't plan to.

Girls like Yaoi, Reverse Harem, and Yaoi Hentai(Not all girls, I've just heard some here on the forums).
Boys like Harem, Ecchi, Yuri(I'm not sure because I don't like it) and sometimes Hentai(Not me) <_<; .
I think us boys hating yaoi is natural; I would find it weird if some boys like Yaoi because it is gay.
As for the girls, Vice Versa

To sum it up, Viewers tend to like an anime character of the opposite sex; Or at least that goes for boys.
This wouldn't apply to you if you are a homo/Bi


you got a point..

there's something you can't understand in the opposite sex...

Some guys watch it because of their interest in the anime, NOT in the way two guys love each other.
Also, to some yaoi plot, it's really interesting.
If the plot is good, then I'll watch it.

It's simple. Girls like Yaoi & Guys like Yuri.
I liked Yuri animes like Kashimashi & Strawberry Panic.
I don't think there's anything funny with girls watching yaoi although I dislike it.

P.S. I watch Moonlight Lady too =x

I don't know why I like it.
There's just something about it.
I'm not sure what.
It's so hot, and you can really feel the emotion in it and all that.
Not really into yuri though, I don't mind watching it. I'll watch it if it's in a good anime.
I can't stand brotherXsister stuff though. (Is there a name for that?)
The brother and sister in Shakugan no Shana when they make out make me shudder like hell...

large majority of yaoi fans are girls because such animes' targeted audiences are female. such animes are often romantic, the males are very pretty, sometimes unrealistic and these factors appeal to females. that is why i love it so much - i think i am obsessed sometimes. and i love reading the fanfictions that depict BL between my favourite anime characters.

ANYWAY, Yaoi anime is still different from live action. i tried watching a gay movie once - btw, its not pornography and i kinda freaked out when i saw two guys wearing only socks and underwear rolling in bed and frenchkissing. i was actually feeling nausous i didn't make it pass 2 minutes into the bed scene. i have watched tonnes of yaoi - hard and soft so i stress, it is still VERY, VERY, VERY different from watching two real males from the human species making out.

i don't think i am homophobic though. i can still accept two guys kissing and displaying light PDA. but a heterosexual couple displaying intense PDA will make me really uncomfortable too! so quit dissing yaoi anime because its different.

p/s: PDA - public display of affection
