i have equal dislike for both. but ppl end up liking yuri more because we're more used to it, especially in North American culture. We see it portrayed more often in commercials and movies (ie. American Pie movies). We're more "trained" to think its hott while guy on guy is more like a joke to people.

Unless the girls who are complaining of criticism of yaoi are actually trying to force it on guys, theres no reason why guys should go out of their way to criticise it suddenly and out of the blue. It's like haters of a certain anime (ahem) who suddenly blurt out that it sucks in the middle of an unrelated thread just to see if it provokes a response. But then again, the creation of a thread like this is just asking for trouble, in my humble one.

I guess I'm living on the other side of North American culture because yaoi is getting as much attention. Though it might not be positive, it is still something that's being known... like Brokeback Mountain, XD and even the gay marriage debate (though it implies both gender, we see in the media many gay men or so it's displayed).

And I guess I like trouble.

It's called masculine pride. Plus, this isn't an ED discussion. I don't even know if this thread should be allowed to remain open, since you can easily discuss this in any of the existing Yaoi/Yuri forums... I'll leave it to the other mods, since I'm on a limited connection at the moment. Till then, I'll just move this thread.

first time replying to a mod

i mean seriously everybody is always saying yaoi is sick and wrong but yuri is okay i dont get it i mean why is yaoi so wrong yaoi and yuri are basically the same thing anyway. so why yaoi wrong?


for those of you who dont know yuri=femalelXfemale yaoi=maleXmale


I'm not sure what you mean. I always experienced it as being the other way around, with yaoi being accepted and yuri being attacked.

Well from what I've noticed girls are usually the ones to complain about yuri and guys usually complain about yaoi.
Buuut most girls don't usually dislike yuri all that much, and even if they do, girls are less likely to freak out about it.
Whereas guys will spaz and be all like OMG YAOI GROSS.
Then again, it's also a matter of maturity I suppose, since if you aren't like 13, you don't feel the need to go around spamming 'YAOI IS GAY EW SICK' no matter what gender you are or whether you like/dislike it.
I personally like both, BUT that's just me.

If you're going to make statements like that, you need to support them with evidence. Not of course that I, being a guy, disagree with you, but I guarantee that you can't find any facts to back up this statement.

God is opinion. And every human has the right to state theirs.


Well, your opinion is not only wrong but offensive. Its a baseless opinion that is trying to say that yaoi is wrong.

All I see is how girls kissing is hot and how its hot and yaois not. Just because you don't think so doesnt mean it isn't.

It's instinct.


I see! I never thought about it that way!

becasue guys can like yuri so yoai is out but then girls say they like both which makes it weird
so if u add them up its like 50/50 of girls for yaoi and yuri but 100% of guys for yuri
so its like 75% dislike yaoi and 25% like it
either way both are stupid becasue they usually pare idiocy together and make no sense
