yes, because i would want to let them understand that loving someone of the same gender is not wrong and is only a part
of life!!!!!!!!!

No, I'd like him/her not to get into such things because me, I'd rather have my child watch normal romances than yaoi/yuri. If the child becomes interested in yaoi/yuri on his/her own than I guess I'd let em be..

Yes... because of the research i've done, it seems that yaoi actually began with women empowerment in the culture. The fact that a man was as vulnerable for a woman, depicted in that way, kind of gave women the chance to live through the characters and give them the idea that women can have the same ideals as men... or thats what i've read at least.

My, my, such a bold and miraculous question to ask and post, Lady Lena, I am very much impressed I am to see such a question. Truly wonderful. Well then, I shall not insult you by remarking to you and not giving you an answer then, Lady Lena. Truthfully, I have always found that anime such as yuri (I shall admit now that I was never favored to yaoi) and yaoi have served as the dramatic and romatic side of the opposite sex of love. It gives off a plesant feeling of those who always feel insecure and scared, but always over comed with love and what matters in the feeling of your heart. I would alow, if I ever have childern to learn what they should on their own, but allow a slight bet of yuri and yaoi as a stand by guide to the feelign part, so that no judgment can be passed on and so an understanding can be created. Well asked, Lady Lena. -Sir. Nicodemus Pendracul

Oh, not bad, so someone has used their mind and knowledge of history to relate to the modern day age, truly wonderful. But then, I wonder, have you but ever learned the philosphy within the past history that relates to modern day hentai? The way each character is made for the other and the very change of position and style? If this is too far in conversation and far more then one needs to hear, then I aplogise to you. -Sir.

Well... I wouldn't be against it. By all means, if my child was to come across such shows, I would allow them to freely watch them as they please. But I wouldn't go out of my way to show it to them. Especially if it is explicit. And there is a difference between feeling a certain way and viewing something inappropriate. If they wish to watch a show about two people of the same gender having a romance, I would be more then happy to support them though.

No its quite alright... I haven't done too much research on that, but I've noticed how each character balances the other one in one way or another. Through physical means or emotional. The characters also look quite similar.

Can't say I've watched much hentai though, and have done almost no research, so I cannot use anything to back it up...

Well off to the bank ^_^ have fun everybody, i'll check out the thread later to see where it stands

I wouldn't introduce them to it I would just make them find out on their own, well unless they ask me about it and are at least the right age...anyways from people at school or the internet they would most likely find out about it anyways....

You bitches have GOT to understand yaoi is PORN, and Shounen-ai is the not porn.

I would introduce my children to neither, because I don't need to make them watch a show filled with crappy gay drama to tell them "Hey! Homosexuality is alright!" I also don't want to give them the misconception that straight guys all of the suddenly become gay because a gay guy has fallen for him. I'll just raise my children right instead of letting a show teach them these kinds of lessons.
