Yaoi/Yuri is wrong as is homosexuality. Any yaoi/yuri pairings are unwelcome to me. Anyone supporting them clearly should have their head checked. Jake, your remark offended me.


Offended you?
And you're not offending others? I know this is an Anti Yaoi/Yuri thread... but seriosly, if you're going to flame others, be prepared to be flamed yourself.
Everyone is entitiled to their own opinion... so that is YOUR opinion, don't try to force it on to others with all you 'promoting homosexuality' crap. I don't see the problem with homosexuality... it's love between two humans, two people... what is so wrong?

As for Yuri and Yaoi... I personally don't watch them... but it's a genre, like Shoujo and Shonen, Josei, horror, romance... whatever. What's to stop others liking what they like?




Well said.



Couldn't have said it better myself

Okay, let me get this straight, you think that people choose to be gay, bi, lesbian or transexual? Who would pick that life? They have(except bisexuals) a smaller pool of potential mates, and get a lot of discrimination and outright hatred. Its like if you were in the 50s saying you hate people who choose to be black. Who would choose that? Who would choose to have people irrationally hate them and live in a world where things are harder for them.

You can say they could still marry a person of the opposite sex and try to be normal, but why don't you try to be gay, why don't you try to go out and date a man and sleep with a man and live with a man despite the fact that it is not your natural inclination to do so? Did you make a conscious choice to find women attractive? I know I have never made a specific mental choice that today I was going to be attracted to the very things that turn me on.

Anyway, why should christian morals come into anime? Anime is made in a nation where less than 1% of the population is christian, its like saying simpsons should adopt a shinto or confuscionist outlook because some people in japan might find it contrary to their beliefs and ideology. Furthermore, this is all fan work, you can dislike it, you can hate it, but no one is forcing you to look at it and watch it. No one is forcing you to interact with the fans, it is all voluntary.

really its all based on beliefs.
whether you like it or not, its nothing to become argumentative over.
to tell you the truth, i was Christan, but as i grew older. i began watching anime and faster then i knew i was watching a yuri anime, i felt so guilty about it, so i talked about it to my mother and things seemed to work out. you have to bend the rules sometimes. Yuri and Yaoi are the best forms of love in my books and thats my option. =\ and those that hate yaoi and yuri think like this, Your crushing someone right now, with your hate. lovely way to think about it.

Mind your own business.

I don't care about those gay or lesbian people. You shouldn't either because its "NONE" of your business.

That's the main point, just live your life don't butt into other people's life.

it is extremely hateful to say that there is some sort of gay agenda and how could anyone take offense to same-sex pairings. promoting homosexuality? give me a break. i hope people love who they love and read what they want.

God loves fags.

and if you're such a conservative christian you really shouldn't look at ANY illicit reading material anyway., so yaoi and yuri wouldn't really be of your concern.
i think that characters who have antagonistic relationships make good pairings, doesn't it seem more plausible that the person you love drives you crazier than anyone else?
so basically since i can't stand yu gi oh, have no problems with same-sex pairings, and like when two characters who appear not to get along end up together, this is the antithesis to the original post
Reread the book of Acts dude

its love the sinner not the sin, you're being so negative.
despise? how does it even effect you? you mean you're worried about their soul? because it doesn't sound like. it sounds more like prejudice . . .
also did you notice that its usually females who like yaoi and males who like yuri?
i guess in terms of yaoi and yuri the whole forbidden love aspect is one of the aspects that makes it compelling. in contemporary society it is difficult for there to be a Capulet X Montague component.
Most Yuri and Yaoi are not worth the paper their printed on though . . .

It's fine to hold that view yourself, but don't bash other people for their opinions.

Ok, that having been said, there is actually a term for when people pair up same sex characters who are arch enemies. Apparently, in a lot of shows where the hero and the villain spend an enormous amount of time trying to get rid of each other, the relationship can be seen as an obsessive infatuation. Sometimes authors actually integrate this into their story lines (a little bit). But there's a website that explains it much better:
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FoeYay

And I also hate it when fans pair up people who aren't meant to be together. =_= I have no problem with homosexuality, but if a character is supposed to be straight, then please keep them that way.

Wait! WAIT WAIT! No one said the character MUST be straight. The authors doesn't state "THIS CHARACTER IS STRAIGHT SO PLEASE DO NOT MAKE THEM GAY!" in their manga/anime. I am sure lots of author hints homosexuality to get it more popular. But hey... Not trying to offend you just my opinion ;p



I am still sure reading yuri/yaoi, is like a person watching porn on porn sites. No difference except they have different gender (:

Haha i love that.

and besides,

Christianity doesn't see people to be gay as sinners (or whatever), they even agree that it is within their nature (their DNA) they just think if two men or girls go at it then its wrong, even then i don't care because i like yaoi and there is nothing wrong with it. I think people who can't accept people based on religious views are kind of annoying and stupid, its personal preference and oh yes one more thing...

Have you read every Christian belief? Do you believe them all? Because if you did you wouldn't even be on this site, you'd be doing as the bible says, so unless you follow the thing to the letter, don't use it as an excuse to dislike Yaoi and Yuri pairings.

Also, lighten up ^^ Its nothing to cause a fuss over (sorry if i have offended anyone in this post but these are MY beliefs so it doesn't matter, i wont get into an argument with anyone over them so don't try ^^

It's alright if the author insinuates that there might be something going on, but if there ISN'T AT ALL then the poor characters should be left alone. And people might just imagine that there's something going on, when the author really didn't mean anything

For me, Its totally unacceptable if one's fav.anime character turned out to be gay/les.. They shouldnt just choose any characters from any anime with the same gender and make them lovers or etc. It is downgrading those 'straight' anime(s) ~ =(

But... how would you know the author didn't hint at all D: You will never know.. cause the author doesn't say I have just hinted that he is a bit you know what. The author might have done it slightly that no one notices ^^
If the author didn't mean anything imagining is not a bad thing... It helps with creativity and you can write awesome essays with that for English. (: but then homosexuality usually happens when there are more girls than guys or more guys than girls... I think. <--- correct me if i am wrong.

if you really hate it so much, why not just ignore it? is it that bad, are you THAT homophobic? i, personally, don't mind yuri. i dont watch it, but i dont go posting crap on an anime website about it. honestly, an ANIME site? i mostly watch shows with yaoi or yuri for the plot lines, not always the smut so why bother wasting your time putting up a post that will only cause people to fight over something easily avoidable?

Don't like yaoi?
DON'T WATCH IT.
