They have mental problems or gay themselves.
Please no offense, it just makes me feel sick.

Honestly, I'm not the hugest fan of it, at all. I really hate some yaoi pairings to be honest. Although I'm fine with people liking it. Just because someone likes yaoi doesn't make them a horrible person, but not liking it does NOT make you a homophobe (just clearing the air for those who think the people who don't like yaoi / yuri are homophobic / against homosexuals)

The reason why people like it? I guess some girls find guys making out with other guys hot. Just as guys find girls making out with girls hot.

A friend and I actually attempted to discuss this in detail! We both casually read a bit of BL and watch a show if it's adapted from one of our favorites, but we have friends who are quite the fujoshi themselves. [we think we're just closeted XP]

If you think about it, most BL [Boys Love, meaning there is SOME plot] reads much like a shojo, right? One guy always fits a more feminine role, and it's hard to say that most yaoi is an accurate representation of a modern-day homosexual relationship. It's all idealized, especially in straight yaoi which is basically just a one shot hookup. xP We think this makes it sort of like a female idealized romance-two attractive guys to stare at [because girls already compare themselves to other girls enough, you know?] in a wonderful fairytale romance. Lots of sparkles, screentones, romance, and drama. It hits a lot of what girls look for in their love stories! Plus, there's the appeal of forbidden love. And, as the above poster said, guys find girl on girl attractive for whatever reason, so girls enjoying a male-male relationship would make sense too/.

Most yaoi is also written BY women FOR women, which makes sense as to why they like it-they're the target audience!

So those are some of our ideas. Make sense? XD I feel like I rambled. ^^; I hope it added something, lol.

I asked a hardcore yaoi fan. The answer I got is that boys getting together would face more obstacles and that's the romance u don't get from regular love stories. Sounds reasonable.

Ahh... Sounds sorta stupid. Would she read a story about a girl and her dog? I think there are more obstacles between a girl having romantical relations with a dog. Especially if the dog doesn't know she's into him. Oh brother!

And then somehow a horse gets into the picture... A dead one! What a twist!

Edit: I realized i may have come across as a douche. Sorry!

Well my friend told me she likes to watch Yaoi because love story is better, and it is more romantic...

I don't really care if someone watch this, I don't hate gay people, but I don't understand people who are not gay and say they like this more

I am a girl but I don't really like yaoi. It gives me a weird feeling watching it.

absolutely not!!!

it's because there's a certain feeling in it that you don't usually find in shoujo or shounen manga's
and there's some kind of magnet that pulls you in.... but we don't know what it is.... the next thiing you know is that you're watching/reading yaoi everyday!

donno
(from a guys perspective) sure maybe some yuri on the occasion is nice but everyday? I just wouldn't want to do that and yet I know yaoi girls read it almost everyday without fail.

Whatever works for them I guess but I haven't gotten a descent answer as to
"Why are you so rabid about yaoi?" yet from the people I have asked.

From my understanding about 90% of the time when the two guys do it the first time it isn't even consensual which raises even more questions about why they like it o_0 but as I said to each their own
