let's be real, we only ship the hot characters together... we never ship ugly ones together. like who actually ships "Choji" from Naruto with any character?



We are all shallow humans here... that's my honest answer.

This isn't actually a thread about gay rights,marriage or anything like that (Why do we even need to discuss that issue anyway just let people get married if they want XD).

What i mean is why are males so fascinated by the idea of lesbians and females gay relationships. We have Yuri and Yaoi in Anime and many people will draw that with characters from shows that have nothing of that in it. What is it about these things that people get so invested in?

Take a show like Black Butler for example in Japanese terms it's a show aimed for younger males it's far too violent to be aimed at girls but there are a lot of girls who like the show especially in the west and they make Yaoi pairings of characters. They especially love Grell a comical transgender character and it seems to be a big reason why girls flock to the show about a rich boy who sends his demon butler to kill people.

Why do you think the image of guys kissing guys and girls kissing girls is so fascinating to people especially in the Anime community?


Girls less violent? Ah stereotyping. I guess you've never heard the other stereotype about the female of the species being more deadly than the male.

For some people I guess because it's slightly Taboo & it gets them a little in to it I guess? for other I imagine it's just an interest in that side of life?

Fan service bugs me slightly, unless used in humour like Master Roshi, Jiraiya, etc, however I don't mind same sex relationships in anime.

... The same reason we're "obsessed" with heterosexual relationships and slice of life romance anime?

I mean, there are some people who just fetishize it, but I just enjoy seeing romance. And I dunno, in my regards to shipping, I just see two people that have a certain chemistry. Both straight and gay.

Well... I'm not obsessed with it. Speak fo yoself.

Several reasons I can think of.

1) Straight people are somewhat intrigued at how same-sex couples work. (For whatever reason.)

2) Some people (mainly guys) are turned on by fantasizing two women being intimate; conversely, women are also fascinated by the thought of two guys being intimate, especially in a romantic way.

3) It can raise awareness of the real world difficulties same-sex couples face in a heteronormative society, and as a result it's also good drama when written properly.

4) Gay or straight it's always nice to see diversity and not the same 50s mom and pop crap.

Well, I tried, thanks.

I'm more obsessed with straight romantic relationships

so I don't really know why other people are obsessed with it.

I'm a OTP kind of guy and look for the most pure route pair, the one making the most sense. I guess I'm a purist, when it comes to shipping.

However I'm an even bigger bondage fan. So I would pair up

I thought it was just because a large portion of people who watch anime are horny sex-deprived virgins.

And also because of Moe.

yes

i mean really, even in shoujo/josei manga the love scenes (for the smutty ones) are always focused on the girl, like her boobs or her orgasmic face or something, and the guy is usually completely clothed and his face is hardly seen. like huh? if we wanted to see that we'd just go to regular hentai or ecchi or something

hence, yaoi. hot guys doing hot things is a turn-on. same with yuri, no dicks to get in the way of the boobs n stuff.

In many cultures, there's a "forbidden fruit" stigma to homosexuality/bisexuality. I imagine that plays some role in things.


Plus "novelty'.

and, of course, we're obsessive about sex all around.

To be honest, I think its cute that we do get obsessed with these things.
Everything does matter in this world just my own opinion, even if they are little.
When you figure it out, there are many other possibilities both good and bad.

Bolded because that....Really doesn't matter when it comes to demographic. Girls can like violence too and quite a few of them clearly do.

Basically, we like sexual acts and we like seeing people engage in sexual acts too. Sexual activity is one of the driving forces of man, so it's not surprising when we're drawn to something that stimulates us mentally or physically.
