I'm a fan of both. I'm not really sure how you're coming to the assumption that we have an issue with het.

As a fan of Yuri I can say nothing is particularly wrong with heterosexuality in literature per say. For the years of my life I've been raised with media that has depicted straight couples being lovey dovey and what not. Yuri goes against the standard of this so it's a sort of shock. Also being raised in a very homophobic family made yuri really exciting since it's like I'm watching something I shouldn't / forbidden.


you're a guy watching yuri it's not that forbidden


Yeah true. But the idea of going out with someone of the same gender was. So seeing this depicted in a story is interesting. As long as it's not Yaoi though

Personally, as a yaoi fan and female, it's a fetish that can never be real so it never loses it's arousal. There is nothing wrong with heterosexuality. I just already live in a straight lifestyle and want to "experience", per say, something different.

Only some of the crazies in the yaoi/yuri fandom have a problem with it.

I'm a fan of same-sex (yuri/yaoi) couples but mostly to me its based on chemistry/personalities not genders. Most of the time if I do get annoyed its when things point to a same-sex pairing but the story ends up doing gymnastics to have either a straight relationship or (for manga/anime) harem ending (because better to keep harem members pining over someone they won't get with rather than go with someone else). As for fan's annoying me, its usually when same-sex ships are treated as 'just close friends' and they proceed to say how any and every romantic gesture is 'just something friends do' rather than having romantic implications; otherwise I just see them as shippers of a different ship.


This just about covers it for me. As a yuri fan, I have nothing against hetero relationships at all. I just find them sort of boring as the default and annoying when it's stupidly obvious from the get go that Boy A and Girl B are going to get together regardless of anything that goes on in the series. That's not to say that this sort of predestination doesn't happen in yuri as well but at least in yuri the series more often tend to focus on the relationships and feelings of the characters such that even if Girl A and Girl B are obviously going to end up together then the series actually still gives a reason why.

And yes so much to the second part as well. (Sound Euphonium, I'm looking at you)

I'm not really into yaoi/yuri as separate genres because I believe same-sex relationships should be treated like the norm instead of being sidled into their own categories. Granted, I know both genres have characteristics unique to them and only them, but I think they'd receive less stigma if they were integrated seamlessly into conventional genres and plotlines.

Of course, that's in an ideal world where no one would have an issue with it. But at least Haruka and Michiru got away with it.

And I've never met any yaoi/yuri fans who hate on same-sex ships. They get passionate about their ships, but not enough to be hateful.

I'm a yaoi fan and I've been part of the forum aarinfantasy since a long time ago. Yaoi fans are more open minded than non yaoi/yuri fans. They even have a section for non yaoi animes/couples.

So, I don't know where you're getting the assumption that we have a problem with heterosexuality. We may not like the straight ships because we already have the gay ships formed in our minds but that doesn't mean we hate heterosexuality lmao

Unlike non yaoi fans, some of them have been very vocal about their hate towards homosexuals. So I could ask the same to you and any non-yaoi/yuri fan: what's wrong with homosexuality?

And if they don't answer with hate, they just say "it's not my thing" and that would be acceptable. So let's say that some straight couples are not our thing, ok? but we have nothing against it.

I'm sure someone, somewhere has asked that to a Yaoi/Yuri fan.

Someone asked if they have done it though?

Heterosexuality is disgusting oppression of women through interpersonal relationships. The idea that women need to be in a heterosexual relationship to be happy disgusts me. Heterosexual men account for over 50% of the rape against women, with a large segment of that being those who already knew their attacker, I.E. partners, fathers, etc. Men are inherently misogynistic creatures raised in a society of rape culture to "ask" women for sex, and women are obligated to give it regardless of whether or not to say no. Heck, we even force characters in mainstream anime to have heterosexual relationships regardless of their preferred sexuality. This is wrong. Yuri/Yaoi shipping serves to purify the stereotype that women need men, and that women can't help but fall in love with a man. Feminism is the name, lesbianism is the practice.
