Fair enough.

As a yaoi fan and as a straight girl, all I can say is that it thrills me a lot to see two guys kissing so I will always prefer the two guys over 1 guy+1 girl. I don't have a problem with it, it's just a preference =}

Hey we can like het stuff too, just because we like yaoi and/or yuri doesn't mean we can't like hetero. @_@ Silliness.

Variety is the spice of life.

I think the point of it is you don't have to see your own sex.

Never once been asked that. I never heard of any of the fans talk about heterosexuality but mind their own business. This is from a B/GL fan.

There's nothing wrong with it but yaoi/yuri is romantic since there's a forbidden love element to it.

Also, men and women are so psychologically and physically different that gay relationships make more sense really. A man and a woman are more likely to argue or split up.

Hmmmm..... I'm a Yaoi fan, and I've never been asked if I had a problem with heterosexuality. If I ever was though, my answer would be this: I don't have a problem with heterosexuality per say, but I tend to find most canon straight pairings to be boring. Of course, there are exceptions (there are some cases where I like the canon straight couple and can't bring myself to pair them with anyone else), but in many series I tend to feel more chemistry between two male characters than I do between the canon straight couple. Also, in the case of fanfics, I feel that yaoi relationships tend to make for a more interesting story than hetero couples (especially canon hetero couples. After all, fanfics are usually about exploring "what-if" situations that would never happen in canon so having canon pairings be the main focus kind of defeats the purpose of fanfiction in my opinion unless you going to explore an aspect of the canon pairing that wasn't covered in the source material).

Also, if you are wondering how I feel about Yuri pairings, I'm generally okay with them. In fact, I occasionally watch/read shoujo-ai/Yuri anime/manga. And while I don't ship non-canon Yuri pairings as much as I ship non-canon Yaoi pairings, there are some that I do ship (such as Madoka/Homura).

Your insensitivity toward your fellow human beings definitely offended me. Don't claim your rude questions and lack of empathy is just you being "curious." Take your curiosity and shove it somewhere where it will never see the light of day again.

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.


isnt yaoi the same then? not only gay girls exist lol

Yeah but I'm speaking from experience. I don't find yaoi appealing so I didn't want to make assumptions. But I'm sure everything I stated could also be applied. Same sex relations are just more appealing in general I guess

What heterosexuality has to do with liking yaoi/yuri?

I like reading/watching yaoi more than yuri but I also like watching animes that has heterosexual characters too

It doesn't really matter to me as long I like the story and how cute the characters are ;P

honestly i don't think the gender should matter that much??? as long as two characters are genuinely in love, i think that's what's most important. i agree that they're more appealing though, since gay characters are rarely in media and what's even rarer is to see gay characters that aren't a stereotype/generalization or just super sexualised. i'm glad it's becoming more popular and accepted though

As a Gay woman I just want to see lesbian relationships being portrayed, it's that simple. I've nothing against Hetro stories but I see them all the time. I prefer Shoujo Ai to a lot of the more extreme Yuri school-girl type manga & anime as I'm more about romance than sex when it comes to my fiction.
