Me neither. I was under the impression that most gay people think yaoi is ridiculous horsecrap, too. And you have that point, too. A lot of the male-on-male non-canon ships make no sense. I mean, I guess we've gone over this over and over again, but it is understandable. Putting two dudes (or two ladies) together just for the sake of having t3h gayz is really ****ing creepy.It was a nightmare in the DeviantART community, which is one of the many reasons I left it. I don't know where this sudden lust for imagining two male characters humping each other into Oblivion came from, but in most scenarios that it's proposed in, it's either completely inappropriate/disgusting to think of, or it just doesn't work at all between the characters.
A close Internet friend of mine came out to our group of friends, and the one girl started freaking out because "SHE NEVER MET A REAL GAY BEFORE" and "SHE FINALLY HAS SOMEONE TO DISCUSS YAOI WITH DESU >3<."
I don't understaaaand.
Except on Tumblr where you're reaffirming how much better those characters are just by the virtue of being female and not heterosexual.Also, it's COMPLETELY OKAY for two dude characters to be put together, but shipping two FEMALE characters together is sexist and objectifying women because you're disgusting for thinking that way.
