    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.

    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.
    Except on Tumblr where you're reaffirming how much better those characters are just by the virtue of being female and not heterosexual.

    All my ships are really more zany fan theories and concepts tweaks. I never understood how someone can care so much about someone else's relationship, imaginary or real.

    Ahh, that would explain it. I'm one of the only four people on the Internet who doesn't watch it.

    Honestly I couldn't even tell you the last time I watched TV.

    For my friends who are gay/bi, most of them cannot stand yaoi. It's moreso my straight friends who are into it, which REALLY has me confused. As for the conversation I mentioned, the friend who came out told her that he wasn't into yaoi, so she called him a gay basher and left our group. Last time I checked on her, she's still doing terrible tracings of animes and putting herself in with other characters, and writing terrible fanfiction to go along with it.
    She's 24.

    UGH HOW CAN YOU NOT TELL THAT THEY ARE TOTALLY IN LOVE.

    Are you blind because you must be because they are so totally in love.
    And by love I mean passionate baby-making.

    Same here. Especially that last part. A lot of my shipping is just as a joke. Some of them I could get if the earlier-mentioned standards were maintained, but like

    I'm not going to ship Soldier/Scout because scout's twelve they don't have enough common ground or interaction for me.

    Me neither. Hell, even when I had satellite, I just watched Stewart and Colbert.

    Same here. Well, they either can't stand it or laugh at it.

    Isn't it sad when a person with no potential puts it to waste?

    Incidentally, it's like the same argument for male triumphalism. "BECAUSE WE/THEY ARE _______."

    I mean, and I think I can safely say that most of the characters who people consider just for being t3h gay (canon or not) are bested by another character in their sex who is canon straight. For example, Fuu Hououji or Coach.

    Are we thinking of the same Coach here, or have I just played this game far too much?


    By far, the worst I've ever seen is out of the Kingdom Hearts fandom.
    EVERY CHARACTER IS GAY, EVEN WHEN THEY'RE STRAIGHT.
    Like, Organization XIII. They're Nobodies, so they technically can't even have sex, right?
    ...
    Right?

    Kingdom Hearts is knackered in a few unique ways. The Nobodies aren't supposed to have emotions by canon (if I recall correctly), which is contradicted in canon. But you're still right.

    I think you answered your own question, though. Or, in a more straightforward way, because it's a very good target.

    I like Adventure Time, it's a pretty fun silly kid's show. But I get the impression that the Adventure Time everyone else is talking about is a different show. Something more like Avatar: The Last Airbender. (which I don't care for)

    Cartoons aren't as fun to like anymore now that some of the shows have become all "geek chic" or whatever the **** it's called. Nerds ruin everything nowadays.

    That's another fandom that irritates me, mostly post-Korra because holy god did certain types of fans come out the woodwork. As far as I know, though, same show, but when you compare how certain people watch it to the actual show, they may as well be two completely different shows.

    Quite honestly I am all for watching and interpreting shows in a variety of different ways. I love to watch Scooby Doo for the cheese factor for example. I don't want to discourage that. There is just something a little off-putting about some of the stuff I see.

    I think there's a point where "different" interpretation stops, er, working, for lack of a better term.

    Hm, I'm not quite sure where I fall on this extremely large and prolonged rant about people on the internet who rant about fictional characters hooking up, so I think I'm best off just abstaining.

    Unless, of course, the fictional people are really really really ridiculously good-looking together. In which case I'm not sure why there's an argument. :/

    No offense, Cenobitic, but I agree with this almost too much. If the only times I'd heard about Justin Bieber or Jersey Shore were when people had something good to say about them, well, suffice it to say, I wouldn't know about them at all. And the World would be that much Brighter.

    On the plus side, that would be very meta.

    Also, looking around, this place seems to have gotten stranger since the last time I poked my head in. And it's been less than a week since that happened. I blame the Falcons losing.
