Cool

I'm quite a new shounen-ai/ Yaoi fan (I'm personally not so into Yuri but I have nothing against it) and I've liked all of the series/ova's that I've seen in the genre. For instance, Yami no matsuei is one of my faves because of the characters and it's just so sweet. Gravitation is hilarious in some parts and just fun to watch so I also love this series. I've also seen Fake, Earthian and Mirage of blaze... these are all good in their own way. Fake has a more open stlye and is just funny in the sense of one shy character and one openly up for it character (they mesh so well!) Earthian in one scene just jumps right in to the whole... ahem, and that surprised me but it was okay and I still loved it. As for Mirage of Blaze, this has barely any even shounen-ai parts except for some dialogue of feelings the main character has toward another male character... and a few scenes. Although I'm a fan of Yaoi/Shounen ai, I'm still in my fan infancy and find myself unable to watch more graphic shows. But that's just me. I am however going to be buying Tactics and Loveless to have a good watch ^_^ also another on my list is Sukisho (Suki wa mono wa suki shouganai! I think I missed a part but...) Which is known to have some more graphic scenes than those of Mirage of blaze and even Yami no matseui (But i'm willing to give it a try ^_~) So in answer to the original question... I have seen shows of a shounen-ai/yaoi nature and I'm a fan of them ^_^ This is just my opinion and others are allowed theirs.

And of course Sailor Moon. Michiru and Haruka and Rei and Minako are beautiful couples.

We need something of more flavor for homoerotic moments. Would Futanari count?

Mmmm, hot animated butt-sex...

Yeah. And I am guilty of reading fanfics that are Yaoi/Yuri.

So sue me. I'm a dirty old lady. At least leave me my cartoon porn.

You're all so critical!

Actually, they are worse than fags.

The Bible has a few sections about fags. But there are many, many, many more sections about hating people.

It's so hypocritical that it's totally pathetic.

On a similar note, there is some controversy brewing at my college, because some people are trying to make an official "Gay recognition week" at the university. I have nothing against people in that lifestyle, but quite literally, I don't think parading it around hetero people is the best way to go, it makes us uncomfortable, unless they're lesbians, but that's because I'm a hypocrite. They can go ahead and make a "Gay week" at my university, but I'm not going to be any part of it.

That is laughable. What consenting adults do in private it their own business. Making too big a deal of it will only guarantees a backlash. The gay marriage movement in the USA was a gift to the republicans. The state level Gay marriage initiaves were on local ballots and mobilized the conservatives get-out-the-vote efforts. It's possible that Bush got re-elected because of the fallout of well intended Gay rights folks.

When I was back in Uni, there was an annual a "Gay Blue Jeans" day. It would have been more accurate to have a gay bandana day where people purchased a unique bandana to demonstrate support. But, I still don't see the need to have people demonstrate support.

I quietly support the belief that the government should stay out of adult bedrooms. For this, I think supporting a completely non-sexual privacy rights group makes much more sense.

Anyways, this topic has been on the front page of the school paper for the last few weeks. It seems that this was brought about to commemorate the March on Washington in 1987, when people gathered in front of the White House to protest for gay and lesbian rights. There have also been articles such as trans-gender people, and how they say it's so difficult living in a world that hates them. It may not be my place to say so, but I think that's kind of disgusting. Gay and lesbian people legally have the rights of everyone else, except legal marriage in all states. And they can argue all they want, but marriage was always meant as a union between a man and a woman. They want to change the definition of what this ritual means for everybody, not just for themselves, and I personally feel that is selfish. Maybe the reason some people aren't tolerant of gays and lesbians is because they are offended by it, and gays and lesbians keep waving the issue around in the public.

One of the articles tells how an individual politely posted on a school bulletin board that he did not feel a recognition week was appropriate under the consideration that other minority groups did not receive such recognition. That person was met with much written abuse and harrassment from several people on the other side of the opinion. So clearly, homophobes are not the only people who need to learn tolerance.

I'm against homosexuality but I do understand their reasons to why they are pushing for equal marriage rights for same-sex marriages. Their simply fighting for rights that they believe that their entitled to. That's exactly that what us minorities did when we fought for our civil rights. Although this is true, I'm still against same-sex marriages because I'm against homosexuality. That doesn't mean that homosexuals should never be allowed to marry, but I'd prefer if they weren't allowed to do it here in America.

So, you know my stance on the question given in the first post: I don't watch it at all. And yes, I saw three episodes of EVA, and thought it was garbage and pondered why otaku's claim it as the best anime ever.

Funny thing is, a similar thing happened at my University: The anime society (whom I'm affiliated with) teamed up with the 'Queer' society for a joint screening where they pretty much showed all Y+Y.
I personally opposed such a movement for both:
a) ...... pretty much the same reasons raynebc stated above
b) the fact that this is contributing to the largely inaccurate public perception that anime is over-stuffed with sex and violence.
As part of the Anime society executive council, my complaints naturally really weren't taken that seriously - but at least I, unlike my detractors, had the decency to back my own arguements up

Based upon what I previously posted out in this thread, I believe Y+Y anime is no more fan-service than the synonymous perception of bouncing breasts and 'convienent' camera angles.
However I've noticed that part of the appeal is a familiar romantic perception: The more unattainable the person is, the more disirable they ultimately become. As such the number of female Y+Y fans drastically outnumber the male Y+Y fans (or so I've noticed).

Personally, Y+Y simply isn't my thing and there's nothing wrong with that. However what puts me off is the Y+Y mob being quite rabid about their passion.

Finally, I have nothing against the gays - I'm friends with people who are gay - but the only thing I find objectionable about them is the fact that the lesbians have more luck picking up good-looking chicks than I do

hmmmm...

Yaoi/Yuri ... well ... not my cup of tea I think the closest I've come to it would be shows like "Yukikaze" or the manga "Hana Kimi" or even in an oblique sense a series like "Vandread"

... to each, their own IMO when it comes to something like this ...
