So... Shining Raichu just told me in the IRC chat that I should be more active here. So, here I am!

Anyway, I'd like to share a link that shows just how ignorant some anti-gay people can be. And this ignorance can have very dangerous consequences. Just take a look for yourself.

    Yeah, a lot of people who are over the top anti-gay, always seem to get caught with being gay though. I always feel whenever someone is trying to make something a taboo like being gay or watching porn, they always fall victim to it, as if they are guilty about doing it.

    Also, small text for me is fine. If I have trouble seeing it, I quote the message, and read it then.

    Yeah, mine is 1680x1050 and I can barely read it without shoving my face into the laptop and squinting :P

    Also, LMAO at that link. The story itself is horrible, but the picture of the homophobe is so hilarious that I really cannot take him seriously. Surely people can see through his nonsense when he's looking like that. But it just goes to show, all it takes is one guy with a monkey fetish to ruin it for everybody!

      No, Yaoi and Yuri are the extremes, the fluff and stuff is Shonen Ai for boys and Shoujo Ai for girls I believe.

      Yeah, that's correct. I think more people know what Yuri and Yaoi mean though, so they end up using it to describe shounen and shoujo ai as well.

        No, Yuri and Yaoi is associated with hentai, but it is the more common tag for PG stuff as well. Usagi already said the correct terms

        Yeah, I've seen Hetalia. Sweden x Finland is one of the pairings I'm hoping to get added to the list. I support that pairing the most as I role played with that pairing before with one of my ex's.
        Granted Sweden's facial features in the anime (especially the smaller eyes) is kind of a turn off, but I still like the pairing :3

        I laughed. I hope someone else did, too.

        On the issue of homosexual media from Japan, I always preferred the terms Boys Love (BL) and Girls Love (GL). They're nice and simple and cover everything, but I prefer umbrella terms most of the time anyway.

        Regarding that politician from Tennessee, I think it's dangerous what he's saying. He's equating LGBT people with AIDS and basically slandering both queer people and people with AIDS. Maybe I'm just used to ant-gay talk and it doesn't rile me as much, but the way he's not-so-subtly talking about AIDS as "the gay disease" with the implication that gay=bad so AIDS=gaybad makes me really angry.

          ^Here is a good video on this guy
          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmPWD4Ts05I&list=UUjNxszyFPasDdRoD9J6X
          Its made by TheAmazingAtheist, and there is probably a few swear words, so fair warning.

          People, especially people in power who hate a group of people so openly, and are still in office. Shouldn't be in office.

          the weirdest thing about the term Yuri is that it's also a name. in Tales of Vesperia for example, Yuri is a swordsman who is also good with his fists. I've seen so many dirty puns on that subject.

            ^I'm just taking a guess here, as I know nothing about the Japanese Language.

            But it might just translate two things to 'Yuri', that or it has another meaning to the word.

              I'd like to join, please. I'm bisexual, and this seems like a nice social group ^^

              Also, iirc, yuri translates to "lily".

                Allright, so Yuri does have a double meaning

                Lilly and Lesbians

                I wonder if it goes the same for Yaoi

                Don't correct me when I'm trying to correct someone. There's just too much correction.
                xD Well then, a lot of things seem to have been misusing these words, lol.
                Yuri as a name doesn't really make me think of that, because . . . well, If anything I'ma be reading yaoi, not yuri. lol

                @Scarf - Nope, I didn't laugh. I think the . . . joke flew right over my head. I'm actually not completely sure I'm grasping it one hundred percent. I'm grasping it, just not enough to make me laugh. That's sad, I like laughing ;~;

                @TwiDragon - Russia for the win, no? (Say no and I shall sick Russia AND Belarus on you. >:C)

                /can't think of anything more productive to say.

                  Yuri is the same world for the flower (and is written the same way). The association with lesbianism is an additional meaning. It's somewhat analogous to the word "gay" in that it was already a word (meaning "happy") and just took off in another direction of meaning.

                  Yaoi, supposedly, comes from the phrase "yama ga nashi, ochi ga nashi, imi ga nashi" - "no climax, no outcome, no meaning".

                  @TwiDragon - Of course! Anything involving Russia is automatically epic. I went as him for Halloween last year. :3
                  THOUGH, I dunno about Russia x Belarus. 1) Of course I prefer the yaoi (YES, I'ma keep using it like that :P) couples, and 2) Belarus scares the crap out of me. If it can make even Russia cower and cry in a corner, you know there's something wrong there.

                    ^Outside of Sweden, Belarus has a really nice outfit. It reminds me of a lot of the outfits in Touhou.

                    I'm not surprised that this thread went in this direction. The masscots for my school's GSA is one of the Hetalia characters, and there is constant role play amongst all my friends. I took the role of Sweden :P

                      I didn't know Hetalia was like that, lol. Or is it just all fan stuff, like Sailor Moon and all the lesbian fanfiction? xD

                      Also, kind of relevant.

                      Are all men stupid?

                      That's right.

                      o rly? :O
                      Time to convert to buddhism~ :D
                      Wait a second, I just realized that I don't give a crap about the pope. NEVERMIND THEN.

                      Well hey, once the thread starts heading in the direction of yaoi/yuri, Hetalia is going to find a way to worm itself in. ;3
                      @Toujours - No, I believe it's officially like that, it's just a very "light" yaoi. :P
                      And that is an epic picture. I'MA EAT THOSE PEEP BUNNEH FIG HATERS >:U
