<_<... I'm pretty sure my question wasn't off topic that much...

It wasn't, I was just hoping it was your way of answering 'no' to the OP's question, since from what have been said above you could find the answer to your question.

If someone likes traps/reverse traps does that make them gay/lesbian?

That's all about the looks, you have girls drooling over muscled men and you have girls that prefer guys with a more feminine look. The same applies to buys.
Is like asking if a person who likes fat people wishes to be or is fat.

^I'm straight and I like to read some shounen ai, and I don't think that I might be gay nor do I feel attracted to other guys, in other words I'm certain about my sexual orientation.
I also don't like yuri

Hmmm,, This is a tough question....I think fiction is much more "cleaner"+"safer" + "easier" compare to reality?
All you need to do is to turn on the monitor and the yuri/Yaoi is just right in front of you.^_^
I think most people who prefer Yuri/Yaoi in Anime are not lesbian/gay.
but if you never try the real thing,you will never know .

no, because some lesbians like yaoi and some straight women love yuri.

argument is invalid.

I don't get this, How can I watch two guys fucking each other and not be gay???

If I watch gay porn, it's most likely because I'm gay or bi-curious, I think the same should be applied with Yaoi.

I'm not hating on anyone, I don't have any ill feelings towards gays, but; if I started to watch Yaoi, I would think I'm no longer playing for the "straight" team.

Like watching two guys killing each other and not be a mental-sick psycho? The keyterm is fiction

I don't think that's the same, killing is frowned upon by society, there's nothing wrong with being gay.

Yaoi may be fiction in terms of the characters and story, but the actual act is something that happens in real life EVERYDAY, killing is not OK by any terms, unless it's a war.

Being gay is frowned upon by a lot of people... But I guess killing is more frowned upon...

I'm completely straight and I like watching/reading things about homosexual couples on occasion. It's romance, and I like romance.

This reminded me of something from a movie or show I've seen. Don't recall what it was exactly, but the joke/arguement was that everyone's a little gay/curious. Sure, you watch straight porn, but don't you love it when the guy blows all over the girl?

So no, I don't believe watching/reading yaoi/yuri makes you gay. Everyone's just a little curious and everyone watches it for different reasons.

Well, when you watch a blowjob scene, most of the time you are fantasizing about being that guy who is fucking the girl or being the guy who just cum shot all over some whore.

But mostly you enjoy watching the girl get fucked or licked or whatever, the point is you are there to see and enjoy the GIRL, not the guy.

I would say 70% of the porn I watch is Lesbians, 20% 3-somes or some kind of scene involving 1 guy and 2+ girls, and finally 10% 1 girl 1 guy scenes.

NOW, what the hell can I fantasize with watching 2 guys fuck each other???

You don't necessarily have to fantasize anything. You can just watch 2 guys fuck each other with an old kindergarten friend of yours just for the lols. Just like that, someone could have a reason for watching it without being gay or curious at all! :)

haha well Im a girl...I like yuri and yaoi,I Definitely not a lesbian.
But some guys like yaoi and the people think they are gay just because they like it...(I dont have anything against Gays or lesbian)


Don't be so sure, you are still a teenager. maybe you do have a thing for women and you don't know it yet. Maybe you are bisexual?

Well anyway i can't say about women since am not one but considering women magazines still have women on there covers i will say a woman body is considered as a pleasant side even if it's not your sexual preference.
Men on the other hand don't work that way.

So i think there is a bigger possibility of a man being gay if he likes yaoi than a woman being gay if she likes yuri. For straight men the view of manly naked bodies doing shit is like torture far more than it is for women watching women doing shit. I find it very hard to beleive that a guy isn't at least bisexual if he likes yaoi.

As i say girls are like cats. We all find them cute even if we obviously have no sexual desire. The same goes with beautiful women. They are a pretty side even by asexual standards (Notice how gay men still find girls beautiful while lesbians mostly find men disgusting). So an act between two beautiful creatures is not as bad to watch for a straight woman.

For the same reason women are a lot more tolerable to all the fanservice thrown for men. I tell you now. If anime had male fanservice in the quantity anime now have female fanservice, all straight males would stop watching anime. Yet girls still watch anime despite seeing cute fanservice girls every few minutes. Why? Because it's let awful for them.

Of course if there is a place where a straight man might tolerate watching gay male staff then that is probably yaoi anime and manga since they look further from reality. Hell half the guys look almost like girls.

YES, I have to agree with this, I can't find it in me to watch that type of stuff, I don't have anything against gays, but watching two males do that really puts me in an uncomfortable position and it is like torture, I have watched very few anime that have included yaoi scenes (Ouran was probably the only one) and I was able to get through it only because it was a comedy, if it had been serious, I WOULD NOT HAVE WATCHED IT. I also find it hard to believe that a male can enjoy Yaoi and NOT be gay.

Girls are biologically better looking and have more sexuality than men, I can understand girls watching ecchi and even yuri anime and not being lesbians. In fact I remember a female friend once watching R+V and enjoying it, I asked her if she didn't mind the panty shots and the fact that it was meant for guys, she said that she enjoyed watching the comedy and that the girls looked hot and that there was nothing wrong with enjoying an anime that featured bishoujos.

I just can't watch yaoi at all, even Ouran was too much for me (the twins..MAKE IT STOP D:) I love Yuri however since it's actually cute most of the times.

The only problem comes when these said "manly naked bodies" are more feminine than girls and their faces cuter than most girls.

East Asian male beauty usually comes from femininity, unlike Western male beauty with the manliness factor. This is why guys can enjoy reading/watching yaoi.

As for sexual arousal, there are many ways you may have not yet discovered. You may come to discover that gay sex can be more satisfying than straight sex...

And yes, it makes you slightly bisexual. Mainly because how perfect and cute the guys look like.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

The hypocrisy is going to kill me. Seriously, I'm dying here.

So, the conclusion we've come to is pretty much that women are objectively more attractive then men, and so can admire each other without any sexuality involved, but men are ugly and can't admire other man because that is omg gay.

Uh-huh.

Don't tell me you're surprised, it was always this way. Find a female who hates lesbians. It's obvious that they're more tolerant than men towards gays. Also, I've yet to meet a girl my age who's not at least bi-curious and wouldn't want to try it with a girl at least once.
Do you guys live under a rock or what?
