This pretty much sums up how most of us feel about yaoi.
Yaoi (if anything) mocks the LGBTA community by using negative gay stereotypes like seme, uke, and other such tropes within the genre, like the tendency to ignore the complete existence of females or to bash them
(which is a common trope used in yaoi mangas). :/
Not only that, but I can't tell you how many times I've run into yaoi fans saying they supported 'gay rights' when all they did was squeal over two poorly drawn anime guys with badly proportioned features raping one another (or something else along those lines). Not to mention yaoi literally
SEXUALLY OBJECTIFIES gay men. It often strips them naked, dresses them in fetish attire, portrays them with raging boners, turns them into pedophiles, rapists, or makes them physically abuse one another in both physically and emotionally violent relationships.
Yeah, that has absolutely NOTHING to do with LGBTA rights AT ALL. The LGBTA community consists of ALL kinds of people, not just men but WOMEN, old people, those from other cultures, DARK SKINNED PEOPLE TOO, so on and so forth. In sum yaoi doesn't help the gay community, if anything it hurts it
. Gay men aren't all bishies, light-skinned, young and stylish...and they certainly aren't for straight females to fap to (which consists the majority of yaoi fans, some of which even pretend to be men online). The entirety of yaoi is nothing but a very negative stereotype about gay men.
And it's honestly the same exact thing as when a straight guy drools over two women being together. Same damn principle, different label...and I'm disgusted by them both for turning human sexuality into porn material for themselves. Stop turning homosexuality into a fetish. It's disrespectful to lgbta people, b/c they're PEOPLE dammit, NOT sex-objects for you to get your panties (or boxers wet over).
*This stamps counts for all other genres like yaoi too (like slash, m-preg, yuri, shounen-ai, and shoujo-ai, since they usually portray lgbta culture in a very unrealistic and seriously distorted light).
In sum, yaoi, yuri, genres like these < real lgbta people and characters. And you know I'm right. >:[
