*Some, (but not all) of the negative gay stereotypes in these fetish genres.
Some of the Yaoi, Slash, or Shounen-ai Negative Gay Stereotypes:
1. Gay men MUST be handsome or they don't count. There is LITERALLY no such thing as an ugly gay man in these genres, only pretty-boys or models. Also 'Bara' doesn't count. Bara is written by gay men for gay men and will often portray older, less-model type males who look like they could be actual people. Not the 'cutesy bishies and ukes' that plague yaoi/shounen-ai. Yes, if you haven't realized it by now, gay men don't come in that pre-packaged box of: every gay man is handsome and young. Like really? REALLY?
2. Gay men MUST be light-skinned or they aren't as interesting. These genres tend to cater towards Caucasian or Asian gay men only (or just anyone who is light-skinned). There is pretty much no mention of African, Indian, Middle Eastern, Hispanic gay men, etc. unless they're handsom
