How To Write Sexual Tension Between Two Characters That Won’t End Up Together Without Accidentally Creating A Shitty Love Triangle That Nobody Wants - a novel by someone who isn’t me but who will hopefully let me read it because I seriously need to know.
so i’ve seen some fake woke folk insult kastle shippers, claiming they’re shipping incest because frank says karen is the kind of woman he wanted his daughter to grow up to be… are we gonna see these “woke” folk do the same thing to f/nnr/y shippers now that daisy has literally said their dynamic is like brother and sister? i’m gonna bet ‘no’ because we all know these people only care about fighting whatever social justice point benefits their own personal shipping agenda.

As a gay man, do you find the term 'yaoi' offensive? I'm trying to prove a point to my friend
I mean… not really? If anything, it just weirds me out a little, but that mostly depends on the context in which it’s used, I guess? At the end of the day it’s just a word, lol. Not a term I’d ever use, and it just sounds/looks a little odd to me whenever I see/hear it, but it doesn’t upset me or anything, if that’s what you’re thinking.
Idk what point you’re trying to prove, but I hope my answer at least made sense. XD I mean, I’m not a spokesperson for all gay men, either, that’s just my opinion on the matter. I know that some people get offended because there are cases in which others simply use it to ‘ridiculously sexualize’ us or whatever, but all in all, I really don’t see the point in getting your knickers in a knot over it, y’know? I’m pretty sure that most people that use it aren’t trying to be offensive or anything (but yes, sometimes there are people that can be kiiinda creepy about it, and in cases like that, I understand why that might upset somebody).
Overall, it’s really just a word, and words only carry the weight we give them. I guess just try not to be ridiculously offended/overreact over it for those of you seeing it, and try not to be creepy for those of you who use it. Idk, lol
