PEOPLE WHO HAVE GAY (MAN*MAN) SHIPS, PLS HELP ME
Ah, I don’t know if I will get help here, but listen (read) to my story. So I’m a college student who is taking an academic investigation course. So, basically, I need to write a monography about a theme I’ve asigned and by the end of december. The thing is that you can ask for a free theme if your grades were excellent the last semester before. And my grades were, in fact, pretty good. I thought it’d be easy because, you know, it’s a FREE theme, you can write about anything you want. However, I wasn’t interested in anything… And then I got this silly and funny idea of writing about why a lot of fangirls, nowadays, like so much turning heterosexual characters into gay ones. Like, you can have novels/movies/bands/series/comics with actual gay characters, but I’ve noticed (?) we tend to stick with this usual “oh, I know they’re not gay, but shhhh, I ship them and they’re already married in my head” thing. I even thought about taking my collection of fanfiction as a proof lol
But, honestly, I was just joking with my mentor when I told him that, however he was actually interested about the theme. He said “Do girls do that? I’ve never heard that before, that’s actually interesting…”. And then a teacher I have in another course told me that she was also intrigued about this. She even recommended writing about this with a psychological and sociological perspective…
I was like “ummmm, okay???” because, seriously, I WAS JUST JOKING, but everybody seem so intrigued and curious about this. And, well, I’m not going to deny I’d love to write about this… However, you can’t write an monography if you don’t have academic texts which can support your ideas and justify them. So, I’m asking you for help here. My native language is Spanish, but I know that I won’t find that much information using only that language. So, please, if you had any academic texts with information which could help me, please, let me know. I’m trying to explain what could lead fangirls to homosexuality characters and don’t tell me a “I do it bc I like it” because I believe there’s a deeper reason than that. It’s not something which is enjoyed by every single fangirl, but it’s definitely enjoyed by a LOT of them. Why does gay fanfiction excite you that much? Why do you think that main character looks better with his best male friend than with his actual girlfriend?? Why do you like gay so much when involves people/characters who are not gay??? Why do you believe they’s cute? Why do you believe they’re hot? Why do you think your gay ship is so perfect it hurts? Like, I’m telling you all here, I have hetero and lesbic ships, but the gay ones (boyxboy ones) excite the most. And I know there are a lot of girls like me out there, so please help me, I’m begging you.
I want to explain that conduct, why this satisfies a lot of fangirls so much. Just recommend me books and stuff to read, so I can give write about this while making sense. You can also message me or you can tell me to send you a message, it’s okay.
