Can I be honest? I feel a little bad sometimes that I like yoi because it's yaoi and I read somewhere that yaoi, in itself, is homophobic, which makes sense to me, because, it's targeted towards girls who, presumably, fetishize gay men. But I didn't know what yaoi was when I started to watch yoi, I had only learned of the term much more recently. I watched yoi because, being a queer female, I was desperate for gay content. Does that make me homophobic then, for watching and enjoying yoi?

Never feel bad about watching yoi, which isn’t a yaoi/porn anyway lmao obviously. It’s just got a gay couple instead of a straight one and just like i (gay male) ship my straight pairings in Doctor Who, i don’t see why straight girls and boys can’t ship a gay pairing?

An unidentified serial killer targeted young African American girls in Washington, D.C. between 1971 and 1972. Earning the nickname the “Freeway Phantom” due to his penchant for disposing of victims near freeways, this elusive killer snuffed out six young girls, molesting most of them before death. The killings came at a time of racial turmoil. Still reeling from the race riots, caused by the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., much of the community felt a widespread distrust of police. The general consensus was that police showed little to no interest in solving the crimes due to the race of the young girls. This belief was solidified when it was revealed that the D.C. case files went missing, never to be found again and DNA found on one of the girl’s clothing was lost in the ether. It is, of course, no surprise that the killer was never identified or brought to justice.

One of my least favorite things is when a younger person is interested in something or just like, talks about some general subject and an older person is like ????? what??? you weren’t even alive/you were so young when X!! like imagine if you started talking about how much you love Shakespeare and some rando time traveled just to tell you “But you weren’t even alive when he was writing!” like did you know that it’s a lot more fun if you expand your interests to things that haven’t existed exclusively in your lifespan & that the past will inevitably affect the present so it’s good to be aware of it
