Editorial: Yaoi redux plus some original artwork

Don't be jealous Behoimi, it's just fantasy.


A little over 24 hours ago I made a post questioning the world-wide epidemic of yaoi and it's exact mechanisms.

During this time some have accused me of either a) hating gay people or b) being a closeted yaoi lover myself. The first notion is just ridiculous; my Mother is a homosexual man, and to hate gay people would be to hate the person who gave birth to me. And the second is just not possible, as it's already been made clear that Crayotic Rockwell is much of manly.

Yesterday, I changed a spare tire on a truck.

But with that out the way, I did decide to take stock and look at how these people may have come to the conclusion... and I realized that I do a lot of gay humour on this site (and I mean gay, not ghey. Although the last one is up to user discretion).

So I want to take this time to apologise for all the humor poking fun at people's sexual orientation.

Because I should be mixing it up with racial gags too.

I did these back in Summer of '65, after I got my first real six-string '05 after I got my drawing tablet and actually did productive things with my time other than pointless recaps for an anime blog. I figured I could make a regular thing out of it and be famous on the interweb like all those other chumps that get huge fan followings from barely amusing strips.

I lasted about 2 or 3 weeks I think. But still, it was something.

Hung will probably hate me for this post, but Blogger doesn't have catergories to define this off-topic so what can ya do? :) I guess I can try to make it anime/blogger related in the wrap up, and reflect upon the state of the yaoi and what I now know, one day later.

Well, I now know that men prefer to watch The L Word than fat lesbians with crewcuts making out, and that yaoi is made "for women by women." Just like those shitty Jennifer Lopez movies, albeit with knobs.

Yaoi still remains a facinating phenomena to me in that sense. And I'd get a real giggle out of it becoming as mainstream as mediocre romantic comedy films. This is something we should all be pushing for, I think.

A question is still left though: would FYGs (a sighting of at least one has been made) get into live-action yaoi (or for a better term: "gay porno flicks") if it was made with their sensibilities in mind? You tell me.
