there's nothing wrong with identifying as a top or a bottom, but top/bottom roles and seme/uke roles while similar are WAY different. because top/bottom roles are REAL PEOPLE in REAL RELATIONSHIPS that CHOSE to be in those roles, while seme/uke roles are FICTIONAL PEOPLE in FICTIONAL RELATIONSHIPS in a FETISHISTIC JAPANESE GENRE that has a lot of problematic themes.

i.e the consent issues that shadowcell mentioned.


Ah, I see! I haven't gotten so much into yaoi as the actual, heh, gay male equivalent, known as bara (yaoi being aimed at straight women, bara being aimed at gay men). More about the difference for those interested is here on good ol' Wikipedia.

...In comparison to yaoi, gay men's manga is unlikely to contain scenes of "uncontrollable weeping or long introspective pauses"...


Shocked Oh. Yeah, I guess so. Laughing
