Just Want More Yuri by StarDragon77 Just Want More Yuri by StarDragon77
A while ago I was looking over some of the stamps that I had in my journal and I gave a little more thought to one that I had that says, "Tire of Yaoi, We don't hate, we just wish you'd do something else". I gave it serious thought after trying to defend my own viewpoint to a few people. I don't hate yaoi myself, although some of the yaoi fans can be a tad irritating.

Such as saying that, "most yuri is pointless". To that, I say that the reason for it is becuase probably because we as male readers and writers of yuri aren't interested in relationships and just want to see the sex portion of it. That's probably the biggest reason, but my own theory is that it takes a certain kind of writer to really get into both the sex and the relationship parts of it. And from what I've seen, yaoi and shonen-ai gets the most of it.

Of course there are some shoujo-ai's out there, but then again they've been around so much that it goes without saying that yuri can be done with them. The ones I have in mind (off the top of my head) are "Sailor Moon" and "Revolutionary Girl Utena".

Though recently I had an idea and I'm not sure how well this'll go over, but perhaps someone with an idea for yuri should get together with a yaoi/shonen-ai writer and help bang out the kinks and give it a greater look and feel.

Still just ideas so let's see how it turns out.

Yaoi's pretty popular. Makes me wonder the Male/Female ratio of anime fans as a whole. I agree with this stamp either way.

A lot of times when i see anything yuri, i really get interested in the sexual aspect, but alongside that, the relationship aspect is just captivating. I've even read stories with only the relationship aspect. Something about it tends to be... Invigorating in a way.

Sorry, I don't know about the iPad part.  But what I do when it comes to adding stamps is I copy the "thumbnail address" which is in each of the stamps pages and then paste it into a blank widget.

I usually don't look for yaoi, so I'm not sure.

 

I actually know someone who researches good yuri stories, manga and anime, though!

I mean, I am a male that love writing high-quality yuri. Then again, I came to know about Yuri through good Yuri Anime like Strawberry Panic, Maria-sama ga miteru and Sono Hanabira.

Please, don't single out as female being capable of writing quality yuri stories. I always hate being singled out as the ONLY male.

I am a boy and I always think that I am the only male that loved writing Yuri that have meaningful character development before getting into the sex. That's a good thing, right?

I actually prefer stories (and shows) like that.

A new yuri called Riddle Story of Devil is developing character before even hugging and I think that's great. :iconmegustaplz:

Actually, all in all, I would say this now, Het, yuri, or Yaoi, shouldn;t be all about sex, sex, sex. It should also be about character development and emotional bonds together, and shouldn;t be plain gratuitous sexual activities, right?

You can find alot of Yuri if you just search long enough. You'll be surprised by how much Yuri you can find in some porn sites compared to Yaoi. IMO, I don't mind either. I prefer reading Yaoi than reading Yuri but this is a preference.

Well, at least you're not rabid about it. I mean, there are yaoi fans that get defensive and confrontational if you mention other types of pairings, if you know what I mean.

Cool ^^ See that's what you do. I heard some people say 'I want more yuri/hetero than yaoi' and they expect yaoi fans to actually draw more yuri and hetero instead of yaoi. So I just tell them 'If you want more yuri or hetero, than draw more of it'. I don't know it just bugs me when people make or try and force others to draw something they don't like drawing or writing you know? ^^; Ah forgive me if I rambled by the way, bad habit of mine eh heh heh :bows:

Yeah, believe me, my own blog has quite a few rants in it.

And don't get me started on "Twilight". I already wrote a 10 page essay on why its such an atrocious story.

Eh? Ah that's okay ^^ I personally don't mind the series, but it's okay if you dislike it. I rant about stuff to time to time...it used to be a lot of rants but I tried calming myself down a little.
