Yuri Talk: I’m a Yuri Fan, Foo!

This next topic will be a short and sweet one tackling an easy question to answer. Basically: What do the people who know that you are a fan of yuri, think about the genre and you for being a “Yuri Nation Member?”

I'm a yuri fan, foo!

To get the topic started, my family does not know about my support for lesbian romance media and homosexuals in general. I say, if you’re gay, have a strong relationship with someone of the same sex, REALLY want to get hitched with said person and can in your country, go for it. As for friends that I have told about this because I trust them, some are cool with it and others don’t think about it too much.

Some replies I got were:

-Yuri and lesbian movies are better than real life lesbians because real life ones are bizarre.

-It’s really sweet.

-HAWT!

-Whatever. Everyone has their own tastes.

-Last, but not least, from my ex-girlfriend: “Cool.” She also said something along the lines of my own opinion on gay marriage but “Cool” was enough for me.

I already explained my passion for yuri in full detail in a previous post and many others afterward, so there’s no need to repeat myself. You all know what to do by now. Go for it.

    While at school the other day, my newest buddy asked me if I watched anime. I said that I recently started watching some shows. She asked me which ones, and I was somewhat reluctant to mention them. I told her a few, but she didn’t seem to know them, and I was even more reluctant to mention that they were yuri animes, or that I was watching them because I heard there was some yuri in them. I feel like if I mention it, she (or whoever I might mention it) will see me in a different way. And not a ‘good’ kind of different.

      I know that feeling. It’s safe to say that not everyone understands yuri. Another factor that plays a role is who you hang out with. Make sure the person is trustworthy before telling them…and if they think you’re weird after that…I dunno. I have yet to find anyone I’ve revealed this secret to that shunned me, but I would probably not talk to those people again…or rather, not talk about yuri stuff around them.

      I understand how you feel….from our school (which is an all-girls school) most of the anime fans are yaoi-fangirls, so it’s quite hard for me to mention yuri related anime/manga. Once i heard them mention yuri however it didn’t turn out very positive, they just stated biased opinions about how “disgusting” they found the genre to be, it’s not like I expect them to like it but at least be more respectful towards the people who do…it really saddens me that this society puts a stigma on anything they have less knowledge about.

        I know what you mean. It’s difficult liking something that others might not be into. In my case, I am just barely getting to know my new buddy, and I’d rather not push her away by being too specific in the anime I like to watch or other hobbies that are yuri related. For now, I’ll just stick to being a comedy fan and, unless the topic comes up, I wont mention the yuri aspect of it.

Idk this feeling inside but im sure i dont hold feeling for other girls ( i hope ) BUT i wish everything was normal , everyone should just accept yuri , they can accept yaoi , but why not yuri ? 😀

      Whatever the truth inside is, it has little to do with what kinds of sows you like to watch. I hope you find the peace of mind you seek and get to watch whatever you want without being misjudged for it.

    My prob ain’t really too big a prob, lol. Its hard to make real anime friends, cause i’m really just a yuri fan. Whenever someone recommends an anime i say i’ll check it out (usually i do), but what i’m thinking is, how exactly am i supposed to tell them that i really just watch one genre and that genre is about girl x girl relationships. LOL so on the inside i really do just wanna say “I’m a Yuri Fan, Foo. So its really more like i can’t be other people’s real anime friend cause i only watch one genre. LOL

    And i can empathize with the ^^ first comment. But for me its more that i’m just way too embarrassed to say it. (i’v been sheltered to an enviro where most people don’t discriminate so i really don’t have any direct discrimination problems, but i mean its not like i’m really out out and i’m bi so its not viewed as strangely. I”M JUST A SHELTERED PUPPY that doesn’t know anything bout the world of gay rights/discrimination)
